The light flywheel will make it harder/less forgiving to get going from a stop. Might not be the best for someone learning stick, but a lighter steel option may be a good balance. I don't think I've specifically driven one with an aluminium flywheel personally.Honestly i was semi surprised by how it felt stock. It's no where near being quick but like you said should be a blast on a tight auto cross track. I feel like 200/200 wheel would make it about perfectly balanced and a hoot to play around with.
I will teach my kid to drive a manual shortly on it and i want a car my wife can throw around that doesn't want to kill her like the other stuff...haha
No way am i spending 5k on a turbo kit on a $300 car so over time i will try and build/piece it together.
Those are the wheels i am looking at. Weight is everything with these.
Coilover recomendations that arent crazy pricey? say sub 1k?
Thoughts on lightened flywheels? I'm going to be putting in a new clutch and i have read that perhaps they don't like aluminum flywheels?
I like BC, or Fortune for coilovers. The BCs are right at 1K shipped, Fortune 500s are over $1K.
If you do the roll bar, aftermarket seats are a pain with Miatas, go with an aluminium seat like Kirkey, or Ultrasheild. They are cheap, they fit, give the most head room, and you can add padding if needed. You can swap the seat (s) back and forth easily for street or AutoX duty anyway, If you do clip in harnesses with the roll bar, you can have the car back to stock seats and belts in a few minutes.
