    So yesterday I was feeling extra inspired to cram my MS Strut bar in the car because I couldn't stand not seeing the gold against the green. The 1 problem with cruise control in Miata's is you cant run a strut bar because the cable gets in the way and the only way to solve this problem is to relocate it and the only way to relocate it is by removing the stock air box and running an aftermarket setup. So I put the strut bar in and was able to fit the cruise control but theirs a lot of pressure on the cable so I need to do some modifications to the Cruise Control bracket. But do enjoy some MS goodness!

    Also was able too get a nice picture of the wheel and switches. There is this weird foamy sticker on the wheel where the horn button ring goes so could I use goo gone to get it off?

    And very soon we will have a nice stance for the BRG coilovers are en-route.

    Looks really nice! Personal opinion is that the "stance" is almost perfect too, I would not lower it much (if any).

    Harry I completely agree I love how it looks. Especially with the Rally car style appeal with the big Cibies I really dont want to lower it that much maybe half an inch and get a nice Street/Autox alignment.

    Yesterday I received a few goodies. 1 of them being a super clean ARC intake pipe. I love how it looks and I feel for engine bay mods I am done....for now. Also the butt dyno says yes to more torque, I for sure feel a difference coming out of corners and in the top end.

    BIG UPDATE!!

    So over the years and the 4 Miatas I have owned I have had quite the combination of suspension setups ranging from KW, DIY Bilsteins , and even NOS MazdaSpeed Shocks and springs, but this setup takes the cake. I decided to go with Ohlins because they're the 1 coilover that has eluded me when it came to a good deal and I finally found my good deal so I jumped on it.

    I was so blown away at the quality everything was nicely packed and in individual boxes I got a bunch of stickers and 6 "Ohlins" plaques to put on the car but I need to figure where to put just 1.
    8299718C-A701-4EAB-8D7D-9BB87B40465A.jpg

    They came disassembled which didn't bother me because the instructions were very straight forward and simple. My BRG has ABS and even though a limited amount of miatas have ABS I was happy to see that there was the ABS line bracket.

    58FE57B5-70E8-42ED-B517-6DE11AD148F2.jpg

    Along with the Ohlins I am reusing my old RB rear sway bar and Cusco front sway bar with RB end links all around.

    This is its stance, I really grew to love the stock look and wanted to keep it look factory and ever since this will be a vintage build I didn't want to be that low. I only corrected the weird monster truck rear end it had so now it sits flat. Now the BRG feels like a track god every corner is on rails and is seriously amazing. No body roll at all in the corners and the best part is thanks to the shocks DFV system (Dual Flow Valving) a speed bump feels like stock suspension but a aggressive corner will feel as stiff as can be.

    Really happy with how it is coming along more updates on the way shortly.

    Looks nice, now I'm really eager to get my car on the road with the Ohlins.

    You adjusted them according to the user manual that came with the Ohlins?
    How much pre-load did you use?

    I actually gave Ohlins a call and asked if they had any info on what the preset height looked like and I told them what I wanted to do. They told me to tell the dealer the height you're looking for and they preset it when they sent me the kit! and for dampening I am at the middle setting it is honestly perfect for driving on public roads.

    I need to see what you're talking about with the Ohlins. Classy not slamming it, but I'd lower it just a tad, lol.

    I do want to lower it an inch but I love the OEM height and speed bumps stand no chance against stopping me. But they truly are an amazing coilover super direct and comfortable.
