Question Best Bang For My Buck Coilovers. Need Insight Please

So I purchased my first Miata(NA) about 2 weeks ago, I've had multiple other cars but everything I've been finding out is that Miata's are kinda a thing of their own so since I'm a noob in this world I could really use some help.

I'm looking to find the best bang for my buck coilover setup, I'm trying to stay under $700, low budget yeah I know and i don't need my ***** busted about it. The car will be used on the street and autoX. I don't care about stance or any of that played out crap, I need a stable suspension that will be ready for abuse when the time comes. Any and all insight is appreciated keep any negativity to yourself, I'm here for answers.

Thanks,
Rin

If you can afford to spend $700 on a suspension, you can afford to spend more than $700 on a suspension.

You will need to spend more than $700 on a suspension for your goal.

In the meantime, i'll throw you the only piece of spoon feeding you'll get in lieu of you reading one of the many thousands of threads asking this same EXACT question:

You should be able to piece together a half-way decent setup using NB Bilsteins, sleeves, springs of a rate of your choice, bumpstops, and NB top hats, within your price range.

However, since you needed to make this thread, i sincerely doubt you have it in you to put something like that together.



TL;dr: Have you heard of Racelands?

So miata guys are ***** lol figured as much, nobody is asking for spoon feeding, i've used that magical search bar and ive found many different suspensons setups, hence why I was asking for a little insight being ive never had one of these cars. And for Raceland they drive like ****, they cant take abuse so theres that.

No, this thread is nothing but asking for spoon feeding.

You didn't use the magical search bar.

Miata guys are *****, and idiotic new miata guys are idiotic. Such is life.

If you don't like Racelands, then what do you think you're going to get for your budget? I mean... what answer are you looking for?

If you want all of our hard earned information being the most knowledgeable site regarding Miata performance, and don't want to search for it, your going to take an *** whoopin. This is not a forum over run by 16 year old kids. Your speaking to engineers, fabricators, and top level racers. If you want to ask stupid questions and get stupid answers, try club roadster. If you want the same 5 morons to respond to you with questionable information, go to miata.net. If you would like to ask a "new" question that hasn't got beat to death, and have your question answered by an expert, stay here. If you would like to search for all of our fabulous information, read, and shut your mouth, stay here. I also tried to help you in post three, your being a dick, so I'm deleting my help.

If your budget is $700, check out the Tein Basis at 949 racing.

See what you fail to realize in your pea sized brains is I've searched read your precious little threads and have seen a bunch of nothing just people being dicks as you are here. I was asking for a bit of direction a sliver of a real opinion but obviously you all have your heads to far up your asses. Two thumbs up miataturbo.net you are nothing but glorified honda ********.

[inside joke]Call one of the top Miata racing vendors and ask for advice; once you're firm about your choice, shop online and get the suspension from the cheapest e-tailer.[/inside joke]

They really aren't being dicks, if you had actually read through suspension threads like you said you did you wouldn't have asked this question. I haven't asked any questions because I did read threads and found answers. He's such a sensitive boy isn't he?
