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.

Twenty-six years after it was introduced at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show, the much anticipated fourth generation Mazda MX-5 Miata will meet the press at the 2015 Chicago show. A piece in Autocar refines some of the details on the larger, lighter Miata that a Mazda insider has said will be "our best-looking car ever."

The company has relented on the quest for the metric tonne, the 1000-kilogram (2,200-pound) target too difficult to achieve in light of cost constraints. You can still expect it to lose a generous dollop of weight - Autocar says a curb weight of 1,100 kg (2,420 pounds) will still make it the lightest in its class. And Mazda will be stressing a fun driving experience through light weight and a modest amount of naturally-aspirated horsepower. Engine capacities of 1.5 and 2.0 liters are expected. Sounds familiar (and good), right?
The Miata's interpretation of Kodo design will be veer from that found on the Mazda3 and Mazda6, with "very clean and simple" lines marking out "more muscular proportions" and elongated bodywork on a longer wheelbase. A stretched engine bay will make room for the current Skyactiv engine and perhaps the future Skyactiv 2 powerplants, initial reports suggesting there could be a 30-percent increase in fuel economy from the moment it arrives.
Ford may be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Mustang this week, but it's not the only automaker with a sports car icon to fete at this year's New York Auto Show. Mazda is also celebrating the 25th anniversary of the MX-5 Miata with an array of 15 classic models. It's also showing off the chassis for the next MX-5, and unveiling a special 25th Anniversary Edition.

The special edition is based on the retractable hardtop model with either manual or automatic transmission, Bilstein shocks, a metallic red paint job with contrasting black roof and an off-white leather interior. Naturally, special badging can be found inside and out to set it apart from the record 940,000 other MX-5s sold to date, and just 100 examples will find their way to US buyers.
Along with the two-tone special, Mazda is also showing off the new Skyactiv chassis and engine that'll underpin and power the upcoming next-generation MX-5 (as well as an as-yet-to-be-determined Fiat Group roadster if the two parties can work out their differences). With a lower center of gravity that's also closer to the middle of the car, the new chassis promises even better balance and a good couple hundred pounds of weight savings over the outgoing model. Check it all out in the press releases below.
The 2015 Mazda2 is quite high up on our must-drive list. Yes, the teeny, tiny successor to the 100-horsepower five-door is worth getting excited over, largely because the previous generation was one of the absolute best smiles-per-dollar values on the market.
While we eagerly await for our opportunity to take to the 2's helm, our expectations of the new car have just been heightened thanks to its win in Japan's Car of the Year competition. Called "Demio" in the land of the rising sun, Japanese journalists handed out Mazda's second COTY award since the CX-5 took the title in 2012.
In more surprising news, the new Jeep Cherokee has made the list of 10 Best Cars in Japan. The Jeep's triumph marks the first time an American car has cracked the top ten, finishing eighth. It's not, however, the first Fiat Chrysler vehicle to snag the title, following in the footsteps of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta and Fiat Panda. Still, the fact that an American brand can make such impressive inroads into the traditionally tough-to-crack Japanese market is a seriously big deal.
