Default Air ride on a miata?

Ok so I live in new England the worst roads in the USA. I wanna lower my miata but like my Jett's I'm sick of scraping ever pebble. I was researching on bagged miatas and literally nothing came up. So I thought maybe I'd piece together a bag over coil setup over the winter. Does anyone know if it's ever been done before?

You're not off to a good start Thomas. Review what I told you in your meet and greet thread. Blanket party is forming.

Also, before you change your suspension height, research and learn about roll center and how the relationship between roll center and center of gravity can affect handling.

This ain't no Jetta.

I love how he tries to make it sound like he's not a ricer for wanting to do this.
You don't wanna scrape? Don't slam your ****.
You wanna slam your ****? Prepare to scrape.

PRACTICALITY? Really? Airbags for practicality? Are you retarded?

This is the furthest thing from a VW, and we hate and disrespect 99% of VW owners as they are the scum of the automotive world. They literally started just about EVERY stupid/faggy/retarded trend there is. I wish the earth would open up and just swallow them all whole.

So, help us to understand why you want to install an airbag suspension on your car.

Boost your car. That is what this forum is about. Making Miata's better. Not ******* them up with bags. Not slamming them. Why the **** did you post after the link to CR? Are you retarded?

Because I live in RI and the roads around me are awful. I work in providence 4 nights a week and the roads might as well be a woop section. I want to be able to air up driving past those roads and not have to damage anything underneath my car.

He's either trolling or is legitimately too stupid to realize how retarded his ideas are.
I also love how he keeps avoiding the question of : "why do you want to slam your car?"

I am boosting my car. But I'm Pretty sure this is the suspension thread that I posted in an I correct? And I'm also pretty sure that this forum is about helping out other miata drivers not being a complete dick

It is kind of like the little queer that tries to fit in with the rough and tumble cowboys and football players. Don't be that little queer.
