    Hi-Metal R

    Sick! Wow, bravo! This is the sickest thing I've seen today. So cool man!
  3. I am going to third this.
  4. Hey Sqidd, sorry about the delayed replay. I've been super busy. I own the most hated Miata of the all: The NC Miata. It is basically a shortened and lightened RX-8, and therefor it is a bit heavier than its prior iterations. Those wheel arches are stock, and that roof comes down in 13 seconds or so, using electricity. I just got her back actually, and now she has a 8.4 lb lightweight flywheel, and stage one clutch. I thought it already had a lightened flywheel, but I was wrong. So when the clutch went, I upgraded/replaced the entire clutch system. I never thought I would own a Miata, as they are not really powerful, but after having two modified WRX[s] I settled for this little house fly of a car. Telepathic and "chuckable" are some of the reasons I love this car. Light wheels, lugnuts, and lighter MisterR coilover suspension made it ever more fun. This is the first time I've driven a car with a lightened flywheel and I absolutely love it. I go on drives to no where for no reason, just for fun. Don't get me wrong, I love power, but this car is fun at any speed.

    Quadruple this.
  6. You are in a roll! So much goodness! Ha ha Godzilla fighting a GPB, hilarious. I like your car collection too! Great acquisitions everyone!
  7. Wow, I had no idea! I did have a few of those GPK cards back in the day, but I never saw these before. Not that I recall anyhow.
  8. It is a power retractable roof, and the wheel arches are stock. Yes, I love the way it drives, but it is a visceral experience. You basically feel everything on the road. I really love this lil' thing. Telepathic is a good way to describe it. I've had power and speed for over 12 years, and now I finally decided to go the fun way, rather than the not to 60 way. The thing for me is a fast car is fun driven fast, but these lil Mx-5 are fun all the time. It is not for everyone, but I truly enjoy it. Honestly it is a useless a car in every other sense, as it is only intended to be driven. This is the GT trim, so it has LSD, 6 speed MT, leather, heated seats, Xenon headlamps, and it is my daily driver. I know it might add a little weight, but I really wanted these items. Same here, it took me years to go for a less powerful engine, but I am so glad I finally did it. I did install Mister R coilovers, so the ride height is slightly lower than stock. I did drive an NB in my research process, but I have to say, even when this NC2 mk3.2 is the fattest of them all, it is my favorite. I am not entirely sure, but I believe the only previous owner installed a lightened flywheel. It revs so fast, it is crazy. The NC2 is actually a shortened and lightened RX-8 chasis, but it is not that much heavier than previous iterations. I got Flying Miata Kogeki wheels at 15.6lb and lightened lugnuts, and it really feels amazing in any situation. I am not going to super or turbocharge it. The mission is to follow the Lotus philosophy: "add lightness". I may get a lighter exhaust, and lighter 2 piece rotors later on. This car won't win you any drag races, but it is fun from the moment you start it to the moment you park it. I've had 2 modified WRX[s] and loved them, but I adore this little car. Have you posted pics of your SS? I can't rememeber.
