You know that movie Jiro Dreams of Sushi? The Miata equivalent is Emilio Dreams of Long Intake Runners.

Doesn't quite have the same ring to it.

I'd still watch it though.

We've been working on pad options for the ND in all our popular compounds. Front pads took some time as they are being custom made for us, and we have options for the Brembo calipers as well:

MX5ND Brakes - Pads - Mazda Performance Parts

A quick glance at pricing makes a strong case for our caliper upgrade kits. The almighty PFC 11 nearly $400 for the factory front caliper, $359 for the Brembo, $75 for our DynaPro 4 piston kit.

Only good things can come of this.

Turns out that when you do a Google Images search for "Vitamin D", the color orange is massively predominant in the results:




The ramifications of this happy coincidence are intuitively obvious.

Curious why start with a GT rather than a Sport? Availability?

This.

FM got one or two GTs I think. Goodwin got an LE and GT. I got a GT. We all wanted one Sport and one Club, which we could have gotten for for S-Plan pricing.. in December. So we all paid pretty much full pop for GT's so we could get started with R&D.

It gets funnier. The dealers have scant few manuals of any version. They ordered all autos, based on NC sales. Now the autos are piling up at dealers.

Normally you are on the forefront of development and everyone else is playing catch up. Its funny to see you get bullied into to buying a ND GT at full pop It was a good call though, 5k more now but months of earlier sales. Your going to need to add a parking deck out back.

Default 17x9 6UL with 235/40/17 Maxxis RC-1

Again lowered in photoshop. These fit better than anticipated based on our measurements off a pre-production car a few months ago. Zero mods required at any ride height. Kinda nuts. It's a huge tire for a 2300lb car.

Bronze looks proper on the ceramic white!

17x9 with no fender mods. That's going to take a little while to sink in.

What width could you run with a roll? Any measurement of maximum width from perch to fender? (Apologies if already answered, haven't seen it yet if so)
