J/K dude, build looks sick. Ohh, and getting your car "jacked" in CT is highly unlikely.

Vash-
Did you really think you were the only one? If you ever attended any Cart CT or FCSCC Auto X events, there are two other turbo Miata's floating around.

Btw cars do get stolen in CT. Especially around Waterbury, Hartford, Bridgeport, New Haven, etc. Maybe not so much Miatas, but I have seen alot of Hondas over the years.

At the last Honda-Tech meet at Marcus Dairy in Danbury, two cars were stolen afterwards. I dont go to those meets, but a couple friends of mine did. I only have one Honda now. It's bone stock and thats the way its staying.

I think it was just a test fitting. I'm sure the final outer tie-rod to knuckle fitting will look great.

I wouldn't be too sure about that... my buddy Pat had his turbo Escort stolen from in front of his apartment in Waterbury... a week after we pulled the motor.

******* crackheads in that town.

Theres a big surprise. Never saw it coming..

Nice looking car, don't like the flares or wheels, though.

Looks like you did good work. Wonder what the weight savings is and how the stiffness compares to factory unibody.

I love reading on this drift ****, always makes for a good laugh. I love the "its driving your car right on the edge" arguments. Ive never understood ********, but if thats your thing, good luck. It kind of reminds me of the whole fast and the furious street racing scene that was big when the first movie came out. Everyone and their brother had a wing and euro lights on their civic and farted around town trying to race each other. Still see some left overs today. Yes I know the bullshit history of ********, I dont want to hear it again.

nice looking build, why waste it on concrete walls? It is going to rip like a bat out of hell for sure (if done correctly), but if it does end up biting the bullet, sell it here first

I subjectively wasted a weekend to go watch a 'drift" event with an open mind and I must say, was the biggest waste of time. There were a ton of nice looking cars when we got there... by the time we left there were a ton of trashed cars. Might as well have turned it into a demo derby. One guy I actually know purposely slammed his unmolested 240 into a wall because he wanted "battle scars." God what a dumbfuck.

Get more that 20 something posts before talking **** Chief..

Great build, keep it up.

I would listen to BenR in regard to the ow end power and bogging out. Its horrible ripping it up into a shrinking radius turn and rowing your arm away.

You look like you are doing things right here though man!!
Awesome
