Having done some SCCA licensing and permenant number stuff this week, Facebook is suggesting racecar related stuff for me now. One suggestion is a Spec Miata discussion group. While I don’t play with them, my mechanical mentor owned a Miata shop and Spec Miata rental operation so I know the cars and class reasonably well.

Out of curiosity, I clicked on the group just to see what they discuss. The first post I see is this shit:

This is blatantly illegal in the class and easily checked for in impound. Plenty of folks were quick to mention this, too, but I got a kick out the guys expressing interest in it presumably using their real names in a forum of competitors. I guess they know who doesn’t know the rules and/or who’s car is going to get taken apart at the next race.

I’ll stick to oppo for my internet automotive fix.
