Default So, I saw my first boosted miata (other than mine)

So, we went down to import alliance at the nashville superspeedway and it is pretty ******* sweet. A lot of really clean cars. Also, some really interesting stuff such as the finished civette.

I don't like the tail-light surrounds at all, but I'm almost convinced on the fuel lid.

He's also got more money in his intercooler than a lot of guys around here do in their entire car.

Those are Garage Vary tail lights, they do look badass molded in, but at around $800 I'd want to be able to remove them.

I saw this miata there. It ran a 13.1 1/4th with 130hp. It is 160hp now. It weighs 1800lbs with a 9lb carbon fiber hardtop.

Does the fact that they weigh in at whopping 4 lbs. help ya any?

Also, Jimmys car has been the center of many a controversial thread on another forum. However, it speaks for itself with the potential of IRTBs.....

The BRG I looked at in richmond had that lid. Its uber ugly in person. I mean, it looks so large compared to the car that it almost looks like a cartoon or something.

Well, whoever was driving it said that he was a "novice" and did a 1:15 but if "his driver" was in the car, he could probably do a 1:10
