If you want to make the car fast and handle corners well, this is the place to be. If you want to learn about making lots of reliable power, this is the place to be.

Yes, I actually have plans for the engine! I'm planning to go with a turbo and not an LS swap due to super strict modification rules over here. But I suddenly doubt that it is worth my time posting my progress on this "super positive and welcoming forum"

For the non-haters:

@hornetball: Thanks! "We're not really an appearance/style group here" I was not aware that it was only engine and tuning, so I do apologize for sharing. As mentioned, I have been painting a bit more since the pics were taken I've had the VMFA-531 - Grey Ghosts as inspiration.

@supercooper: Thanks! I have some power plans. I want to go with a turbo for starters.

@sixshooter: Thanks. That's the plan for this winter (hopefully)

That's a typical butthurt response. thicken up.

i have a lowered car without the cool paintjob, and seem to avoid the flaming because.....well....



i do...

Oh wow a fender made from license plates. How unique, I've never seen anyone do that before. You must be such a special snowflake.

If you've only owned it for a few months and have already done that much damage, I'm interested to see how far downhill this can go.

There's still a chance it can be saved. The paint job is cool, so if all of the hellastupid was removed and replaced with things that make the car faster/handle better than an '82 Oldsmobile with flat tires it would be a nice car.

Maybe OP is the one guy who will actually take a swagtasticjdmyo shitbox and turn it into something functional.

I'm not holding my breath. Because "hater" yo.

'92 US Marines Miata - F4 Phantom tribute - ClubRoadster.net

CR doesn't even seem to be into the liking of the plates.

what an ugly piece of crap

just like every other riced out heaping pile of crap on clubricer, the only exception being the pretty cool airbrush work.

No, OP took a perfectly good Miata and turned it into that hideous POS. There is no hope.

He swagged his car while swagging, so he had to swag it out to continue to swag while swagging, swag.

Huh? No he said he bought it at the beginning of the summer and has since "personalized it" (aka ruined it).

while you may think that this site is completely full of ethugging, pasty, fat guys who live in their mom's basement...

you're wrong.

virtually all members (at least those with over a few hundred posts) are very physically fit, handsome adonises with very cute girlfriends or supermodel wives. I wont get into average salary here, but suffice it to say it led to Occupy Wall Street.

Seriously. At what point did you think a license plate fender was a good idea?

LOL, this is great. We didn't even have to ban him. It's like my dog when he puts himself in time out after doing something bad.

Sheesh, you guys weren't even particularly harsh on him.

For the record, I liked the paint, but the fender/door card thing with the plates was retarded.
