Project STR Gets Coil-Overs

Update by John Rogers to the Mazda MX-5 Miata project car
Apr 22, 2010

KW Variant 3 coil-overs are race-proven--and they just look cool.
And here's the front installation.

Now that we’d fitted the MX-5 with proper race tires and wheels, it was time for the next step in the project: coil-overs.

We opted to use KW Variant 3 coil-overs for several reasons. This package provides independently adjustable compression and rebound settings, with a large effect on low-speed travel. KW coil-overs have a proven track record: They’ve been winning races in Europe for years, and they’re included on the OE suspensions of the Viper ACR as well as select AMG Mercedes vehicles. And man, do they look cool, too.

These units offer several adjustment points, including ride height, so we now have plenty of options to dial in the package.
