I feel like a tool asking this, but, should the eccentric bolt shroud (?) sit within the CA border (I'm sorry again, I have no clue what those things are called), or below it?

And, I'm having very difficult time perusing through all the setup material.

Is there any guide that will tell me things like "If the car is pushing to the right, adjust this".

If you are referring to the horse shoe thingy on the subframe that the cam sits in, it should be touching it (or really close).

Also, the cam should be above the bolt with the largest radius located between the 9:00 and 3:00 ranges (12:00 is ok, 6:00 is not).

From your question it sounds like you have it upside down.

Take your car to Dave and have him do a baseline setup for you. Mark the cams with paint to make sure they're not moving on you during the summer. Then get to some COM events to improve your driving skills. Seat time is everything.

Thanks, Greg. It looks like I have it the right way up. [Smile]

I'd recomend the "Spec Miata Constructors Guide". But I may be biased.

For shame, Dave!
What a shameless load of self-promotion!

Btw, how do I order?
