Nov 3, 2003 update to the Mazda Miata project car

Attention

Our Miata is finally getting some much-needed attention. For one, it’s finally riding on some stiffer springs: 350 lbs./in. up front and 250 lbs./in. out back. The Eibach coils came from Ground Control, and company owner Jay Morris said these rates should work for our application. Our main objective was to get the car up off the bumpstops without going back to stock ride height. (The whole two-magazine thing has kept us a little busy during the past year, so the Miata was unfortunately pushed to the back burner.)

BSI Racing handled the installation and subsequent suspension alignment while we were at the SEMA Show, and so far things seem much better. We’ll post more on the car—and some pictures—later in the week, as the car first needs a bath.

We have also realized that our interior could use a facelift. Nothing stands out as totally wrong, but things could use a little cleaning and detailing. How many other Miatas out there could also use a mild restoration?
