Default I do lots of skids

My name is Cody & I am a Mazda addict. I've been big into Subaru's for the past 5 years & also got into a 95 Miata about 2 years ago. Had the car for a while but ended up trading it. Regretted that. A lot. Over a year later, I got my hands on a decent NB with a lot of bolt ons (full suspension, sways, RB header, wheel & tire setup) & good mileage! I've always wanted to do a turbo Miata so this is a perfect fit. Goals are in the 200hp range. The car itself doesn't need hardly anything. Just some rust repair. We'll see how this goes!
Here's a pic of the NB


Here's some pics of my 95

I don't like him. He tricked me into thinking he was one of those other people that I don't like and he wasn't.

Sorry for lack of skids. And not the ones in my pants. Here's some lame vids to make up for it.

Rain skids

Rally skids

WRX snow skids

Aftermath of burnout

Video titled "a night of hooning". Last night a mustang GT pulled up next to me in my truck at an intersection while I was heading home from work. It had a "Hoonigan" sticker on the back glass. His window was down, and he kept blipping the throttle like he was riding a Harley sportster. I put my window down and said, "Do you even drift bro?" He goes, "What?" I said, "Well do you even?"
Then the light turned green and he BLLLUUUMMMMMMM CRACKLE CRACK CRACK'd away.
Support drifting they said, it'll make you look cool they said.

Welcome.

I'm itching to do some dirt sprints like in your pics. Did you have problems with ride height?

^Not at all. Just make sure you have a skidplate. My stocker got chewed up & I ended up making one out of a stop sign
