Thank you. You have rated this product.

DTC-30 ( W Compound Code):

DTC Stands for Dynamic Torque Control. DTC pads offer consistent feel and bite with smooth release and torque control characteristics.

The DTC-30 is the little brother to the popular DTC-60 track pad. The DTC-30 offers good friction even when cold, making it suitable for street/autocross, and it offers peak friction levels higher than the Porterfield R4. The DTC-30 can handle up to around 1,100 degrees F. That makes it suitable for light-duty track use (novice-level drivers and those on standard street tires).

Intermediate-level and up drivers and/or those on "Extreme performance summer tires" or better should look to the DTC-60 for a pad that can handle the more extreme temperatures that are associated with hard track use.

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.

Wanted to say thanks. The exhaust system fit perfectly, no drone at steady throttle, but a nice sound winding thru the gears. And it does sound a lot like my old Alfa. The Racing Beat lowering springs are just right. Appreciate the tech advice and the service.
