My little daily mx5. Very slammed, banded steels, knuckles ect ect
Bought it cheap with a smashed sump and knackered engine. All i have done to it is fitted bucket seat and steering wheel, my banded steels, new engine, hydro wand (needs plumbing in), laguna splitter and i wound on maximum camber and lowered the front down a touch more.
Got given this wing but havent had the courage too fit it. it looks gay as fuck but i quite like it
I recently made some knuckles for it but they need fitting, maybe fitted this afternoon
No idea how long ill keep it or how much ill do too it. my fourdoor is getting close too being ready and iam buying another rwd nissan soon and i still have my micra
when i fitted the new engine i raised it up by 10mm now it heavily protected by the steering rack
buddy club civic coilies and some scrubbing

buddy club front coilies
ebay rear coilies
nice motor bro! where in the country are you?
niice miata buddy!I love the steelies!
good work dude i like the spoiler as well but i wouldnt be brave enough to rock it on the car lol
Gotta love a low mx5
Cant beat a mx5 on banded steels may go that route when I decide to change my wheels again lovely looking car btw
looks mint mate but please dont fit the spoiler lol
If you fit the wing, It has to be higher than the car, and over the back of the car, otherwise itll be a 100% fail. Fit it.
Like mine WIN lol

oh and looks like you tried to avoid the dog and hit the tree in your early pics lol (wife noticed and said to say lol)
where'd you get the steelies from?
both completed knuckles checked out in the jig
started too make some clearance but really need to remove the arms and do it properly
7mm rack spacers
2-3mm travel left to go
caliper hits shock body, thisll be a tougher problem to over come
and of course i have tested it I want to get a few more days playing though before i start talking about my opinion of them
Cant decide whether to add a turbo to this car, i already have loads of parts. I have the astra ic, megasquirt ms2 v3 and wideband lambda as can be seen in the pics.
I also have 2 x subaru wrx td04l turbos. So i could use one of them. I would need help fitting and setting up the megasquirt and i would also need to make an exhaust manifold and down pipe.
I wasnt really that into skidding this cars, but since fitting the knuckles yesterday i have for some reason fallen in love with it

Mx5s are really retarded fun to skid

This car is no longer being used but i hope to have another one very soon.
as soon as i get one ill be making some more aggressive knuckles, i really really like the knuckles i have already made for this grey roadster and i cant help but think about trying to some more aggressive ones out.
I hated drifting the mx5 before the knuckles but as soon as i fitted them the car felt like it drifted much much better and iam guessing thats down to the trailing wheel scrubbing less and not slowing down the car
