You're the first person ever to have this problem. That's why no one knows what you're talking about.

Well, that's part of the reason. The other is that you can't spell or punctuate for ****.

1.8,
Are you ******* serious? Shack? I know this is the internet and all, but come on man, how about "shake"... as in shake, rattle, and roll?

A "shack" is like a fishing shack... or a love shack.

And yes, the famous Miata "shimmy" is what it's called. Go to miata.net and do a title seach for "shimmy" in the NA and NB main forums. There are literally hundreds of threads about it, and how to fix it.

If you filled out your location in your profile we would know where you are and would probably understand why your english is so bad.

My car used to shack too. Then I watched Kazaam. It was bad enough that I lit my car on fire with the movie in it. My car no longer shacks.
