Default Bought my first miata in the f/s forum!

Actually- my first two! Anyone remember these?
https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/showthread.php?t=14781

I figure I should introduce myself finally

The 1990 now:


It's still rough- but it's working it's way towards a CSP car...albeit slowly.

I live in Blacksburg, VA...and I'm loving the car.

Previous cars:
1991, 1994, 1995 Saturns of various flavors (1991 HS car)
1987 Celica GT-S, 1988 Celica Alltrac
2000 Eclipse GT
2006 WRX (DS car)
1995 Neon (STS car)

So in other words, I finally know how great RWD and a good suspension design really are!

Unfortunately boost puts me in SM2 or XP for autocross. A '99 motor and rear are going in in the next month. It will be hard to resist the temptation as the suspension gets more dialed- in though

Not scared of the vettes... but I also don't have the $100k it'll take to come within a second or two of the RX-7s which will inevitably take over XP as they have SM2.
