No way you will get that much air with the big V8 up front!

It runs and drives, looks like we might actually make the race in 2 weeks.  Exhaust sounds cool.

Re: V8 Miata - The Lemony way

This is spectacular. So excited for you guys

Re: V8 Miata - The Lemony way

Well, turns out this is a pretty decent motor.  Ended up 4th overall and 1st in C class with the fastest lap of the weekend by 3 seconds.  Sure was fun.  As Phil said at the awards ceremony, this is proof that the HT4100 series motor is the best pushrod engine to ever come out of Detroit.

Bravo, guys. This is a glorious machine, and the Corvette dash is a perfect addition. Best V8 Miata of all time.

Re: V8 Miata - The Lemony way

Bad camera angle, but here's some in-car footage from early in the second day.  The motor is just barely trying and we're running under 2:20 laps on average, I think that's probably why it lasted all weekend.  We kind of just idled around the track all day.  Fastest time of the weekend for us was a 2:12.9.

We went into the weekend expecting to wrench a lot and hoping to get all of us in the seat at least once.  We had no strategy for trying to win, just to go out and have fun.  It was as surprising to us as it was to everyone else that it actually lasted the race.  We had tons of fun!!!

Re: V8 Miata - The Lemony way

I love this. Well done.

Re: V8 Miata - The Lemony way

2 questions:

Do you have any pictures of your painting?
And any clips of hitting the curbing at speed around 1-2pm on Sunday?

It was fun running flags for the race.
