    Running local hillclimb events (NC) and after the last one decided to bite the bullet and dropped the windshield on my Miata.

    I know there are entire series that run that way.

    Couple issues I now have:

    1) Recent track day (over 90 - 100 MPH) things get pretty squirrelly with helmet buffeting. I went ahead and fabricated a pretty good poly windshield that I can pop in and out, but curious how the rest of you deal with it?

    2) Curious about general aero changes/fixes? Like the helmet the car seemed to suffer increased buffeting too. 

    3) ALSO Looking for a simple, waterproof, 3 light tach to mount out far enough that it is actually visible as a heads-up. Just GREEN - YELLOW - RED lights. I know I have seen them, just can't seem to find one.

    Thanks

    I don’t run an open cockpit car, but hopefully I can help.

    You can look into adding on wicker/spoiler strips to your helmet. Some can be found at Pegasus racing.

    As for the tach, do a search for sequential led shift lights. For an example, there’s one made by cartek.

    THANKS!

    I have a polycarbonate windshield being fabricated now.

    I'll try to report back on the results.
