How come I saw Tom waiving feverishly after he rubbed some love on Randy but I couldn't see Randy waiving when he so kindly returned the favor?

Derek it was even better live! As a race fan watching two pro's going at it lap after lap was fantastic. That MX-5 can really take stop on a dime and turn. By the way great drive by you to put Tom in position to challenge for the win.

Great comments. I can't complain about the power much when we do have such good handling. It all evens out in the long run.
Thanks Flatout, we're going to get these trannies sorted one way or the other. Great job moving up into the top 10!
Bob, we'd liked to have had it a bit tighter but by this point in the race, with ambient temp being over 80 down in Homestead, and running these tires, it won't happen. We start the car about as tight as possible knowing the tires will go. These Grand Am Hoosiers are not much on stickiness. I would defer to JD or Tom, but I think the Toyos have more grip than these Hoosiers. They are nothing like the R6's.
This video reasserts my idea of Miatas in general, and that is that the Miatas/MX5 are very composed when driven hard. Not much steering input from the driver and not many wasted changes in directions or weaving in-and-out of line. I presume it is the nature of rear wheel cars.
