Well it needs some work yet, and I've got to learn to drive it yet -- but in time I'm sure we'll at least autocross it in the near future. :D

What seats are those? How much did you pay, if you don't mind me asking?

You don't know how to drive stick? Only autocross or will you be putting in some actual track time?

Nope never had my own to drive. Parents nor close family had one while I was driving age either. Couldn't drive Waco's colbalt very smoothly so the Miata gets the beating haha. I took it out when we first brought it home and did pretty damn good. haha Didn't stall it either!! I get the concept, just never had the car to do it. :P

They're no-name seats. :lol: They weigh around 15 pounds each (minus the brackets) and I paid $230 shipped for the pair.

:lol: Oh, believe me, I already looked into doing an LS swap. It's freaking EXPENSIVE. Maybe after the doctors fix my brain, I graduate (again), and I get a good job. Till then, the little 1.6L engine will have to do. :lol:


Besides, I would bet that I'd have a decent chance at catching him on a "low" speed course even with my anemic engine. :D
