Their welding fabrication forum is awesome, all kinds of good stuff in there. homemadeturbo.com has a good one as well.

honda-tech is a really great forum that has a bunch of good stuff in there with some really insanely built turbo hatchs. Too bad most people on there or Mad VtEC or Mad JdM TiTe brO!

I used to be all worried about the whole "OMG you can't run a rollbar/cage on the street unless you wear a helmet all the time!" thing until Braineack backed his car into a pole, and nobody's head hit the rollbar.

its a little different in a miata, i definitely wouldnt want that thing in my car, especially with those bolts over head

not to mention it doesnt even look functional. the front bars are just there with no triangulation...
