A Competition Column for Mazda Miatas
IDIDIT Performance’s newest addition to its Pro-Fab line for 1990-2005 Miata (NA & NB) applications gives racers a new way to save weight.
Highly popular in road racing and autocross, the Miata has proven to be a light, yet tough, option for builders and racers. The new IDIDIT Pro-Fab Miata column shaves an additional 16-pounds off an already-light vehicle, which provides an advantage on the track and an opportunity to install other aftermarket products that builders may have been weary about due to weight worries.
Suitable for drag, autocross, road and off-road racing, the ultra-lightweight column weighs just 2.65 pounds. When paired with an IDIDIT Performance Quick-Release Steering Hub and aftermarket lightweight steering wheel, the 4.05-pound combination offers a 16-pound weight savings over the 20-pound factory column.
The Pro-Fab slides directly in place of the factory column and bolts to the OEM mounting points and steering shaft. It comes equipped with an extended shaft that allows the installer to trim the column to best fit the driver. Pairing with an IDIDIT Performance Quick-Release Steering Hub adds further adaption to the race car.
"The Pro-Fab Column for the 1990-2005 Mazda Miata is the lightest column we've ever made,” Trever Cornwell of IDIDIT said. “With laser-cut tubing and brackets, TiG welds and a brushed aluminum finish – it’s a true testament to the level of research, development and design we put in to new products. The Pro-Fab columns are purpose-built to provide drivers with a new, rigid, steering solution for race applications. And it since it bolts in using factory mounts and no other modifications are needed, installation is simpler than most think.”
Proudly made in the USA with precision laser-cut tubing and brackets, the column features sealed upper ball bearings and Delrin lower bushings for years of smooth operation, and comes with a brushed aluminum finish.
Included in the box are options to retain the factory keyed ignition switch, factory self-canceling turn signals and multifunction switch on the column, as well as to retain the column shroud to keep a stock appearance.
IDIDIT Performance also makes aluminum mounts for aftermarket dashes offered by Racepak, AEM, FuelTech, AIM, Holley Performance Products and others that work with the IDIDIT Pro-Fab column. Visit www.IDIDIT.com for more information.
