Here are some of the cool things I saw on the way to the September 2012 Caffeine and Octane car show, onboard my friend's 1997 Mazda Miata...
You can see us encounter a G37X sedan, a couple Mustangs with a Firebird, and a pack of BMWs... enjoy and stay tuned!
Mazda Miata LOUD sounds/donuts!
Once again, I have made a video of my friend's 1997 Mazda Miata. This time,
I mounted my Cybershot DSC-H70 on the rear bumper, next to the Exhaust, and got some great sounds! There are
also some shots from inside the car using my CX-100...
Hope you enjoy all the loud accelerations, downshifts and donuts! :)
Mazda Miata onboard drifting/donuts!!
I recently took a ride in my friend Ali's Miata to test out the great gift
he gave me: a camera mount! This is just what I needed to take my videos to
the next level, so HUGE thanks to Ali!!
In the video, you can see footage from both my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC H70
(mounted on the side window) and my CX-100 camcorder that I also took
along, as we mess around a bit in the Mazda...
More videos of Ali's Miata in action can be found here:
And, of course, photos of my new mount can be found on my blogger page...
Thanks for watching! What do you think of my new camera mount?

Mazda Miata in action!
On the way back from Caffeine and Octane this morning, I recorded the loud
sounds of my friend's 1997 Mazda Miata. It's a work in progress, but the
car sounds great in the cold weather!
The car has an Invidia N1 Exhaust...

Pedders and HoonTV Mazda Mx5 project car
Pedders recently teamed up with independent film maker Mark Boxer to bring
you the HoonTV Mazda Mx5 project car. Mark Boxer says "Earlier this year we
put this video together of our MX5 being fitted with all new Pedders
eXtreme coil-overs. Originally when we took the car to the Wakefield Park,
just running the lowered springs we pulled out, the car managed a 1:16.3
with only a basic brake upgrade, intake Exhaust and Advan AD08 tyres. We're happy to say
that with the eXtreme coil-overs fitted, we shaved off a whole second and
got the car down to a 1:15.1. The amazing part too is that this was with no
major adjustments to the suspension given the amount available and as the
day progressed we suffered a sticky rear brake caliper which affected
braking performance, yet were still able to go just as fast!"

Mustang GT 5.0 & the MX-5 Miata Review
After a loooooong break, largely because Charlie is lazzy, we are back! And
we have a new format. In the interest of continueing to totally rip off Top
Gear, we are now modeling our video layout as such. Watch as we smoke the
tires on the new Mustang
5.0 and toss around the MX-5 Miata. And we even showcase a little 2011
Houston Auto show as well. Sit back, enjoy the ride, and as usual, don't
forget to visit our site at www.burnoutradio.com
My New To Me 1991 Mazda Miata
Yep. Here she is. For all of you saying that I overpaid, you should
probably get all of the details. The car had a new motor in it with only
80k on it, I have all the documentation to prove it. Along with the car I
also got a whole host of new parts, extra seats, dash boards, carpet, roof,
a/c parts, alternator, radiator... the list goes on. No, I didnt over pay.
Fluid MotorUnion Getting Fabel Off - The Lowest Static Car in America??
Miles said he wanted Fabel to drag frame. And with a little bit of
wrenching, we accomplished that for him :)
The car's a smidge higher now, just to make sure the frame rail
reinforcements dont rip off the frame rails, but it's still dangerously
We wish Miles and Fabel the best of luck on his way to H2Oi this year.
Because luck will certainly come in to play here :)
Work Performed on Fabel (the Miata, if you haven't guessed) at FMU:
-Oil pan skid plate install
-Underbody skid plate install
-Front wheel spacer install
-Custom Exhaust midpipe
-Custom muffler exit + shroud
-Custom Exhaust tuck (for maximum lows
with minimum risk)
-Jackson Racing header install + heat wrap
