Locost with Miata driveline and muffler by Garrett went to short track in first timed event in new track, Atlanta Motorsports Park on Saturday.
I got FTD.

Sunday we should have driven the full course, but it was raining, so I decided to save the car for Chasing the Dragon Hillclimb.
The Track is great, asphalt is grippy, few bumps here and there, the berms could be more aggressive.
The sound requirements were very strickt, which is courrtesy for neighbors and this being first event there they were fairly adamant on it. I saw 88 db in my listings, but I have the effective "rotary muffler"

See you at Dragon!

HRK, great news! Good way to start.

Have any pictures of your car you can share with us, or is it all made from stuff like smoke and mirrors? :)

What size tires are you using?
