Nice writeup on the ride-height lowering - using the lowering springs. However, didn't I recently read somewhere that if you use the stock shock/strut tubes for lowering the car --that they don't last very long at all?

I see. So anyway, what size tires/wheels are those VX's? According to this website: http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html if I change my current setup of 175/70/13's to 185/75/14's, my speedo will be underexagerrated by 6MPH, therefore increasing (to my knowledge) my effective MPG. Of course I'll have a slightly larger contact patch with the 185's. But probably not enough to make a difference. As long as I can find a lightweight setup I'll go for it. As it stands right now I only run with +2 PSI above MFG recommendations. Let me know how your car rides with stiffer suspension COMBINED WITH high-inflated tires. Thx.

Car runs perfectly, nice and tight. Anyway, I think the VXs are 175/70/13, but not exactly sure. The HXs are the 14s, both are good, with the HXs you can run the insight LRRs though, so yay.

And with the insight tires at 165/65/14, you have the same diameter as the 175/70/13's. No underexaggeration!.

sorry, I meant to express my definite WANT for the underexagerration. As long as I can run a larger diameter setup I'll be running a higher MPH at a lower RPM (even though my speedo won't show it). I DO want this. Call it a cheap way to change my effective gearing since I've got the larger circumferance, taking longer to complete a single revolution in a given gear. I want this. I'm sure I'm not the only one who does.
