    Hey guys,

    Anyone got any videos of N/A MX5s having the balls skidded off them? On board, trackside, mad streeto, whatever, just cool videos of people smashing the shit out of slow mx5s. Any videos I find are of forced induction or people pussyfooting a slipwheel on a shitty wet mini roundabout.

    Hello man,
    Check on youtube: rosmaledet (yt channel)
    You'll find many many videos of "Mengo", a teammate and proba ly one of the best mx5 drifter around. Or search "autoporto sassuolo dift", "mengo drift".. have fun!

    A couple of me in my old NA 1.8 uk spec





    I'm sure one day I'll end up owning another one, sooo much fun for pennies compared to big unreliable nissans!

    How much power does a standard NA push out?

    Next to fuck all. 110 or so. At least two of mine have been deffo less, current one I doubt is even 100 it's that bad lol.
    But it's not about power.

    He's not N/A, but hasn't got mega power still, and Dennis drives his MX5 properly. Flat to the mat flicking it in at the top of 4th...

    What surprised me is that they do skid well, just need a lot of persuasion!

    Heres my effort. 2nd drift day so not fantastic but I think theres a few decent skids in there. Standard 1.8, Torsen, no lock mods. all 2nd gear entries were before I realised I needed to be in 3rd and flat out for the big corner.

    Woops, sat down to watch 5 minutes of the mx5 part and ended up watching the whole thing...

    The race with the M5 at Sugo was pretty sweet
