You may find it funny but a lot of people ask me "Is your car front wheel drive" and when I tell them "Its rear wheel drive" they sound very very surprised. This is the same reason why the Dodge Demon will succeed.

Who can fabricate an AWD kit for the miata? That would be cool. Taking an AWD miata rallycrossing would be an experience.

Everyone should be able to tell a Miata is RWD..... It has read disk breakes.

Everyone knows that FWD cars have drum breakes in the read


Side note my winter/bring the dog to the park car is a Pontiac SunRunner 2 wheel drive(Chev Tracker / Suz Sidekick) and everyone thinks it is a FWD ?
