331 V8 Miata first autocross
Here's my first autocross after getting the V8 conversion complete. The on-board video recording had some problems, but I pieced together what I could. It was a good day. Only real mechanical issue had to do with the power steering fluid overheating. More video on vimeo[dot]com

Here's my conversion. Eagle stroker internals, 11.5:1 compression, custom ground comp cam from comp cams, Dart Pro1 Heads, complete MSD ignition system, walbro 255 fuel pump with bypass fuel system, Quick fuel 750 carb with mechanical secondaries, Edlebrock Air Gap intake, March under drive pulleys and brackets, custom World Class T5, custom 7.5 rear diff, custom valved Bilstein HD's from fat cat motorsports with ground control coil overs, and gauges galore. There is a ton more that i have done to the car but thats the nitty gritty.
V8 Miata racing at Infineon
This is my V8 powered miata racing at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, CA. This is a NorCal NASA event. There were only 2 cars in Super Unlimited, so they started us right behind the CMC, AIX and AIX extreme classes. I also catch some of the Honda Challenge cars that did a standing start before our rolling start.
V8 Miata on Targa Newfoundland - Garnish stage
Ride along with the Targa Miata crew on one of the classic Targa Newfoundland stages in 2011. Garnish has a bit of everything - high speed through the woods, tight little town streets, smooth pavement, rough pavement - it's a real workout for the car and the crew. You can hear the 100 mph wheelspin right near the beginning of the stage. The team was leading the Open Division of the race at this point.
The car is powered by a modified L33 V8 engine, making between 350 and 400 hp and a 6-speed transmission. The conversion was done using parts from V8Roadsters, as are all the V8 conversions from Flyin' Miata. Suspension is the FM AFCO setup, working hard in this stage. It was built and driven by Keith Tanner and navigated by Janel Tanner.

Autocrossing a V8 Miata - Brandon
Brandon and Keith took Elvis out to a local autocross for some fun. Elvis, for those who don't know him, is Flyin' Miata's LS1-powered Miata. He's also fitted with FM AFCO suspension and a number of other upgrades. You can find out more at flyinmiata.com.
This is Brandon's fastest run of the day in Elvis. He's a little boring to watch because he's smooth - sorry about that. He and Keith were within 0.3 seconds of each other.
And 4 seconds ahead of everyone else at the autocross.
