Heres a guide to calculate brake bias. The reference is for 240s but just plug your numbers and go from there. ... etups.html

It works for low brake pressure, but it doesn't factor in the proportioning valve...

For those of you wanting more effective brakes on your Miata (which have too much front bias), let me share a popular AutoX trick.

Run more agressive pads in the rear:
Many AutoX folks run OEM pads up front, and Axxix ultimates, or Hawk HP+ in the rear.
I prefer to run the Axxis Ultimates up front, and Carbotech XP-8 in the rear, this gives me outstanding results and wont fade under aggressive driving.
