Default noob miata drifter

Ok so I have lurked for a few months while I slowly built my Miata.

I knew nothing about them when I bought mine. Was spur of the moment. Wanted to get into drifting and didn't want a 240. Bought my 1993 for 1100 at 247k miles.

So far I've done quite a bit. Wont list everything but I did put a 1.8 torsion rear end in it. Still have the 1.6 in it atm. Have a 1.8 sitting in my garage that I cant decide what to do with. Put it in now, or build it while its out and hope the 1.6 lasts till its built.

Anyways I just wanted to introduce myself. My names frank. And ill continue lurking till I think I can make myself not sound stupid when i ask a question.

Also, I live in Oklahoma and I'm a full time student, and full time dad.

We don't take kindly to your type around here...


I'll be nice

Build the 1.8 while it's out. Drift the hell out of your stock 1.6L till it pops.

Why not start with a car that's already been wrecked?

Edit: ^ perfect post.

Do something productive with your life, like something other than destroying otherwise good cars that could be driven NOT into walls.

Well actually I was 13 when I had my kids, secondly the car was in crap condition when I bought it for 1100, and I happen to like the wheels. Lol. And third of all where I drift there are no walls. Just alot of cones and open lot. And I built my car to the way id like it, I didn't take your opinions into consideration. But I posted here to introduce myself, and in all fun and games, I'm here to learn more about the Miata and turbo. So ridicule my car all you want, as long as I learn something I'm not bugged.
