LIGHTWEIGHT TURBOCHARGED 1991 MIATA
“RED BEAST”


Red Beast was my project car from 2003 - 2008. The car was built as an experiment to see what the limits of handling and power would be on a DIY budget. It was definitely one of the fastest (0-60 in 4.9 seconds) cars on the road @ 1900 pounds and 230 HP. The car was track ready but only saw a few autocrosses and drag races. Normally it sat at home on the lift and every couple of months I would back it out of the garage and burn up the streets embarassing Mustangs.
