    Absolutely beautiful OKSubaru!!! I totally dig it!!! and uke, it could very easily be a modified Greddy kit, the stock bottom end will take 15psi nicely when tuned right. Might even be a flyin miata kit.. you should ask him sometime for a ride

    ^Infinity to the mentality that if a car is not the fastast evAr in a straight line it is crappy and slow.

    Miata is an awesome car, the Mazdaspeed Miata will be a REALLY REALLY awesome car!!!!

    the car is on FM springs with Koni adjustable struts. The roll bar is a Hard Dog Duece.(actual roll bar, not just pretty to look at) turbo this summer.

    I absolutely loved my RS, but after driving a couple of miatas and S2000's i got bitten by the RWD roadster bug really bad.

    Maybe someday i can own a suby and a miata...

    I read an article that reviewed the handling of several of the world's top sports cars and the miata won out! It was specifically referred to as superior to the Porsche GT3 in handling. Unbelievable.
    Also the last generation of miatas wran a 323 engine which also came in a turbo version - great motor to go FI with. When paired with RWD on such a fine handling chassis I have to give kudos to mazda.

    Wow... an article said a miata outhandled a GT3... that takes huge balls.

    Sorry, but i have to say thats impossible IMHO.

    Miata= economy sports car.
    GT3 = worldclass supercar.
    All show and no go . . .
    Your car looks fast, but why's it so slo.

    That may be true... at high speeds on one of the many high speed tracks, but on a more technical track.. id take the Miata... its more nimble and agile for the slower speed corners.

    Yea miatas are wicked in tight corners, I can't lose my dad when we go down the switchbacks and I have more than twice his power lol. He is right on my ass and could probably pass me I dunno though. I have driven it as well and those things corner like crazy. I have had a couple hondas try to stay in front of me and they are all cutting into the other lane and crap and im barely trying, while staying in my own lane. The thing has turn in like an evo. I still prefer my car for every day driving because I can always just crank the wheel if I want to take a corner fast *scccreeeeeeeech*

    Miata is fun to drive... it lacks power that my WRX has, but it shines in handling~
