Anybody interested in OEM 1.6 clutch and what I believe Fidanza 7.8lb flywheel before I start posting elsewhere? Josh can vouch for condition. New flywheel friction plates when needed are $60 from Goodwin.
$200.

My existing harness is what Mazda put in the car. Probably just need to install the roll bar and start combing the classifieds for gently used items, (don't even think about adding a comment here about someone's mom, sister, or hairdresser!).

Re: Official PDX Lounge

At least Audi is smart enough to demand equal safety devices for passenger and driver. My only concern would be if you wanna use a HANs, do you need to provide one for the instructor too? Ha.

Can't be worse than Alfa...

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Have to check out what type(s) of equipment is required. Hope to have a chance to drive PIR this year.


Mobius is correct, here is the text from the event site:

Convertibles and roadsters are not permitted to run high speed driver training or lapping events unless equipped with an approved aftermarket 4-point roll bar or rollcage in the car, and 4-point ASM(anti submarining), 5-point or 6-point harnesses. Equal restraints must be provided for both the passenger and the driver. For example, harnesses with 4, 5, or 6 point mounts used by the driver, must also be provided for the front seat passenger. The roll bar must pass the “broomstick rule” such that a broomstick from the top of the windshield to the top of the roll bar is over the head of the driver. The TT convertible, A4 Cabriolet and S4 Cabriolet will not qualify for tech inspection without an aftermarket roll bar.

Just have to focus on the roll bar install and look for an HPDE event that will let me use my existing harness.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Has Audi relaxed their requirements for convertibles? Last I checked (been a couple of years) they required full blown harnesses, not just a roll bar.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Hey guys, I got a bit of a winfall, from a class action suit that I wasn't even aware of, seems that TIAA-CREF shorted me when I rolled it over to another fund. It was enough for a roll bar. I ordered a Boss Frog Clearview It arrives tomorrow. Not sure I have time to install it before Nov 1 Audi event a PIR which I really want to try and attend, if they will let a novice in a Miata in. If it is a go, I really don't want to do a rush job and butcher my interior any more than necessary. Any suggestions for an installer, if I don't have the time to do it myself? Thanks Scott

I mean, I know you're all PCA members and all, and love your Porsches and stuff, I get that ... but isn't this kind of like turning a Subaru Brat into a Monster Truck? Possibly not the best starting platform you could choose.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Good lord. In that time I could buy a CL miata and swap the clutch in it. And my rollbar and my xidas and my brakes. Pretty much my everything.

That article is so scary. I cringe looking at anything Porsche, looks so complicated.

Makes you wanna chump a stock miata, civic, or camaro.

Or, I still need to get a giant garage with a lift, a bunch of money, and one of these:

Slam it on racing slicks, and gut ~3000lbs out of it. Huge transmission, huge brakes, huge engine. What could go wrong.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

So turns out our chumpcar team is down to 3 drivers for the race at PIR this weekend.

If the car can stay together for a while we'll have some serious track time for the 3 days. Saturday is the longest at 13 hours, checkered flag at 10pm. Hmmmm dark and wet.... Much like Martin's mom.

Turns out the Corksport exhaust was from Nial, I thought he looked familiar when I met him at the track day. Team Dynamics are currently on the chopping block. Bought them without enough research and am thinking about getting rid of them to fund some other stuff. Have a buddy whose dad is building a spec miata in California and he might take them off my hands.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

It fit with my old glass window soft top, the rear window slid underneath the harness bar. Maybe it was an aftermarket or something, I replaced it with an 04 cloth top.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Hmm, tempting but not really the bar I'm looking for. Plus, after searching CL, you have the harness bar welded in to the rear supports, which is not compatible with my glass window soft top, the reason I can't use the M1 I have.
