Nice wheels! Where did you find them? What size tires are you running?

Those are XXR 513's. http://www.xxrwheel.net/xxr_513.shtml They are 15x8 but only available in a 4x100 or 4x114.3 bolt circle. :-( I have Miata knuckles and hubs up front, I had the rear axles redrilled for 4x100 so I wouldn't have to hunt 4x4.00 bolt circle stuff. The tires are 245/45-15 Hoosier R6's.

Well, took the red beast back to the Dragon hillclimb. With boost, some sticky new tires etc I was after the Two Minute Club. Saturday morning started out wet, but the car felt really good. I was tippy toeing up the hill, there's some places that are slick even in the dry. Conditions had improved but I was still taking it pretty easy. Then this happened:

I came out of the corner nice, straightened up and got in the gas, felt the rear of the car step to the left a little, enough to point me at the emergency vehicles. I eased up a tiny bit to bring the rear straight and the car snapped around to the right.

He's pretty bent up. Right now the car's still on the trailer, tomorrow AM I'm going to get it into the garage and take stock of the damage. I hope it's fixable and I might be putting out a call for some parts.
