    Well, today in the morning i had to change the spot for the miata from one side of the street to the other (Street cleaning day)

    And i decided fuck it.. instead of just changing it i'll fuck around a little bit

    Man, this thing is slow as shit.. but has a shitload of handling!! i was throwing 180's left and right and i gotta say... this thing is more fun to drive than the Mustang... well.. besides the fact that it has no torque... but a 408w can fix that O0

    Anyone on here ever driven one or own one? i have to say.. I AM IMPRESSED!

    i personally haven't driven one but my best friend's brother bought one for road racing and it is sweet. Its pretty much all stock except for a supercharger. That ****** can pull when it hits boost. We went up to the track one day and he took it up for shits and giggles and managed a 14.2 outta that thing. It was awesome.

    Found the old link to them...they're called Monster Miata's. http://autospeed.drive.com.au/cms/A_0824/article.html

    Here's a quick quote about their stage 1 platform with only 6psi......

    "Besides better exterior looks, the Mega-Monster Miata has a quiet and calm idle, but once you mash your foot down on the throttle, the 1160kg Miata turns into an exploding road rocket accelerating from a standstill to 60 mph (97 km/h) in only 3.9 seconds, covering the quarter mile in only 12.2 seconds at 118 mph and topping out at 175 mph (282 km/h), thereby burying the stock 140 mph speedo! On the back roads driving with John, the Mega-Monster Miata easily handled the tightest turns at high-speed as the Miata can now pull over .98g's on the skidpad."

    The guys I met had the stage 2,and one had the stage 3......450whp and 11.20's on street tires in stock form :eek:
    Most people never knew what hit them.lol

    Haha.. i'll take pics in the morning O0

    She's not stock suspension wise, it's got coilovers, swaybars, strut tower bar, roll bar and panasport racing wheels O0.. i dont know what's exactly on there because it was my buddies and i bought it from him for more than what it's worth to help out his family because he went to jail

    Also 94, that's fuckin sick!!!!!!!

    I'm probably gonna end up getting a greddy headgasket, porting the heads, getting a valve job, changing stem seals (she burns oil), putting a 88 turbo rx7 MAF and adding a custom made turbo kit with an external wastegate, hoping to get like 260 horsepower out of it

    Miatas own the auto X tracks....you can find them cheap and build a real mean corner carver...add a turbo and make guys in 60k-100k cars look stupid.
