Hey @hankookmotorsports your tires smoke reeeaaaalllly well, I need more πŸ™ˆπŸ™Š πŸ“·πŸ“·πŸ“·photo cred @mv_ment πŸ“·πŸ“·πŸ“· #mazda #miata #drifttoy #turbomiata #selfbuilt #dkfabworks #dkfabworkswidebody #dkfabworksanglekit #hankooktires #advancedclutchtechnologies #smokemachine #smoketiresnotdrugs #thatmiataguy

All of my @hankooktireusa #hankooktires look like this, that perfect tire wear tho πŸ™Š my DK Fabworks adjustable rear upper control arms doing what they're designed to do by getting me the most use and grip I can out of my tires. Car was a freaking rocket this weekend, and the MSM turbo and 6 speed is proving to be the best idea I've ever had. Freaking love this little car more and more every event I drive. All of my development is finally paying off ❀️ #mazda #mazdaspeed #miata #driftcar #driftmiata #hankooktires #turbomiata #drifttoy #advancedclutchtechnologies #smoketiresnotdrugs #selffab #selfbuilt #dkfabworks #thatmiataguy

8 brand new tires, and 4 half life tires already mounted. Still probably don't have enough for this weekend, but going full send regardless!

I work on a little bit of everything. Fixed a Polaris RZR4 1000 this weekend, along with some maintenance work on a stroker 6.8l LS s13. I'll work on anything to help fund the Miata drift cars that I'm building. Side hustle strong πŸ˜‰

Nawh but really, turning my car into more or less a Mazdaspeed drivetrain was the best idea I've had. Still totally in love with this setup. For those of you asking about what I'm running, here's a quick detailed break down of my setup. Forged 9.1:1 compression bottom end (Pistons, rods, ACL Bearings, ARP main/head studs) Shaved, and mildly ported head, (should bump compression up a few tenths, haven't measured yet though) Bp5a intake cam 99 bpw4 cam gears (intake cam is 2* advanced over the MSM cam gears) 99 bp4w intake, VICS intact (low end torque) 04 MSM turbo mani, IHI turbo, MSM turbo outlet, 99 Bp4w downpipe, resonated (catalytic converter deleted) midpipe, resonated muffler, Stock ecu, "bumped" base ign (set crank timing wheel to 15* advance timing at idle vs 10*) with AEM F/IC4 piggyback, 12psi, 12.5 AFR @ 9-12 psi, 13.0 afr vacuum to 9psi. MSM 6Speed transmission w/ @5xracing "race" shifter rebuild kit, ACT Stage 2 extreme heavy duty pressure plate, stage 2 organic full face 225mm clutch disk, stock '99 flywheel. 4.3 final drive with Mazda TORSEN LSD. Tire wise I run a 205/50/15 rear, and 195/45/15 front. Best drivetrain setup I've done yet, its my favorite setup that I've driven thus far. Car is a wicked amount of fun. Pumpkin Bash this weekend!

New @advancedclutch stage 2 clutch and extreme pressure plate, bigger injectors, fresh alignment, new adjustable sway bar endlinks, new front hubs, fresh @5xracing shifter rebuild kit, and currently working on my retune for 10psi on the #mazdaspeed turbo setup. This aggressive little hothead car is becoming the very car I've always wanted. Oh and @g.groovy takes rad photos too 😏 #drifttoy #turbomiata #advancedclutchtechnologies #smoketiresnotdrugs #mazda #mazdaspeed #miata #dkfabworks #dkfabworkswidebody #dkfabworksanglekit #msm #mazdaspeedmiatamx5 #selfbuilt #selftaught #pitsidechillen #thatmiataguy

Reasons why you should occasionally check all suspension bits. Found 3 different spots on my control arms where I was hitting due to steering angle. Corrected the issue, gained a couple degrees more angle, and evened out left/right while doing so. As if I actually needed more angle πŸ˜‚ #mazda #miata #dkfabworks #dkfabworkswidebody #dkfabworksanglekit #selfmade #selfbuilt #selftaught #thatmiataguy #datangledoe

lol I had no business turning the boost up, knowing damn well my clutch was on it's way out at the current boost level.

Fixed! No more ugly smashed door. Anyone wanna place bets on how long until I ruin it again? πŸ˜‚ #mazda #miata #selftaught #selfbuilt #dailydriven #driftmiata #drifttoy #dkfabworks #dkfabworkswidebody #thatmiataguy #turbomiata

The internet doesn't like my car, what, is it not shiny enough for ya? πŸ“· @g.groovy πŸ“· #mazda #miata #driftcar #driftmiata #smoketiresnotdrugs #turbomiata #dailydriven #dkfabworkswidebody #dkfabworks #thatmiataguy #topmiata #miatagang #bbrmiata @topmiata @bbrmiata @miatagang

Sick, no more twisted door. It's not perfect, because I got lazy and didn't feel like doing that last 10% to make it perfect, but I'd bet most of you don't see the flaws that I know are there anyways. Logic used- because drift car and this door will probably get smashed again next event lol #mazda #miata #selftaught #selfbuilt #smoketiresnotdrugs #dailydriven #driftmiata #turbomiata #thatmiataguy #dkfabworks #dkfabworkswidebody

Never gonna worry about my clutch slipping ever again 😏 brand new ACT clutch and heavy duty Xtreme pressure plate. Who would've thought the baby turbo would've overwhelmed my clutch setup, instead of the garrett turbo πŸ˜³πŸ™Š #mazda #miata #ACT #advancedclutchtechnologies #dailydriven #driftcar #driftmiata #turbomiata

More damage repair photos. Yes, I know, lots of filler. Not how I prefer to do things, but justified because I'll probably wreck this door again soon, considering this is the second major repair on it. One more hit, and this door is probably done for. On a positive note, at least it'll look good again by the end of the week! No more crunched door and quarter panel! lol #mazda #miata #selffab #selftaught #dkfabworks #dkfabworkswidebody #dailydriven #turbomiata #smoketiresnotdrugs #shithappens #thatmiataguy #fixnotreplace #driftmiata

Began the journey of damage repair finally on this door. Gotta say, didn't think this door was even remotely salvageable, can't believe it straightened out as much as it did. Gonna have to use way more body filler than I'd ever admit to using, but considering this is the second damage repair in this spot, I'm not too mad. Oh, and the car is staying black for another year, but with chrome vinyl, and LED underglow this time around πŸ˜‰. Drift kids are bringing back the NFS Underground era, bet. #mazda #miata #diy #selftaught #selfbuilt #turbomiata #dailydriven #driftmiata #dkfabworks #thatmiataguy
