Pretty cool. Not much info online that I can find, though I did see a build thread over on nasioc with a WRX drivetrain.

What's the plan? Autocross, HPDEs, or just general street mayhem?

All of the above. There are 3 other frames out there, I think they are all getting subbie drivetrains.

I have come full circle. I go from a car with full standalone engine management to one with carbs and points :/

I have seen those on Top Gear, well it looks very similar.

That thing must be a blast to drive.

I'll miss the miata, and I'm sure I'll get one again one day. But for a toy....anything worth doing is worth doing well

That particular model has definitely never been on TG, as it's less than a year old, and is built as a semi-custom vehicle by a very nice fellow in Kentucky.

Very ******* sexy, though. Any particular reason you chose the Porsche engine over the Subie?

Love it man - very unique. Sort of like a low budget Ariel Atom. That thing should be a lot of fun.

Here and I thought I was buying your Miata so you could spend more time finishing the MEV...


What are the details on the MEV, btw?
