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 while Ohlins will re-valve for us, they won't delete the standard springs from the kit.
INCLUDES our delrin spring adapters for the rear that convert your factory rear top hat's spring perch to accept the smaller diameter race springs that ship with the Race kit. NOTE: these delrin adapters ONLY work on the later style of aluminum factory rear hat, not the black steel version factory offered on the early RX8. You can buy aluminum rear hats direct from Mazda if you have an early RX8 with steel rear top hats.
