Default New Miata body MWB or LWB?

Hi - is the new release Miata medium or long wheel base?

Thanks and regards
Dave

It was great racing with you Phil, I'm really looking forward to the next points race.
I wish I could get there more often but the four hour drive is a little tough, see you October 18.

Finally figured out what was wrong with my mini, BAD MOTOR. So that solves that.

Speaking of RCCW some racers were running slicks. Guess we'll let you slide this time.

There's a tire restriction???

The class is called TCS MINI, but no real tire inspection. I run the super grip 60D.

Rotor was new so it couldn't be that. Put it on the motor checker and it wasn't pulling good numbers.

Pre-mounted s grips. It's not a big deal, just a club race. I'm just messing with you guys.

TCS is still doing their premounted slicks, aren't they?

I've been testing Sweep and Shimizu 55d tires recently. Really awesome, except for the loss of top end speed. The Shimizu Dunlops are extremely predictable and the Sweeps are just plain sticky.

Yeah Monk,
I think they're the 1016's or something like that.
Actually they're pretty good on the asphalt surfaces we ran on when it was
a super hot track.

Overall length is quoted at 378mm which would suggest LWB.
