It'll get traction, be RWD and fun if you drive it in reverse.

No one here cares that you insult the forum, we know what we have/are.

We prefer to have a small community full of useful, informative people, rather the biggest forum we can build full of useless douchbags.

So far you have proven that you are unable to contribute anything to us, and even better you cannot even do maths (power divided by weight = OMG racecar!!!). Stop asking silly questions you havnt researched.

if you can't have fun in a stock miata you aren't doing it right.

I do have a motorcycle... but want a cheap, small RWD car that is fun to drive. My number 1 goal is FUN to DRIVE. Speed/power is only part of that equation.. but since I drove the stock miata and was not impressed, I thought that adding power would help the situation.
Please don't hate...

Anyone in the central ohio area with a ~200-250hp turbo miata that could take me for a ride sometime?
I hate to break this to you, but you only posted one small RWD car in your original post, so the decision should be easy.

You're welcome.
