if you have 100 spare dollars to spend on garbage coilovers, then you can donate 25 to the phorums for better advice!
not aimed at you ecto, just putting it out there for when people do read this and we do have a donation bar. hahaha

Honestly, I have racelands on my car, and they are not bad at all. They are definitely worth more than they cost, for sure. People love to hate on them, but people are just elitist assholes that think spending more on "quality" coil overs somehow makes them an authority on what constitutes a "proper" part.

Here is what you do, kids:
1. Buy race lands.
2. Buy these stickers...
http://www.ebay.com/itm/BILSTEIN-SHOCKS ... 2e&vxp=mtr
3. Put them on your racelands.

Congrats are in order, because meow you have exactly the same thing for a fraction of the cost. Never tell anyone you have racelands. Tell them you have Bilsteins.

Controversy cleared.

dgaf about limp dick shit talking, i have megans on my cressida for meow, so i've got no room to brag and this isnt a serious thread to compare quality. i always had koni yellows and gc's in mind for my miata though because i actually care about how it handles.

i will say that a majority of the people who cheap out on suspension are generally fuckwits and so most of the bad rep can be attributed to problems caused by bad installs. i've seen the returns bin in the stance warehouse and heard explanations for the damage and it's like whoa.

Fools, even when given guidance, will continue to be fools.

People hate on racelands because they do not want to be grouped with the fools.

Approach such people with caution, for they think that they might have found the elixir that alleviates their ailments. If you gotta try to not be grouped with the fools, then by goodness, your priorities lie not within good choices, but instead within the scope of foolish choices that are not as discoverable.

Although you put across a very interesting story, I must disagree. Not for the reason of being an 'elitist asshole' but more so that I drive my car more than to the shops or round car parks :p

I currently have racelands fitted to my NA8. I have ran HSD coilovers for several years meow. The difference is seriously night and day.. Im sure that if you were to drive the car here and there then it's totally fine.. take it out onto a track.. that is where you going to notice the difference in price.

The racelands to me feel just like OEM suspension but was the obvious reduction on travel. With lack of dampness adjustment it doesnt make for a firm ride. I personally think they are probably the worse coilovers I have ever used, fitted or even looked at and if your even a TINY part interested in how your car will perform (note: not lifestyle) then you would be wise to avoid this.

If your in here for the lows and the looks and the internet points then go right ahead.
Im waiting to rebuild some HSD's so I can get them swapped. As im also not impressed with HSD's - Great track suspension.. life span of a chocolate bunny out in the sun.

You obviously have a superb lack of taste.

So, what you are saying, is that racelands suck, and if anyone is interested in putting them on their car, then either they are ignorant, or they don't care about performance.

You have them on your car, so which is it for you? Are you just stupid, or do you not care about performance?

This is a classic "Learn from my mistakes, even though I did not learn from other peoples mistakes" scenario, otherwise known as the narcissists decree.

The fact remains clear; people rolling on racelands generally do not give a fuck about going to the track, regardless of the fact that Flyin' Miata sells racelands with a different spring rate and some fancy bumpstops, for basically double the price, without re-valving them or the ability to adjust dampening, which, according to you, is their downfall.

Face the facts son:
If you want to be taken seriously when you talk about performance...
1. Don't speak positively about racelands.
2. Talk about a somewhat respected product, and mention that it is not good enough for you.
3. Toss out some technical terms that are subjective, and try to quantify them using words that define your "feelings" about something.
4. Claim that the product is good for idiots, but anyone wishing to not be an idiot should avoid them, thereby establishing that there is a divide not based on the product that one has, but instead a divide based on the innate ability to comprehend basic ideas.
5. Be faggy as fuck.

Not too sure why you feel the need to take this on a personal level and call my a phag? However let me explain it for you.

I usually run with HSD coilovers on my MX5's, I have done since as far back as I can recall, years meow, with breaking and selling them I have had the opportunity to try out various suspension setups on various cars (Be in NA and NB etc) or coils and springs. The reason being is that they are some of the best Coilovers on the market today coming out of the UK where we can get replacement parts on warrenty within 2-3 days.

Here is the coilovers.
http://www.driftworks.com/hsd-coilovers ... -fd3s.html

They cost almost £800 ($1,200 roughly) so you can see, the other end of the scale from budget coilovers such as Racelands. Iv bought several sets, uprated springs, new dampers and had to rebuild a fair few meow (Infact this is the reason I do not have HSD's fitted to my current NA8 as I have to swap out 3 which my buddy had destroyed :p ) So with the girlfriend just having some racelands sitting on a shelf, I fitted them to the car as I was having to track it for the Driftland opening weekender event. This is the reason I have them fitted.

Little sad your insulting me though,
Face the facts son:

5. Be faggy as fuck.


1. What the fuck are you? Raceland police?
2. HSD is the best we have on the market here other than BC's (which I dont personally rate) - I didnt say 'they weren't good for me' I said they keep failing.. this isnt just mine but most of the people I know buying HSD's for their 5's round here.
3. Ok..
4. Racelands are phantastic.. if your a fucking lifestyler, does that put the point across any clearer?
5. Go fuck yourself.

:phillyb™:

I also, couldnt really give the tiniest little shit.. about being taken seriously ;) I dont even know who you are LMAO! :phillyb™: :phillyb™: :phillyb™: :phillyb™: meow go smoke a blunt, and come back to me without the needed stuck up 'Gotta love the racelands' tripe. :phillyb™:

I acutally have raceland coil overs on my car, and they work to replace the blown stock stuff that was on my car.

Do they make me faster? No.
Do they make me corner better? Kinda. If it was proper running stock gear the answer is no, but when the original shocks were limper than a person in need of viagra, yes.
Am I OMG SLAMMED? No. i am as low as i can go while keeping stock alignment specs.
Would I do it again? No.

I also have a raceland header, but that was a miscommunication between my wife and I. I told her I wanted a header for my miata for christmas. Her and one of my honda friends picked out the raceland header because it was "cheap". So far it works, but i expect rust to start showing any day meow...

I have raceland's on my car and only cause I bought my first NA with them equipped and haven't decided which coilovers to get. I put them on my 2 NA because I got into an accident with the first and the shell I bought didn't have struts... Don't buy raceland's or Megan's unless you're a hellafluslammedstretchandpokestancenationswagfag then you obviously need to shoot yourself.

I must disagree with all this racelands suck talk, they have their place. For example, if you're a wannabe drifter who spends all his money replacing control arms and subframes, you can't afford whichever coilover your hero pro drift status sponsor is using (BC, Stance, D2, Megan... these are the holy grail of drifter coils). Then racelands are great for you.

As an added bonus, if racelands are crappy enough to kill you, the world will be a better place for it.

I have racelands... I'll upgrade when I can afford to. At the end of the day their still better then any oem miata suspension. I bought them cause I had money burning a hole in my paypal. I had a shock blow out and I was desperate.

That said, they've seen a bunch of autocross and a few track days with no huge issues other then normal wear and tear. Their 2 year no questions asked warranty is awesome. Easily worth the money. They aren't the best thing is the world. But people need to get off their high horse about brands and quality. It's not your money, it's not your problem.
