I like how the miata daisys are the only subtle clue to immense amount of work done to the car. Completely awesome!

I was hoping the untrained eye would think they were minilites or panasports.

The untrained eye probably would...but you're on a site full of miata nuts. Seriously cool car though.

Very cool site -- the link for the rear suspension though is just saying "Adobe Golive 5" and no info . . . something amiss?

Nice, at first glance they do look like minilites. They toy motor looks like a tight fit

Sorry about the rear suspension page. I made the webpage and found that I'd lost all pictures of the rear except the thumbnail. I couldn't bear to take it back apart to get photos. I have a redesign that'll take a few months (I've said that for a year or so now). The motor itself isn't a tight fit, it's everything around it! I'm in the middle of re-routing the cooling system so it's cleaner. The oil filter is now on the drivers side fender, and it's much more sanitary. I'll finish that part up along with the third generation front suspension and post some new pictures in the next month.

Should I go turbo? I've contemplated over the last three years, but it's going to be a monumental task (MSEFI on ITB's with Turbo= PITA). The body won't accept much more than 185 section width tires (maybe 195's to get some RT-615's). I'm not sure if the cooling system will hold up to the extra power, etc. But it would be berkleying sweet to have 250 +/- hp to put down.
