    I may be getting an 07 Miata. I have an opportunity to try it at an event before I commit to it but it's on crappy all-season tires. Does anyone have some decent street tires that would fit on a 15x6 rim that I can rent for a weekend? Or already have some mounted on something that will fit on the car that I can rent?

    Also, it's a 97 M-edition. I heard that the springs that came on those cars are softer than the springs on the 94-R. Does anyone know just how much softer they are?

    25lbs per corner spring rate. Not positive![:^)]

    Make sure that you confer with the Chicago ES experts before buying (HB in particular). They know the ins-and-outs of the Stone Age Miatas like no body's business (honestly no one should know this much about NA's). Yahoo Groups Chicago Autocross is a good way to get their attention, or upload something odd involving something tangentially related to cars on YouTube.

    Either way they will be in town for the CenDivs.

    I'll probably talk to them a little at CenDiv. Unless I find something seriously wrong with the car I'm going to get it, even if it's an underdog to the 94R. The price is something that I can't pass on. Even if it's a horrible autocross car I may still think about just using it as a summer car to keep the miles off of the WRX.
