How common are failures in high miles front bearings that are pounded at the race track with race tires on Spec miatas et al?

Looking at how they normally fail (or more how you can make them survive) it's more due to heat than brute force.

Now that we (more people) know the OEM isn't magically perfect (what a M.net thing to think) when will we see the first kit with 24mm discs?

Yes, I know that spoke clearance is a problem with thicker disks, pads, calipers.

I'm hoping someone can send in a Jongbloed for test fitment. If I hadn't already mounted tires I'd consider it.

As of today, we're still on target for July.

I'm going to purchase a few test wheels to check fitment. If you are ready to purchase a Gen2 11.75" kit today, but you aren't sure about fitting them under your current wheels, which wheels do you own? I'd like to avoid buying wheels that nobody cares about

I have Gen II 6ULs, sized 15x8 (street) and 15x9 (track). Thanks Andrew.

To clarify, I'm looking for wheels we haven't already listed. We know the new kit fits 15x8 and 15x9 6ULs. There are several new 15x9s on the market and I want to make sure I'm prioritizing my R&D dollars as well as I can.

I will be buying the kit during my winter upgrades. Probably not soon enough but I know there are a lot of 15x8 and 9 konig dial ins out there. They are like the same wheel as the avanti storms.

15x9 Jongbloed, 15x9 Konig Dial In, and 15x9 Advanti Storm S1 will be checked for fitment next week.

RPF-1 is one of the tightest fits among 15" wheels, might look into that one. Higher price tag though, so ideally you'd find an owner who can just spare a wheel for an hour.

Tested for fitment with any 15x8 +0? Specifically Traklite Holeshot, but open to others. FM's kit needed spacers to clear Holeshots.

I don't even think the RPF1 clears 11" kits, and it's a bit too pricey and not popular enough. Same thing with the Enkei PF01 and Work CR01s mentioned earlier.

Just not a popular enough size to warrant me buying one. Send me a wheel and make it happen

Is this bad news for Jongbloed owners, or have they just not made it in yet?
