So after you've dumped a shitload of money only to be a freeway, 3-honk super-star, do you ever stop and think that maybe you chose the wrong platform?

A super light car with HUGE aftermarket support for turbocharging that can easily have the power to weight ratio of most 800hp cars. Yup. He choose the wrong car.

How stupid of him to not start with something more expensive, heavier and have to pay top shelf prices for retarded **** like supra owners, what a retard lol!

Srsly... When damn near every modded turbo Miata in the world numbers probably less than 300?

We are few. And by we I mean you, because like most on here my **** ain't even boosted yet.

Yeah I think I picked a fine platform, 2000 pounds and most parts are cheap plus its rwd.
Youre a smart one.

It really depends. As long as I can trap 100 in the 1/8th and 130 in the 1/4 while consistently pulling 1.6/7 60's I should be happy. It's not really a numbers issue, more of just dialing in the car how I want it. But I'll more than likely end up around the 500~hp mark.

That being said, my friend (rival-also named Josh) sent me pics of the dents he just put in his trunk from death launching off the line....he trapped 108 in the 1/8th and got booted for not having a cage, lol.

Holy thread drift!!!!!

Jazn, updates A.S.A.P.

Youre a smart one.
AWD is king on the street. DSM's are just as cheap, with a aftermarket that puts this one to shame. RWD can work well, but you need huge rear tires and the Miata falls short in that department. The weight is the best thing going for Miata's.

Are you just defensive when you try to call me stupid, or did you just really not think about other platforms before you started tumbling down the rabbit hole?

I never called you stupid, but many of my friends have DSM's and it seems they're fixing them more then driving them. I'd rather have a car with 50/50 weight distribution and handles like a go-kart then drive a DSM. Traction isn't an issue and you don't need huge tires either, you must not know who eliminator was on m.net? Also, 24.5 inch slicks fit no problem.

You didn't directly call me stupid, you just insinuated it and I don't see the difference. No harm, no foul.

DSM's are fine if you start with a stock car, build them right and avoid cheap ****. Same rules apply to all other cars.

I was aware of eliminator, but never paid attention to his tire size or traction. If you can dead hook at the top of third then I'll eat my words, but only time will tell which is what I've been saying all along.

Still in for the finale!

Can't you swap with any 5sp miata input shaft?

Get it together this car needs to come out for a Cruise I wanna see it try to keep up with some Supras and Evos. I hope you got the PROefi T/C hooked up and configured.

How you like the PRO EFI? I used to have a 128 box in my supra. Larry tune your car? or AMS do it?

Larry is setting everything up on my proEFI as well as tuning it, once I get everything all set up I will be out for cruises. I see Reed around once in awhile, heard he ran 9s lately.
