Default CaniBeat, NA Feature "Built To Perform"

Figured I would share this canibeat feature since I enjoyed reading through it

It says "Built to perform" however I don't believe stretched tires would have performed as well as a non stretched tire, but I'm not going to take anything away from this guys take on a Miata build

That is what I was wondering, I didn't wanna say it wasn't able to perform but I'm very sure that this wouldn't be able to corner very well at speeds if at all.

I just want his wheel, I was in the process of tracking down a used Nardi wood grain for my 240 before I had to sell, they look damn good, maybe not the best or comphy wheel out there but it deffinitly makes up for that with class.

It is also a bit amusing that after finding this "rare" car he drilled holes all over the body and put sheet metal screws through it. Fun stuff, lol.

This is true, I don't see the use of looking for so long to find the rare car or color and then do body work

Yea that looks like ***... Maybe if he put a proper wheel/tire combo I would like it. Get this slammed stanced crap out of here. I bet it handles terribly.

I don't like stanced cars either, I figured I would just share, there are a few things that are nice about this car, his interior looks pretty clean, sure not the best interior race wise but for a DD interior looks pretty good. speaking of wheel/tires what is a good offset for a rim on a NA, I'm looking at rpf1's for when I get NA, and if anyone has any personal exp. or insight on that rim just let me know.

Don't get me wrong. I like some cars that are well done... But I absolutely hate the extreme stretched tire look. It's ok if it's like a 205 on a 7.5" wheel. But the guy's that are like wrapping 8" wheels with 195 rubber are dumb. The interior on the car and engine bay etc all look fantastic though.


I don't understand how this is "built to perform" when obviously it looks like it could barely handle driving in a strait line.
