From F1 to Nascar to grandma's Camry....it's Car Talk.

I still have a X1/9.

Engine still likes to be abused. It is a 1500 engine and I put a much smaller steering wheel on it to help with the twitchy steering. It corners fast and still puts a smile on my face every time I drive it. By comparison the Mazda Miata feels very bland and a but vague. the Mazda accelerates a bit quicker to 60 (by about 1 second) but the X1/9 is better through the corners, much better. I think the problem with the Mazda is the weight. It is much heavier and therefore more nervous in the corners. The X1/9 you just turn the wheel and it goes.
