in all honesty, I think thats one of the best looking rides with stockies. Unless you just want rims, I'd keep those.

Just a video showing off popping you get with the Goodwin Header, Midpipe, "Q" muffler and no baffles.

Goodwin is the equivalent to Comptech.

Its cold out so the sound is amplified.

It looks ok. First night I was iffy, but it has grown on me a bit. I dont have any pics of it yet with the top up.

It'd obviously look better if I had black seats and a black top, but the top is down 24/7 in the summer. Im probably going to invest in some nice black seat covers for the summer anyway, leather was a mistake.

Woah. Does he run a more aggressive setup for the track? The flare seems like a bit much for what hes running, or maybe its the angle.

Oh god yes....

18x10s with 295s on all four corners. Unheard of wide for us.

This is a pic from a couple of seasons ago with tiny 18x9.5s with 275s.

Knowing you, you'd raise the Miata/MX5, so you wouldnt even have to roll the fenders

Of course, I would raise a little to put some 22 spinners on it.
