1.7.12 Spec Miata Progress

Posted: January 7, 2012 in Racing

Today was the big day – the first major mechanical work to be done.  I brought in the racecar to get the engine / transmission / and old stock tired suspension removed.  I then brought in the #49 Parts car to remove its engine / transmission / hardtop / and the SM suspension bits.  After a full day of breaking loose old rusted bolts and various other tidbits the racecar is now sitting naked on a lift with no drivetrain or suspension hooked up.   We also removed the entire front subframe with engine/tranny on the Parts car and will install the old stock suspension and brakes to create a rolling caged Miata chassis that I’ll sell cheap as a Chumpcar candidate.
