I wonder what they thought they were doing with the front bumper?

and...wtf? re-design the rear suspension? I have no clue why they though the suspsension needed rocker arms. There are easier ways to solve suspension travel issues in the rear.

I'd probably drive the **** out of it. Honestly if that was someone I knews car I would find it quite awesome. Its just not quite everything i'd want in my own.

It needs bigger tires...that is officially my biggest complaint with it.

I see no thought process or end result. All I see is a black Miata with a rotary swap. Other than that, it doesn't look like anything special.

My question is... What were they trying to accomplish?

Did you not notice the use of 2 huge oil coolers along with the intercooler? Seems like a wise choice to me of function merged with form and i can't think of many bumpers that could allow for so much airflow to the coolers.

My only gripe with the car is the 4x4 ride height and the stereo equipment.

Smaller wheels, lower it to at least stock height or lower, and lose all that gay **** in the trunk, you got a badass Miata...I wonder how that CF inner fenders theory works out? Wonder if it's just for looks or is there function?

looks like a show car.

just what is the composite envisioning?

and those aren't horizontally opposed shocks. they're parallel for god sake. i can't like anything that has "we're dumb" written across it, sorry.

yeah, but they dont oppose each other. like the subie engines are horizontally opposed. like if you stand facing another man in a locker room when your'e naked. that's horizontally opposed. and very bold.
