I was thinking like a forum discounted price or something of that nature.

<p>Not really. I don't even think they are in stock right now. They get them in batches. Maybe I should buy a stage 2 when they finally restock.</p>

Ah, gotcha. I didn't know if they did that or not. Their website shows that they have Happy Meals in stock so maybe I can get them to sell me just the clutch kit without the flywheel.

That link doesn't specify if they have any in stock, though. But the Happy Meal link does show stock... So I guess they have them.

I know... I'm saying that it doesn't show how many they have in stock of the FM Stage 1 like they do with the Happy Meals. I'm sure they do have them in stock, though. Will most likely be ordering later this afternoon.

Alright, they don't have stage 2s in stock even though the site says they are in stock under the Happy Meal section. He said that they will update it ASAP. They are still waiting on the heavy duty throwout bearings from Competition. The guy I spoke to said that they might be in within a few weeks.

I think I will just go for the stage 1 because I don't ever really plan on being over 300 wtq anyway.

You only need the stage 1 on a stock motor.

Right. And if/when I ever do build the motor, I will just upgrade to a stage 2 or possibly go with the ACT Extreme. Thanks for all the input guys

Just ordered my FM Stage 1 clutch kit. Should pair nicely with my resurfaced '05 Mazdaspeed flywheel. Will post pics when everything comes in!

Picked up this brake setup last night for $50! The guy who sold me them swapped a supercharged 5.0 into his Miata. He bought this Power Stop rotor and pad kit from Summit Racing and decided that it wasn't going to cut it for him after 100 miles of driving on only the front setup. He ended up going with a full big brake kit from Wilwood.

So I got a (basically) brand new $300 performance brake setup for only $50, nice!



The guy's supercharged 5.0 Mariner Blue Beaut

I've read that the 1.8 brake swap isn't really worth the money/effort and that it is better to just spend some money on a good set of pads and a good set of rotors. So this is exactly what I was in the market for and then these popped up.


My *new* performance brake setup

<p>Decent street pads from what I've read. Probably wouldn't last on the track though. Not sure what your goals for the car are.</p>

Yeah, I have heard solid reviews about this setup. The front rotors are drilled, slotted, and vented so that's neat. It is mostly a fun weekend cruiser with some spirited back road runs every now and again. Gonna wait until I get my SCCA- Certified roll bar before I really get into much track stuff. I will be trying out autox towards the end of Summer, though! Again, after I get my roll bar welded in

<p>Roll bar isn't really needed for auto-x. Once you get to actual serious auto-x then nobody runs a roll bar. Too much weight.</p>

Weird. My local club that hosts autox events requires you to have a roll bar. Regardless, I would like to have one just for piece of mind.

I'd double check that. They don't.
