Wouldn't want the Miata chassis for that type of power anyways.

Ha. He thought about trying to snag that but the unplanned turbo replacement/upgrade on the F350 put an end to that.

Is the Rx8 a significantly better chassis? In what way. I know nothing about them.

Yes. Massively. For starters the chassis is an order of magnitude stiffer from the factory. It requires exactly 500% more force to deflect the RX8 chassis the same amount as a Miata in a torsional rigidity test. Then after that the suspension geometry is new and improved, all of the parts are bigger and stronger, better aerodynamics, but most importantly is just the wheelbase and the size tires you can fit with just a widebody (315mm on 18" wheels). Larger wheelbase means more stability at higher power levels and much higher speeds. I don't want to be going 170MPH in a Miata. Ever.

They really are fantastic cars, it's just a shame the Renesis was such a disappointment that it didn't allow the car to be successful.

Worked for me. How big is it? Wonder if my buddy with a desktop router could cut it somehow.

Thanks Ryan! But I noticed it says for VVT VC. How different is VVT vs BP4W vs BP as far as mounting points back there?

Screenshot preview just cuz

Mounting points should be the same this one just fits around VVT stuff.

Then bent it and did some final fitment.







Then installed everything. SUPER excited about how it turned out.

I wonder if an NC subframe swap makes an MZR drop right in. I know an RX8 subframe swap into an NC makes the rotard drop right in.
