A trailer hitch with a difference. There are a few hitches out there, but how many of them add only 11 pounds to your car? And have been run through FEA (Finite Element Analysis) software to ensure the design is strong enough? Ours has!
Made of laser cut pieces that are bent, welded and powdercoated, this is the only hitch available that's designed with weight and intended use as the major design goals. You can tow a small trailer (say, tires and tools) to the track. Once you're there, pull out the ball mount and the parts left on your car weigh only 11 lbs - all mounted low. As an added bonus, it's all easy to install with no drilling.
If you already have a ball mount or have accessories you want to use with the hitch, it's also available with a 1.25" receiver attachment instead of the ball mount for the same price. As an extra bonus, the receiver incorporates an SCCA-spec tow hook just in case things go a bit wrong on the track. Both the ball mount or the receiver attachment can be quickly and easily removed from the hitch, leaving no visible sign and minimal weight gain.
It's rated for a 1000 lb trailer and 100 lb tongue weight - which is more than you should ever tow with a Miata. Our FEA testing ensures the light weight doesn't affect strength. In fact, it's strong enough to hang your Miata from - although we do ask that if you try this, please send us a picture. We can't figure out how to pick up the car without damaging the nose.
Fits 2006-13 models only, both power retractable hard top and soft top models. Includes a hitch pin, but not a ball. The ball mount option uses a ball with a 3/4" shank. The hitch clears both stock and FM exhausts just fine as well as most aftermarket parts, but if you have a custom setup with a particularly large or rearward muffler there may be clearance problems. The ball mount will clear the rear valence of the factory body kit although there will be light contact. Please check the pictures in the instructions to get an idea if it will fit your car.
