On the MX5...is that front right tire off the ground, or is that a heck of a lot of body roll?

awesome.

buddy of mine bought an '06 MX5, based on my judgement on it (it ROCKS), the Solstice has gotta be pretty damn awe-inspiring.

Yeah that GXP really is fast. I mean have you looked at the power to liter ratio? WOOH, thats one fast machine, I've been thinking about going and testing one out.
