Default Taking over SleeperMX5's Car

The deal is done, and I'm the new owner of SleeperMX5's 93 Turbo.

She'll become a track day car joining my wife's 91, and taking over duty from my 06 Porsche Cayman S. She's getting a BossFrog Single Hoop, Sparco seats, 6UL's, FatCat suspension work, FM frame rails, and other upgrades.

The forum has been a great source of information, thanks.

Welcome.

From what I've seen you're the new owner of one nice machine (parked next to some German thing). I have to know how a 255whp Miata compares to my graduation motivation (Cayman S).

Sorry, but you're just going to have to live with it. The Miata will soon inherit the name from the current owner.

Aah, the Buell Blast. All the power and fury of a Nighthawk 250, with the soundtrack of a riding mower.

Lol I just drove my friend's blast, what a weird machine. Could do standing burn outs (literally, I had to stand up off the seat) but at speed the power wasn't there...

Anyways, on yet another side note, my sponsor and I were considering forming a racing team called "blue ball racing". Fitting, since I have no girlfriend and my car's blue.

That being said, welcome
