    Spent a good part of last years weekends preparing it. The interior & boot trim was removed. As was the soft top. The heater, power windows, power mirrors ect were all retained. The passenger seat must also stay under 2F regs. Also, it was always to remain road registered. Below is a complete list of what went into the car in the order it happened.

          Thanks guys.

          Bernie, I've been meaning to call you to thank you for the number. As it turns out I went to high school with John's other mechanic. Was a walk in the park. No dramas and $100.

          Padey, do you mean how many laps do each of us do in the 1hr races?

                Does the front sway bar make much difference do you know. Finally got mine all back together and handling alright. So onto the next thing to fix now

                  Bernie, we are racing at QR this Sunday.

                  Josh, it stops a fair deal of body roll, but I don't really have much experience with the stock bar. We mostly use the 3 way adjustable 24mm Whiteline one. I got it from Fulcrum, but as they suck balls I'd get it somewhere else.

                    Yeah. This must be Mx5 month. I've seen heaps of them at track days carving up bigger ($$) cars.

                    Very nice man!

                              If you need any assistance at the Oran Park 1hr, give us a yell. I'm only a few minutes down the road.
