Default rb 1.25 bar

For those of you with the 1.25 rb bar:

did you reinforce the end link flanges?
and do you autocross/track your car?

Yes. I reinforced with the RB blocks and brace. I have at least 15 track days without issue.

But not the end link tab support brackets, right?

Only this: http://www.racingbeat.com/Miata-1990...ars/54120.html

You mean the end link tab's on the control arms? No problem yet with my end link tab's tearing off.

Yep, that's what I was wondering about. A lot of stuff around saying the blocks on the subframe are necessary, but not many people talking about the end link tabs. Thanks for your response!

Do the SoCal guys run the blocks on their cars? I know they beat the living ---- out of theirs...

I doubt the SoCal guys even use the 1.25 bar. They likely use the 1.125.

My friend and I run a RB 1.25 front on an NA with 800/500 and koni race. No braces, no endlink tab reinforcement. No problems.
