I believe this series is meant for those that actually race Spec Miata in the real world, but there's usually a spot or two open for others.

Unfortunately, there hasn't been anything going on in the last two weeks, so possibly, the initial enthusiasm has died out for this...

Does anyone have the Mazda, Mazdaspeed, Toyo or SCCA logos created that they'd be willing to gift me?

I haven't figured out the whole storefront thing yet...or gifts, but am getting my car togther, So far it's looking good!


I really suck at driving this thing....I'm slowly ratcheting down the assists I'm using. [Razz]

Would another night be better for more participation?

Looks as if I'll be hosting for Sam tonight.

I'll start a lobby at 9:00 pm est, if you're on my friend's list, and I see you're online, expect an invite to the lobby.

If you're not on my friend's list, and want to race tonight, sent me a request before post time.

Thanks!

ive looked over the rules and whats available on the game and have come up with what i believe to be the best package.

NO intake modification(the 94 has a 1.8 which is not allowed any intake mod other than filter element)
lvl 1 exhaust
lvl 1 cooling
lvl 2 brakes
lvl 2 suspension(camber, caster, toe, and ride height, spring rate adjustable....damping stays at default)
lvl 1 sway bars(front and rear)
roll cage
lvl 2 weight reduction
lvl 1 lsd(must stay at default settings)
lvl 2 clutch
lvl 3 transmission(gear ratios must be 4.30 FD, 1st 3.14, 2nd 1.89, 3rd 1.33, 4th 1, 5th .81, 6th .81)
lighter wheels
tires up to 205 and 15" rim
lvl 2 rubber

lvl 1 brakes and clutch might be closer to the rules.....not sure.

but im coming up with about 272 PI

anyone with ideas?

Wanna give mine a try? I tried to build as close to the actual rules as possible. It's what we use on the other Mazda forums that I visit.

Official Spec Miata Setup

1994 Miata

Engine/Performance:

-Stock Intake
-Street Exhaust
-Street Oil and Cooling
-Everything Else; Bone Stock

Suspension/Brakes/Chassis:

-Street Brake Upgrade
-Race Springs and Dampers (Spring Rates 700lb Front and 325lb rear; per Mazdaspeed Spec Miata suspension kit) Ride height unlimited.
-Race sway bars set to 27 front and 15 rear.
-Roll Cage
-No weight reduction to help meet 2350lb minimum weight.
-Everything Else Stock
-Camber/Caster Unlimited

Drivetrain:
-Street Clutch
-Street Transmission Upgrade (short shifter;gear oil)
-Everything Else Stock including torsen diff.

Wheels and Tyres:
-15 inch Team Dynamics wheels. (or any of equal weight) I use the Konig Daylites because they look like 6ULs. The car ends up at 2348lbs with these, but the P.I. and performance don't change.
-Sport Tread Compound
-205/50r15
-Tyre Pressures Unlimited (best in mid 20's range)

Aero:
All Stock

Your Miata's Performance Index should be E-246

now see theres another issue. weight. so does forza add the weight of an average human to the weight of the car? is the weight of the car the same as on the track?

so the question then is do you count the weight on the screen, or do you add your own weight to that?

i guess the easiest and fairest way is to go with whats on the screen.

Also in 94 the LSD was an option, so its impossible to know if the stock car in the game has it or not(and with that whether it has the 4.30:1 gearset). So in that case, the race transmission has to be considered so that gear ratios can be set to factory.

Stock in the game appears to be 4.10. I just let it be.

Like I said, the setup is as close to the actual rules as possible. With a race gearbox, you'd have the EXACT ratios, but it really wouldn't be like a stock box, would it?

I was trying to see if I could set up a Spec Miata on Forza 3 but I really don't know much as to what I should use for the suspension adjustments. I am new to Spec Miata all together so I am lost. haha [duck]

What times are you all running at Road Atlanta?

I have built a few of my own "spec" miatas, but I have been using just suspension, tires, and weight upgrades to keep the car in the correct HP range... neglecting weight (which doesnt mean much in forza).

I'll put together a car following the guidelines here (whos guide should I follow?) and get into some races with you guys.

Not to plug myself, but I think mine is a good choice. Its the one we used on themazdaforum.com, clubroadster.net and it leaked onto a couple of other forums as well. A lot of people use it.

Trial and error? Mess with it until you find a caster/camber balance that you like. I add camber until the tyres have even temperatures inside/outside/middle while cornering. [Wink] I don't remember my caster/camber settings at the moment.

Everybody that ran this last year used the specs from page 2 of this thread. I would say if you're gonna run with them, you should probably run the same specs.
