Well I appreciate you doing it, and I'm really looking forward to see just how great they are.

Well we've only got 4 payments in of the 11 that said they would participate. Not sure what happened here. I have the order in, and barely any of it is being covered by ther orders I have so far. I thought we would have had more that would come through then this.

U have paypal. Just to confirm, these will fit my 99 right?

OT: I am hoping that maybe you will have a GB on adaptronic again sometime... thanks again for alerting me of the last one. Next time please do those bigger purchase offers AFTER taxes are due!!

I was worried this might happen when the majority of the GB was a bunch of newbs.

Do we still get the same price shipped, or will the order fall through and we end up paying whatever regular price is?

Just a note: I had a shop mount the version 1 to my car and it is truly amazing! You need this on your car.

I'm on my third set with none installed. Everytime I get a new set, somebody begs to buy them from me. Thinking about stocking them

I'm looking forward to this more than I was with my suspension.

My car has 220K+ miles on the chassis, and is a friggin' rattletrap. I'm just glad there are good options out there. I was either going to have to save up for the FM set, or weld some angle iron...

You will love them. I haven't had a single person say that they didn't make a significant improvement in the 45 sets that I sold. Glad that Travis was able to continue this product. When you said angle iron, that is what made me do them in the first place. When I first did them FM rails were $200. Too much for what they are. After these came out they dropped the price. Another guy did an angle iron set for cheap and I thought, "I can do that" and just bridged the gap.

Things like this are what make the Miata enthusiast crowd great.

Not to mention my fab skills suck, and I hate to thing about what a loose piece of 4' angle iron could do under a car at 80mph

IIRC, the ones I shipped to UK, Ireland and one other country were all around $82.50 for a set USPS Priority Mail which was the best rate that I could find.

I would say the same thing, I won't know until I actually go down there but somewhere just south of $100.

Travis, for those of us who paid, do you have an ETA on when the rails will go out?
