I would sell drugs to an undercover cop for one of those!


Can't ******* believe I'm about to say this.. *IF* you import one don't swap in a miata motor. Turbo F series honda engine would be PERFECT in that car with the proper ring/pinion gear to keep low end torque to a minimum..

Build it like a brick shithouse and run 40lbs of boost. How much race fuel could it possibly consume? I've wanted one for years.

In other news, I was reading a for sale ad for one, and the seller said the stock motor revs to 10,000rpm.

There is a shop that mods them near where I used to play basketball. I can barely fit a miata, don't want to think about one of those.

I have seen a few of them in person and spoke to a guy who owned one at one of the goodwood breakfast club meets a few months ago. Sat in his and it is so ridiculously small in the flesh. Its about the size of an old bug eyed sprite. They look very bad *** when kitted up, but it honestly makes a miata seem a bit lardy. Its just a step to far if you are even close to 6 foot tall.

In for a group import. Every car game I've had that had these I've gone nuts on them. I always drool. Why do we never get the cool cars in the states?

I've always liked them too. Always the car I picked for kei car races on forza/gt.

I mention the S15 Sivia being denied for import. The Hyundai Genisis is selling like hot cakes. Couldn't turn a corner in New Mexico without some Dbag with one.
