I had a lot to do to my LS miata drift car before comp season, and I did none of it. So we scramble last minute to get everything done before heading off to compete in a $20K payout event.

Had subtitles on by accident. When you started the miata in the garage it said (music) haha!

I wonder if you have a bad map sensor or ground. Ground could be causing a issue with the holley thus leaning it out.

Pro tip : DO NOT use electric impact guns/ bit drivers/ drills when taking apart fuel tanks pls lol. Look inside the little slots of your gun when you pull the trigger next time. You will understand and your future non burnt self will thank you.

Yeah a good coat to rustoleum on the bash bar is best since it's an easy repair if it gets scratched up.

Hey Taylor, if you have not tried Aeromotive fuel system components you should give them consideration. I have them on my nova from pump to filter and regulator, rock solid fuel pressure!🤘🏻🤘🏻 Love the videos!👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

Do you think that extended bleeder setup would work on a cd002 g35? Just picked this car up as my very first drift learner and experienced the "joy" of bleeding the clutch after replacing it..............I do NOT want to deal with that again lol. Just ordered a universal cap for my motive bleeder but I really like the simplicity of that line dunked in the res.

I've always filled the trans from the shifter hole inside the car, then put the shifter on. Idk of that's possible for you or not but it helps a ton!

You should build some walls instead of dumping all your money in that rice burner. Although, I suppose you can live in a Racecar but you cant race A house.

Hey to keep the mess completely out of the equation. They made really nice dry break clutch fittings for an hoses. They let you take the line apart with no fluid coming out and you don’t need to re bleed your clutch. Hope this helps you bud

Maybe it is an idea to upgraide the trans to some aftermarket internals, like better syncro's and such...

I might suggest you and anyone else who's worried about their fuel grab a small diesel water trap filter with the glass bowl and fit it where you can see it. Not much help for E85 or other blends in regards to water but you will see it the fuel is flowing and if there's junk in it

A tip for raising Some jacks. If you open the release valve and pull the jack up into position Hold it there for a moment then close the valve you might not have to spend a year pumping it. Only works on most jacks but not all some will just suck air or not pull the fluid into the ram.

should widebody the car and throw a massive tire on it

I wasn't paying attention 100% so my bad if It was said and I missed it. Could the surge tank be running low after being pushed hard for an event? Maybe dirty main tank and as its ripped around the sock gets dirty and then it settles before next event.

The old gearbox is probably just a blocker ring or syncro , could be an easy fix but definitely worth pulling it apart so at least you’ll have a readily available good spare

Taylor, what do you do when you have to much content on one subject for an episode? Do you break it into two or do you leave a bunch of footage on the editing room floor? (I'm asking because I'm in this exact situation myself right now) 😁🤘 Keep on grinding brother!
Good luck, Taylor!!

You should of wrapped the exhaust
I know you run a Cd009 trans in the Miata but in the FC RX-7 with the T56 can be converted to sequential with a kit from a company called S1 sequential conversions and it takes any stock T56 or T6060 trans, I'm buying that kit whenever I buy a C5/C6 the trans takes abuse much better and its easier aswell
