Lol. Well you should document to show us how easy/hard this is. If this is a reasonable brake upgrade then why not. If you just spent alot of money on brakes and kept those gay wheels. I will kill you.

Doubt it, practically looks like he photoshopped them into his 16" wheels. Pictures of the setup without the wheel? And I can a Ferrari F50 caliper and disc inside a wheel, the bracket is always the hard part, what are your plans? Any pictures of the caliper next to the miata hub?

The MS3 has a really nice caliper, and the rotor is plenty big. I wouldn't want a rotor that heavy on my Miata.

I believe the MS3 caliper has a 57mm piston (going from memory here, not looking it up). That's roughly equivalent to a 38-42mm four-piston caliper. Put it on a 320mm rotor with a 60mm tall pad, and you get 77% more torque at the wheels for every pound on the brake pedal. Might as well just cap the rear lines and send both m/c outputs to the front. (Before actually does that, they better look up sarcasm on Wikipedia.)

Tons more front brake eh? Will stop worse than ever when you drive the car, but will look good parked. Or when pulled out of the ditch you could not avoid since you could not stop properly.

The rotor size is not an issue IMO.
I would keep stock size discs if a 4 pot caliper coud be fit to it.
