Not all NAs are created equally, so we've narrowed it down a little. Please pick your car carefully as there are plenty of NA MX-5s that are not legal.

Here are the eligible cars

MX-5 J-Limited II (NA, J) '93 - 369PP - Sunburst Yellow - Black Roof - 1 Wide 1 Small Left No Bumpers
MX-5 Miata J-Limited II (NA, J) '93 - 369PP - Sunburst Yellow - Black Roof - 2 Small Left No Bumpers



MX-5 S-Special Type I (NA,J) '95 - 367PP - Montego Blue Mica - Black Roof - Wide Center Full Length
MX-5 Miata S-Special Type I (NA, J) '95 - 367PP - Classic Red - Black Roof - Wide Left No Bumpers



MX-5 SR-Limited (NA,J) '97 - 369PP - Sparkle Green Metallic - Black Roof - Checkered Flag Left No Bumpers
MX-5 Miata SR-Limited (NA, J) '97 - 369PP - Sparkle Green Metallic - Black Roof - Center Wide Full Length



MX-5 V-Special Type II (NA,J) '93 - 369PP - Neo Green - Beige Roof - 2 Wide Center No Bumpers
MX-5 Miata V-Special Type II (NA, J) '93 - 369PP - Chaste White - Beige Roof - 2 Med Center Full Length



MX-5 VR-Limited (NA,J) '95 - 369PP - Artvin Red - Beige Roof - Wide w/Thin Borders Left No Bumpers
MX-5 Miata VR Limited (NA, J) '95 - 369PP - Excellent Green Mica - Green Roof - Mouth and Rear Bumper


As you can see these guys gain stripes when you paint them, as do all standard NA MX-5s (not the Eunos Roadsters or Premium car)

Default 5/5 with 0ABS is actually not a problem.

ooh pictars.  That last VR-lim with the 'rear bumper' gets a full rear bumper color change to match the 'mouth', which is neat.  The '93 J-lim-IIs have a black windshield surround that stays put when painted.  And, all roof colours and chrome side mirrors don't change when painted so shop carefully.

In short; the legal-for-this 1.8s are all the '93-'97s that aren't a Eunos.

Are these cars affected by the bug with custom rims changing balance and feel?

They have equal-size tires all around in reality; so I doubt they'll change balance with custom wheels as the bug is front-sized wheels on all four.

I don't know if you get different overall grip with custom wheels (stock size or increased size) for any reason as I have yet to test that.

Alrighty then. Custom wheels because paint, and standard size because wheel to road acceleration force will be higher, if they modeled it; they probably didn't bother, so whatever.

Bought a Superbird for Moulon Rouge, but only the rims, because it's cold and gray outside, so my car is too.

Is that a real good Moulin Rouge or the dull blah GT5 version of Moulin Rouge?

Because the new-to-6 Plymouth AAR 'Cuda has the best Moulin Rouge of all time.

Is group44 going to be host for this?, or is someone going to log in and race as DriverSports?  Pretty sure group44 is on my list .... I'll have to check when next logged in.

Yes I should be hosting, and you are still on my list Cool  For anyone looking to join who hasn't raced with us before, please send out a friend request to 'group44' so that you can join the lobby for the race. You may also want to send a request to 'DriverSports" as it may also continue to be utilized for other events in the future.

It's actually going to be pretty hard for me to make it tonight, between when O will be going to bed and trying to have dinner between races. This might be a recurring theme with me  Neutral
