Give me Miata info!

  1. I want you to explain how having less power makes it corner better. So if the miata had even less power it would corner even better? Or if the S2000 had less power it would corner better? Maybe the next time I take my car out to the track I should wedge a block under the gas pedal to keep it from going down all the way. Less power so it will corner better!!! Seriously, tell me how the cars maximum power output changes its handling dynamics.

    While your at it. Lets talk about the S2000's "superior handling". What are you comparing it to? You've never driven a miata so you obviously have now way of comparing the two. Or just keep talking in circles like an idiot, its pretty funny.
     
  2. I'm going go and remove one of the spark plug wires from my brother's Miata right now! BRB!
     
  3. You make Doug Millikin cry. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  4. Yay they have woken up
     
  5. I think what he means is the Miata can corner at a higher percentage of it's max output, vs something like a Viper which would be going too fast and putting down too much power. So lets say a Miata can take a corner while floored, but the Viper would end up losing traction if it were floored on the same corner. But of course the Viper could still take that corner at the same speed and actual power being put to the ground, but it would be using less of it's power potential than the Miata.

    At least I hope that's what he means, because that's the only power/handling correlation I can come up with that makes sense.

  7. That still has nothing to do with handling.
     
  8. I know, I'm just trying to make sense of what he's trying to say.
     
  9. I do think that may be what he means as well, but that isn't what he said. That's a driver problem, not a car problem.
     
  10. wtf happened to this thread.
     
  11. and quit using 'handles better' and 'faster in the corners' interchangably
     
  12. SERIOUSLY!

    Even the 'merikan understandS!
     
  13. Never used them interchangably

    One leads to the other
     
  14. AHAHAHA! +1
     
  15. +1
     
  16. I thought you were "done" with this?
     
  17. Not necessarily. And omg everyone I know irl sez it's a hairdessurs car!!!!

    Seriously every time you open your trap about Miatas a little more retardation shows.
     
  18. Vipers, C4s, S2000, and Miatas are all shit.
     
  19. Congratulations, you're the stupidest person to post in this thread.
     
  20. The difference being, I think he's kidding.
     
  21. I wouldn't put saying something like that past him.
     
  22. I think DragStrip posted somewhere.
     
  23. you know ur in trouble when the only person that agrees with you is exer
     
  24. Hey, I don't agree with him! I was just trying to see WTF he is trying to say. Apparently what I thought he was trying to say isn't what he is trying to say, or at least I think it's not due to the smilie he used above in response to my post.
     
  25. 1.6 for the purist, as they reakon the handling is better, 1.8 if you wanna go fast
