Fun to see a Miata Topless. Need to hook up the rest of the AIMS system but the unit as a stand alone is great! [thumbsup]

Wow, that was just plain painful to watch myself toss the thing off track. haha. I could blame it on the understeer I was battling all race long, but that wouldn't be fair to the car.

Great racing with you as always, Shawn.

Nice racing fellas, good to see mutual respect between race drivers, and that track looks like a hoot!

Odd to see a topless Miata in the US, we race topless excelusively in the UK and I do prefer it (I also race many enclosed cars).

Hmm, Shawn, do they still run that 25 hr enduro?

Just about to post some vids of my weekend in the UK MX5 Cup.

Hey Maxx yep That NASA 25hr is a huge event to say the least. If you looking to get in a ride just toss up a few posts and words gets out fast.

Thanks for the great post as well!

I would prefer to race sans top as well but rarely see it. I've heard it is because the car is slower on the straights due to extra drag. Why is it more accepted in the UK if this is so? Is it required per the rules?

regards
