    I am making the transition from a Neon to a Miata SSB car. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    You will want Hawk pads from the competition department. I would suggest "Blue". You will use two sets of front to 1 set of rears.

    I would suggest Hoosier tires.

    The K&N air filter is a good choice.

    Thanks for the suggetions. How much time and what do you do to set your car up before a race? What seems to be the most important stuff to watch? etc.

    I would suggest Kumho tires. You will get very good wear and they are good for quite a few heat cycles.

    The other info is on par. Congratulations on your choice, the Miata is hard to beat in SSB! Ask anyone not driving one.

    I usually change the motor oil, plugs, set camber, front/rear toe, examine the rotors, and bleed the brakes as a minimum.

    I have gone through a few wheel studs believe it or not. I now carry a full set of spare studs, front and rear rotors, spare brake pads, and plugs. I have three sets of wheels. Two with dry tires and one with what I'll call my rain tires (actually they are just a set of RE730's until I can afford a set of real "wet" tires).

    The front runners and those with more dollars at their disposal probably have a better spares setup and may go about preparing their cars a little more before each race. I hope some of them will join in with their recommendations.

    I have 8 alloys and 4 steel wheels. Do you think I can get away with the steels for the rain tires. I have and abundance of Goodyears leftover from the Neon. I am planning on using them up before I get new tires. I also have a set of Toyo's which came with the car. I bought the car from Dave Moran in Colorado which was a Bob Schader car. It is a 96 red, does anyone know the car?
