V8 Miatas are beasts on any track. It's the Cobra kit car for people that can't afford a Shelby Cobra, OR even a Cobra kit car. From the Monster Miata FAQ:

Q: How much weight does the V8 conversion (engine, transmission and differential) add to the car?
A: Approximately 250 lbs. total.

Q: What is the weight distribution after the conversion?
A: With a half tank of gas, 53/47.


Monster Miata Someday I'd still like to build one of these.

This is a better video of what a V8 Miata should be like, including how engineers from Mazda visited them and gushed over the car:

250lbs is quite enough to screw up a car's balance.

Just sayin'
