When I started running my Corvair with the Phoenix group a while back, having fun, getting to know people, and learning about the different classes, it wasn't long before my wife and I decided to pick up a nice '99 Miata to set up for STR class. I got lots of encouragement from members who where generous with help to point us in the right direction. It's been great but....no one told me that these little cars would do this.

I was exiting the 202 close to home when, it was a flash in the left headlight then THUMP! I didn't feel anything go under the car and I saw nothing in the mirrors. The car seemed to be running OK so, I drove slow home and pulled in the driveway watching the temp closely. Got out and walked around to the front of the car and this is what I saw.

I went in to get my wife up (sleeping as it was around 10:30) and tried to explain to a half awake lady that I needed her help to get a coyote out of the front of the car. The look on her face was priceless. We went back out to the garage to look at it. I didn't quite know what to think or how to approach getting it out. Then things changed. Debbie noticed it was still breathing and was looking at us. Tried to pull it out by the hind leg with a strap....no luck. Tried to call the Sheriff to request help from animal control....no luck. They said they would send a Deputy. While we were waiting on help, it passed away. Called the Sheriff back to waive off the help. We eventually got it out and did what we had to do. Quite the evening.

Tough little car. It came out OK with only the forward lower shroud blown out. New one get's here Saturday as well as the new 6ul's and Racing Beat front bar. The shocks will be here end of the month.

Looking at a 2006 Club Spec MX-5. The car is really what I've been looking for but it doesn't have an LSD. Can anyone help with what's involved with installing one, both $ and effort. Is there a shop that could be recommended to install it if needed.

Thanks
