      you have nice car aesthetically. In reality this is just another rich kid who can afford to do retarded things, spent so much money to drive it like your 80. How much money can u spend to degrade, your car probably would have driven better with 20''s

      What is the point of a roll cage in a car that can only go 5mph?

      mine isnt on bags anyway, its static. and i really dont care if people say i ruined it. its a slow car. i would rather scrape dirt than act like i drive a race car.

      they really arent THAT great of a car. I love my miata. but its nothing to complain over if someone slams one because they are the price of a civic and just as fast.

      I love how I can hit a speed hump head-on at speed.

      I hate having to slow down for dumbasses like you to crab walk over a McDonald's straw.

      Enjoy your broken car

      Nice Miata, I love it. Did you get a skidplate for it? A skidplate makes super slammed cars surprisingly daily-able. I had one on my S13 that I DD'd for 4 years, and despite being low enough to collect Bots Dots and road surface reflectors with it, I never had any problems with breaking anything. Nice Work!

      Thanks man. I raised the motor and installed frame rail guards. If i added a skit plate it might scrape too much. My main concern was oil pan and frame rails because those were the lowest. and slammed s13
