It makes me wonder is why a company like this couldn't come to a forum like this and be like:
"hey MT, we're CX racing, we make turbo kits(and other assorted bullshit), and try to do it on the cheap. What we want to know is, what could we do to better our kits so that you would buy them"

Am i missing something in this logic? Perhaps they wouldn't like what we would tell them. If they could produce a manifold / downpipe cheaper than the competition, but just as strong. Well... That's what free market is all about right?

It's most likely because a majority of the members here have terrible attitudes so nobody takes them seriously. You literally have to weed through the garbage to find the good info, and not may companies have time for that.

Start one one thread asking for feedback or ideas to make themselves a better company.. Follow responses, and chime in when necessary. There's not much weeding to do there.

I suppose. I know it will never happen though. There are enough dumbass kids already handing them money hand over fist for their shitty turbo kits, that they have no need to actually go out and design something that lasts.

Their other american R&D kits seem to be at least sch10 304SS. I would think a log made from sch10 would survive what most people buying that kit would throw at it.

I'm calling BS... I'd say more than half of the members here use the following CX racing ****:

1. Intercooler
2. Charge pipes
3. Radiator
4. Turbo
5. BOV (I might be reaching on this one, but i've seen a couple)


*I actually use none of their parts because, i support vendors who are part of the community.

I like how they enjoy touting the fact that the turbo provided with the kit is capable of 350 hp.

nb4 "i used the cx racing kit with bandaids and tried to max out the turbo, my rods look like spagettin noodles now, miatas suck my civic could do over 9000 with stock internals and a ti-86 for a computer."

edit: I have a cxracing radiator and intercooler. CXRacing's problem is they seem to do actual R&D one some of their parts. But everything I am looking at on their ebay store and website, all the miata parts look exactly like very other chinese aluminum foil pice out there.

What does "R&D" in this case actually mean? That they took one of their universal intercooler kits, cut the bends to fit, and now will just include those with a churbo and tin-foil manifold?

No the stuff they do in america seems like actual legit work. They actually have some **** for other cars coming out of america that looks decent and totally workable.

Even though that sounds like it would be great... the reason the don't is because people here would eradicate their asses and the thread would turn into complete ****. They are a business, and even though this place is a great source of information it they would probably be better served if someone actually bought it, tested it, and posted their results/complaint/comments/concerns - they could read that, and go off of that for future improvements.

An example is that emusa company...

People don't buy certain products they make for a reason. They also DO buy some products they make for a reason... So you're whole point is moot.

The same EMUSA of which one of their tech/development people told me point blank to my face that they were going to buy an FM2 kit to copy? Those guys don't do a goddamn thing but copy **** with the cheapest materials they can find.

CXRacing is no better, and i've had some pretty shitty customer service issues with them. (Used to buy all my intercooler piping, couplers, and clamps from them.)
