Default Nliiitend1's ND

@Nliiitend1; .. I spy on you lol

After you had some fun driving please enlighten us with some impressions, observations, suspension guru'ness , etc... I'm interested in getting an ND (probably wait for the 2nd year) and I'm sure your typical objective finds/knowledge will benefit those who are interested in the ND.

BTW, don't forget to post some pics.

Been checking out Miata.net?

I'm waiting on a new phone (old one hit the pavement at about 60 mph after falling off my RAM mount on the SV Sunday) and haven't bothered to dig out one of my "real" cameras yet, but I'll start a thread and get some pics posted eventually.

Walking is not something Miata owners do often. That's more a ZZB Speed thing.

Nope. It's not going anywhere anytime soon.

I have no plans for a winter wheel/tire setup for the MX-5.

Not that I am questioning your decision because I have a similar situation but it cracks me up when someone's weekend car is slower than their daily.

Yeah I know what you mean, but my MS3 isn't exactly a poster child for all-out speed (in the world of Speeds, anyway)...

The ND may be a bit slower, but it's no slouch for only having 155 hp, it easily out-handles my (some might say "significantly set up") MS3 bone stock, and is engaging in ways quite different than the MS3 is.

It is a really, really good car.

It is a really, really good car.
I read somewhere that it's actually faster than the new v6 camaro in 0-60. Lol.

Also doth it have a differential of the limited slip variety?

I'd have to disagree with the week-end fast daily slow car thesis.
I think it is all based on age.

When you get old, and drive an S class AMG Mercedes to work every day, as I am sure some here like Dano and Predapio do because they are recalcitrant and like to OD on Viagra, then you have a small convertible to drive on the week ends when you are feeling ghey.

When you are young, you drive a piece of shit all week and have all your money tied into a Unicorn that sits in your garage. This individual dreams of being a pussy magnet and ripping records at the drag strip, but as is often the case, ends up masturbating and bankrupt instead.

TLDR Nintendo is old and ready to join Dano and Predapio in their prey for minors in playgrounds so watch your children.

Been going over that in my head for my dream ND configuration.

Figure there will be much better ways to spend $3400 in aftermarket soon...

And I've always wanted a set of 6UL wheels on a miata.

The car that puts down the faster lap time is the faster car. Straight line speed is a very small portion of the equation, and means very little outside the roll races, and weak ass 1/4 ET's you all put out here.

949 already has a ND 6UL being produced, and is expected in the coming months.

Stock for stock inwould be surprised if there was a track in the world a miata was faster around than a ms3. But that's not really the point of a miata is it? If we just wanted to be fast we would all be driving z06 s.

I don't know how true that statement is and I'm not about start looking at track times to find out... but take a miata and an ms3 on a canon road and see who wins.

And the z06 is obviously fast in a straight and on the track

@Nliiitend1;
I read somewhere that the seat will not just move back and forth with the lever thingy but also lift up as you move the seat forward for the shorter people. I tried this and i didnt notice the height change. So is this not true or was i suppose to do something different?

I'm pretty sure you'd be surprised then. Look up track times, or just go to a hpde day. Chances are a Miata will be there and blow by you. From personal experience I can tell you a stock Miata is faster around at least one track than a mildly modified ms3. Miatas may be slow in a straight line, but they're referred to as momentum cars because once they get up to speed, they're quite fast around most tracks. I think that's exactly the point of a Miata. I'm pretty sure they are the most commonly tracked/raced car in the world for a reason.

By the way, I've passed more than a couple z06s on track... possibly due to driver mod... possibly tires... maybe just too much power on a light rear end to carry high corner speed... Either way, food for thought.

I don't want to start a pissing match but I said stock for stock so here you go.

Lightning Lap 2014: Complete LL Times 2006 to 2014 ? Feature ? Car and Driver

3:16.0 mazdaspeed 3 (2007)

3:29.3 Mazda MX-5 Miata (2006)

Do i expect the new Miata to be faster than the old yes, but not that much faster.

In the hands of the same driver, or even similarly skilled drivers, the ms3 will be faster around just about everything.
Not gonna lie, the Miata is likely more fun, and the older ones at least, a shit tonne more reliable.

Do i expect the new Miata to be faster than the old yes, but not that much faster.
That's pretty cool that they compared so many cars. I don't think VIR is setup to benefit momentum cars as much as higher horsepower, less capable handling cars. Are there other similar comparisons at different tracks?

I was talking to a guy with a stock miata one day at roebling road. At the time, my only handling mod was a rsb. We ended up starting a couple sessions in front of one another. I'd fly by (or catch up to) him on the straights and then he'd pass me (or pull away) in the back corners. We were both on street tires, but mine were less capable pilot a/s 3s.

I'm not a huge miata fan, but I've seen what they can do on a track that suits their strengths.

3:18.6 SUBARU BRZ, and the ND MX5 is considerably quicker in every way over the BRZ. Do not be fooled by release year, base model NC MX5 times.

Despite driving very differently, very similar lap times. After watching these videos, I believe we can all agree which is the better, the faster, and has the most potential for a weekend car I am sure.

I don't think anyone was disputing which car was more fun or ultimately more capable on a track.

while technically both true, I suspect there was at least the potential for an ulterior motive beyond fact stating, as evidenced by the qualifying statement at the beginning.

just calling um like I see um, right or wrong

That was actually directed at the three people who reponded to my original statement without reading the stock for stock part.





And I'm done shitting up this thread so on to the pictures of this new fucking car.

The rails themselves are inclined toward the front of the car, that's all.

Took the car on its second road trip (went to NOLA last fall) recently:



...pic was taken along the Pike's Peak Toll Rd on the way back down at the overlook between the summit and Devil's Playground.
