PICS on PAGE 2
My buddy just finished putting together his monster miata. It is a ~92 miata with a built ford 5.0 engine with all the typical bolt ons. Not currently tuned, but estimated to put out somewhere in the vicinity of 350 rwhp... all this in a small 2400lb car.
Let me tell you, it is the meanest sounding miata you will have ever heard.
Anyway, we lined up at a light. I completely botched my launch but got it back together quickly and reeled him right back in. I shifted late into second but still hung with him (yea for awd), but by the time I hit third, he passed me like I was standing still. In third gear he put about 3 cars on me, then it just got worse and worse, so we stopped.
Needless to say, with a better launch and better driving I might have had the lead from 1st to the very beginning of third, but after that it is no contest. He is heading to cecil this friday so I hope to go with him, and once he is tuned and installs his 100 shot of nitrous I dont know if anything in the area will be able to hang with him.
