What's the BBK Tony? RB? Oh and btw, best of luck with the car, the RF is sweet 8) The extra bit of power for the 2019 cars makes all the difference IMO.

That's a lot of mods.
Excellent.
I mentioned BBK on the Mx5 Forum and most said the brakes are ok as they are (standard) and BBK can have adverse affects on the handling due to increasing the mass weight on the front end. (it wasn't very friendly advice either and I was a little off put by the unfriendliness of the site, which is far inferior to the great RX8 site we have here.)
Anyhow I wanted uprated brakes and..
I picked up a set of Wilwood 4 pots from Freakyparts which are actually about 2 kilos a side lighter than the standard ones so win win .
Looking forward to seeing your mods on the car.

I frequent the mx5 forums...
Im on Nutz and Mighty5s..mxoc is abit oem and chrome.
Bbr ive read some interesting stories on forums about them, reputation is not what it used tobe...
And ive also read the ND has a very small battery so if left for longer than week will go flat and some early cars are known to have chocolate gearboxes so whilst in warranty i check mods wont invalidate.
Neighbours got 1 they love it. I want 1 too.

Very, very, nice Tony. Be interested to see how you get on with it after the 8.

As has been said, the gearboxes have been identified as a weak point. Several have failed in a very short time on the track, which doesn't bode well for longer term reliability of that part of the car, unfortunately.

^^ Yep, it's Paul Roddinson who's done a lot to discover the gearbox issues with his race cars. He's posted some scathing posts on Facebook about the issues and the reluctance of Mazda to acknowledge there is a problem. Paul's a nice guy too, see him quite a bit at Trackdays with his MX-5's.
