I'm not sure yet exactly how to accomplish this suggestion, but I had a very frustrating weekend that could have been calmed by a simple(?) call-out from one of the course work stations.

I ended up getting 4 DNF's, every one ended up being on the same corner. But I didn't figure that out until my very last run. I asked the 3 Observers after my 2nd DNF and then after my 3rd DNF WHERE the call was being made. I got 3 different answers each time. Extremely frustrated after the 3rd DNF and still no answer as to where the call was being made from, another driver came over to me and showed me on the course map where he thought the call might have been coming from. So, on my last run, I watched very closely and I finally found out that is was the gate coming into the corner near work station #2. I still missed it and DNF'd but I finally found out.

That all being said, if there was some way for a driver to be able to come find out, at the very least, what work-station called out the DNF, before failing on the next run or the next or the next, it would eliminate some serious frustration. It's one thing if it's an obvious complete course deviation which can be seen only from outer-space, but missing a single cone makes if far more difficult to pin-point as the driver.
As a regular Observer for my work assignment, I know that I am not the only one that has ever been frustrated by not being able to even get a general idea where a DNF was called. And AS an Observer, I know it's difficult to relay that information when all we get is a call-out of, "DNF on the black Miata."

Maybe we could try something as simple as, the course worker at the station that called the DNF, calls out something like, "DNF on the red Miata at station #2."? And maybe even to go as far as being able to mark that down somewhere so the driver can come look without having to bother the Observers or scoreboard keeper.

I'm open to any other suggestions.

Not looking for anything fancy for the starter, used stock is fine as long as it works. I'm open to suggestions for the rear diff though (keeping the tight budget in mind).

This car was apparently a "drift missile" so the previous owner had installed a welded rear diff. Not so good for AutoX. But also, the previous owner did enough "modifications" that I will not be able to bring it back to life as an STS car, so it looks like I'm gonna be stuck in CSP. So, that being said, I have no idea if CSP uses something other than a stock rear diff or not. Thus, I am open to suggestions there.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hoping someone can help me out here (Dave Lahey, if you're on here).

I bought a set of used GC Perches and Eibach springs. Went to install last night, and I'm a bit lost (yes, I feel pretty stupid).

First question: The Eibach springs are smaller in diameter than the stock springs. The stock spring diameter matched the shock mounts we just bought but the Eibachs don't fill the shock mound seat (see photo). Seems this will be an issue. Do I need different shock mounts?

Question 2: There is a rubber "cap" piece (see photo) I keep putting on that was originally from when we first bought the car. It doesn't appear to do much more than act as a bit of a spacer but it doesn't fit in the Eibach spring due to the diameter. Is this piece necessary?

Question 3: The Eibach spring for the rear is about 3" shorter than the stock spring. Is this how it should be? It seems if I put the GC perch and spring on the way it was given to me, the rear of the car will sit 3" lower than the front. If I flip the perch seat on the sleeve, I can make up the difference in height, but I don't know if this is the right thing to do. I cannot find any installation manuals online or any instructional videos on YouTube. I just don't want to screw things up.

Any help you guys can give would be greatly appreciated!!
