You ever plan on trading it in for something Rwd like a miata or s2000?

That happens all the time. I can't tell in the car, but I've got a lot of pics of that. Stock suspension and all...

There was a guy there that had a supercharged 3 series. He came up to me after a run and was like, "I was enjoying all the tri-pod action when I was behind you..."

I have, actually. Older S2000s can be had for a decent price.  An S2 would be great.  I just put like 3k into the RSX in the last two years (exhaust, intake, KPro tune), and would probably have to add a few extra grand just to get into an S2.  Not really worth it to me at this point. Maybe if the stars align at some point, but we'll see.

I've also thought about a 350Z.  Nice thing about the RSX is it's very easy on brakes and tires because it's pretty light, so it makes it easier to afford. I'm already pushing it as is, so...  

Plus, when it rains I pwn all. :lol:

Only half ass on the back. I will sell the car some day and want to be able to put it back together...



You should see my buddy's 350Z. Like, everything is out except the wheel, seats, pedals, gauges, and shifter. I'll take a pic of it next time I see it.

Also, Miatas hold their value pretty ridiculous. I was looking at some of the ones that were turbo and they were like $14k. Plus I think convertibles need a roll bar to pass tech inspection.

An Exige S would be like perfect! It's like a Miata, with mid-engine, more power, and lighter.

Now, all I need to do is come up with $70k.

If I ever got a Miata it couldn't be one of the really old ones that only had like 100hp. It's got to have some balls. The turbo ones and the newer ones cost similar to S2000s... which I would much rather have.

Just do an engine swap or get one that had one done. People put Ford 302s in them which are suposedly lighter than the stock miata motor.

There's a guy on my other board that co-owns Flyin Miata. They are the pros when it comes to V8 conversions.

Here's Keith at the Targa Newfoundland. A Miata with an LS3 doing a Targa Rally, can you say awesome?

They are. In an NC (2006+) I have to adjust the seat FORWARD to be in the proper driving position. I'm 6' 220lbs for reference.

I don't know about the NC, but in an NB I still got road wind blasting my forehead, and my knees hit the dash (must also mention that I have a 32-34" inseam). How much bigger is the NC's cabin?
