Install them backwards, that should negatively affect your rear traction.

This plus crisco on the tires. Front too for increased odds of hitting a tree or telephone pole.

Sorry, I've been in a useless post kind of mood all day. Something about having to train new people at work brings it out in me.

Get yourself a 240sx. Single cam, open diff, and coilovers is all you need. OR if you get lucky you can find a RHD straight from Japan. Its easier to drift.

You haters need to back the **** off.

Doriftoing is a motorsport too, which requires getting the most out of your car, and mad skillz...like car control.

I just asked a simple question about suspension setup, something I thought you Miata **** knew a lot about, and ya'll act all homo and ****.

Screw you mother *******...I'm going back to the Suby scene.

The key is to hit 15,000rpm in 4th gear at 21 psi.

Whats the biggest rear sway bar you can pot in a miata?

SS

Now please tell me you actually have some real advice...


Actually I want to keep from drifting. Anybody else run these?

What works to remove oversteer short of swapping springs?

These will see AutoX action soon. Stiffest I want for the street, and should be good enough to knock some cones over.

Then more negative camber you have the better the handling
