Bought a miata

Hey guys I sold my lude and bought a miata, hate to say it but the miata kicks the preludes butt in handling. I just got tired of getting smoked by miatas whenever i autocrossed, if you cant beat them join them lol. Im gonna miss my lude, i couldnt hardly sleep the night i sold it lol. I guess im done with preludes, for now anyways. Thanks for all the help and advice you all have given me

Re: Bought a miata

haha I sold my miata for the lude. I always felt self conscious in it. It handle great, but had absolutely no power, definitely a momentum car in the turns. I had a 1.6 though, the 1.8 have more power. What year did you get? I use to autox my stock 92 in e stock. konis+front swaybar+ hoosiers and basically you have a nationally competitive car.

Re: Bought a miata

I'm considering getting a 94' with the 1.6L. 112k on the body and 86k on the motor. Could get a deal from a family friend. Since we're talking about Miata's, anything I should look out for?

Re: Bought a miata

Only the 90-93 had the 1.6, 94's had the 1.8, unless the 1.6 was swapped in. You said 86k was on the motor? These engines are bullet proof. Main thing to look for is rust on the rocker panels; water gets trapped there. Next check out the top. Make sure there's no leaks or rips. When you start the car listen for a hydraulic lifter tap. It's very common on miatas and not really that big of a deal, but you can use it as a bargaining tool.

The motor was swapped in. And I doubt I can use the HLT as a bargaining tool, the seller is my girlfriend's cousin, and he's a Miata guy so he knows his ****. haha

Re: Bought a miata

Its a 1999 with only 67000 miles on it, I only paid 4200 for it what do u think?, I thought it was a good deal, it does have rust ont the rocker panels like you said. It seems pretty peppy not as much as the lude but it doesnt bother me too bad. I cant figure out how to post the pictures on here, how do u do it?

Re: Bought a miata

That's a great deal. You can always buy replacement panals that weld right on. I remember I fixed mine with a fiber glass resin kit and bondo. The 99 sport package is considered to be the best miata. What trim is it? I wanna see come pics. Man, I miss my miata.

you should definately keep an eye out for the residual vagina that is most likely left in the car

A miata would rape a prelude around anything with turns. It's the definition of a sports car.

50/50 weight distribution and RWD gets my dick hard. Sub-100 WHP numbers deflate my hard dick. I'm torn. lol

Re: Bought a miata

The 1.8 miata can pull a low 15 sec quarter mile with just bolt ons. I've pulled a 2.2 60ft time with my 1.6 miata and a 15.8 sec quarter mile; the car just had a drop in filter. They aren't as slow as you think. Plus the 1.6 miata loves boost. It's pretty much the same engine as the 323 gtx. You can pretty much get 220whp easily, which is a lot for a car that weighs 2100lbs

Re: Bought a miata

220whp in a 2100lb car is the reason I'm torn between an H22 swapped Civic and a boosted miata. Although I've been told that the 1.8L is better for boost...so I dunno. haha

I think you need to look up that definition again...... and my lude isn't stock so lets hit the twistys, then we can hit the quarter mile and average out the results.



p.s. see how many panties you can catch in your miata vs. a prelude, and I ain't talkin' boxershorts clay aiken.

Re: Bought a miata

HAHAHA all I know is that my girlfriend loved putting the top town. Can't do that in a prelude . The thing is the handling limit is much higher on a rwd than a fwd. There is no way a fully modified prelude would even remotely come close to handling like a fully modded miata. My definition of a sports car is spon on. A convertible rwd car with a manual transmission and an lsd sounds like a sports car to me. Coming from a miata to a prelude, I am on your side. No need to fight, but facts are facts.
