I spent $3000 on my MX-5, and it’s done almost 400,000 km.
It handled like a wet noodle.
Thankfully, through careful research (i.e. bugging everyone on the local Facebook groups), I figured out which parts I needed to make my car suck less.
Then I compiled this into a video, because there aren’t enough MX-5 videos on the internet already.
TL;DR: coilovers + fat front sway + sticky tyres will save your beater racecar from pitching and rolling like a drunk aircraft carrier.
Future plans: Get my 740's windscreen fixed and get the rollcage in the MX-5.
