Hmm, 2.0L motor and the wheels look bigger then 17x7 wheels or what came on the promo car.

Where'd we get the 2.0L info from - did I mess something?
I was going to ask Brian if they let him look under the hood.

Actually a little birdie told me this mock up of the race car has just the 1.5 under the hood because that's all they had in the USA to use for the race car mock up....

But the actual race cars will be 2.0, and all the USA customer cars will be 2.0.

Based on the differential cover being different in shape, can we assume aftermarket NC differentials won't work on the ND? Just curious if I should hang onto my NC's OS Giken or not.... :-)

It sounds like they are going to be offering fully race ready cars directly from Mazda, is that correct?

I expect it will be as it has always been with Spec Miata..... you can buy the Spec Package bits from Mazda MotorSports....and then YOU do your own install.

Tire looked to be just 205mm wide, so likely just 17x7 but car is lower and that makes it look better, more aggressive, and perhaps the offset more aggressive too.
