We've made a bunch of changes to the LS3 miata to make it faster, and more reliable. So we bring it out to a private day after the FF race to drive with the homies including Alex Bowman who's in town. It's also the first trip with the new trailer with all the cabinets, tool box, etc!

Interesting to see that with less grippy fronts you make less minor corrections while driving. Almost look more in control with less grip

Taylor just a suggestion but if you are going to run tandem with Ben why don't you mount a GoPro to his car so we can get the outside view/prospective of your car. We get the see smoke show of Ben but would be good to see yours. Anyway enjoyed the footage keep it up 👍🏻

You should install a fuel tank with a pump coming out the side of the trailer. We have one on our toy hauler and it's legit to have. Just pull up and fill up as needed. Would be a sick upgrade to the trailer

The video of Chelsea driving with spares on the front prove you don’t need grip up front.

So is the plan still to build a Pro2 level C5, or now to keep advancing the scope of the miata?

Taylor when I grow up I would love to be just like you. But as i grow I want to do it like Ben. Hey Ben. You created a business in a niche. You kill it in operation. Clearly have dedication. And you might actually whip that blue piece of art better than Taylor's. Everyone should take note of the discipline both these guys have. I'm 29 right now lol still not trying to grow up though.

Dude imagine the chassis expert at BC racing having an idea about tyre choice 😅 Also would totally watch a Bowman US-first channel, as a NASCAR fan it's cool to see a real down to earth guy ripping on his days off

The in car pointed toward you actually provides a really cool context into what the car is doing and where the tandem car is. Did your titanium exhaust work change colors after heat cycling it a few more times?

She was summoned to see Cuomo due to a problem he was very much allegedly having with his mobile phone. I say allegedly because Governor RapeWhistle often created false pretexts to get the women he wanted to harass or molest into his office alone. And according to her account, not only did he never mention this alleged problem with his mobile phone, he literally said nothing at all to her before he began groping her. He just got up and started grabbing her breasts. In a recent interview with the Times Union - her first public statements on the matter - she described what happened when she reached the office on the second floor: The governor came out from behind his desk, and began groping her in a sexually aggressive manner. "And that wasn’t just a hug," she said. "He went for it and I kind of like was, 'Oh, the door is right there.' ... I was mortified that a woman who works here is going to come in and see. ... I was terrified of that happening, because that’s not who I am and that’s not what I’m here for." As panic set in, it flashed in her mind that insulting the governor could cost her the career she had been working so hard to build. "I said to him, I said, 'You’re going to get us in trouble,'" she recalled. "I didn’t know what else to say. … It was pretty much like 'What are you doing?' That’s when he slammed the door (shut). He said, 'I don’t care.'" He walked toward her a second time. "I remember exactly what I was wearing," she said. "I remember him slamming (the door) so hard that I remember thinking to myself that I’m sure the staff is, like, 'Is everything OK up there?' He came right back and he pulled me close and all I remember is seeing his hand, his big hand. I remember looking down like, 'Holy sh_.'" The governor, she said, had reached under her blouse and his hand was grasping one of her breasts over her bra. "I was just so confused and so taken aback by it. … He never said anything, which was odd," she said. "At this moment, I don’t know what to say - I don’t know what to do. Now my hives are coming out. I’m, like, swearing in my mind. I remember I walked out and he walked back into his office. ... I remember going downstairs and escorting myself out and going to my car and sitting there for a second and going, 'OK, I have to now go back into the Capitol, go back to my desk and do my job and pretend that, like, that didn’t just happen.' "I didn’t have another choice. I remember (thinking), 'You have to pull yourself together … even if you have to sit here for a couple minutes to do that,'" she continued. "If I told someone, I’m done. And who do you tell?"

Hey Taylor, you can easily wire an input to your PMU to trigger a data log with the terminator. Also, if you don’t go that route it’s wayyyyy easier to data log with the 3.5 handheld than the laptop.

Suggestion for the trailer; add a strip of aluminum about 6" wide along the top of the cabinets, all around the countertop. It will add a little protection but will fill in the missing strip on either side of the long counter and make it more aesthetically pleasing.

I’ve wondered this for a while now, but when you go on trips with the trailer does the stuff on your shelves and in the cabinets actually stay in place? Or does it all get thrown around like crazy how I imagine it would?

Trailer looking perfect for your need. You just need a winch you can attach to the tracks. If, god forbid, the Miata would be smashed beyond self loading ability. (like heavy front end damage)

You really should book a good dyno session with your new throttle, especially for transient throttle. You're just using throttle as an on/off switch for most of the session. Probably holding you back a lot

On the tyre note, Denofa did a video running space savers and felt it wasn't much different compared to stickies. I think that's how he likes to drive with having the front skid a little more instead of full grip.

I’ve always thought I preferred front grip. I like the control. But it’s actually nice having some slip and I still felt like I had plenty of control.

So glad you finally got the trailer you want, and set up the way you like. I think there should be an awning in the future. And maybe a vent on the left side of the trailer to vent your fuel storage cabinet to outside.

Just a question... Why do you guys not wear safety gear? Is it because no one else does? Accidents are more likely to happen in grassroots events than pro events. Thisnis coming from Experience.. I've been on fire.. It doesn't tickle 😳
