Alright guys,

I've been a die hard civic guy for a while now, had my car for 9 years, helped replenish my testosterone need through my 20's, in the last 3-4 years I haven't done anything on it, just focusing on school. Well finally I was able to do what I felt needed.

Mods include:
1.8L DOHC swap


Bilstien shocks


Adjustable front sway bar


6 speed tranny


relocated the batter to the trunk


shaved a good 300 lbs off it


Bose system installed


LSD added


13lb polished aluminum wheels


Nardi Steering wheel w/air bag


Nardi shift knob


Good year tires


Oil pressure gauge added


Fog lights added


New paint job


RWD Conversion


Shaved 4 years off her age


Installed soft top convertible


Now for the end results :-)

Compensate for what? It's a 220HP car, same wheel base as a civic and a little heavier :what:

If it was a bright orange, 900HP, open headers and a wheelie bar, sure then I'd be compensating.

But just the fact that a guy is showing off a Miata makes me dumbfounded. Especially in Off-Topic, this have gone in Other in Members Rides.

Have a nice life w/your shit attitude,

Where's that ignore button?

It still amazes me how people come to a CIVIC forum talking shit, anyone on this forum who wants to give me shit for driving a "chics" car better look at what club this is. Civics are arguably chic cars as well, if anyone want to criticize me driving a Miata you might as well be talking shit to everyone on this forum!

My shit attitude? I don't have a shit attitude, I tell it how it is. :what:

No, anyone in from CC in SoCal knew I was close to get a CRX before I got a Mustang. I got a Mustang because I forced to. This should have gone in Others in Members Rides, but because this isn't in the right section, I'm going to hassle you.

Yeah man that'd be fun if we had snow lol

one thing I definitely lack w/o AWD is speed, in deep snow i can only go so fast before the tires in the back start spinning @ top speed, think 40mph was the fastest I could go on that track in the vid.
