It makes sense at an economic standpoint. I cant imagine the cost to maintain and have backup v10 engines/parts.

If you think that their stuff is expensive, then look up pretty much any jdm miata company (Nakamae is a good example), their stuff is insanely priced and thats not even with shipping included.
Realistically there's only so many parts you can make for model specific cars, so eventually stuff is going to look similar to other companies. Garagestar puts their own spin on them while ensuring that it's a quality products. I know everyone there and they are super cool guys who also have alot of talent on the track. Sucks i was never able to visit their new shop. Great read.

Yep i love the meaty tire look. Plus added bonus is R Comp tires are cheaper in smaller sizes

Love the wagon. Also great choice on the Cobra seats. I have a Cobra Suzuka Pro GT(wide) in my miata and it is the most comfortable racing bucket I've ever sat in. Even for extended periods of time.

In the last picture of parts, there appears to be what looks like Nitron coilovers just laying on the ground. that's $7-10k suspension just laying there, wonder how much they wanted for it?

overall I like the whole car, I only have a few nitpicky things like why purple interior bits on a red and black car? also the mounting positions of the external reservoirs are a bit too show-offy.

Job well done. The only thing I feel could be improved on is if you had someone fab in a nice custom cage rather than just bolting in a Crushco one.

I definitely plan on buying one as a daily driver when it comes out. Just plan on giving it a healthy drop and some nice wheels. Not gonna track it, I already have a NA Miata dedicated for that. Things are looking good so far, I hope the engine is as good as the chassis!
Attached a pic of my track car to show some Miata love!

As a active duty person myself I definitely feel his pain. Whenever I'm deployed or stationed like I am right now here in Korea, literally the only thing I can think about is getting back home and prepping my car so I can get some seat time at my home track (Thunderhill, which I'm dying to try the new 5 mile version!). My car's not as legendary as a Hakosuka but it is what I'd consider a privateer time attack 1993 Mazda Miata which I've been developing over the past few years. like the Hakosuka it doesn't have much power, but boy does it punch way above it's weight class on a road course :)
Beautiful car. I'd love to build something similar someday, maybe a Mazda Cosmo Sport in a similar fashion sorta like this picture of a model that someone built

Yeah I was wondering the same. Pikes Peak and 24hrs Nurburgring are two events that I look forward to you guys covering every year but there was little to none this year.

I've always wanted to do a rotary swap in my NA Miata track car. Awesome to see one of the best drivers out there reppin the Miata! }Posted a few pics of mine to show support lol. Can't wait to see the finished product!

I'm just happy to see that Lotus has kept true and still uses a traditional manual gearbox rather than a flappy paddle one. They are becoming rarer and rarer which is the worst thing imo.

To add to my last comment, I always like a good slow mo dubstep drift video, but let me get some more of that rotary soundtrack!

In my 20 car dream garage, a TVR Sargaris would definitely be in there. To me it is one of the best looking/sounding cars ever.

@familycar @MikeDonnelly well I'd really like to find a Mazda Cosmo and build it similar to this picture but I doubt I'd ever find one.

About damn time! I've been waiting ever so patiently for this and did not disappoint! I may have to snag myself one of these while I'm I've there, but it is my goal to find a '89 R32 GTS-T type M because everyone knows RWD is more fun
The year isn't over yet! The 25 Hours of Thunderhill is this weekend! I'll be there!

I know Sean fairly well and he's a super nice guy, also if you wanna get your hands on some rare JDM parts for your car he will hunt them down for you all for a fair price. He's also got an insane car collection, his newest acquisition being a Hakosuka. Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to the show that day so Sean took my spot which ended up being for the best because my Miata isn't nearly as attention grabbing as his lol.

I've been following this build since it first started and is one of my favorites, Glad to see it finally got finished, it's awesome I really wish I had the skills to fabricate my own custom track car from the ground up.

Should've chosen a track where he'd been able to actually use all that horsepower, with so many turns on that track it'd probably be a good equalizer between the Pagani and say.. a Miata? lol
