More Supercharged MX-5

Most people get to take a break during this season. Not I. I am living and breathing supercharged MX-5. While I admit that it is the last car I ever thought I would ever be caught driving around, I have learned to enjoy this car. Last month I rolled up in an MX-5 to the Super Lap Battle time attack and the C-West/Hankook guys were questioning my masculinity. After spending a lot of time with various MX-5s, I believe that I could build one that would be pretty damn quick and make those dicks shut the fuck up. MX-5 owners face it: your car is driven mostly by hairdressers. It needs modification to bring out it’s potential. Anyhow, the Cosworth supercharged power makes this car WAY funner to drive. The car I am driving around is pure stock so it isn’t that fun even if you turn the VDC off, but it has straight line grunt believe it or not. Driving around Mazda’s Mazdaspeed test mule with supercharged power was absolute fun with the Koni coilovers, LSD, sticky Advan Neovas, and European final drive. The power and LSD lets you hang the rear out and steer with throttle at will. Dave Coleman did a bad ass job setting the suspension up on that car. Anyhow, enjoy your holiday. I will after Wednesday. For now its more logging and calibration…
