Everyone and their brother has told me that they are hard to drift. Honestly I don't think they can be that bad, there's a whole forum dedicated to drifting them. I don't have much practice yet. I picked a miata because I wanted a convertable, and when you look at the cars on paper a miata has to be better than a 240 or any of the other options.
Anyways, even if it is hard, I like a challenge, and the miata is a blast to drive.
Even at the stock power level - plenty of people drift 240's and AE86's and both have a worse power to weight ratio than a stock miata.
Here's some pics of my miata:
I know the ITB's need filters. I did not make the ITB setup and I don't have the stock parts to make them go away. I'm completely sure they suck in dirt/rocks/snow/small animals 100% of the time. Please do not lecture me on them being shitty, I'm well aware of it.
Lemons has gone downhill lately. Last race we were in we spent 4 hours parked in the penalty box because someone ran into us when their brakes failed. It was super fun.
First lemons race we went to was a real 24 hour overnight event. It was super hard and super amazing. I had so much fun.
if anyone really wants pics of my other cars I can post them up.
