Hey guys, I'm Warren. I've got a bit of a project ahead of me. For various reasons, I have to go from a bare Exocet frame to a driveable Ultimate Track Car in, meh, about 3 days. Yeah, I know, it's crazy, but it's possible.
I need help packing in all the go-fast, and I was wondering if any of your guys would want to pitch in. Here's some of the stuff on the list:
- Timing Belt / Water Pump / etc
- Power steering delete
- Full Energy Suspension Bushing Kit
(All our suspension bits are back from powdercoating, old bushings are already removed)
- FM's super-secret-squirrel unreleased lightweight brake system (4 lbs less per corner)
- FM coolant reroute
- FM radiator and airflow package
- FM II Turbo kit
- FM Happy Meal clutch kit w/ lightest flywheel
- 2 Car of Tomorrow wings
- AFCO Suspension
- Replacing front and rear hubs / wheel bearings
- ARP studs all around
- Rebuild shifter
- Fit FM's intercooler and piping
- Papal blessing of speed
We've got a stripped Miata PPF, so it's wrenching on Easy mode. We'll be doing all the major stuff before installing the chassis. We have ****ty tools but a nice digital torque wrench. Priorities.
If any of you saw Flyin' Miata's recent Facebook post, well, it was for this car. Serious car is serious.
Yeah, that's a handbrake-compatible ultralight wilwood 4-pot. Deal wit it.

As you can see, it's a tight schedule. I'm not asking for slave labor, I just figure some of you would love to play around with some of these cool parts. I'll take what I can get. Obviously anyone that helps WILL get a pants-****ting ride in this thing when done. We have some tracktime at AMP, I'd love to work something out (no promises).
