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.

The recall of faulty airbag inflators supplied by Takata has exploded today to grow to seven automakers. In most cases, only models in certain high-humidity regions were affected because the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found in its investigation that moisture played a roll in determining whether there would be a problem. However, some companies opted for national campaigns. The exact number of affected models for these campaigns isn't yet known at this time.

BMW is recalling an undisclosed number of 325i, 325Xi, 330i and 330Xi models from the 2001 through 2005 model years and the 2001-2006 model year versions of the 325Ci and 330Ci for the driver side and passenger side inflators. Only vehicles currently registered in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the US Virgin Islands are covered under this recall.
Neither Chrysler's filing with NHTSA nor its press release list the specific models affected, but a company spokesperson told Autoblog that at this time it only covers the driver and passenger side inflators for the 2006 Dodge Charger in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the US Virgin Islands
One day removed from our latest round of spy photos, Mazda has finally lifted the veil on its 2016 CX-3 crossover, giving us our very first glimpse at the Mazda2-based entry into the rapidly expanding world of subcompact crossovers.

Mazda's KODO design language is once again on display, presenting some increasingly familiar styling touchstones including a five-point grille that integrates neatly with the front headlights to present an almost protruding snout that's both clean and complex. Like previous KODO designs, the CX-3's profile features swoopy character lines that highlight the wheel arches and a higher beltline. Mazda has cleverly chosen to black out the CX-3's D-pillar in favor of a floating roof look, a design decision that adds to the model's fashionable styling. It's the rear of the design that borrows most heavily from the Mazda2, largely in the shape of the headlights and rear hatch.
Globally, under that fashionable sheetmetal sits Mazda's 2.0-liter Skyactiv four-cylinder that can be mated to a six-speed manual or automatic. Unfortunately, in North America, it looks like we'll only get the automatic. Regardless of gearbox, power can be sent to an optional next-gen all-wheel-drive system that uses the active torque control system found on the Mazda CX-5. Like the Mazda2, front-drive is standard.
Mazda has made huge gains in its competitive set with the introduction of its Skyactiv technologies, and the Japanese automaker appears to have no plans on slowing down. While we're still waiting for the Mazda6 Skyactiv-D diesel to go on sale in the US, Mazda announced that it will debut new Skyactiv-Hybrid and Skyactiv-CNG versions of the Mazda3 (standard US-spec model shown above) at next month's Tokyo Motor Show.
Matching up with what we heard earlier in the summer, the Mazda3 Skyactiv-Hybrid is intended for Japan only, but there are no details about this system regarding fuel economy, electric components or specs. Likewise, there are no details for the Mazda3 Skyactiv-CNG Concept, which is a bi-fuel version of the car running on both gasoline and compressed natural gas. As this car's name suggests, the CNG model is a concept vehicle, and there is no indication that Mazda plans offering such a model here in the US.
In addition to these two vehicles, Mazda will also have an Atenza (Mazda6) on display showing off some vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) safety systems, called the ASV-5 (Advanced Safety Vehicle). Scroll down for Mazda's official press release.
