Same Ben?



Probably me, oddly enough, there are a couple of Bens here.

Jeff is a good guy and damn good driver. I remember him back at the balcony, and the only non turbo miata I've seen make smoke around irwindale.


If you want videos of him search "Jeff Abbot" on youtube.

I'd say at your mass, 120hp and hanging the rear out is quite the feat. There's a positive side to everything - I tore my shoulder up at 365# bench, lost 30lbs and watched my race laps drop nearly a half second (that's 30lbs of ballast gone from the wrong side of the car). I bet boost makes driving much easier and more fun. Welcome aboard.

I've seen cars flip at autocrosses but never nose dive, but it's a pretty common thing in drifting.
