They will not fit an RPF1, nor will any BBK. If you need a BBK, you need to switch wheels.

Will this fit 15x8 rpf1 with a 5mm spacer?

No. RPF1s are not designed to fit BBKs period. If you own RPF1s and you made your Miata fast enough to warrant a BBK, you need new wheels

Gotcha. Thanks.

I was hoping to avoid buying three sets of 6ULs less than a year before 949 comes out with the next gen.

The miata size is 17x11 in the rear, 15x6 in the front, right?

Haha, I was thinking of getting three different colors, I'll see what I can do.

One set for street (and backup if I bend a rim or two at the track) two sets for track.

I'll be running the BBK all the time. Too bad I really hate how the 6ULs look. But hey, I don't look at my car when I'm driving it. I'll enjoy the proper offset and better fender clearance the 6ULs will give.

Why? I am still winning races on Gen1 wheels produced in 2009. If you always wait for the next latest/greatest thing, you'll never enjoy anything today.

Because thumpetto always buys something the day before the upgrade is released.

That reminds me. Marcello, will you go buy a ceramic twin disc, so that the organic one will get released a week after.

If I am buying three sets, I'd prefer it to be the lighter, better model that is coming out soon. But, yes, I agree, which is why I still buy lots o stuff.

So true. My curse continues to be defective parts, and missing the release date of the next model by under a week.

Only 2 days after buying the D2S 3.0 projectors, the D2S 4.0 was released. :/

Yeah, I'll probably get that cluch soon, if the pucked 949 clutch I bought somehow (inevidably) fails.

I'm very interested in this kit, is the only difference between this kit and the 949 kit the brackets/hats? I can't seem to find any information on how you guys can sell it for such a lower price.

This does not come with pads, and I believe the 949 kit does. This give you the freedom of using the money you save to buy the pads you actually want, rather than throwing away the Wilwood pads when you get them.

949 gives you the option of choosing no pads, with the same exact options 949 is 210 bucks more. I feel like i'm missing something? I'm aware that they include different brake fluid and have different hats/brackets but i'm curious as to what makes 949's 200 bucks more?

949 is reselling a V8R kit under their private label. Our Trackspeed Gen2 kit was designed in-house and the parts are purchased straight from the machine shop that cuts them exclusively for us. One less distribution step in our model = lower cost to consumers.

I see, okay that makes sense now.
