Have you guys seen these yet? 8.5" travel on all four corners in a Miata with just a 1" lift. Could be a start to a really fun toy. Has anyone used them yet?

A world where readily available long travel coil over kits rather than the short travel versions we get now is one I want to live in.

Can't say i'm interested, but i CAN say this is the first time i've ever thought "i wish Mazda had built a small station wagon off the Miata platform".  It took a rally suspension to prompt that. Go figure.

I believe they were announced today, so it's unlikely there's a lot of user data out there quite yet :)

I wonder what the rates are, and if they are intended to be used with swaybars or not.

Paco does offer extended sway bar end links for lifted cars and you can see sway bars in at least one of the pictures, so it's at least been considered.

I've thought about making similar mounts to be able to use easily rebuildable circle track shocks. For that price I'd probably just go with the Fox setup.

In reply to Keith Tanner :

Lol, realized that after I posted. Then sat around at work hoping that one or more of their testers posts here.

Hell, for that price, I'd buy new tires and hit as many events as I could in a 300 mile radius.
