Québécois V-Spec

It's a truism to say that the Mazda MX-5 (or Miata, in this case) is a sensational driver's car. So if you're going to start monkeying around with the chassis setup and cranking up the power, it pays to know what you're doing.
This particular Miata has been subject to some expert tinkering. Starting with the desirable V-Spec as a base - with its British Racing Green paint, tan leather and Nardi steering wheel - it's had all manner of under-bonnet upgrades: Jenvey throttle bodies, HKS cams, baffled sump, forged crank, big valves, big injectors, Megasquirt standalone ECU, and much more besides. The controversial changes have taken place beneath, comprising Stance GR+ coilovers and adjustable camber arms. Is the power still exploitable and the tail so keen to wag when the chassis is wound down that low? Well, I guess Québec's roads are smoother than ours...
