if you guys want a big brake kit for your miatas, my family makes them, go to www.hyedracyl.com and check it out, not sure off the top of my head how much they are, im running the kit (uses stock calipers and i think 12.5" rotors) and OMG is there alot of stopping power!!! its so much cheaper then buying the willwood kit!!!

sorry about that guys, i talked to my uncle(he runs the site and the business) and it seems that we made my kit special, to do this brake upgrade utilizing the stock calipers it requires casting, not just a bolt on extension as some kits take.. im sorry about the false alarm on that one guys!

News? I'm also interested in a set of brackets.

Here's two pics I found on the pointy board of the bracket size differences:

Did you see that? Gas just hit $3.50 a gallon. Damn.
UHWM differential mounts are now $45 shipped. Buy some if you need some.
Iíve had some requests for a stage 2 so Delrin diff mounts are coming out soon. Probably 45-60 days out without a group buy.
UHWM NA/NB Miata motor mounts in soon. Machine shop just confirmed that theyíll be finished by Tuesday or Wednesday of next week and shipped by the weekend.
Big brake kit is currently getting the best of me. Should have a handle on it within the week. Updates asap on that one. Thereís a thread over on Miataturbo, Iíll link when something good happens.
Nothing since then. I sent them an email a week ago.

Anybody try using some measurements and emachineshop.com? My fab guy said no because of liability..... With the right measurements.... mounting points and caliper offset.... anybody with some sense should be able to make something up in CAD and have it made...

I have a set of 4 pot RX7 calipers. I'll be making some brackets this summer, and thought about making a few extra sets if there's interest.
