A new race car destined for hillclimb duty. SWMBO said I needed a full roll cage and that I couldn't put one in the Miata, so I got to buy another car!

1987 RX-7 GXL 111k on the chass, 23k on a rebuilt 13B. No smoke, no hesitation.

Engine: K&N air filter, Racing Beat cat-back exhaust

Suspension: Koni adjustable struts

Brakes: Corksport stainless steel brake lines, Brembo brake rotors, Hawk HPS brake pads

Wheels and Tires: Stock wheels with new Fuzion HRi 205/60/15 tires

Plans: She's getting gutted and caged! 15x9" steel wheels and 255 r-comps Flatout motorsports adjustable top hats Toe-steer eliminator Mazdatrix road racing header
