many complains on the R888 from miata clubs, solos..etc. Everyone likes the RA1 better. Some rumors of RA1 coming back next year 2010 from TOYO..not sure if it is a good news or just a rumour..

You should have your brake fluid flush and get a higher boiling pt fluid. FYI, once brake fluid reach the boiling pt, you need to flush them.

Mosport was great. much better than shannonville IMHO.
The only Bimmers i saw were a AW E93 335i with JB3, one LeMans Blue E90 M3, and a few other E46's.
