2006-15 MX-5 Race - Front Sway Bar
Although originally designed for the RX-8 application, this front bar can be used on a 2006-15 MX-5 NC Miata when a BIG front bar is required.
Racing Beat-designed sway bars reduce chassis roll during cornering and increases your car's sensitivity to steering inputs, thereby improving maximum cornering power. Substantial engineering effort, select steel alloys, and precise manufacturing processes are combined to produce top performance components.
As presently manufactured, this MX-5/RX-8 Tubular design sway bar utilizes a one-hole end link attachment point on either end.
All Racing Beat sway bars are finished with a distinctive, red powder coating that provides a smooth, glossy protective layer. You can be assured of many years of superior handling performance with these proven bars!
2006-15 MX-5 Miata Track/Race Application
As compared with the stock 21mm bar, the Racing Beat 32mm (1.25") front sway bar is a substantial upgrade over the stock bar. Each bar is supplied with replacement urethane bushings, bar clamps, and Prothane grease. Not recommended for street use - see PN 54108.
2004-11 RX-8 Application
The diameter of the RB front tubular bar is 1.25" (32mm) x .1875" wall thickness, as compared to the stock 1.05" (27mm) x .134" wall thickness front bar. An additional feature of the front bar is a pair of OEM style "stoppers" to prevent the bar from sliding sideways in the bar bushings during heavy cornering effort. Each bar is supplied with replacement urethane bushings, bar clamps, Prothane grease and installation instructions.
During test sessions using our Racelogic VBox GPS data acquisition system, we recorded noticeable handling improvements after the installation of the Racing Beat sway bar set. Using the stock wheel/tire/ combination on our 2004 RX-8, we recorded the following cornering forces:
Stock Bars: .86-.87g
RB Bars: .89-.90g
