Replaced the OEM springs with Flyin Miata springs, and 949 adjustable endlinks in place of the rear oem endlinks (I added 949 units to the front when I added a Racing Beat front sway a few weeks ago).  After a 17 mile ride home from where I did the install (a Garage Woolery tech day), both the front and rear are sitting a half inch lower than they were this morning.  Further settling to come in next few weeks.

With the help of a customer, Flyin Miata recently discovered that due to the length of our Bilsteins, an MSM drops a half inch less than do other NBs when the FM springs are added.  They've since added a note to that effect in the spring's description.  To fix this, it was suggested that a bit of coil be cut from the springs (from the more compressed end [proper terminology escapes me right now, it's 3 am]); and that this won't affect performance.  Since in my view the rear needs more drop than the front, I only cut the rear springs.

Eager to see the final position of the car.

Wash, mild detail, replaced oil pressure sender (two output aftermarket) with OEM, changed oil, fixed annoying problem with 9500ci.  Nice to get a few things off the list...  afro

Ordered this: http://www.flyinmiata.com/index.php?deptid=4536&parentid=0&stocknumber=02-10670  Inlet tube started popping off at AutoX.  Caused me to lose 2/4 runs at the last event...can't be having that.

The Flyin Miata throttle body elbow has been extremely reliable on my car.  I can't remember it ever coming loose.  I CAN remember the stock part coming off in traffic on I-95.  That was thrilling, and the start of my modding the car....and my financial downfall.   rolleyes
