San Diego SCCA Match Tour yesterday, got the win in CS. Tough day on almost no sleep for me, had to rally hard to get just a bit ahead of my buddy Scott for the win. Car was best it has been, as the driver I was less than my best, but together we got the job done.

Our CS setup continues to evolve, must be on rear bumpstop formula number 5 at this point, it is what you see below. Cut off the smallest 'donut' from a pair of our hardest stops and then shaved them under the length of the stock ND2 stops. This is a lot of rear stop rate, if we used top dollar compression adjustable shocks we would not need these at all, but the goal is a CS package with the affordable 'off the shelf' standard KONI sport shocks. This is not a recommendation that everyone go and do what you see here, this made so much oversteer the first time I tried something similar that we initially retreated to a mix of medium and hard rear stop. Eventually decided to try something hard on hard again and LEARN to drive it. YES, I did spin this setup in practice, so did co-driver Greg. But in the end we both prefer it once we figured out how to drive it. Car has won two events in a row on this setup now, going to leave it alone for a while.

Did you know that all new ND2 Global Cup Cars come standard with the Carbon Miata Grille for improved cooling?
