      It's not for me, but I can dig it. Seems like a pain in the ass though.

      Not what I'd do with a Miata, but looks cool. I just don't like how the popularity for these has exploded recently raising the prices.

      Cool video - nicely done!

      Hope you have good brake lights so someone doesn't roothog you when you're swerving a cigarette butt in the road.

      With as often I am in and out of my house, if I had that car, I would NEVER want to move it, once it was parked. That has to be a major pain.

      Sounds nice though.

      You can't be serious about the Miata. You would have to be the most patient person on earth.

      No, at that ride height the car is not even usable on the street. "More than just show" would be 3" higher than that. And no, airbags are not usable on a track in a Miata, unless you like the idea of random horrible spring rates and ruined handling.

      Any toolbag can spend $400 and bolt in a Hard Dog rollbar for their hard-parking ruined Miata.

      Pretty much. I never understand slammed Miatas. You basically took a car, designed for one thing: good handling, and took away the one thing that makes it really great. So stupid.

      QFT. If it isn't the ride height, the rear camber should instantly throw your idea about it being a performer. That much negative camber leaves a fraction of a contact patch.

      I really don't care for the car, way too low for my taste/roads/driving style but it does sound good. Hard to believe that's a tiny MX5 motor making that noise.

      Drifting them. All the camber and the lightweight makes it easy to slide while being economical (in the drifting world) on tyres.

      Are you really from PA?
      If so, what region?
