Designed for the most serious competitors, the Karcepts ND Front Sway Bar Kit leaves no compromises on the table. Hundreds of hours of design time have gone into this kit utilizing CMM technology and FEA analysis. The end result is a 2016+ Mazda MX-5 Miata Front Sway Bar Kit that offers super quick adjustability, an enormous adjustment range, maximum stiffness with minimal weight, and an installation time of just 30 minutes (after the stock bar has been removed).

Center Section Recommendations: For an all around great performing bar, we recommend this 1.13" center section. It really hits a nice range of adjustment for this chassis. It can get close to the softness of the other conventional ND bars on the market, yet has the ability to sweep to a much stiffer range (something that is very necessary to provide speed in quick transitions). For SCCA CS trim vehicles, we recommend looking to our other listing for this same kit with the 1.07" bar, since you cannot upgrade the rear sway bar in CS that 1.07" bar tends to balance better with stock rear bar.

Brian's Application Notes: I admired and admired this setup but we did not start to carry it until I watched an STR competitor change both his front and rear sway bar settings BETWEEN RUNS at an SCCA event. Took him under a minute to change the rear sway setting, and just over a minute at the front...which is amazing. No other sway setup empowers you to change settings as fast as this setup in my experience, making this setup unique for the hardcore racers who want to dial their setup on the fly. Nonetheless, recommended for the REAL Racers, not the average daily driver because the solid links so good for racing can and will eventually rattle.
