Dont hate. He can do what he wants to it. Even if you think it ruins the car.
His(turbo) > Mine(no turbo)

I personally am not a fan of the kit or the "drifto-gayness crap" but its his, so he may do as he pleases.

What the hell...not what the cars are designed to do.

For that matter, they weren't designed to hit the race track. How many of you had to replace stock suspension and brake pads?? If you want to be so specific about what a car was and was not meant to do, then your miata is only good for good gas mileage in a "attractive" body, with the ability to put the top down and a comfortable but secure ride.

While I think the 0 offset wheels look silly on stock suspension or ride height, they are cheap and actually would improve the track qualities of a miata, and not the drift qualities.

You need a hard top...baddddd. otherwise. not bad for "bored at work" photos.

elesjuan...don't you also apply for ricey lights and tall aluminum wing, Mr. I roll on 17's?

Do some more reading on the miata and what was in mind when they designed it.

I still don't get it, if a cars not your taste....then ignore it. If I commented on every car I thought was put together wrong, I would be on the forums day and night. Like when I'm out on the roads and I see some kid in a shitpiece staring at me....I usually yawn and look the other way. Nice cars get a thumbs up and or wave!

I will always say, to each his own.

As a miata owner and somone who build their own kit, rebuild his own turbo, and making my own mega squirt I think I know what "they had in mind" when they designed the miata. Concepts however do not always directly translate. because once built, the miata is nothing more than a affordable "cute" commuter car. Only suited "worse" for drifting by its short wheel base, which is also what helps give it the "light" and thus gas thrifty nature.

From your profile pick the amount of negative camber your running does not seem to be "What they had in mind".

Sorry for bursting your bubble, but no one who designed the miata and sold them at a dealership intended anyone to take their daily driver to the track. You can certainly strip it down and cage it and do that. But I can do that to an E30 BMW doesn't mean thats "what they had in mind".

You obviously know nothing about the car which you drive.

http://www.amazon.com/Mazda-Performa.../dp/0760304378

Buy it, Read it, Learn from it. Then maybe you might avoid a situation where your foot is deep down your throat.

I'm still waiting for you to tell me how track qualities will be improved on a car with +0 offset wheels that are 8" wide and have 185mm tires stretched onto them. If he had proper fitting tires on those wheels, it'd *almost* look good to me.

Call me a ricer and see if I give a ****, but everything I do on my car is 100% performance related. Do I give a **** if my wheels are 18 pounds a pop? Nope. Whys that you ask? Very simply because I think the power my car will be cranking out when I'm done will be more than enough. Oh, and those wheels are stock wheels installed onto a miata by Mazda, with the factory size tires. While the car they were issued to might be 9 years newer I really don't give a **** because I paid 300 bux for 5 of those wheels total.


kthanksbye.
