The Surprising Power Potential Of A Miata

Never doubt the power of a well-tuned Miata!  Look at what my friend Craig did at the San Antonio Raceway Midnight Madness event, this past weekend.

Midnight Madness - Legal Street Racing

Yup, he blew off a Suzuki GSX-R superbike in the quarter mile!  And know that the core block of this engine has close to 180,000 miles on it.  It’s a very modified 1990 Mazda Miata, turbocharged & intercooled, & still street driven!

Those Mazda engineers sure over designed this engine…

Racing Ready continues to find sources if inspiration like this – “You go, Craig!”

  1. To be fair, the bike was late on the lights, had a bad 60′ and let off around the 1,000′ mark. Still, it was fun and makes for a great video!

    The stock 1996 engine has over 203k miles. Not rebuilt and the head has never been off. Knock on wood.
