Im considering building my car towards doing some TT events. It's a '99 Miata, so TTE (I think) if it matters. There are still several steps ahead of me before I get there but I am curious how prepared most TT cars are and if a car that is a street car (i.e. still has most of the interior, cruise control, and AC) would be able to be semi-competitive. I know PT cars are very heavily prepped, but is TT at the same level?

My TTE car does pretty well in the south-east and I still have a full interior. Bolt-ons for 130-135rwhp @2420lbs, OTS single-adjustable Xida coilovers, 15x9s w/ Hoosier R7s, sway-bars, stock ecu, no aero. Currently converting it for PTE, so the interior is being pulled to save weight gained from the cage.

So come on in, the water is fine! :mrgreen:

There are some race cars to be sure, but there are lots of cars with full interior. I don't really know much about prepping a miata for a class, but I do not think TTE miatas have tons of modifications. Honestly, you will get more out of coming out to compete than prepping a car though. Come out, learn stuff, and enjoy.

Thanks everyone. I plan to do some HPDE events this year and most likely get my TT license. I need to put some work into the nut behind the wheel but I just wanted to know if I'd be at least in the game without a full race car if I go that way.

That sounds light. I believe the cars are weighed with driver? I thought the car would be over 2500 lbs without removing a ton of stuff. Did you add a lot of lightness or is that just where it ended up?
