Default MiniTec Douchebaggery - serious lack of imagination

******* give me a break... sure the SalvageWon Eliminator isn't a patented design - but at least try to be ******* original. Might be why you haven't seen the J swaps on track yet either...?? smh

For the record: a Salvagewon Eliminator

Serious lack of imagination on their part and a pretty sorry attempt at copying the SalvageWon guys.

How original can you be with a chopped up miata?

Valid question. I think they got jealous of all the attention the Eliminators got at matg that they had to build one.
Guess the saying holds true - imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

I was expecting to see it and have the reaction: "I'm sure it is similar but, how different could a chopped up miata be?". Then I saw the pictures and thought, they even stole the "design" elements. I mean there is room in the world for more track day miata chops, but just blatant plagiarism hurts all.
