    Good-Win Racing Fiat 124

    Picked up new project Fiat 124 today, ostensibly wife's new daily driver, already nicknamed: 'Sophia'. Welcome Sophia, fun begins today with spring swap, wheels and tires, etc. My last Fiat 124 was about three decades ago....that kid is me with the 78 Fiat 124.

    Already drove the snot out of it...and then put it on the lift and started taking it apart!

    Tons to learn, diving in!




    Did some freeway time with top up and AGREE, for anybody wanting the most quiet version of the ND/124 chassis....they want the Fiat. Particularly with the narrower 16 inch wheel/tires the ride is noticeably more quiet and smooth compared to ND, despite fact Fiat spring rates and sway bar rates are HIGHER (already pulled and measured a lot). Body lean is less than ND in stock form, though still rolls quite a bit, just not near as much as stock ND (rear sways on ND 11mm, on Fiat 14mm).

    Woo hoo! That sure didn't take long! Congratulations on the 124, and hope you both enjoy it for a long time!

    Got a question for ya. AT an autocross yesterday, it appears that the ND transmissions are being damaged in competition. Apparently, something like 5 NDs had transmission problems with 2nd gear in one weekend recently (I think at a National Tour). Since the Fiats use the NC transmissions (there was also a suggestion that the BRZ/FRS twins also use the same trans) with some sort of modifications (gear ratios? stronger components?), it would seem that the Fiat should be less likely to have issues.

    Any comments?

    Already finding little details in the Fiat that are unique, our ND GT does not include these little soft rubber spring cushions.

    Fiat transmission is based on NC unit, we have used those transmissions through 300 hp, certainly reliable past 250hp. My 2007 Supercharged NC currently makes 321 hp at the wheels, etc. Issues the ND is having with new Skyactiv transmission not relevant to Fiat version.

    If this is the Good-Win I know about in the Miata community then we can see some really nifty things happening with this 124 and perhaps some bits that will be available as upgrades.

    I see a potential new vendor appearing here soon.
    2014 Abarth, Rosso/Nero, basically stock w/a few trinkets.

    Excellent. "Sophia." I love it! Certainly much better than "Brad."

    "Sophia" is an automatic, correct? It's my understanding the first shipment is all autos. What are your impressions so far with it?

    Yes, it's the same person, posted some pics and linked to driving reviews on the 124 over here recently:
    http://www.fiat500usaforum.com/showt...l=1#post775547

    Somewhere there was a link to folks on the Miata forum chatting about it too, and they liked the 124! That was exciting to read about and perhaps some will want to have one of each. Now that we have someone who is very familiar with the Miata, and is becoming equally familiar with the 124, we will see goodies. Oh, and the Good-Win person also said that the Fiat engineers were interested in what he can do too!!!

    What I like so far is we get to follow along, seeing parts. And his commentary, telling us what is different or the same or an improvement or what could be improved. It doesn't mean a whole lot to me, as I don't have a 124, but will be a hugely popular feature for those who do get one now...or get one in the future. Reference materials rock!
