Looks great! Just sent this to a co-worker who was wondering what all went into building a cobra. Hope you get to start driving it soon!

I was up there this weekend watching the NASA Mid Atlantic racing. The track was up and running but there's room for improvement. All the run off was dusty dirt and there were lots of area's where that dirt had not been graded up to flush with the track giving a few areas a 4-5'' drop off. The runoff and barriers also could use some adjustment in some areas. If you can stand the heat you can see a good 3/4 of the track from the roof of the NASCAR building. If you prefer cooler, the view from the 2nd floor bar/3rd floor windows isn't too bad.

Picked up 1/2 of our runs yesterday. In my haste of swapping the gopro around, I didn't get the suction cup secure, lucky it fell off back in the paddock rather than out on course. Cracked the case but camera is still good after getting run over. Richard's best run My 2nd best run w/ camera carnage

Looks great, glad to see it back on the road!

Heard you may have some luck using a heat gun to pop those front dents out.

Great time today, weather was great, course was interesting, lots of miatas around. Here's my last and fastest run. Left some time on the course but still always fun.

Great job to all who put this together and thanks for the quick results again!

I've got the same car and planning the same thing. So far I've taken it out at VIR once in a "Hyperdrive" (abreviated HPDE 1 event - instructors in car - 30 min - no passing). They had no problem with a 100% stock miata + a hard dog hard core double diagonal roll bar.

I've attached the HPDE tech form that NASA uses. A buddy and I teched ourselves for the day. When we got to the track, our instructors went over everything again with both of us in the paddock before we went to the classroom session. It was slightly more intensive then the tech that goes on an autocross but not by much. I had my own but there were loaner helmets around. Long sleeves/pants/close toed shoes required.

Moving forward I plan on upgrading to stainless steel brake lines, some better pads, new shocks, and work my way up from there.

Just noticed that there's both a Matt Zacherle and Matthew Zacherle listed, that's the same guy (or secret evil twin).

Sounds good Justin, might shoot you a message tomorrow after talking to the insurance folks. Faded would go great with the rest of the car.
14  General / Classifieds / WTB - NA Miata drivers side fender and/or door - red on: May 18, 2015, 12:12:17 PM
So got side swiped by a jeep Friday that decided to turn right from the left hand lane across my miata. Didn't see that I was already there. Know there are a few folks here who may horde some cars who might have a red fender and maybe door (gotta see if that'll bump back into shape). Still tracks straight so don't think it hurt anything beyond what's visible. Go for an estimate Wens but might swap it myself if I can find the parts local. Thanks
15  General / Open Forum / Re: Finally made it to VIR, and had a very close call. But I caught it on tape! on: May 04, 2015, 07:52:22 PM
Nice job dodging that one, looks like the pro photographer got a few shots of the action to from the paddoc

I was there and did a hyperdrive session, no pics of if though.
16  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Dominion Raceway on: January 28, 2015, 06:31:49 AM
Just put a roll bar in my miata this weekend so I'd love to join.

Great shots David, thanks for posting the shots of my spin on the back stretch!
18  Pictures and Media / Pictures and Media from Events / Re: AutoX #1 Video on: April 16, 2014, 06:13:06 AM
here's one, can't remember which run but they were all +/- a sec or so

Thought this was the last run of the day so just went out to show off, ended up plowing everywhere
best run of the day and experimented with the camera upfront.

Yeah, Grassroots Motorsports checked this out a couple years back, and I think maybe once more. Looks like the -2 sec for R-comps still checks out
21  General / Open Forum / another woot deal - swann freestyle action cam on: April 25, 2013, 06:27:04 AM
Saw this today and thought you guys might be interested. Debating grabbing it right now myself, anyone have one?
22  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Where to buy a helmet? on: October 08, 2012, 03:14:01 PM
Bringing this up as I have been using loaner helmets myself for the past few events. I was just gifted a helmet buddy had around rated at "FMVSS 218 DOT". Is this ok to run with? Thanks!
23  General / Open Forum / Re: Hey there (FNG content) on: August 16, 2012, 04:39:12 AM
Yes, there are novice classes. Cheat sheet I found places you in G-stock if you haven't done anything to it (
