Default Teaser: M-Tuned 10.9" Rear Brake Kit

Just finished installing the M-Tuned Rear Brake kit on my personal Miata as a quick test. The kits are 99% ready to go. Just have to machine one small spot to allow some extra clearance due to caliper casting differences.

Hope to be shipping by NEXT week.

Our Web Price for this kit will be $109 + Shipping. Will include all washers, bolts and brackets needed for the installation.

Hope you like the pics and don't mind the teaser. Car looks great with the 11" Corrado Kit on the Front and the 10.9" Miata Sport Kit on the Rear.

what rotors will this kit be using? miata sports? (impossible to find here, unless you want to pay $300 a set) Will they be ventilated or is the rear caliper not big enough to run ventilated rear rotors?

Are you sure they were not quoting the price of the regular rear discs? That price is successfully low.

i said, "u sure that is the Sport edition, i know they had more than one size." he said, "i see the standard brakes as well, but this is for the sports."

i will buy a set to verify, and if any of you want them, let me know, i looked at kragen/orielys site they have them for 46$

NAPA now sells rear sport rotors for the mid $30 range. I'm using them in this picture.
They are no longer priced in the $300 range.

hell, I already pay $60 for a pair of 1.8 non-sport fronts. The corrado set ran me $160 for a set. If this kit would utilise a set of more commonly available and cheaper rotors I would be all over them

I already have a 1.8 proportioning valve on my 1.6, would it balance out if I went with the front and rear upgrade you sell?

Wow.. Most people pay $25-35 a piece for the Corrado rotors.

The Miata sport rotors are an inexpensive rotor available at most major Autoparts stores for in the $30-$35 Range. I have researched to no end and can't find a 4x100 rotor which will fit on our cars and with our caliper which is in the 10.75"-10.9" range like the Miata Sport.

Can't use a ventilated rotor as it won't fit within our caliper bracket. Heck, even the Miata sports where a hair different in spacing, but we had the room to make it work.

I will have the web guy update the site next week to add it as an available product!

The Rear Kit certainly helps balance for the 11" Corrado front kit. You have the proportioning valve so you can even tweak your setup.
I drove my 2000SE all day with both of our kits on and I love it. My GF was getting fed up of me doing highspeed braking, but I told her it was R&D

So what does a full kit run? Just need 1.8 caliper brackets all around?

Marc, have you thought about an entire "package"...

Front 11" kit: $99
Rotors: $60
Rear 10.9" kit: $109
Prop Valve: $70
Stainless Lines: $110
Green-Stuff's or Hawk HPS: $140
Fluid: $10
Total: $598
Now add shipping... you're talking $650!

Kits from you, rotors from Napa, valve from FM, lines from AA, fluid and pads from Good-Win... you could corner the market by throwing it all in one box for about $600 shipped with a good set of instructions for NOOBs... just a thought.
