The amount of fabrication and other **** that they put into those things is impressive. I'll bet the price tag is too..




Is anyone else SHOCKED at how close the turbo4 is with the sc v8? That's really sad for the v8

Looks like the result of inbred cousins *******, but the sound of that V8 made my nuggets tingle.

Wonder what they cost. Probably WAYYYYYYY too much to justify on a Miata. At least at one time.

Im not sure how I feel about it. Obviously Im not a fan of giving it a neck flap. The prices are a joke, there is no way they are serious.

The red one looks OK, the headlights are sort of like an Lexus which is not neccesarily bad.

This also appears to be the hardest way possibly to accomplish a task. My bet is that a well done LSX will murder any of those cars.

I saw that too and upon further review it looks like they're angled in a way that the old upper control arms won't fit

doesn't make much sense to me, how does a 430 crank hp supercharged v8, run nearly even with a 240rwhp turbo car
