RP Performance did a great job installing shocks, springs and an lsd on my NC Miata. The work was completed in good time and the price was very fair. Although I have to drive out from Gaithersburg to have the work done, it’s very reassuring to have work done by someone who understands MX-5s.

Peter Evans

Thanks again for doing a great job on my car. It ran very well on the way home. It’s a real treat to have it back.

David Deep

I can’t tell you how much easier it is to just have my race car prepped and ready, when I get to the track. It takes a huge load off my mind and just makes my racing easier and more fun. Thanks Bret.
