A Flyin' Miata exclusive!

FOX has been a suspension specialist for 40 years, and have won a huge range of motorsport events from the Paris-Dakar to the Indy 500. As a supplier to Ridetech, they've dominated Pro Touring recently. It's fair to say they know their way around shocks. They also understand the importance of proper suspension travel. Since they've also supplied shocks for the Ford Raptor, they also know how to build to an OE level of quality and durability. So, as you can imagine, we were pretty excited to work with them.

To develop them, we took measurements of the suspension's full range. FOX then designed a shock setup that would work throughout the whole range. This even went as far as a new front upper mount to accomplish what we needed. After an initial fitting and test at their facility in California, they brought their race trailer out to our local track and we spent two full days with a FOX engineer, three Miatas and two drivers to fine-tune the valving. This is the end result - a Miata suspension built from the ground up for us.

Our goal was for a high performance suspension that wouldn't punish on the street. We placed an emphasis on stability in corners, turn-in and body control combined with a very high level of grip. The adjustment was designed to primarily adjust the low speed rebound damping, which is mostly affected by body movements. You can adjust from a street setup to a hyper-aware track setup quickly and easily.

There are a lot of little details on these parts that aren't immediately obvious. The springs sit on a high density plastic ring that acts as a bearing, allowing the spring to rotate on the perch without the expense of a bearing. The internal washers are disc ground for high accuracy, giving more consistent behavior of the shock. Even the body of the shock is given Kashima coat, which is a superior form of hard anodizing to protect the shock under the worst conditions. Even the shocks are light - 40% lighter than a Koni.

We came up with two different spring setups. The Sport package is a good all-around setup. Think of it like a BMW M3: it's comfortable enough for all-day interstate road trips and very rewarding in the twisties. The turn-in is fantastic, making the car feel very nimble and eager to turn. With a spin of the knobs, the car is ready for hard track use. Spring rates are 375 in the front and 300 in the rear.

The Track package is more like a Porsche 911 GT3. The rates are 550 in the front and 450 in the rear. This setup is definitely firmer than the Sport package, but it's not punishing. Just firm. There's almost no body roll and the turn-in is spectactular. It's a very quick setup.

The kit includes four shocks, bumpstops, front and rear springs (main springs plus helpers) and new front upper mounts. You will have to reuse your existing rear mounts. Due to the front/rear spring rates, we recommend running less rear sway bar than you would normally.

Please note that the springs included may be silver or red. This makes no difference to function, it is simply due to availability of the colors. 1-Year Limited Warranty for the original customer against defects in materials and/or workmanship.

You need this! The most fun I've had pushing a car to the limit
I've been running this setup for a year now and its been amazing. No track days yet but I've done tons of *very* aggressive canyon carving and the car handles and turns-in like it can read my mind. The ride is firm and well controlled but still compliant enough for a daily. Washboards to big whoops, it never feels unsettled. The car stays much flatter in the corners. It's the best money I've spent upgrading any vehicle!

Absolutely worth the money - great addition to the NC
Using these on a NC race car, have had fantastic results so far this year! I switching from a high dollar triple adjustable shock to these, and have gone faster at every track! Fly'n Miata support with them has also been great!

Absolutely top shelf!
Very controlled overall. Much less roll than stock, with reasonable comfort. Very high quality stuff, that was well setup. Not too harsh, not too soft. Wife can still drive the car (2008 PRHT) to work. Still figuring out settings, but already immensely enjoyable! Worth every penny!

Couldn't be happier!
There is no replacement for suspension travel and the Fox have it in spades. I have the sport package springs and the car is exceptionally compliant over harsh surfaces while remaining firm and flat through the twisties. Very glad I chose these over the more common Ohlins which suffer from a universal design and lack of real travel. The Fox suspension is worth the investment!
