That's a no go on the engine swap to stay in CS.
Why's that? Is the no go on any engine swap, or just swapping outside of technical car generation? NC1 and NC3 are both CS; it's still the same [NC] generation, CS class engine to CS class car.

Re: Miata NC3 Engine Swaped NC1 legal in CS?

My engine is dying around 72k miles (it's knocking anyway), and a bunch of people on the NC FB Group are corroborating that by 100k miles.

Miata NC3 Engine Swaped NC1 legal in CS?

I just learned that the Miata NC1 has a flaw with it's oil feed system. Running an NC1 engine in autocross is a guaranteed early death sentence. Supposedly NC2 and NC3 the flaw was solved. Seeing as I'm stuck with an NC1 for now, when the engine eventually goes, is it legal for me to swap in an NC3 ...

Any feedback on my run this last week?

I already have some feedback where I need to work on scanning farther ahead so I setup myself better. When I walked the course I think I had a decent idea of some good lines to take. But in practice I wasn't able to setup myself perfectly for every corner depending on how I came out of the previous ...

Porsche's weird accelerating sound

During this week's autocross it sounded like the majority of Porsche's under intense acceleration were shredding gravel. I've never heard a sound like that before. Did anyone else notice this? I looked up videos to see if I could hear this sound from other Porsche's, but no luck. Anyone have any ide...

Re: Suction Camera Mount

If you car is metal and not aluminum or plastic, this works great. Way stronger than a suction cup. Thank you for the idea!! I bought a cheaper RAM mount magnet, I wasn't sure if it would hold, but it worked perfectly! Thanks. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HFDNPIE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_TUZFDbNASRXA4

Suction Camera Mount

SCCA rule: "If using a suction-cup type of mount, you must have a secondary tether securing the camera in case the mount becomes loose." Does anyone in this club use a single suction camera mount, or is this ruling strictly enforced? If not strictly enforced, is it okaay to use single suction cup on...

Underbody aero panel illegal in stock class? I assume that's a yes...

I wanted to buy this aero panel for my 2007 Miata: link. It's not like it's a wing or other big aero modification. Is it considered illegal in stock class? I'm running in CS.
