1994 Mazda Spec Miata Race Car on 2040-cars
Ridgefield, Washington, United States
|1994 Spec MiataCar was built in 2002 or 2003, has probably less than 10 events on it. Car was rolled at Pacific Raceway in 2003, sat until last year when I purchased it. I did the body repairs myself to the front end, car aligns out just fine after replacement of lower control arm on drivers side. Fenders are rough junkyard items, as is hood. Rest of body is a bit rough as well, but hey, its a *cheap* race car. I have since run it in two Lemons or Chump Car style races (16 hours), 3 track days, 2 ICSCC races (both ORP) and an ICSCC Mini-Enduro. Car is super fun! Finished 3rd in both ICSCC sprint races, and 1st in class in the ICSCC Mini-Enduro... Also won overall in one of the Chump style races, and 2nd in the other. To be class legal to run in Chump or Lemons, you would likely need to return the suspension to stock.
Bill of sale only, no title. Car has been a race car for over 10 years.
Mazdaspeed crate motor (1.8l) from what I know, only has about 12 weekends on it.
Clutch is likely not stock, but I've never had transmission out to see what it is. Does come with a new 4 puck and a new organic ACT clutch disc.
Torsen LSD, haven't checked ratio
Full Spec suspension package - does not have the fat cat/99+ top hats, so ride height is a little higher than most of the competitors... this is an easy fix though.
Sparco Pro2000 drivers seat, Sparco dished wheel w/ quick disconnect
Have passenger "planted" seat bracket and side mounts as well if you want to instruct w/ the car or carry passenger
all aluminum thick radiator (not springfield dyno, don't know what brand this one is).
Freshened up a bunch of things just for good measure - timing belt, cam seals
Current G-Force harness, comes with right side net as well, not installed
Car weighs in right at class minimum of 2350 with nearly empty tank, and my 200lbs in the drivers seat
Car isn't pretty, but its a pretty good and remarkably reliable racecar.
8 Team Dynamics Pro Race 1 15x7 wheels, one with a useable set of SM6's, other set has a used up set of SM7's
4 stock 14" daisy's w/ all season nothing to write home about tires for rolling the car around, or street transit.
I am selling as with my first child due in January, I don't anticipate being able to race next year.

Mazda is recalling 19,000 Mazda6 sedans from model year 2014, over concerns that the fuel tanks can be filled up too much. What is it with Mazda and fuel tanks?
Mon, 10 Nov 2014 10:00:00 EST
The big concern is, obviously, spillage when filling up. There's also a risk that a radical temperature swing could cause the fuel volume to expand, causing a full tank to spill over without the driver knowing about it. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration bulletin, if the fuel spills over, it could end up in something called the charcoal canister, which helps with the car's emissions. If it fills up the canister, it could leak out onto the road. None of this is really desirable.
The affected vehicles were all built between October 25, 2012 and May 9, 2013. It's unclear if there have been any fires due to this problem. Dealers should have been notified by now, while owners should begin receiving official recall notifications very soon.
It's only been a couple of years since Mazda introduced its CX-5 crossover, so it's hardly in need of replacement just yet. But to keep it fresh, the Japanese automaker is apparently preparing to roll out a facelift for the compact crossover.

The facelifted model is expected to debut at the LA Auto Show later this month, but before it does, a handful of images - apparently scanned from a brochure - have leaked out online. From what we can see, it looks like the revised CX-5 features a new grille with horizontal bars, LED headlamps derived from those on the new Mazda2, new fog light surrounds, new taillight graphics and, of course, new wheels.
Unfortunately we can't see what's going on inside, but it'd be safe to bet that, along with the revised exterior detailing, Mazda's probably taken the opportunity to update the interior as well.
The Mazda CX-3 is just days away from its unveiling at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, but elsewhere in the world, the Japanese brand still has the compact crossover disguised for testing. These spy shots aren't too camouflaged though, and when combined with the previous teaser image, they give a pretty clear idea what the new model will look like.
The grille here is well covered, but the photo from the front reveals the similarities to the design sketch. The rear shows a similar horizontally oriented design as the Mazda2, which the CUV is based on. However, the dipping sides around the B-pillar from the teaser don't appear to be on this tester. Even with all the swirls, the vehicle looks fairly attractive.
Mazda is doing a fantastic job of keeping mechanical details about the CX-3 a secret. It's not yet known whether the model is front-wheel-drive only or if all-wheel drive is also an option. The crossover also likely shares the Mazda2's engine, which isn't revealed for North America, yet. The diminutive CUV will compete with a huge crop of new classmates, including the Fiat 500X, Jeep Renegade, Chevrolet Trax and Honda HR-V. Check out the gallery for the latest glimpses of this Japanese CUV just days ahead of its full debut.
