Fedex can't read their own paper work, only got fucked for $28, but I'm with you Ryan, never again if I don't have to.

Yeah, that should be enough. I have little more than 1/8" when bottomed, the caliper sits about 1/8" off the rotor, at least the dynalite.

So you are .005" shy of the recommended 1/8" clearance, nothing I'd be concerned about.

You should buy a 3d printer and print a baller black case to hide it even more.

What, officer? That's just 1990's auto dimming mirror tech!

Wouldn't the detector still need to be mounted in some line of sight? There's not a lot of places to hide it on the miata.

Well, I don't have a hardtop, so what do I know.

<p>Could a spare injector output trigger a horn? Could I put a horn in my drivers compartment and turn it on if I go above say 215*?</p>

You'd probably want a relay, but sure. You don't need a high-precision output like an injector driver, even, a simple on/off output is adequate.
