Default any heavy miata drivers?

I got to thinking about power to weight, compared to my sister's car...and my 188lbs doesn't help my cause.

Anyone else heavy as hell?

little under 6'3 165lbs....yeah sorry i don't feel the pain i guess
this also means my arms are skinny as hell and i can reach about everywhere on the miata without removing much of anything. Not always a good thing being light though.

I'm 6'1 and 180lbs. The only problem I have is the fact that I have to look through the top of the windshield. I'd love to lose my visors, but the current SCCA class rules don't allow that :(.

5'8", 147 lbs, 3%BF at last weigh-in. I can't row flyweight anymore! (Cutoff is 140)

But I still fit well in the Miata

I was the same way as some of you guys. I was 5'7" in 8th grade, and only grew 2 more inches since then. I am 11% bodyfat also and this is the lightest I have been since 10th grade. My junior year I got up to 235lbs and I was just massive at that point, and just felt strange. Perfect body for playing football though.

<--140

its funny, a friend of mine sweared that body weight would not affect straight line acceleration and told him i could feel a difference with my doughnut gone.

so i lined up my slow *** civic dx against his mx3 and it was dead even. then we switched drivers from a roll in one gear to take out any driver abilities and i pulled him by a 1/2 car bahaha he was about 210
