I'd be very interested to see you test the MeisterCRD coilovers at least - they look good on paper - but I'd be much happier hearing they had approval from Goodwin than anyone else in the Miata game!
Not at all certain if they're popular enough that it's worth it compared to other cheaper options, but they just might be the exact kind of comparison you'd want for the Koni set-up.
Yep, I didn't want to name MeisterCRD before late today when we wrapped up talks with them for testing on this project but that just happened and we will be testing BOTH their ZetaCRD and ClubRace coilovers in this project!
Since day one on this project the emails have been pouring in about us testing some low cost coilovers and this MeisterCRD brand has been named in about 80% of those requests, the overwhelming choice of the curious NC owners out there watching this project. So, we listened, we have been talking with them, and this week they agreed to have us test both these setups in the project.
In sum, we will start with higher rate RoadsterSport Springs getting designed this week on the KONI Sport shocks, see if we can get the win with that setup first. Then move to testing ZetaCRD in this project, answer the question again on whether we can get our Top Time of Day result with that setup, and see how much faster that gets us. Then load in their ClubRace setup and see how much further that takes us down the road in competitiveness. Excited to get this project racing.
