Has anyone ever tried the JIC Magic FLT A2 coilovers on their roadster? I am thinking of purchasing a set. Any feedback, info or opinions would be greatly appreciated!

They are FANTASTIC on the track but a little rough on the street depending on the tolerance of your back and stomach. They were my first choice of coilovers along with the Ohlins.
Yes, I intend to make this a daily driver. So stress on the back and stomache is not going to do. I need something that is comfortable and still have some solid dampening/handling.

Any suggestions?

yeah, i'd take them over my Stance, but i've heard they are hard to get repaired since a lack of local support.
I've never heard of Stance. What is Stance? Who makes it? Why did you go with this product? Thanks.

I'd stay away from it personally, until they get the rebound dampening figured out. Which begs the question of why they didn't get it figured first.

BTW, I will no longer be posting over there. Apparently, I don't have enough posts to make an arguement,lol.

I saw a JIC-equipped miata at a local autocross last weekend and it looked GOOD. VTECMX5 was the lucky dog that got a ride in it and he grinning ear-to-ear when they came back.

Keep in mind the JICs are a track/race ready set-up. No compromises. As far as rebuilding them. I'm sure Brian Goodwin can help you out when the time comes. --->>.http://www.good-win-racing.com/mazda/miata/21-1065b.html

I'll continue to preach the Tein Flexes for daily/mountain/occasional track/ use. VERY livable. Even the Koni Yellows (race and sport) are more then enough for street use

FM seems to love them. Did you read the Car and driver Superfour challenge from last year? The writer of the article was super impressed with the handling and the comfort level.

Thanks fwdtamiya. I left honda-tech.com for a reason.
Whoops just realized I missed a word in my sentance up there #-o

The only reason i'm still on HT is basically to chat with my friends from the meets, I really should just stop posting on HT though, it just causes me grief :lol:

As far as rebuilds go, i know that Road/Race Engineering (mulerized) does a lot of work with JIC's and if they do not rebuild them, they must have close relations with JIC because i know they can get custom valved ones. This could be a possibility if JIC tech support and service is as bad as it is rumored to be.
