We offer Miata brake pads for street, autocross and track use. Despite all the advertising nonsense out there, there is no free lunch with Miata brake pads and you should pick a Miata brake pad that matches your planned use and understand that as the pad bite increases, so will the dust and noise potential of that pad. If your use is street or autocross then pick from among our Hawk HPS, Mintex, factory pads, Greenstuff and Wilwood Q pads. If your use is track only, then look to our Miata Hawk Black, Blue, Porterfield R4 and Wilwood E Pads. If you need a dual purpose pad that can handle street, autocross, and light track use, and understand that the compromise comes with more dust and noise potential in street use than our dedicated street pads listed above, then look to our Hawk HP Plus, Wilwood Smart pads, and Porterfield R4S. See the descriptions of each Miata brake pad below for more information.
Brian, Thank you!!! We last spoke in November about some upgrades for my 2011 MX5 soft top. It has finally warmed up in NE Ohio and two relaxed weekends of wrenching on my car were well worth the effort. Installation of the RoadsterSport ceramic coated street header was straight forward and took under 8 hours, including a 40 minute test drive and cleanup of the garage! Combined with the RoadsterSport Q exhaust, the sound is fantastic and the increased torque, horsepower and performance make it a blast to drive. The addition of the Cobalt shock tower brace, Racing Beat sway bars, ILM front power train and X braces really enhanced the ride - minimal body roll, comfortable and very responsive. Your recommendations really helped transform the car from great to fantastic. Your research, product development and candid recommendations make you a standout in the industry. My only questions are - what's next on my list .... And how soon will my wife want the same upgrades on her 2012 PRHT ... Again, thank you!!! Charles G
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.
