Default Texas noob

What's going on everyone, the name is Justin.

I am a 19 year old dirt tracker from Texas. I have always grown up around v8s with a lot of horsepower. My dad use to drag race back when I was a kid and I started racing stock cars about 8 years ago.

The stress of racing has really bummed me out over the years, the way people act and drive on dirt tracks takes the fun out of racing. Well I am looking to make a change!

I am ready to give up my 600hp beast for a miata, well not give it up but buy a miata because I have been very interested in one. You could not believe how much crap I have been getting from my friends about buying a "womans car"
and I am sure you all are here to back me up

Unfortunately I do not have a miata at this time. I am looking into getting one soon once I save up some more money. I plan on using it as a daily driver and also a track car that I can turbo and show them corvettes whats up

Glad to be apart of Miata Turbo!

Texas is a big place, be a little more specific about your location.

Wow my car is faster than a 600hp one? Guess I better move to Te-has. Oh and welcome. Get a miata and have a chile cook-off and feed them their parents, then see who's laughing.

jeff_man is correct, come on down i'm sure you'd love this weather, 108* is perfect for cook-offs
