you realize you could build their car for less than 10k right?

NA Miata: $2500
JRSC setup: $1600
Dyno Tune: $800
FCM Race Coilovers/Camber bits: $1400
Diamond Racing Steelies 13x8.5 $400
225/40/13 Hankook Slicks (what they run) $644
Roll Bar $500
Hitch: $200
Auto-x Trailer: $550

puts you at just over $8500 for their exact car. minus exhaust of your choice.

Theirs is a NB miata. Also has a hot side mounted roots charger with a legit FMIC for it. Little bit harder and more expensive than just an NA with a Jackson racing But still probably under $12k spend.

That being said $12k into the G would make it prepped for ESP so... I'll stick with the car I already own.

fair. NB would be more expensive but is also 200lbs heavier so figured get a 1.8l NA so you save the 200lbs to make up for the driver skill difference.

also thats how the JRSC is for the miatas. they just added a custom FMIC which wouldn't be more than $500 to fab up.

see? Stock:

that front tube is where the intercooler would wind up being inserted.
