Thank you. You have rated this product.

One of the best performance upgrades for the Miata! Frame rails aid in additional rigidity to the aging Miata uni-body. V8 Roadsters' rails are made from laser cut 14 gauge mild steel to insure a precision fit and finished in heavy duty powder coat for longevity. Each rail has 11 fastening points and bolts to the chassis with the included 7/16th, Grade 8 zinc plated hardware.

Sean's Notes: Initially, I was not a believer in frame rails, but after years of track abuse I had to do something about my battered OEM frame rails. On the road, I was impressed with the immediate reduction in noise, vibration and harshness. I use nearly 800lb springs on my front coilovers and the rails make my Miata noticeably less busy and unsettled over train tracks and rough roads. For track or autocross cars without a roll cage and running stiff spring rates, these are a must have item!

Installation Notes:

Most factory frame rails have been dented and damaged over time. You may need to use a hammer to massage the rails into shape in order for the V8 Roadsters rails to fit properly.

Be careful when installing the passenger side frame rail, as the fuel lines and brake lines are located exactly where you will be drilling on the inside of the rail. Once you have mounted the passenger side frame rail you will also lose the original mounting locations to secure your hard lines. To mount the hard lines we'd recommend flipping the mounting bracket and using a self taping screw to secure the lines up and out of the way.

REVIEWS

I think that Brian Goodwin is the perfect example of what is good about the aftermarket industry. He is one of the few vendors that actually cares about his customers. He is the example that all companies should be trying to emulate when it comes to customer service. Not to mention his ingenuity and desire to improve on what is already a great car. I have never had a "bad" experience with Good-win-racing. Well, except for the constant temptation to SPEND MORE MONEY.

Just wanted to thank you guys for the great stuff and great work done on my MX5 club yesterday. I could feel the difference in sound and performance right away! It drives and corners awesome now. Can't wait to tell my friends about you guys. I'll be keeping an eye on your web site for other goodies and events as well. Can't wait to try my new suspension out on a auto cross. Will definitely be trying it on some twisty roads this weekend. Just can't wipe that smile off my face when driving this car. Thanks again guys!
