Seems worth while if you lust for sub 15" rims. I would think most on this forum would just spend the extra 150-200 bills for the Wilwoods since they'd want the increased thermal mass of a larger rotor anyhow.

Unless you're going to be running your F Prod races backwards, the stronger front calipers will in fact worsen the already dangerous brake bias problem with stock 1.8 rear brakes, thus dooming you to no higher than a 38th place finish (and that's being generous).

I would not bother with these. If you are truly interested in improving your performance, I will happily consult (preferably in person) for $400 and I promise you'll get your money's worth. Just ask the (literally) dozens of local men (mostly Miata drivers) who won't stop calling and thanking me. I promise they all walked away with a smile on their face.

Not really--lack of proper KVR pad selection will hamper their performance.

Why is Planet Miata so obscenely expensive? I called them for a 6-speed a couple years ago and they wanted $1200, $1600 for an MSM trans. Who's buying this ****? For their price on these used, ebay crap calipers you're more than half way to the Trackspeed kit.

Here I thought this was a "make fun of cr.net" thread. Interesting parts over there.
