yeah, if you saw these cannons you'd **** your pants and run straight to the gym...too bad you'll need to pick up some gear though because your Neanderthal genetic garbage won't yield muscle mass like this. Seriously dude, ask your GF, she loves my arms, that dirty bitch loves water-sports too.


seriously though, its just a little too annoying for street driving.

I think you would get used to it, after 1 month of removing it I forgot all about it.

I know you probably posted it somewhere but what size is that turbo?

Its primarily a track car, but I like to drive it on the street when its nice out.
Say what? Put a manual rack in it and quit being a sissy.

Good job man you're almost there.



I don't know how you can resist just doing an overnight thrash so you can drive the car.

I'm going to BEGi to pick up the part, then taking the week off to get the car track ready. It would be a really bitch to get the car far from home and have a minor problem.

Don't be a puss about the de-powered rack.....
All I've ever owned were manual racked Miatas.
I swear the only time it will give YOU fits is when you're trying to pull that ***** out your *** at a dead stop.
It isn't any more difficult on the street, trust us....
If my little girl can turn it while I push it, so can you.
Good luck, and let Wags or myself know when you need anything.
Laters........

De-powered rack only sucks if you are at a dead stop, or parallel parking. Neither of which you should be doing anyway.

I drove wag's car on the street last weekend...its going to drive me crazy on the street. I drove it on the track and really enjoyed it...actually I was amazed by how much more input and feel, and even more surprised by how much easier it was to put the car where I wanted it.

Its just going to be a bitch on the street.
