MCA Blue Plus

What a day!

Thanks to the guys at Mufflers to the Max

First job was MCA Blue shock install. <insert RAVE REVIEW HERE>

Of course there was a 1 inch drop and a slight change to suggested rear click to remove some harshness. But the car is now so planted and it's lost it's super pitch and dive that 200000klm shocks had

Then there's the muffler. Super short rear muff changed to a single. Not loud at all but aurally superb.

The character of the car has changed so much. I think it's even better than my previous RHT with Ohlins DFV.

Loving the NC.

For about $11,500AUD so far. I couldn't ask for a bigger smile.


Origididge Check out that Stroke and Drooop!

Insert MCA Blue.

Mufflers to the Max ! Champions!  Check that old HIUGE Muffler.

New stealth Single.

 Ride height so far...

I still have the issue of my driveway having a spoeed bump and a hump. So I can't go too low.

But his still allows the RX8/NCEC suspension to work. Long stroke sus on these cars is designed for point to point awesomeness.

Huge thanks to M.Frener. Xmas Present coming.

Key trouble

Mazda NC Key Issue

I had 2 flakey keys that I was planning to replace this week.  

But... Flashing Key Indicator and no start.

Can't start with the key. We could actually push start.

I'll have to do that again to get to the dealer.

Then sus install...

MCA Blue

Murray Coote is a well know Rally Driver and MCA is a Ozzie Tuning Company now making great systems.

Proven in TIME Attack with the S13 Hammerhead.

Ordered... Blue for my street car with 11kg front /6kg rear for a bit of tail out fun.


While I wait...  for the ND but you get the idea.

Light re-fresh

Make the lights clear.

NC-X First Cruise

First post for the NC-Xtreme blog is all about the open air enjoyment.

My last NCEC was owner in 2010. That one was a 2009 RHT version.

This time things are a little cheaper with this 2006 Soft Top.The car is not concours perfect but it's a fun project and has already had a little TLC.

Sitting pretty in Surfers Paradise. Already enjoying the open air, sights and sounds.
