Dry's are tires we use in the dry not wet... you might want to change that. LOL

NB's are from 1999-2004 not 1989.

Your call. You only say I went out on slicks or drys when it is wet, so... Not trying to confuse

Ya there's no 89 year, I changed it to 04

But you have to beleive everything you read online

Mazda MX-5 280px-2011_Mazda_MX-5_PRHT_--_04-28-2011 Overview Manufacturer Mazda Also called Mazda MX-5 Miata
Mazda Miata
Eunos Roadster
Mazda Roadster Production 1989–present Assembly Hiroshima, Japan (Hiroshima Plant) Body and chassis Class Sports Car
Roadster Layout FR layout Platform Mazda N platform

The MX-5, released as the MX-5 Miata /miˈɑːtə/ in North America and the Roadster in Japan, is a lightweight two-seater roadster with a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. Manufactured by Mazda in Hiroshima, Japan, the model debuted in 1989 at the Chicago Auto Show. The MX-5 was conceived as a small roadster – with light weight and minimal mechanical complexity limited only by legal and safety requirements; technologically modern, but philosophically descending from small British and Italian roadsters of the 1960s such as the Triumph Spitfire, MG MGB, Fiat 124 Sport Spider, Alfa Romeo Spider, and Lotus Elan.

The second generation MX-5 (NB) was launched in 1998 and the current (NC) model has been in production since 2005. It continues to be the best-selling two-seat convertible sports car in history[1] and by February 2011 over 900,000 MX-5s had been built and sold around the world.[2]

Since the launch of the third generation, Mazda consolidated worldwide marketing using the MX-5 name with the exception of North America where it is marketed as the MX-5 Miata.[3] The name Miata derives from Old High German for reward.[4]

A comment in the spirit of Bench; not one of these is actually an acronym. All are just initials.

Actually some are part numbers (SM6), some are initials(FCC), some are slang (Wets), and one is Greek bread.

See where this piece of junk  takes you. :bigsquaregrin:    

Second generation (NB)

 

 

The redesigned MX-5 was previewed at the Tokyo Motor Show in October 1997. In February 1998, Mazda released the second-generation MX-5, production code NB, for the 1999 model year.

:yep:

We (many of us ;)) understand the SMCS spec line over rides anything previously specified. There is no year 1998 Miata within the spec lines. Therefore the NB model year starts with the year 1999.

Whatever Dave, I feel like the SM director, It's not right, fair, written, he touched me.

 

Please state the proposed statement for submission and review.
