We go to a hometown drift comp at a Kart track to drive with all our friends and compete for some money! The LS3 miata had other ideas and broke at the worst time, we do what we can to keep going.

Too sry I'm late for the comment I reccomend getting a less grippy tires cuz I can see you struggling to hold a corner better having a bit less grip.if you have less grip your miata would be smoother

Everyone go to faulken tire and blow them up on all media's to sponsor him it helps trust me if they know he has people behind him that will buy from them from seeing him run faulken tires

I wonder if the bucking issue is not a drive by wire issue, but a drive train issue. Not a bad idea to check the differential and trans gears.

God if taylor ever try’s for pro 2, I think he’s gonna dominate. He’s a guy that approaches these comps from a winning perspective and that’s exactly what would make him successful in any high level of competition it’d be a wake up call for the pro level.

Always carry a spare alternator with an LS! Also swap the pulley for the correct size to slow it down. Goal is try to and keep it around 17k with stock pulleys they are seeing upwards of 22-24k @ 7-7500rpm engine speed.

Tip is to put a fresh jump pack on the battery when swapping the alternator or even borrowing someone else's battery and putting it in when you put the alternator in

Supercharge that LS. Get in contact with ProCharger, I'm sure they will sponsor you in some way and you will get the extra hp you need to keep up with the fastest cars of the line.

if you have problems with the alternater going out frequently, try to put a bigger pully on it if the system can handle it, than the alternator runs less rpm and presumably brake a lot less

It would have for sure been you and been in the final had the alternator not crapped out. But ohhh well that's how things go sometimes. Let's hope you'll have another chance at it or something similar!

LESGOOO Ben! Happy for him. Just a thought Taylor, what about compiling some sort of folder of the main 'consumable' components that you don't normally carry. Maybe take a photo, list the part number, yada yada, so if you're in a similar situation again someone in your team can look at the folder and know exactly which part you need. Regardless, keep doing you my guy. Loving the content

Why does your car make that much smoke from the tires than the others? Is it the kind of tire, the car set up or the driving style?
Paulo G

@Taylor Ray Tks for the answer. Drifting is not that popular here in Brazil. My fun with cars is off-reading. But since I like to work in my cars as well (specially considering that my off road truck is a Land Rover, probably the most unreliable car) I started viewing you channel. I learned a lot of thinks. Tks. As we sat in Brazil, living and learning.

Driving style and hearing. More wheel speed. More smoke. I run 3rd gear which at limiter is like 90mph while going maybe 30. The bigger the gap from car speed to wheel speed. And the more angle you’re at. The more smoke.
