Thank you. You have rated this product.

Saves 3 lbs PER SIDE! This full assembly is 10.1 lbs compared to the factory 13.1 lbs front rotor.

These "Motorsport" 2-piece rotors include custom lightweight aluminum hats built for us by Wilwood combined with a premium grade rotor with high vane count for the greatest cooling and longest life under severe track use.

2-piece front rotor upgrade in the same size as the factory 11" rotor for a "drop in" fit for 2016 MX5s. These rotors work with the factory front calipers AND our own 4-piston and 6-piston high performance caliper kits.

NOTE for Club model Brembo calipers: These rotors are designed first and foremost to fit the standard factory caliper and our own caliper kits. These rotors WILL fit with the Brembo caliper but may need a bit of grinding on the caliper and/or the brake pad's backing plate so they clear this rotor's center hat. We ask that you ONLY attempt to fit these rotors with the Brembo caliper if you're comfortable with adjusting clearances slightly with a grinding tool.

ROTOR TYPE: Slotted
Uses a premium 72-vane friction ring compared to the factory's 50 vane standard rotor for superior performance in competition and track use:
* Greater cooling
* Less Distortion/warping
* Longest life
* Greater consistency

Price is for TWO rotor/hat assemblies

REVIEWS

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.

Thanks for making this work and providing great customer service! I had a full weekend with the install, but man was it worth it. The flywheel was such a good choice. I can't believe how much easier rev-matching down shifts are. The ACT is surprisingly easy to live with, even with the engagement point very low. I'll tackle that when it stops raining. Thanks again for making this happen this weekend.
