Going off topic for a minute, this is not always that case. It's taken a year, but my wife is just now coming around to letting me continue buying stuff for the Miata. Mainly because she see's that financialy, it's better for us and our bank account if I keep the Miata. I told her if she wants doesn't want to mod the Miata then I'm going to get another car it'll either be a Mazdaspeed3, BMW 330i ZHP Package, or a Mazdaspeed6 all of which will cost us about $5400 ($0 Down @ $450/month) a year or more for the next 5-6 years to own not including increased insurance premiums. Parts for the Miata, not including engine rebuild or FMII kit would only cost arounf $3200 (coilover, wheels, clutch, etc).Marriage sucks... you have to sell all your toys to get married. LOL!
I agree. Drag racing doesn't take much skill. Yes, some races include a standing start, but if you're drag racing, that's all you get...a standing start...and instead of braking hard to the first turn, in drag racing, you just stop...and well, that's about it...:roll: Must not be a "driver" then... Gotta go straight to get off the starting line. Not many races start mid-drift.
Thanks man. I'm definitely not selling my toys, but probably won't be able to get new ones for a while. I'm lookin forward to it though.Marriage sucks... you have to sell all your toys to get married. LOL!
I definitely think there is a unique skill set for drag racing that I'm not very good at. Slipping the clutch just right on the launch and slamming through the gears without missing a beat. I wish I was better at it.Your right, it doesn't take much skill... In a 16 second car.
" Magazine tests had the car moving from 0 to 60 mph in just under nine seconds, and completing the quarter mile in 16.8 seconds at around 80 mph."
THAT definitely took NO skill.. And only .2 liters more than a Miata.
