      SR20 Miata

      I've been driving the wheels off this thing since we finished it a few weeks ago. 200HP really suits the car well

      Great engine! I rode in an autocross and got to drive a Datsun 510 with a VG33 that seemed to be pushing over 300HP. It was exciting and frightening at the same time. I also got a speeding ticket on...

      Read more about it here MotoIQ - MiataBusa. The little 1.3L pulls much harder than the Miata 1.8L and it sounds glorious at idle or at 10,000RPM

      the Mazda CX-5 is faster around a track than a MX-5. Drive one and see. Great handling and turn-in characteristics. Not as sexy as the Landy though :(

      Lots of replies about Magnesium, but it's a tricky metal that has amazing low weight and strength. However, it is brittle and in the case of many parts (60's wheels included) they have a "service...

      Hey, I"m in Portland area-ish and play with Saabs. DM me your digits so we can meet up and I can have a look at the car. I'll also show you how to change the serpentine belt on the side of the road...

      You're talking about parts and yes, the parts are interchangeable. You didn't mention the revised geometry that the motorsports engineers built in that give the car it's character.

      Desperate times; desperate measures. I hope the new car solves that Miata problem.

      Perhaps I'll be able to swing up your way in my "other" miata this summer. It's getting close to done.

      It's a car and most commuters are single passengers. My wife uses our 92 as a DD and I have as well. Hard to say no to the car when it gets ~28MPG city and you can drive him with the top down.
