SOLSTICE makes MAZDA MX-5 look sick in Japanese tests

Watch this video. Look at how much better the Kappa performs over the Mazda Miata. The body roll on the Miata is so UNSTABLE looking and it is SLOWER. The road manors on the Mazda are very loose with lots of Body lean.


I keep my SKY Thank You!

i remember seeing this video a few months back. Funny how someone from Japan gives more props to an American sports car (which they usually laugh at) while our own mags trash it because it's not foreign...

But hey, the Drift King spoke honestly and truthfully. Can't get better than that. And that was also the 2.4L Solstice. I wonder how he would've liked a GXP or Redline. In his hands, i bet he'd be drifting around half the track

HAD - '07 Redline -292 whp & 327 wtq - SOLD :(
