-Those springrates blow. I am running another 2.5kg up front with the same front bar. Your car will be a snappy, oversteering mess with those rates.

-I have never heard of Sumitomo brake pads. I assume you have experience with them?

-Where's your oil cooler setup? IMO, it's a necessity for a track-driven FI Miata.

Now the real question: Will any of those parts actually make it on the car?

i agree about the spring rates, maybe if you went lower in the rear it would be better. or 9k/6k

nice setup, where are you going to pick up the BC coilovers and why those instead of stance, tein etc etc...

You don't "tune out" a 150# error in spring rate with alignment and ride height changes. I wouldn't even bother installing those coilovers.

Are you certain that a six puck with stock pressure plate be able to handle 12psi?

I'm thinking.... no.
