Share in the trials and tribulations of turning a bare frame and wrecked Miata into a racetrack demon, and learn how to build a sports car of your own along the way. This book provides specific answers to common questions and covers the entire building process, including the post-build fine-tuning of the car that is necessary to extract the car's full performance (and fun) potential.

Keith Tanner has been racing, modifying, and writing about Miatas for two decades and currently works full-time at a performance shop that pushes the boundaries of the little sports cars. At home, his garage contains a wide variety of cars that he’s built, ranging from a classic Land Rover to a 400-horsepower V8 rally Miata. He’s published four books in the Motorbooks Workshop series: Mazda Miata MX-5 Performance Projects; Mazda Miata: Find it, Fix it, Trick it; How to Build a High Performance Mazda Miata; and How to Build a Cheap Sports Car. Tanner has also written a number of magazine articles. Official Website: http://www.slowcarfast.comOn Facebook: http://on.fb.me/13XBjrmReview:
Car and Driver, August 2006
Included in “The Homemades: Yes you can build a sports car for just a few grand”
“This book is useful for Locost builders in the U.S. because it focuses on the Miata as the donor vehicle, a car that is readily available ... it’s an instructive read.”
American Car World (UK), December 2006
“This is a good effort and an enjoyable 192-pages that will be a useful addition to your workshop manual type book collection.”
Grassroots Motorsports, October 2007
“An absolutely brilliant read for anyone even remotely interested in cars, engineering, high-performance track machinery, engine and suspension tuning or garage projects in general. Turns out Keith’s a fine, often funny writer with a wonderful, practical, nuts-and-bolts grasp of things ... Better yet, he puts it into words and phrases that an average Joe can understand. And enjoy. Go online and buy yourself a copy right now.”
