FWIW, you would be suprised how much fun ******* around in a grass/dirt/gravel/mud/snow field with 20 other idiots is. I have that '02 WRX in the picture, and '06 STI, a '90 AWD/Turbo DSM, and our '99 Turbo Miata. I've been to Pro Rally, club races, PDX, autocross, rallycross, drag, and one drift. The two most fun groups to hang around with are the Pro/Club Rally folks and the Rallycrossers. Next would be Club Racers and Autocrossers, but many seem to be wound a bit too tight. I can't take the drag/drift crowd for very long, too much immaturity and drama.
If you want to stick to dry smooth tarmac, like to scare yourself, are looking to impress your buddies with a slammed ride, smokey burnouts, and enjoy spending lots of 'quality time' in the garage, trade for the miata. Don't get me wrong, I love our miata, but it's very 'specialized'.
If you want the fastest and most confidence inspiring way to get from point A to point B under non ideal conditions, and are willing to try some friendly competiton in the loose stuff, keep the scoobie.
Lol, I'm the troll? Re read what I bolded, that pretty much defines a troll. Had to ruin a nice welcoming thread; I was pleasantly surprised not having at least one dick wad, up until you posted.
Second, thanks for the compliments on my car.
Third, my mind was not made up, and I have no desire for the miata after everybody's posts, so don't act like you know what you're talking about.
Everyone here turned me off of the miata pretty much in the first few posts, and the thread isn't even about that anymore. Now it's obviously just an off topic thread about people interested in my car, my personal preferences when it comes to cars, and people giving me advice about rally cross events. Really not much mention of the original miata on this whole 2nd page.
In fact, feel free to move this out of general miata chat.
Done feeding the troll.
Dude rally is awesome and you are just a lame-o subaru driver if you do not love the rally. I mean, you don't even have snow tires on your car. You disgrace japanese people and everything else that is american.
