Default First time Miata owner and new member

Hello all,

My name is Seth and I am a first time Miata owner. I purchased a 90 with 127k miles. Ive always liked Miata and finally bought one! I was looking for forums to join and I happened to scroll by here and thought it would be a solid site to be a part of. I am aware flaming of new members is a right of passage, so I shall do my best to not step on anyones toes and hopefully become an active member.

As for my Miata, it has a all stock motor and just a couple of bolt ons.
-catback exhaust
-static nine frame rail supports
-raceland coils (plan to upgrade asap)
-extended knuckles
-circuit sport quick release with grip royal wheel
-PBM shift ****

I have quite a bit planned for this car in the near future. I am currently very active in the Arizona drift community. I originally come s-chassis but decided to move to a Miata for my new track car! Although most likely frowned upon I do plan to make this my drift car..

Pictures:
(only shots I have from when I first bought it, will add more tomorrow!)

Looks like a solid car. You won't get any hate from me for drifting a miata. Any pics of your s chassis?

Miatas make poor drift cars because of their low polar moment of inertia. A 240sx is far easier to control. It is one of the same reasons that Miatas are great road race cars and 240sx is notsomuch.

Good luck.

I keep feeling sad for the poor little white miata that's going to get ragged out and destroyed

I've seen this movie, the black miata always dies first. Unless there isn't one.
