Yep. More things he bought probably would have fit.

FYI I just got an email reply from V8R this morning. Seems wheels are rolling and they're looking into it. Fingers crossed for a resolution.

You got to email. God forbid you set up a website to sell your parts.

He's not wrong, it is a little frustrating that Moti doesn't have a functional website. Shoot, I don't even need a webstore! At least list all your products somewhere! Moti has a bunch of cool stuff, but I can't remember what all of it is because there isn't a consolidated list anywhere on the internet.

Best to follow his FB page I guess [unless he's secretly selling our data... ]. He just released a formed coolant pipe to replace the reroute flexible hose options that's kind of cool.

Well he does sell most of his products though other big name Miata suppliers now. Let them do the heavy lifting and carry the costs of advertisement and website. Post anywhere asking for a product Moti makes a version of and his name is quickly mentioned and you're pointed to the correct vendor(s). That way Moti can concentrate on cool projects instead of PR.

Yeah .. if the black bird version was available a few months ago .. I might have gone with that instead.

Shows the care and attention to detail that he removes material around the bolt holes to minimize weight.

I don't think those drop mounts will work in my application. I've got at least 1/2" of power steering risers. I would probably hit power steering lines. Curious to know though.

They've been available for over a year, but because BBFW doesn't maintain a website the only way you'd know is if you happen to see his posts on social media.
