TWS used to butt-rape you on the price, but they dropped it to where it is worth the extra cost for the convenience.

They are making mine to where it can't fall off. V-bands FTW baby! Maybe I will let you take a look if you come to show you what a real track car looks like ........................and how a novice driver can make it look like crap lol. Seriously this car will be way above what my skill level needs, but better to have some headway.

Yeah man, I got in my car with real suspension and 300whp and though "whoa, this is not the same car."

Seriously man, I want that v-band kit so bad that next time we meet DO NOT show it to me. I don't need to know. I'm taking that money and putting it toward a proper truck.


Oh, and I can't wait to play with you guys. Hopefully I learn to drive by then. However, I'll probably bring dad's new 38' triple slide-out Prevost mini-coach...and some liquor.

Its pretty irritating to roll around the track and not be able to make more than 10psi at redline.

I just gotta say I think its awesome that the stupid funn we have been having here in Cali has rubbed off on Miata track junkies across the country and inspired some to do the same. Organize it, make it happen, go fast, blow up some ****, tell great stories.
