Garage Star Delrin door Bushings

Replace your old worn rubber bushings with Garage Star delrin door bushings. The Garage Star door bushings will help with chassis rigidity.

Drove the car today with the GarageStar door bushings and I have to say, these things are great!

One of the most immediate things I noticed with these was something I didn’t even have to drive the car to see; audio quality was massively improved with these. The stock 10AE Bose system doesn’t sound terrible anymore! Bass and mids are much cleaner and the bass hits are a lot punchier than before. Night and day difference in regards to that.

As far as drivability goes, I probably noticed the benefits of these the most while going over bumps and highway joints in the road. The doors definitely don’t move at all. These make that signature Miata wiggle and clunking sound virtually disappear over harsh bumps.

As far as NVH:

Noise: Quite the opposite of what I was expecting; a very noticeable reduction in noise overall. Mostly noticeable when going over bumps.
Vibration: Little to no additional vibration from what I could tell. My car is pretty well braced, so your mileage may vary here depending on what level of bracing is installed in your car.
Harshness: Little to no additional harshness. Yet again, this may vary depending on what you have installed in your car.
One thing I will say: these bushings are great for keeping your doors where they need to be while driving, but they are not a replacement for door bars or frame rails by any means. Not really sure where people were getting that idea to begin with, but for what they are, they do their job fantastically well.

Well done Ken!

Installed GarageStar’s new Delrin door bushings today. 4 Phillips screws and a quick test drive later, I’m pretty impressed.

They eliminated most(not all) of my “65mph shimmy” and make the car feel totally solid.

Tested with hardtop installed, bone stock 99 NB with 192k miles. NBs are significantly stiffer than NAs from the get go so I was surprised how effective these little pieces of plastic are.

In the grand scheme of chassis stiffeners, these are pennies compared to all the other options and more effective than all the shock tower bars, Cannon Braces and lower control arm tie bars I’ve ever tried.

Hit up Garage Star to get yours.

I just installed these today on my NB1 daily driver, and I couldn’t be more impressed! Cabin noise is greatly reduced over rough terrain, my car no longer creaks when entering a driveway (I could literally watch my door gap separate prior), and I can affirm that the audio quality has improved with my BOSE/Clearwater setup – much less vibration with lower frequencies. The doors now close with an affirmative clunk that is reminiscent of higher dollar luxury cars.I also test fit them on a few other NA/NB prior to my final install, no need for sanding or modification. If you are experiencing any issues, it is likely that your steel cup has been damaged or bent in your car’s lifetime. Like mentioned earlier, hand tighten to snug, close the door a few times, and cinch it down.Absolutely worth every penny. Hands down one of the best dollar for dollar modifications available for our cars.Great work Ken!!

Garage Star Stainless Steel Frame Rails

The Garage Star stainless steel frame rails slide over the factory frame rails and stiffen the cars chassis. Over time the factory rails are get damaged over speed bumps, jacking the car from the factory frame rails and mishaps on the race track. With the Garage Star frame rails we designed the bottom to be flat so for lowered and slammed car it wouldn't catch over speed bumper and sharp angled driveways. We also put plenty of drain holes so dirt and water doesn't collect between the factory frame rail and the Garage Star frame rails.
The Garage Star fame rails are made from 14 gauge stainless steel and comes with stainless mounting hardware.

Installation takes about 2.5-3 hours. You will need a drill (to drill holes for the frame rails) and sheers (to trim factory fuel rail bracket) Fuel rail bracket will use the stock mounting locations.
When installing the frame rails no welding is required. Some factory frame rail might need to be repaired before installing the frame rails.

Price $130 plus shipping

A little about the product.

Open the hood of your Roadster and have someone step on the brakes. You will witness the firewall flexing and the entire brake master cylinder assembly moving forward. This flexing hampers braking performance and results in a soft brake pedal.

The GarageStar Brake Master Brace creates a bridge between the firewall, master cylinder and shock tower, eliminating firewall flex and allowing the driver to regain maximum braking force and increased pedal stiffness. The Brake Master Brace is formed from steel and is powdercoated in a black finish.

Fits Miatas using factory air box and using Randell cowl or Racing Beat intakes

Just got back from a NASAAZ Time Trials weekend. It was raining almost the entire day Saturday, and Sunday was on and off. The only difference on my car from the last track event was I changed from ATE superblows to rbf600 and put on this brace.

I could write a lengthy review, but I'll try to keep it short. Pre-brace, I found myself losing brake pressure/feel, due to either a culmination of fluid heating up, pads, or the whole assembly moving foward under hard braking.

This works as it solved almost all my issues. Pretty much constant brake pedal feel the entire day under hard braking. Granted, due to the improved feel, I locked up the brakes a few times since my mind said "this is where it USED to require more pressure" but my foot said "aint nobody got time for that!"

Great product!

Garage Star Brake Master Brace - Buy it. My pedal felt firmer, but not over-firm to where it was tiring to depress all day. The thing I was most impressed with was the consistent pedal feel all day. Every single session and every single lap the brake pedal felt exactly the same into every corner, something I had not experienced with this car before. Because it's a 95M it has an ABS unit, and despite having the unit disabled, it still causes a mushy pedal sometimes toward the end of a track day. Not so with the master brace. I did not bleed the fluid between October and now, so the pedal feel had to have been due to the brace. Buy one, you won't be disappointed.
