thats why its OBO. I'm not sure if it has a torsen or not. Both tires still light up, and it handles well. I'm not the original owner, I'm not sure what he may have done with it. (It came with a JR SC, and other goodies.)

Style bar with the belts around it = PROJECTILE in an accident! Makes my head hurt just thinking about it.

I will just move them off the bar then. Either way they are still connected to the same bolts.

Miatas are so balanced that it is easy to think you have an LSD when you don't, especially in a straight line. But your car didn't have a factory Torsen.

I'm not ON the guy! Maybe it's more secure than I think! Maybe it'd save his life or the person who buy's his car if he sells. Maybe I don't know my A** from a hole in the ground. If I'm right though, it could save a life or serious injury. I like Drewbroo well enough to care :gay:

even if it were just wrapped around and bolted to the ground, its not supposed to be below -30* and up to +5* from the back of the seat right?

I know the base package mine came with has no torsen. (No power anything) I just don't know for sure or not if the car has one, I cannot guarantee it does, so I'm not making a claim that it does. What I have listed is what the car has + Magnacore wires.

How bout instead of flaming the car, you could give me a suggestion on how to correct it. If your so concerned with everyones well being and all.

Less flames, more suggestions would be helpful.

Nice car.

Have you thought about parting back to stock? The suspension would probably bring $500, the seats close to that, maybe $3K for the turbo setup, $500 for the rimps, etc etc etc.

It'd be a lot of work, but you might well come out ahead. Not having a Torsen will impact the sale more than you might think.

As far as the seatbelts go, I'd run the stockers, sell the harnesses ($50?). To run harnesses, you need a harness bar or a real roll bar.

I will order a harness bar then. I should be able to acquire in the near future. More bracing never hurt anyone.

no. unless you wanna fly out of the car on impact.

as long as the harnesses are bolted to the stock locations, they will be fine.

And $8500 with no Torsen sounds a bit high.
How does 7600 sound then? Not sure if it has a torsen discount.
If safety is that much of a concern for whoever buys it, I can install a cage/roll bar at their cost.

"How bout instead of flaming the car, you could give me a suggestion on how to correct it. If your so concerned with everyones well being and all."

Not being a smart ***, did my comments really come accross as "Flaming"!?! I'm not trying to! It looked dangerous to me so I pointed it out. I really wasn't trying to bust on you or your car. Like I said before, I may not know a thing about this. Might be perfectly safe. I wouldn't go buying anything else for a car you are selling just because some idiot on a forum said the belts look unsafe. You or whoever buys your car can do with it what you want. If our positions were reversed I wouldn't change the way the belts are fastened just to sell the car! If you are selling it, the buyer can mod it any way they want.

The car looks great with quality mods making good power. If you are selling I agree with Ben, if you have original seats and belts put them back in to sell. You'll make more selling the aftermarkets separately. Parting it completely back to stock doesn't make sense though. Too much work.

Good luck. If you're car was on my coast I'd be looking at it.

Yeah parting it out isn't worth my time, or never hearing the end of "you always working on your car," coming from my wife. And flaming doesn't have to mean it could easily mean

3600+ posts, a member for 2 1/2 years and still not boosted. Spelling is the least of his issues.
