Thumbs up i dont doubt you

this is awsome, i dont doubt your 0-60 speed, those dissers are just scared because they went out and bought a 60 to 80 thousand dollar ride and your little 25 thousand dollar ride is right up on their tails. im a huge porsche fan but you get way more bang for your buck with a miata.

"instaban"... as in you want me "banned instantly". you should really be more clear and specific about what it is you are saying. These little cars are fun they last forever and you can beat the **** out of em. Parts are inexpensive and with a little work you can give pritty much anyone on the road a run for their money. how many European cars can you say that about... non, they are built to break down and hard to work on, not to mention the fact that mercedes, BMW, Auti, VW etc. are drastically over priced and most of them break down within the first few months of purchase. They are just status symbols, non of those companies have sold a vehicle that can function at its full potential for years they are all playing the consumers, especially in the US. If you want a car that can last and run at high performance go Japanese or even the newer GM cars, as much as i hate to say it GM is finally making good cars, its about time since they have been making computer chips for NASA for years GM is sitting on the most advanced computer technology in the world, surpassing even Japan and China.

Regarding the thread. And not regarding Youtube comments stupidity, which has no place here.

Nice car. Going by the reliability of the Shurflo pumps from what I have seen online, upgrade to the newer gen pump when that dies.

It's not exactly the most accurate measure, but from the guage shots it does look like a 0-60 in the mid 4s. But the real numbers are on a drag strip, 60 foot and 330 times. If you are hitting 100 in 10 seconds, then you are trapping at something in the 110-120 range which is good for a 12 second ET with a decent 60 foot.

All right, settle down children.

miataroadster23, folks 'round here tend to get itchy when someone new shows up and immediately starts resurrecting old threads for no apparent purpose. They're a rowdy lot.

You'll note that the last activity in this thread was in June of 2009, so you're just sort of being a thread necromancer here.

Don't take it personally, you've just begun to experience the MiataTurbo hazing ritual. Roll with the punches and don't get defensive. It gets worse before it gets better.

Ahhh the infamous Miata Roadster Edition.....a gem to the real car collector, much like the US-market 1998 Special Edition Miata.


I'd expect a MIT student to have slightly more proper typing/English as well. It's really cool you've been working on cars so long! There was a member on here that was also a 'young mechanic' and he has spent many years now developing all types of parts for Miatas now. If you do a search for "Hyper" you will find this guy.

Thanks for stating the ******* obvious and the completely irrelevant tirade on european cars.

How on earth do you put pants on in the morning?

well if you really need me to explain this highly complicated concept... i choose between sitting or standing, (usually standing). I then point my (right) foot and slide my (right) leg through the (right) pant leg, and then point my (left) foot and slide my (left) leg through the (left) pant leg. I then pull my pants up to about hip level and then pull them down about 3 inches to straighten my boxers, maybe add a small twist to acquire ultimate comfort... any other questions?
