    I test drove one with the intention of buying it to autocross. or perhaps doing the spec miata series. I think they are neat little cars

    DJ took me for a ride in a supercharged one a few weeks ago.
    Fun ride. I've been toying with the idea of getting one for autox.
    He says you can beat them to death and they don't break.

    They are non interference so they pretty much are unbreakable besides bearing failure or something like that

    Sorry guys, just had to



    Lol. Hey I have been beat by plenty of Miatas at the race track. They are neat, I drove a 99 (99's had a LSD) and it was pretty fun, I just couldnt believe how short the gears were.... you could start off in 3rd gear from a stop no problem. 1st gear was like 25 mph, I never seen such short gears in a car.
    93 R/T - Modded, Full Suspension, Full Exhaust, Quaife Diff, Turbo brakes, Alpine/Boston Sound One of 25

    used to have an s2000 and really loved it so my expectations on the miata were a bit high.

    driven a couple miatas since and i was highly dissapointed. honestly felt they were slow, sloppy, and cramped in comparison.

    ive driven a 90, 91, and 99

    97 VR4 12.41 on stock turbos
    91 MR2 13.80 at stock boost
    91 stealth TT with a couple bolt ons
    and a laundry list of others....

    If I fit in one, I'd love to drive one... I can't even fit in a new hardtop Miata, the older ones I sorta fit, but it's way too tight.
