    There is a Hard Dog available for the NC and is SCCA approved. That would take care of the roll bar issue Would still have get a lower seat to get the helmet from hitting the roof. All totaled, 3 - 4K$ on top of the cost. Maybe better to put that towards a 350z
  9. There are Miata roll bars available that let you keep the soft top. I assume they're also available for the NC. I had a Hard Dog model in my NA. Get the SCCA-approved ones, not the chrome 'sporty' hoop ones. Option 2: get a lower seat. I had a fibreglass race seat in my NA, sat right on the floor. I was really low. A 5'6" friend couldn't see over the dash. Getting in and out of a race seat is a bit much for some people for a daily driver, and fitting wide(r) race seats in Miatas requires careful planning/purchasing. Option 3: 350Zs are really nice. I've been impressed how well Chris D's has treated him over many years of service.

    Dude, the first rule of the brown board is that you don't talk about/link to the brown board.

    Yes you can run without the top but if your helmet protrudes beyond the roll bar, you will be unable to enter the track due to safety concerns. Theres also the part of having something over your head for the inevitable downpour! Perhaps the convertible part of the search needs a re-think?

    Road Block on the Miata NC! So I bought a helmet to help me gauge prospective cars and I got in a Miata NC today. I'm not a tall person (big, but not tall, 5' 10") and with the helmet on, it pushes up on the fabric convertible top and hits the lateral framing member. (seat was all the way back, all the way down). Drawing a line from the top of the wind screen frame to the stock roll hoop, my helmet would be about 2" above the line Thinking about putting in an after market roll bar, but I'd have to remove the convertible top totally. It's completely in the way of a roll bar and back angle brace. Or maybe putting in a lower seat? Are we allowed to run on the track with out a top? Nissan 350Z is looking good, I can fit in it with the helmet.

  22. After filming I was already contemplating an efi once I stumbled on the holly efi stuff compatible with the 4 cyl motors. still in planning stages on this though. Either way I can carb it then go to an holly efi system later. The draw through carb would have been easiest but working with what I have already. Sweet Might need some tips
  23. ive done it a few times. not a problem.

    Oh man... a blow-through turbo on a carb? I can see that being a complete jetting/fueling nightmare to get running properly.
