Default Its about time to de-noob myself!

Hey there and greetings from snowy Tallinn, Estonia!

Ive been reading and searching the forum for about a year, and its been a great help!
So, Im building 1994 1.8 Eunos Roadster to race at Time Attack. I used to drive time attack with a ST205 Celica WRC, but got tired of the 4wd and weight. Thats when I decided things have to change, and I got myself a miata!

It had tein suspension, torsen lsd and so on for drift use, which caused its harsh exterior. I fell in love immediately. Got it home, and broke to pieces.


Im from Finland and thats where the car is also, but Im studying business in Estonia, so its going to be a bit longer project because of school, both timewise and moneywise.

and then, some pics for you:

Right after I bought her


Current state



and in case someone cares, here is the old car I raced



I'll start a project thread, as soon as I have time to do some more for the car..

Im going to do Time Attack, but the car was used in its previous life in UK as a drifter. Hence the battlescars in the bumpers and skirts!

That's my favourite bumper right there! You aren't by any chance willing to part with it are you?
I'd like to welcome you, but I'm just a noob aswell so I'll just say hey :P.
