The bronze Okuyama-RS Aizawa brace may not be suitable for your car; I have one, and it includes an integral brake stopper (the main reason I brought it). Obviously, its for a rhd car.

A possible problem with brake stopper kits coming to light here is that they may cause the early demise of old brake master cylinders, so watch out for leaks if fitting these.

Just went to R.S. Aizawa on Friday. I had a blast there! It's a family run shop, and they're all really nice, even brought out the demo car (2.1L blue IRTB'd beast) and had a blast! Will do a better writeup when I'm back in the states, but suffice to say, it's a must go if you visit Tokyo.

RS Aizawa is located in Zama, Kanagawa, which is out in the boonies. They were kind enough to pick me up at the nearest train station, sagamino, and took me to their shop.

While at the shop, they showed me around, and I picked up a used set of Toda Cams and HKS Cam Gears from them. Chairman Hiroshi Aizawa, President Nobuhiro Aizawa, and their Engine Builder, Mr. Chonan, made me coffee and sat down just to shoot the breeze with me.

Chairman Aizawa scolded us US Roadster guys for not being diligent in swapping out the suspension bushings. He likened them to the joins on our body, and when I told him that people out here don't do it because they're not sexy mods, everyone laughed out loud.

I asked them if Miata piston rings were weak, because mine went at 110k miles. Mr. Chonan said that they're not weak, and it's silly to run the motors so long without a rebuild, as in Japan the O/H the engine every 50K KMs.

They also have a used parts corner upstairs, on the 2nd floor. They had a bunch of cool used parts, but they were mainly too big. Some old school Motec managed ITBs were there for 900 bucks, as well as MS 4pt roll bar for 200 bucks, and Garage Vary Fiberglass headlight vent for like 30 bucks. I would've bought more but didn't have any room so I just picked up what looks to be a beatrush tranny/subframe brace, but instead of being gold, it's blue like cusco parts. Any one have any idea who made that piece?

They also gave me a couple of keychains and a R.S. Aizawa windshield sticker as well as a sticker that had a roadster silhouette "tuned by R.S. Aizawa" sticker!

I also learned that Mr. Aizawa's been in the industry for close to 50 years, and the demo roadster was the one used for the sounds in Initial D.

As I was waiting to get picked up by my aunt who recently moved nearby, Chairman Aizawa asked me, "Wanna see the democar?" and sent someone to go grab it. It sounded SWEET. I was surprised to see a radio in the car, and it's really a work of art.

I've been to Spoon, Mugen, and the like in the past, but it was definietly the best experience I had at a shop! They're quality people, that Aizawa crew.

about an hour out of downtown tokyo by train. Their shop is not walkable. Take a taxi or let them know and they'll pick you up.
