Little car, big salt
It's National Hub Awareness Month!
Two more Miatas lost their rear wheels on the track this past weekend - both running stock hubs. If you spend a fair bit of time on the track, we strongly recommend you check your rear hubs for cracking on the inside. It may be worth picking up a new set, just to be safe. We don't sell replacement hubs for stock axles, so you'll have to go to your favorite Mazda OE parts supplier or Mazda Motorsports.
Potential supply problem for TokicosMore Flyin' Miata news...
The US distributor for Tokico shocks has recently changed. We don't know who the new one will be yet and it's quite likely there will be an extended gap in the availability of these shocks. We've purchased all remaining stock from the warehouse to give you the best service possible, but if you're considering a suspension package that uses these shocks you should order soon to avoid disappointment.
Update: we are sold out of the NB and NC versions.
FM suspension packages
Just wanted to say that I had a great weekend at Thunderhill
(backwards) with my new FM suspension on my 94. I already had the FM springs/Illumninas and just added matched FM sways. What a blast. I could not believe how flat and balanced the car transitioned between some of the quick turns. It was incredibly stable in off camber turns and I did not seem to give up any traction at all. I did not lose the rear end at all, which surprised me given all the talk about running a increased diameter rear sway.
At first I was hesitant to take a quicker turn in, but I was amazed how quickly the car settled, especially with a little left foot brake.
