    Where in the US. I know there are some decent to good roads in my area, though I don't often have the chance to exploit them, since I usually drive a Buick-which sucks.

    that sounds boring. I would like a clutch, shift knob, and some turns, please.

    I personally love the idea of a powerful car with excellent handling. Stock Miatas have the handling but not the power. Whats wrong with having both?

    Its a bit like saying F1 cars are cr@p because although they can handle they also have way too much power. Basically the same as saying all exotic supercars and all riced out jap pars i.e. Nismo GTR are cr@p because they have way too much power.

    Face it a powerful LS1 powered car with little weight and excellent weight balance is a perfect combo.

    From the owner of the V8 Miata
    http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/showth...ighlight=miata

    Anyway back to my Miata's specs, I run 215-40 ZR16 Kumhos all around (about 8.5 wide) and the overall finished car will weigh about 2190 Lbs...........................Everything fits underhood, so it'll continue to be "dis-respected" as just another "girly-car" until I choose to drop the hammer. Weight balance is essentially the same as a stock Miata, so I'll still be able to turn inside Cobras, Porsches and Beemers, except NOW I'll be able to see them instantly shrink in my rear-view mirror.

    Weight balance is not the same thing as total weight of the car.
    After all, you are still the one in the dark.
