No, he doesn't.

Stance GR+ is a full coilover shock, none of this OEM replacement with sleeves bs, with its own tophats.

Stance might be a ******* brand, I sure as hell don't think of them when I think miata shocks.

I agree with the second bit though, if you want to increase the rear spring rate, you need to do the same to the front.

edit: Drif-ter is ****'d out, I love mt.net.

Didn't realize that...if they bottom out as they come then that proves there was no R&D into this product, making it a **** product!!! Ebay FTW!

I've seen some silver Koni struts as part of their "coilover kits", but I'm pretty sure the "Race" dampers, at least in the Miata fitment, are yellow.

Once my car is back up and running and I hit up and atuo-x I'll try to find this guy named Curt, real fast driver, and look at his suspension again, that's the only time I have seen Koni race shocks and remember it being silver, hopefully he'll be able to clarify this for me as I am seriously confeused at this point. He could have the coil overs and that's what confeused me...
Yes, it is a Miata.

Bilstein HD....(need revalve or new shock...hate it)
QA1 400 front(soon to be 560lb)
Qa1 300 rear
FCM threaded perches
FCM Top mounts
FCM 48mm Bumpstops (soon to be 36mm)
Gearhead Garage 2.low endlinks
FM 1" front bar
No Rear bar

HDHCHT SD
Hardtop
FM Frame Rails in garage to be installed
Torsen LSD
PS

6UL, Azenis(replace with 225/45 RS2 when they burn out)

12.25" front, 12.75" rear ride height
-1.9* front, -1.8* rear camber, 4.3* caster

The car feels too "crashy"(no compression, lotsa rebound). I want to have the shocks rebuilt by bilstein and use the stiffer front springs to remove some oversteer in higher speed turns. Also ADD a little caster because it feels a little limp-wristed
I may need to raise the car a bit too, to eliminate some bumpstop riding. Possibly shorten shocks during rebuild process...

Yeah, sure you do, chief.

Edit: Koni races are yellow. Easiest way to tell the two apart is the presence of a 4th snap-ring perch on the race that's much lower than the standard group of 3.

FM new springs
illuminas
fm sways.
16*7 with V700s.
250hp
front: camber 0.8 toe in 1/16 camber 5
rear: camber 1.5 toe in 1/16

What should be next for a quicker autox?

I seem to be stuck at 1.5 secs off FTD, who is usually in SM2 with me?

Turn in is no problem, its all about the rear end wag and my right foot!

I am thinking......
more camber?
rail brace?
Wider tires?
