Thank you. You have rated this product.

Here is what we use on our own racecar, using different rate Swift springs for different events and surface conditions. These are revalved by OHLINS for higher rate springs, and we add one set of front and one set of rear SWIFT RACE SPRINGS (NOT SHOWN IN PICTURE)

Tell us what rates you want...otherwise we ship 12kg front, 8kg rear. Note normal Ohlins kit is 8 inch long front springs and 7 inch rear, for much higher rates in the race kit like 11/7 the normal is 7 inch front and 6 inch rear. Some customers running 13kg and more report lowering more than two inches required 6 inch front springs (softer 11kg front will do over 2 inches of lowering with a 7 inch front spring). If in doubt try 7 inch front and 6 inch rear. SWIFT SPRINGS NOT SHOWN IN THIS PICTURE..but included in addition to the standard springs. Again, this RACER kit is also upgraded with ULTRA LOW WEIGHT Swift Coilover Springs (Front springs just 3 pounds each, rear springs just 2 pounds each!!).

Updated product for 2010, super light-weight design with a majority of the parts in aluminum and on top of that all shocks have proven through extensive corrosion tests according to ISO 9227. The end result is a 2-year warranty on all of the Ohlins products - worldwide. Ohlins has long lead the way for suspension design in the world of motorsports from Motorcycles to Indy Cars. This package comprises aluminum bodied, mono tube design shocks, with 30 clicks of adjustment.

This is a great choice for the dual purpose user who wants a setup for track and/or the autocross course. See our Forum Installation Instruction section for notes and pictures on install.

Brian's Application Notes I have used Ohlins for decades in my motorcycles and have always been pleased with the ability of this brand to provide both great handling and great ride quality and their NC RX8 Miata coilover kit continues this tradition. The ride is amazing for these spring rates...we set top time of day in our local autocross on our first day out with these installed....simply amazing. One of the great features includes INDEPENDENT control of height and spring pre-load!

INSTALLATION NOTES You must carefully follow our forum instructions, particularly with regard to the need for spacers and longer 40mm rear bolt for the lower rear shock connection (5mm longer than stock bolt with about the same amount of spacer to remove arc of travel of the rear so it is much more linear and clears the narrow race springs). NOTE with Race kit you end up with TWO COMPLETE SETS OF SPRINGS because Ohlins will re-valve for us yet they won't delete the standard springs from the kit.

Track Tested by the entire Good-Win Racing Team! Not every Miata can run 1:39 lap times at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, and OHLINS Coilovers are a vital ingredient of that great result!

After reading many other positive reviews on both the GWR and Miata forums I finally decided to buy this product. My main concern for many months was whether or not I was up to the task of installing the header. But with the excellent instructions on Brian's forum as well as several Miata forum threads it turned out easier than I expected. After receiving notice that the header would arrive on a Friday afternoon, I began the disassembly process. After about 3 hours I had the stock manifold out. Later that afternoon the new catted header arrived right on schedule. And it is a thing of beauty. I opted for the stainless version. Installation on Saturday morning took another 3 hours, although I could have shaved some time off of that but I was actually enjoying the process of double checking torque values and cleaning up my engine compartment. I already have the GWR catted midpipe, so that connection was a snap. I put everything back together, reconnected my battery, and went for a drive. NO CODES! Nice throaty sound with my RSII muffler, and a significant boost in power and low/mid torque. Another happy camper here. I since have added a M-E tune and I feel I have realized all of the gains that Brian has achieved on his 2012 project Miata. I've put several hundred miles on my Miata since the install with zero problems. This is the car that Mazda should have built all along. Thanks Brian.
