both of which are equally important.

i could easily buy a stock, used 350z and have it function amazingly.

however i choose to own older cars.. which function well without a doubt if taken care of properly, but with the money saved that i could have used to get a newer car? i feel that with that money, your car DESERVES to be unique and look equally as good as it functions. im not a huge fan of old, bone stock cars.

btw, MAX low may have been an exaageration, my cars are all tastefully low.

When you enter miataTURBO.net and speak of drifting a stock car, you can't expect to be welcomed like a hero.
The URL should speak for it self..
It is a dedicated forum, and differs from miata.net and clubroadster because of it.

The pictured wheels are made by Emilio at 949racing.com, and are made for the Miata, giving you the biggest wheels possible inside the fenders without modifications. It lets you run 225 slicks legally.

The offset isn't fatlace, so you'll probably not end up there, but the weight is amazing.
With a bit of spacing they might fit your needs though..

Since you're drifting with a stock car, I assume you'll be running with a massive negative camber, so you can easily run with much lower offsets.

what do you all think, sound like itll be a rowdy drift car?

240s feel rickety to me, i dont know how to explain it. theres a lot of body flex i feel like miatas dont experience.

my plan is to have some super light wheels, welded diff, coilovers at MAX low; hopefully itll be a bad *** street car.
your 240's probably feel rickety because you've turned them to **** the same way you plan on doing to the miata. As soon as you weld your diff and go coilovers at MAX low, you're going to immediately see the miata as a piece of **** - it won't turn at slow speeds, it wont turn at fast speeds, it simply wont turn. Combine the fact that it wont turn with the fact that you're going to feel like your teeth are mounted to an air chisel everytime you hit a bump, and it wont be "bad ***" - it will simply be "***".

Oh, and IBTL, because the OP is only open to suggestions that he wants to hear, and he didn't read/comply with the stickies.

my 240s all felt shitty because i had cheap old coilovers, old worn bushings, etc.

wdf do you mean it wont turn? do you mean itll slide, instead of turn? because thats what im looking for.

i KNOW what it feels like to drive a car with coilovers, you dont need to tell me how itll feel on my teeth. thanks .

This site is dedicated to turbo miata's. You've no plans to boost.
This site is all about function>form. You want to slam your car and weld the diff.
This site hates drifting (aka buttsecksing) and doesn't recognize it as any type of motorsport, and you're looking to do just that.

You're more than welcome to stay, but I highly doubt you will. You'll see why very soon. Just a matter of time.

Its not that we don't like you. Its that you stand for everything we hate.

**edit: on the other hand, if you can take harrassment and don't let anything get to you, this place is a wealth of info should you happen to change your mind about drifting retardation and actually make your car fast.

You may be the best drifter the world has ever seen (Which you're not), but you're still a retard. Go to clubroadster.net and you will be welcomed like a hero.

See, here at MT.net, we love functionality as well as looks. We don't like one or the other. By slamming a car (Lowest it'll go), you're eliminating the functionality. It'll still work, but not nearly as well as it could; you're needlessly sacrificing practicality for style. You won't find many supporters of that here - you'll find plenty of supporters of that over on CR.net.

If you're interested in turbo-ing your car at some point, I recommend coming back here, but not flaunting your "MAX low". There are respected people here with slammed cars, but they are respected because they acknowledge that it is detrimental and just for looks, and they mostly keep it to themselves. However, you seem to have no intention of turboing it. You came here posting plans that are the epitome of CR.net, and the opposite of what we're about here.

In conclusion: Go away unless you're going to discuss turboing your car.

EDIT: **** you 18psi, you beat me to it.

a proper setup drift car should be able to pull respectable grip lap times with minor changes.

Dude, seriously......there is a search button at the top right of your screen. "use it" and if you spent the time to read the "my tube front drifter" instead of treating it like a picture book you probably would have learned a thing or two and save us the headache of dealing with your lazyass.

I dont know a whole lot about drifting but i can sure say that the guy that made the thread mentioned above knows a hell of alot more than you do and thats why his car isnt scrapping his subframes on the ground.

If you were looking to do things the wrong way, halfass and take nothing but short cuts that will lead you no where , you should have steered clear of this amazing place and stick to POS 240s.

To be completely honest, I couldnt finish reading any of your post. Thats how annoyed I was getting and truthfully I dont know why your still here. I dont get annoyed easily so saying your annoying the **** out of me is saying something (your lucky your *** hasnt been banned yet) so use the grace that has been givin to you and do your homework, then try to start a decent thread with what you plan to do!

I have alot of respect for the some of the guys on here that are producing cars to compete in drifting compotitions. They are putting alot of hard work and R&D into their builds. So far I have zero respect for you and what your trying to do....

k, Im done....












wait!

One more thing, I feel very sad for whatever miata gets to be your victim. That car could of had true potential in someones hands other than yours....

K, now Im done....

No don't go to clubroadster...

roadsterdrift has a lot more discussion and knowledge on making a miata 'fuctional' for drifting.

CR will tell you how to make your car fuctional to hard park.



Just saying....

wdf do you mean it wont turn? do you mean itll slide, instead of turn? because thats what im looking for. do you plan on sliding to the grocery store? do you plan on sliding to your friends house? do you plan on sliding to high school in the morning? tell us how that works out as a "bad ***" street car. The short wheelbase of the miata means that you're going to put WAY MORE effort into turning the car in all circumstances as compared with your 240.

fixed: i KNOW what it feels like to drive a car with bottomed out coilovers, you dont need to tell me how itll feel on my teeth. thanks . The lightness of the miata means that every bump in every road is going to be far more exaggerated than what you would experience in the 240 with its higher inertia.
