Jun 15, 2016 update to the Mazda MX-5 project car

Meet Our Project ND-Chassis Mazda MX-5

During the festivities of the 2016 Grassroots Motorsports Experience at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, we got the keys to our latest project car: a 2016 Mazda MX-5 Club.

So what’s the plan? We’ve been analyzing the car in stock trim, and ordering parts. Very soon we’ll start addressing different aspects of the car we think we can improve on most. Stay tuned.

Is this going to be oriented toward auto-x or big track?

Clearly you need a twin turbo, quad-wastegate 4-rotor in it, a la Radbul.

Install Goodwin Header, exhaust and tune to see if he is BSing or not about it putting down 193hp.

I'm interested in this too. The hardtop / fastback version may be my next car.

Test several of the suspension offerings in the car! Flyin' Miata just released their FM springs!
