I think the adaptation occurs in going from TC/VSA off with all-season tires on the Miata to nannies in "sport" in their own cars. The Miatas will teach them car control at lower speeds, especially...

Yeah it's crazy he ran a 1:21.8 just those mods. That's getting close to Boss 302 laptimes (1:21.5). Helps that it's such a tight track.
