    Ae86 vs miata

    I put together this editorial on my experience with the two driving machines.

    In conclusion. Miatas make a guy look like a homo lol. But they are a decent fun car to drive. I will stick with my 86 and probly never drive a Miata. Ever. No offence lol

    Nah its two guys in a Miata that look gay,I only drive my Miata with a helmet on and I either set FTD or VERY close to it and I've never once had anyone ask how I could go so fast and be gay.

    As a guy with one of the most heavily modded AE86 race cars to be found you owe yourself to put aside your homophobic fears and drive a prepped Miata,the AE86 is a wicked fun car but sorry it pales in comparison for speed when equally modded(and WAAAY slower stock to stock)

    Yeah a little rich in the tofu,

    Corolla is a POS in the handling game compared to a miata. But very different times.

    Having owned more than one corolla and one miata, I can say that if you are even attempting to compare a Miata to a Corolla, you can't. Nothing holds a candle stock for stock in that department. Even a modified 86 could get walked by a beat up stock Miata. Miata stops faster, turns better and in general is more predictable and stable than a corolla. The ONLY department an 86 might have a chance at beating it is driver dryness test in a rainstorm.

    Quoted for truth. It is only fun because of that fact it is trying to kill you, slowly.

    Miata's aren't gay, and I am pretty ok with everyone who has never driven one to continue thinking that they are. More cars for me to snag and drive around in. Argueably one of the best people's sports cars ever built.

    Sorry, You can put a wheelbarrow in the back of a 86 hatch and close the trunk. It has that going for it as well.

    but you could TOW the wheelbarrow behind the miata, or use it as a hardtop (saves 500$!), and accomplish either with a ratchet strap.

    Miata FTW!

    like I said as a track car there is no comparison, the Miata takes it hands down, it is after all a sports car. As a daily/drifter they are much more comparable cars.

    I once got into race with a miata on the streets of calgary, guy was probobly 40 and i was in my Hyandai pony. We were going downhill so I was power-matched for the miata . The guy had so much front grip on a hard turn he nearly flipped the miata. the miata was 90 degrees in the air. terrifying to watch only feet infront of you. Needless to say the old codger slowed down and I caught up to him side by side and just looked at him, as he stared forward contemplating how close he came to death in a convertable bakingsheet called a miata. He knew his balls were back there on the road, and he had been toasted, waxed, finished. He never got more than a car length infront of me, even though he tried and almost died.

    It does both quite well, I daily my Miata. It's ultra reliable, the heat works great and if you get a hardtop you don't feel miserable every time it rains. The controls are all nicely placed and visibility other than rearward because of my roll bar is pretty good. The corolla only edges it out in interior space and dryness, that said I have been in some sunroof corollas that were swimming pools.

    The Miata is very satisfying to drift too, you just gotta go Ricky Bobby fast.

    The only Mazda comps in the same range would probably be the 323 GT and RX7 FB (about $1.5k more). FC's started around $4k more.

    "The Miata will get some compliments along with some “hairdresser” comments and odd looks from the average public, enthusiasts are never really sure if you are a stance guy, a drifter, or a homosexual"

    Miata released in '89,toyota could of continued to evolve the corolla as a sporty car but went with the MR2 and supra.Both great choices that left those looking for an affordable sports car to look elsewhere...right when the sport compact scene was in full swing hence the explosion of the Honda civic that filled the gap and both the mr2 and supra went the way of the dodo.

    Toyota dropped the ball with the frs/brz imo in that they don't have their badge on it and a Subaru engine in it(no love from me for those exploding pos's).I loved the look of the early prototypes but the production version looks like ass with the mazda3 wannabe front fenders.
