2001-05 Miata (Intended Application)

Our testing has shown that each model of 2001 Miata that we have driven has shown a tendency to power "oversteer" at low speeds. (The models tested include a base model with a 5-speed transmission, a LS model equipped with the 6-speed transmission and Sport Suspension package, and the LS model equipped with replacement KONI shocks.) Each car exhibited a tendency to oversteer at low speeds (under 40MPH) upon acceleration. Inquires with Mazda have failed to identify any specific changes to the 2001+ Miata chassis that might account for this handling trait.

As a result, these findings led us to develop an even larger front tubular sway bar for the 2001-05 Miata. The use of this larger bar (and retaining the stock rear bar) has neutralized most of this oversteer condition at low speeds, and allowed the Miata to exhibit a small amount of understeer at higher speeds. The use of the Racing Beat rear sway bar would negate the benefits this larger bar, and is not recommended. While the smaller 1.125" OD tubular bar we also offer can be used on the 2001-05 applications, we recommend the use of the larger bar.

Specifications

This Racing Beat Miata tubular sway bar is 1.25" OD (3/16" wall) as compared to the 1999-00 bar of 1.125" OD (3/16" wall). This version of our Miata sway bar is supplied with a heavy-duty, cast aluminum bar clamps, replacement urethane bushings, Prothane bushing grease, and detailed installation instructions.
