Slap on some bald tires and I'll think you'll slide alright. You have a nice car and this other guy on here just decided to buy a Miata! So i'm sure you'll be seeing a reply from him. Good luck and welcome. :)

thank you. I have a set of beaterz, 14 in really lightweight BBS wheels from a old Toyota with really shiity Goodyears... i have a feeling if i slap them on the back i should be goo to go.

yep, well mine is 92 model....stock, stock, and stock. (for now)

anyway, it's got the factory 14's with crappy 185/60/14 generics on it....it slides farily easy. been toying around a litte with it, and it'll kick out not to hard. and that's with a clutch that's slipping/chattering here and there. so i need a new clutch to get it to hook up right. i'm really impressed w/ the car (although i think it's a little underpowered). also, my suspension is major squishy...so new springs and shock on the way too. gald to see some others on here w/ a roadster too.
