Quoted for truthfulness, if the spec Miata 1.6's run these brakes then there is no need for them ......if you want brake disparity, look at nx200 vs se-r brakes.... Same base class weight ( they are asked exact car except for two things, nx has better shape and Bigger brakes.......yet they are same base class, sometimes that's the breaks... Also if Greg were to give you Ptd no *, that could have huge impact on pte, Ptd,ptc, etc, more to consider than you trying to squeeze a Miata into Ptf when it should be pte car
I hear ya. Remember, I'm not trying to squeeze in to PTF, I'd just like an "updated" '90-'93 Miata to be on-par with the '94-'97 in PTE when they are built exactly the same. I'm fine to work within the existing rules, I'm just trying to bring this out in to the light so the classing of the 1.8 vs 1.8-swap discrepancy can be confirmed as intentional. At the same time I wanted to point out that a 1.6 built to the extent of PT rules (in either PTF** or PTE, without a dyno reclass) doesn't appear like it will be competitive.
It sounds like this is a common situation, though, across models and brands.
