Default Miata in Readers Ride of SCC...

So I was looking thru my latest SCC and saw a decent looking red 92 Miata under the Readers Ride. Has a set of Panasport looking wheels (Work Equip 03's), whatever, looks kinda neat, until I start reading...

1. He has switched over to a sidedraft carb setup.. I guess he doesn't like making much power
2. He has staggered wheels, with 14x8.5 front and 15x9 rear with Toyo T1-R's in 195/45. Jesus H. Christ
3. You can faintly see a sticker that says NA>Turbo or something to that extent. Along with saying that his Miata is the " baddest *** Mazda in the world and can show that Renown 787B a thing or two".
He makes baby Jesus cry. WTF!

Dude chill, his car's hot, I like it. I don't see anything wrong with the wheels, that's the way to get low and that's his style, I have respect for that. Carb's are cool, they sound sick, he's not into big power so what, live and let live.

195 on a 15x9 wheel does that fit correctly?

To comment #3.

Now this jackass will have every big turbo rotary in SoCal looking for him.
My suggestion for this dick is "don't talk **** if you can't back it up".

Turbo>NA

Well I wasn't trying to ruffle any feathers. He just seemed a bit cocky.. and putting 195's on a 8.5 or 9in. wheel just seemed pretty silly. The car looked pretty nice!

The tire size is purely to fit the wheels on the car. His car is at 10.25" ride height all the way around, and it looks ******* SICK.

I went to books a million and checked it out. His car does look badass. The carb setup is unique for sure.
