  2. Wheels, Tyres, Suspension & handling/etc
    Hey All, I'm currently driving a 2007 NC 2.0 Sport. It has been lowered using Meister R Zeta CRD coilovers and the handling is pretty damn good. The stability through corners is insane along with the grip and traction too. However the turn in is pretty dull, the steering sensitivity in general...

    Hi Guys, My mark 1 Mx5 is mostly used on track but I also use if for summer time driving around the South west. probably about a 60/40% split or maybe 70/30% It's Rotrex supercharged with 275bhp and 208lbft torque. I am currently running 15x7 rota grids with 195/50/15 Yokohama A048 semi...

    Hey all, I'm looking for a new set of tyres for my NC1 Mx5 to improve the atrocious lack of grip currently. The car has Pirelli P Zero Nero GT's on it (which came brand new with the car around 4000 miles ago). To put it bluntly, they're crap. Massive understeer in all conditions and extreme...

    Don't let your pride and joy be off the road for more than the weekend! thinking of renewing your suspension shortly due to rusty sub frames, knackered bushes or worn out rubber but put off by the time and energy required to build up a fresh set? Don't be, buy my fully refreshed built up...

  8. Your driving stories
    Sorry to hear more about unexpected handling problems with the MX5. We bought a 93 MK1. It looked great but I didn't give it much of a look over underneath. Within a very short time of owning it, my wife was driving round a roundabout when it unexpectedly tried to swap ends, luckily she...
  9. Problems
    Hi Guys, I've picked up my "new" MX5 a few days ago. All was fine during test drive, but with no place to do more than 30 (garage right in middle of city) I only noticed these issues recently: Handling is fine up to about 40. At 60+ the car is wandering about, and feels really unstable. I...
  10. Wheels, Tyres, Suspension & handling/etc
    Hey all, so far the little 5 has been quite a surprise in the handling department, very able for such a cheap car and quite predictable. It's a good starting point. Now my car doesn't have matching shocks all round so this can't be helping the balance of the chassis. the rear shocks were...
  11. Problems
    Guys, Have owned my 2004 NB for just over a year now and have always felt the handling to not be what it should be. It feels as if i'm driving with the wheels nuts loose which of course their not,and if the car gets into a rut in the road it really feels unsettled and i find myself driving...

    Before you look at the print out here are a few details about the car: 1994 1.8 NA 12" & 12/5" F&R Centre to arch ride height = 120mm & 130mm Floor to pinch weld. 15x7 205/50/15 Yokohama Advan AD08R NB coilovers with NB top mounts. I think that's all the info that is relevant here. I went...
  13. Problems
    Hey all. OK, so I've had my S-VT for a couple of months now and I love it. But it often feels as if its about to swap ends, at any given speed. I don't remember my last NB being like this. It's hard to describe, but the car constantly feels like its dancing, not keying into the road at all.Not...
  14. Wheels, Tyres, Suspension & handling/etc
    If anyone has done it, I can't find 'em. I have wishbones/arms waiting for bushes and REALLY would like to reach a decision for a fast road car. Everyone that has carried out this work has gone with poly (cheap and non) and of course swears by them once fitted (funny how a job that...

    So what's the general consensus on ARBs and strut braces for a Mk1 5 then guys? Are they a cheap performance enhancer, or a cheap ticket to the hedge?
  16. Wheels, Tyres, Suspension & handling/etc
    I had a track day at blyton park last Sunday after nedski sorted my geometry and I put a set of kumho tyres on to replace my pirelli's which weren't worn but old. Just want to say it improved handling by a huge amount, especially in the wet afternoon, I'm not the best driver in the world but the...
