Default Remember the 616 HP Miata

The yellow one that was for sale?

Here he is on the track with his new Miata......under 10 sec on the strip.

There are a couple of other vids too I think.

I wouldn't want to drive such a short wheel-base car that fast down the track.

dont forget to look at the two runs in the Porsche. Nothing like a flat six running full out through the gears!

That miata is very nice but I hope they get a lot better times. I've seen street cars hit 5's in the 1/8.

Yup, I really don't get it either. I love having the extra power from the turbo but if I was going to build a race car for the dragstrip it wouldn't be a miata.
