What i find "inane" is how such a big man can fit into that car!
(nice car though)

What is more 'inane' is why JohnK owns a Miata!!
Really John? A Miata?

Ah i shouldn't make fun.
I drive a Corolla. Bent on saving the world by using less gas.
Next month, hybrid.

Yeah, chess; maybe a little more gas, but a lot more fun!

Congrats on the car, Ben! Hey, don't put too much into the midlife crisis thing. We all have the right to get things that make us happy.

And, John, I recently joined your Miata club. Yeah, it's a whole lotta fun!

My uncle has a Miata, I was chasing him around unknown (by me) streets in my '8. Once we got to our destination he said, "you really took that round-about at speed." I didn't know we went through one, but I did remember a piece of road that I thought was totally insane because I was like, "right!, left!, right!" off camber, in about 25 feet at 50 Mph, but it was where I able to catch up to him.

I have the Racing Beat intake and exhaust. I love the way they sound. Not like a fart can, but deep and throaty. Highly recommended.

One of my 'most fun in a car' moments came in England going through roundabouts in a BMW 3 series driven by a guy who raced motorcycles as a hobby.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone.

Ya at some point I'm definitely going to mod this thing. I'm not a fan of the fart can either. I'll probably start with intake. I did find some oil on the air filter. I read on rx8forums that installing a catch can should fix that.

Do you have any pics of your mods?

The Racing Beat stuff, you'd never know it wasn't stock without really looking.

I do have carbon fiber fenders on the front, as I bought it crashed, and needed to replace the passenger side one. Turns out the carbon fiber isn't much lighter than the factory aluminum ones (like a pound per side). Does look cool though.

My old neighbor in LA has one of the last RX7's. He has played with the turbo and induction system and EMS so much its not funny. He's currently running about 470 HP.

I just got one of these:



Yes, in that color, too! Loads of fun to drive on the nice winding roads of GA.
