Great Miata for sale by an old track friend, Rick Weldon.

A fun bit of Miata history for sale

After modifying, preparing and building assorted Mazdas for other people for nearly 30 years, and Miatas basically since they first came out, I decided to finally build one for myself, and incorporate all that I’d learned to make a fun and reliable car that would be enjoyable to drive on the street, but that could also be fast on the track….and tailored exactly to what I personally feel the Miata driving experience is all about. So while it’s not a turbo or supercharged rocket ship, it’s definitely fun, fast, and extremely sweet in all aspects. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m borderline obsessive with finding that perfect balance, and with this 1991 model named Rakuza (all my cars get names – feel free to ask the origin of this one) I feel that I’ve truly found it. Besides figuring prominently (right in front) of the Miatas At MRLS group photos, Rakuza is also mentioned (with photos) in one of Keith Tanner’s books. Needless to say I’m looking for a good home, someone who will truly appreciate this car. This isn't just another NA that someone slapped some shocks and springs on and thinks is "special".

Engine
Custom 1.6L engine lovingly built by Jeremy Rine at P R Motorsports with 1mm overbore pistons and polished rods. The head was re-worked (ported and polished, with further head work magic by Rebello Racing, including some valve work) to optimize flow, as well as Euro cams.
Racing Beat stainless header
FM high flow cat (with their replaceable pipe for track-only driving)
Racing beat cat- back exhaust
Jackson Racing cold air induction
Racing Beat 1.8L aluminum flywheel, with Stage I clutch
Aluminum under-drive alternator and water pump pulleys
Powder-coated valve cover
Mobil 1 engine oil

Cooling
Racing Beat (Koyo) 37mm radiator

Suspension
Ohlins Road and Track dampers and spring package
Corner-weighting and custom alignment done by Brandon at Roger Kraus Racing
FM frame braces to add stiffening
Wheels -- SSR Competition (silver) with Bridgestone RE750 205/50-15 for the street and another set of the SSR's (anthracite) with Toyo RA-1's in the same size for the track.
Racing Beat swaybars front and rear (hollow front)
Racing Beat front swaybar brace
Beatrush front upper strut tower brace

Brakes
Rather than going with some of the big brake conversions, I opted to go a different stay with original equipment components -- both to keep the budget in line and to stay as faithful as possible to the original car. We adapted 2005 sport (same as Mazdaspeed Turbo Miata) brakes to the car, with surprisingly good results. Stopping power, and most noticeably pedal feel and responsiveness far exceeded our expectations. Oddly enough this is the aspect of the car most commented upon after people go for a test drive. I use stock OE Mazda pads for the street, and Hawk Blue for the track. ATE Blue brake fluid.

Transmission and Diff
The trans is the original 5 speed that came in the car, using Redline MT90. The diff is a 1996 torsen (including complete subframe/bracing for added stiffness using Redline 75/90)

Rollbar
Hard Dog Hard Core single diagonal

Interior:
Stock, with standard original equipment seats for street driving, Delrin
racing shift knob, and Clearwater speakers in the doors and headrests.
Track day seats that bolt right in: Driver’s seat is a Momo Mille Laggi race
seat, passenger seat Momo Start race seat. (Includes Simpson full 5 point
racing harnesses for both seats)
Steering wheel: Momo
Soft-top has been replaced with a premium Robbins top

Exterior:
Complete re-paint performed by FZ Restoration
Asking $12,000 for the whole package.

Car is in California, Rick is in Thailand
