Another female reader's ride? We must be lucky to get two in a row. This reader ride comes to us from up in Bradford, Ontario, and is owned by Lisa Baudet.

Tech: TWM Performance 370Z Short Shifter Install

Other than installing an air intake system, a short shifter is the next easiest and must-have modification for any vehicle. From factory most manual transmission vehicles are fun to drive with the only complaint being a long throw between gear changes, this is where a short shifter kit like this one courtesy of TWM Performance makes all the difference. As TWM Performance puts it, "By reducing the angle that the shaft travels through between gears, the distance that your hand needs to move between gears is also reduced. In many cases, the shifter shaft is also re-designed to be shorter than stock thus creating a sportier look and feel, as well as aiding in reducing the linear throw length when coupled with the reduced angular throw." In this week's #TechThursday piece we install this beautiful kit in the AMF Nissan 370Z project car and show you a step-by-step on how you too can do it with readily available tools in just over an hour.

Blue Samurai: Mazda Miata Supercharged

First introduced in 1989 at the Chicago Auto Show by Mazda, the Miata otherwise known as the MX-5 has earned the right to be called the best sports car of all time. Since its introduction, there have been nearly 1-million sold around the world and at any given race day (amateur or pro level), one will find a slew of these small coupes thrashing through a road course with ease. Jason Woo of Toronto, Canada is no stranger to the Miata having not only built this daily driver, but also currently racing his ’99 MX-5 in various time attack series.
