You guys were in such a hurry to get this thing ready to go that the current configuration isn't quite clear. Can we get an update on sway bars and bracing (if any) currently on the car? Looks like the front brakes are still the Goodwin budget Wilwood big brake kit vs the intended Stop Tech kit.
Hopefully the fresh brakes, and potential boost increase in the final session will allow Ryan to cut a few more seconds and climb up the leader board a bit more. Pretty tightly grouped in the middle of the class currently, so every second can mean a place higher or more.
Surprised to only see one Miata on the competitor list this year - thanks for representing
Yep, the Stoptech brakes planned for the car didn't fit without 5mm spacer and we didn't have room for that. Added new OSGIKEN limited slip because we knew our power level was getting beyond what stock Torsen would live with, that OSGIKEN when new is so tight it typically adds oversteer, and we needed more roll resistance, so for both issues we countered with Progress RX8 front bar. Still got the MeisterR coilovers in there but bumped spring rates to 13kg front and 9kg rear. I think just factory bracing everywhere currently. Our 17x10 wheels and Yoko A052 255/40 tires. Rear Nine Lives wing that we had in our return bargain bin for shipping damage, front splittler is wood that we cut with jigsaw and rattle can painted black, with additional air dam additions by Moti. Two oil coolers that were discards from other projects and that still wasn't enough, will likely use really big cooler that came off NCLIGHT for next event with this car. That's about all I can think of now, but Ryan likely has more to talk about when he is back in 2 days.
