the thing's rediculous, which makes it awesome.

I think Dan was announced as "Rappadan the dragon drivin' driftin' man"


technically, it's a straight up racecar (full cage, spec miata suspesion, welded diff). I built and installed a megasquirt for it, so it's just a matter of tuning it up a bit. but it's currently running something like 10psi.


the most gansta part is the "R" lip on the rear

yeah, you'd thing a wing is the last thing you'd want on the back- don't you want the rear loose? I know those wings are making some kind of downforce a speeds much lower than anybody would think. I tested one on my old NB and the difference with and without was a real eye opener.
