Default BADASS DEAL. CAR PUSHES WEIGHT. TRUST ME YOULL LOVE IT. (non-affiliated)

Just had to share this track car with you guys...maybe one unfortunate soul actually wants to buy....it.
ohhh, its a roadster but on the other hand its also a coupe so be wary of that.

But in all seriousness....has anyone noticed that lately ppl are trying to sell miatas for way too much?

That is typical craigslist.
I think craigslist brings out the imbreed in people, and the dumb.
I saw an ad once on my local craigslist, it was a photo of wheels and tires. The ad read something like, "Wheels and tires for sale". There was a price too, but I can't remember what it was, but I thought, "what car are these wheels from? What size are the wheels and the tires?" There are way too many craigslist ads with so much fail.

I dig through craigslist every now and then. No matter how much I might want something if the seller makes an ad like a full retard he doesn't get my money. And how is that thing "lowered"? Why not just say it make more power than a polar bear and can out DOHC NOS vette with Vtec? My miata has 3000 penguin pulse power!

To be fair, $5000 isn't terrible for that year in a decent shape. It's more than I would pay for sure, but not the worst I've ever seen.

not just miatas, everything.

Im looking for another daily driver and I've been pretty disgusted with the current pricing on things. For example, I want another 95-2004 5 lug tacoma... people are asking more now than when I sold my 5 lug V6 in 2006, and they have more miles on them too. its crazy

That's because you sold yours wrong. I'll bet you didn't advertise it as a "TECOMA, 5 LUG!!!!!! DOHC PUSHES WEIGHT!!!"

Anyone know the mathematical equation to figure out how much weight my car pushes, just so I know what to tell people? Does it technically pull the weight behind the rear tires and push the weight in front? It seems you push more weight by raising the ride height (maybe CG roll center factors in?) and adding underglow? Does a certain color of HID underglow push more weight then others?

Assuming positive direction is to the right,
F R = ( + 4 N ) + ( - 6 N ) = - 2 N = 2 N to the left F R = ( + 4 N ) + ( - 6 N ) = - 2 N = 2 N t

Boom.
