1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata: The Steering

1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata: The Steering

I marvel at how superb the steering is in our LT Project Miata whenever I get into it. It's quick, precise and has an excellent feel. This is the kind of directness you want in your sports car.

I don't exactly mind gripping that Momo wheel, either. 

No doubt a good portion of the credit has to go to the alignment set up by Jay Kavanagh. Never underestimate the value of a good alignment with the correct amount of camber and caster to make a car handle well.
