    Sweet. I assume these ship in primer finish? Also, which rear window is installed? Plain glass or electric defrost glass?

    Problem is, the price is for Mazda Team Support Racers. Makes no mention if they will even sell to the general Miata population. And if the $1535 is discounted for their racers, what is the going rate for the average Joe? I would guess somewhere between $2000 and $2300.

    So a used top should come out on top, or rather, bottom of the price range for the average Joe. I'd bet the prices of *nice* tops go down a little if less racers are buying them used.

    For what it's worth, carbonmiata does an OEM replica top. Full FRP weighs 24 pounds and comes in at $800 with an acrylic window. $500 shipped to port, $900 shipped to your door (info from their site).

    So, about $1,700 shipped to you, brand new.

    You need, what, 2 track days a year? It's not hard to get signed up.

    Probably about right if they are ever made publicly available. When you could order them off any Mazda website years ago they were $2400-2500.
    I've got a lot less horsepower - luckily they are Japanese horses - usually in better shape and more motivated.

    Last week I heard you can buy a NEW 5-speed transmission for $1287.
    I wish I could have bought one before to install with my NEW Ecotec engine.
