I just can't help thinking of a brake bias **** with, instead of FRONT <---> BACK printed on it, it says MOAR GRIP <---> LESS GRIP

I'm sure that we do indeed have plenty of bottoms around here, but I don't think anyone is denying that sliding the tail around can indeed be a hoot. At the same time, we acknowledge that it's not generally the fastest way around a track. Thus, Formula-Douche is not racing, it's performance art.

Drifting has about as much in common with racing as figure-skating does with bobsledding. They take place on the same surface and use a fundamentally comparable technology to interface with the ground, but only two of these are judged objectively on directly-measurable criteria (eg, speed and time), while the other two are judged principally on the shininess of the pants worn by the performers and how much of a boner the judges receive.

What happens to a once stock 16,000 mile MSM; when the owner has too much ego and not enough skill. Thanks clubroadster.

Assuming the car needs ONLY a door (no frame damage), my main beef was the flares.

If MiataTurbo.net wants to sponsor a N/A autox car that operates on a $100 a year budget, let me know.

I actually do pretty much this every winter, and I love it.
Except its not a track, but a bunch of regular roads that the local retards go to to hone their "dor1fto" skillz. Their cars fail so hard they have to wait for rain to break the tires loose, and all are too broke to afford a track session.
At least 1 of them will eat the curb a night, and on the good nights you'll see someone total their car.

Its fun
