I know a few peeps in your PNW area that actually do drift (Hotboyz has a miata) and I have yet to see a over cambered vehicle successfully compete.

Whats with the carbon fiber fender? Not that I am doggin on that, but its just really really random...

I really hope for your sake that you have a stronger rear diff if you think youre going car skating

Are you sporting the super restrictive stock exhaust with that crappy greddy kit?




welcome to mt.net; if you make past this gang bang then you might last.

^ haha Yes, I have a 1.8 open thats welded. Also to be honest I have only hit up parking lots and been to 2 events at Evergreen in Monroe. This is being built for next season which I plan to be consistantly at every comp day and actually be running for grassroots.

Yes the Diamond racing wheels are gone,

Also my exhaust is a Turbo Tonys DP, to a 3" Magnaflow (no cat).

As for my fenders being carbon, I needed then because there over fenders. They allow me to go full lock all 52 degrees of it with out eating up the fenders.

Also the Crap Greddy kit, only thing still intack is the Mani and Turbo. Everything else is changed up all stainless lines, welded oil drain bung, 315cc injectors, huge front mount, hks v1 bov. I dont see whats crap about it. Minus the manis that crack, I like the late turbo response, lag equals traction in my book.

Thanks for input I will take some more pictures of it this weekend, see if it is any better.

The tibby is pretty peppy. Make your miata have the same chart and we'll give you props

^^ Thank you, I have only had the Miata for about 6 months and it didnt run and was just a beat up NA. I picked it up cheap and it is a work in progress. It will be better, but it in my eyes is coming along great!

I belive that would be insane, the Tib is already scary for me to drive at times. All im really wanting to do with the Miata is max out this 15g, think it will be just right.

Why the **** would you do that to a Tiburon? Maybe you like the body style but I think it is ******* atrocious. I saw the engine bay pic and went, "oh that's pretty cool," then I scrolled to the next picture and barfed. Give me your fenders on the Miata though.

I love the Tibs lines so I lowered it on coils and got a carbon vented hood. The rest is stock, I love cars that are simple and clean and **** body kits period. Like some of the Miatas on here with huge mouths that look like some catfish or something. Thats atrocious, but anyway thanks for the input!

With life as a new priority of mine, this is how the miata has lived for the past year or so.



I'm seriously considering dumping a few grand into it to finally finish it. Also debating letting it sit like this for another year. lol

Vash, you must get that car running. What's wrong with it again? Even if it needs a motor, it shouldn't cost a few grand o.0.

Yeah, it doesn't exactly live in a nice garage or anything. I'm still waiting for the 16' chute to come down on it one day.

I bought it mariner blue, had it repainted once, then a second time adding the black. I'm really happy with how it came out, so thanks!

It runs! Just overheats at random. lol

I think the thermostat is sticking, just haven't taken the time to check and/or swap it. With winter here it's been put on the back burner.

I stopped driving the car because the reg expired and I need to pass emissions to re-register it. Long story short, I don't have time to **** with it, so it sits.

Hopefully, things stay solid and this spring I'll make the time to get it all sorted out so I can enjoy it again. Now that I have a decent daily it makes me not miss the miata so much, although at times I would much rather be driving it. You guys know that love and hate relationship that comes with these cars.

I've heard this before at least a couple times.

And this.

I really hope one of these years you'll actually do it.
Your car has so much money and time into it. It deserves to be up and running and you enjoying it.
