Been debating on bringing my little Miata to the track, but not sure if I'll be able to run depending on the safety ruleset with it being a convertible. So figured I'd post here to find out if it'll be worth the trip out. Currently I do not have a roll bar installed on the car. What's the limits I can run without getting kicked off (ie. lowest ET / highest MPH)?

Unless the rule has changed..... convertibles need a roll bar when they are faster than 13.50 E.T.

Guess I'm sol until I get a rollbar then. Thanks for the info, it's greatly appreciated.

I assume your Miata has some mods then? They aren't that fast from the factory, are they?

Yeah mine has been slighty modded. Stock the car was only pushing 100hp, in it's current street tune it's just a "tad" higher we'll say.

This is the response I received from Pete via e-mail:

"13.99 or quicker requires a roll bar in convertibles, a safety harness and helmet also."

So wanted to say thanks to everyone for the info. Unfortunately no way I'm going to install a harness in my street car, so won't be heading to the track.

Thanks again!
