Re: Oh Geez

So....If we see a set of TruckNuts hanging from the XJ, they are actually your biological testicals? No way you can keep them, and drive that car.....unless you do the Monster!

Miatas are gay but not even close to THE gayest car out there

Drop top Mini's and new gen Beetles take the cake.

Too much weight, you'll ruin the handling. Besides, it's a Mazda and as such needs a rotary.

Re: Oh Geez

Its funny but a LS1 is only 100-150 LBS more and it actually evens out the car and gives it a nice 50/50 split. Monster Miatas are somewhat common.

I powerwashed the motor and used some engine cleaner stuff and I spent the last hour going through eletrical conections and drying the plug holes because it was sputtering and stuff due to water. Finally pulls hard. cleaned the filter and stuff and it wistles and performs much better than ever. 0-60 is super nice despite my crappy shifts. getting better though!

Re: Oh Geez

Kinda... I cant really. With the supercharger and the pressure it jumps the RPMs after you jam the clutch even if your foot isnt on it, so it pretty much shifts like that anyways.
Every person I have given a ride to says they want one... Its funny the people go from that is the Gheyest tiny girl car - oh my god oh my god slow down slow down!!! in like 2 seconds.
