I always considered hard parking as what people do in the city to get a 14' long car into a 15' long parking space. Pull forward until you hit the car in front, jockey it back until you hit the car in back and so on until you sawed your way into the spot.

Tell ya what dude. Send me an exact spec sheet of your car. Year, color, options, what you have done to it......then I can make an exact replica of your car. And then you'll think i'm cool/have a cool car and we can be friends
Not at all, your plans for your miata are just so far away from what we do and like here that I figured you were from some other forum (which you said you were) to troll on us and call us all idiots. If not, never mind. Just be ready for everyone to call your plans for your MSM idiotic, we like function far far over form here, seems like your slightly more in the other direction.

If you made a copy of my car I'd call you an idiot, why would anyone want to copy a ghetto racer. I'm often embaressed to drive my car in public, must look like I can't drive stick with my on/off clutch, not to mention 1200rpm idle that rattles my teeth off.

I miss my e30 and it's 10 foot turning radius.

The miata turning radius isn't half bad... some times I feel like it's just pivoting on the rear wheels.

You do realize that changing ride height also changes your alignment and corner weights, right?

You're going to find that MT.net is mostly made up of people who value function over form... and aren't too tolerant of "hard parkers".

Pretty car though... and welcome to MT.net

Know what? I had to google hard parking to know what it was. Guess I am not that cool. I thought hard parking was grabbing your butt buddies boner while attempting to parallel park your doucher car riding on bump stops. But it is something just as gay, either way, I see why i wasn't too familiar with it.

Edit: I think i found a pic of you and your previous whip... yo. Hardparking is dope. Where can i get 0mm offset wheels again? Oh wait... isn't there some bot here that sells those?
