I have used a few ACT clutches. They hold the power and are not to annoying. I will take an FM1 any day of the week over and ACT clutch. Pedal feel is way easier, they are slightly cheaper, and hold more torque. I just want to give noobs a choice so they don't think I am sucking on the FM ball sack all the time.

Fair enough.

.....So yesterday I put on the stock suspension.
EL OH EL! Talk about monster truck height
At least it doesn't drive like a stancemobile now though, I can actually drive to work without feeling like Michael J Fox.

Changed the oil, changed the front brake pads, aired up the tires, checked things over.




Oh and the best part - did I mention that he installed Purple Neon Underglows?



That's right. He did it as a joke/trolling though, not actually taking it seriously, but yeah I went ahead and removed those yesterday.

So if anyone wants some super mad legit JDM PURPLE neon underglow light kit for a Miata, holla at meh, I'll hook you up

Since the car is raised/on stock suspension, the Flat-Out's look kinda weird on it.

So she's wearing new kicks, OEM 16's wrapped in BFG Sport Comp 2's







I actually really like the look.
What I don't really like though is the noticeably stiffer ride quality over the higher sidewalled falkens :(

Classy. I'm really digging the Sport Comp 2s on the WRX, I bet they are equally great on the Miata. I'm guessing that's a 205 on the stock rim? I wish they made these in a 205 for a 15

Needs some low, I can hook you up brother.

haha thanks gaiz

my "fast" car is now the mulletstang, and with all the cars/projects I'm doing for other people these days, I have absolutely no time whatsoever to even entertain the idea of modding "H3AVY P1G"

My favorite part about this car is being able to drive it in anger, full tilt, 10/10, and not even worry about breaking the speed limit

took the mulletstang to the drag strip. stock 265/35/20 Pirelli Pzero's simply refused to hook up, my '60s were on par with FWD cars

Anyways, with a 2.4 '60 it still managed [email protected]

Putting on new wheels tonight (if the lug nuts I ordered show up)
