I know i'm not a Pro driver (though i do know quite a few of them) and honestly, equipment only accounts for so much. What i was looking for was a setup that was not super expensive. I know often times, a "cheaper" product can perform ALMOST as well as a much more expensive product. In my case, spending an additional $500+ for something that is name brand, may not be necessary. I was looking for feedback from people that have used the product i was questioning, or a similar product. Again, thanks for taking the 10 seconds to respond, but next time, find something more constructive to write. Thanks
Mike, I don't know how much better I could have answered your stupid question that has been answered 1000 times. I felt you didn't even deserve a reply but I was nice enough to take thirty seconds and give you the COMPLETE list of everything you need to run a cheap ebay spring/collar setup. You sure are pissy for a 30 year old man. If we let the boards get over run with newbs then you would have 20 replies all not worth anything. Instead at MT.net you will normally get lucky and get one golden post by an experienced veteran. We have done all the leg work for you, we feel you should invest the 30 seconds to search for our posts. Below sums up my thoughts posted by the most knowledgeable miata track guy in the country, who luckily posts here regularly.

There is a reason I post mainly here and on trackhq. The little bit of work required to be a member here does an pretty good job of keeping trolls and lazy, inconsiderate newbs at bay.

OP, go check out miata.net. There's two or three new threads started each week asking "what suspension should I get?" Fortunately, there's a handful of regulars that live just to answer the same questions over and over. It validates their existence; everyone wins! It's exactly what you're looking for while, evidently, miataturbo.net is not.

The thing is, we like this place the way it is and aren't interested in changing it to suit your needs. Seriously, would you walk into a bar and tell everyone there that you don't like them and then expect them to become the people you wish they were? Just for you? That would take a pretty childish view of the world.

Ha! I got negative props for my comment on Megans. Seriously, Ive used several different coilovers and these were in my opinion the best bang for the buck. Yeah they are megans but unless you have tried them **** off. I had v max and they were good but I like how easy the megans were to adjust. They can be had for 640 shipped. Slightly less then the v max. Its just my opinion.

And you felt so strongly about this negative prop that you decided you needed to make a post explaining why you didn't deserve it?

Ha I remember seeing this. There has been several people with that I have ignored advice due to negative props. Mostly in the -30s. I feel like I kind of thread jacked but to be quite honest it never really was much of a thread to begin with.

Why did you ignore them though? Was it the neg props, or because they made a questionable statement with nothing to back it up? Something like "Megans are the best cheap coilover you can buy" and then not saying anything to back that statement or explain your reasoning.
