thinking of building an off road miata as an art project for burning man and other regional burns. 

anyone have any advise vis a vis welded diffs versus LSD, tires to deal with off road only (car will be trailered to burns) etc? the current plan is some 29-31 inch tall off road tires, VLSD or welded diff, 3 inch lift kit, and some propane burners on the roll bar triggered from the steering wheel. cut off the windshield, remove doors, weld some fun stuff to the car etc .... 

I know almost nothing about off roading. i do know alot about miatas.

If it's off road only just weld the diff, but why do you even need that for burning man?

I like mine, but have trouble finding places to use it.
