Default ITT, we takes turns guessing why Emilio has no more use for Crusher.

The only thing that makes sense is that he has something better in mind, or something different. As Miatas go, what could be better than Crusher?

If it's a new platform, my guess is either FRS or maybe BMW (1/3 series?)

+3 for FRS/BRZ
-He's done a lot of talking-up of that chassis.

Im sure the C6 Z06 market could use a 6ul-esque wheel option.

Im sure he'll get a kick reading this thread. The miata community will go as Emilio goes.

I'm guessing this is more of a "business decision" than a "I've got an emotional attachment to Crusher" type situation.

I'd like to see SuperMiata become a nation-wide, low-buck series of events.
