Not my thing but it looks like a blast to drive. It also looks pretty neutral with some safety understeer, I think that's pretty cool since they probably did that on purpose so it didin't feel like it was going to kill the driver.

Kind of.

You buy the tube frame chassis and bolt Miata bits to it.

You don’t actually carry any thing from the Miata unibody over. Only things that can be unbolted.

i would think the supercharged V8 is heavy and likely unnecessary to be stupid fast in a chassis like this. What is the weight balance on this thing?

Does it really matter? It'll never do anything impressive, but it'll get YT views.

I'm sure it's fun, but seems like a death trap. The rollbar might be over their helmets, but there isn't anything else like a windshield frame to help protect them if inverted. Also, if it rolls or hits something on the side, the occupants are going to be in serious trouble.
