  • NoiseRacing's Miata Build

    Should've started this when I got the car 2 years ago, any way here we go. Car is a 1996 miata A package car was purchased with 92,00km and has never seen snow.

    The day I brought It home:



    Then over the course of 2009 I installed a GV lip, HDHCDD rollbar, Moss Low Pros, short shifter, tow hooks, and relocated the license plate with my own bracket. I also ditched the soft top.




    Drove the car at 2 track days last year and had a blast, so I figured I'd spend the buck on coilovers. These showed up late January 2010.


    And were instaled 2 days later, along with TSI's, OEM rear mudgaurds and rear spec miata hard top brackets.



    June the car got on the road for summer and I put in some speakers in the rear deck and a NRG suede dished wheel along with a gen 2.5 QR and short hub.



    Still playing with ride height and alignment specs. This winter I'm going to pick up some good rubber and 8" wide rims, along with a bucket and harness This car won;t see the track this year to do my new jobs hours (6 days an week 10 hours a day). Probably after next summer the car will start to feel slow on the track as it is this year on the road. So the solution will be boost!

    And a shot from last night to finish of this long belated first post

        Good luck with that. That's the kit I have been working on for 3+ years. It's a pain in the ass trying to get everything to fit and flip. Sorry for the thread crap.

        What wheels are you looking to get? 6UL's?

          Yep a set of nickels have been my dream since before even getting the car. But I'm curious as to what 949's new XTR wheel is going to look like.

            Update Time

            Drove the car in a couple track days with a buddy's old heliums wrapped in RT-615s love the way the car handled. So decided to finally get some wheels and tires. I cheaped out and went with 15x7.5 +45 TRMs with a 205-50-15 AD08 since I had a $100 rebate from Yoko. Because of this offset i got some 6mm spacers, I also got some forged aluminum lugs from 949racing and damn they are light.

            [205-50-15 on the left, 185-65-14 on the right]


            [Sexy light lugs, weight equivalent to 3 quarters and 3 dimes a piece]

            Along with theses I got some frame rails from Boss Frog to cover my crushed rails and try to help with the famous miata shimmy.


            Also Tinted it and finally got a rear lip in the R-package style, which was offered on 95 R-package miatas. Now I just have to trim my mud flaps to get them back on the car, then spray some paint on the rear.

              I like it. How do you like those Stance coilovers?

                No pics of the wheels? Tires are hot though.

                  Scotty I was decently surprised with the ride quality,performance and customer service that stance has. many people have had issues but I have had zero besides my own stupidity in breaking and adjuster on install, which stance was quick to send out free of charge. for the price I paid new I cannot complain own bit.

                  James tires are mounted on the wheels and they are an ugly gray colour( was only available in one colour) they will be getting painted come the warmer weather. I will post pics on the car the way they sit and then after they are painted pics. I plan on tracking it alot more this summer so hopefully if all goes well some 15x9 6UL's with some R-comps will be in store for next season.
