I’ll be using the stock wheels on my Mazdaspeed 6 for winter duty, so I need to figure out what sort of wheels I want to buy for the summers. Ideal specs:
I just bought my event and airline tickets. With the news of Porsche pulling out of WEC, this is my last chance to see these magnificent LMP1 beasts competing here in America so I figured I’d better follow through.
whodathunk 215 tires wouldn’t mount on an 11" wide wheel??
I hate dealer decals & badges with a burning, fiery passion. The Mazdaspeed 6 I just bought has this decal on the trunk lid. How can I remove it without damaging the paint?
A couple weeks ago I sold my 1988 Mazda 323 GTX (ownership review coming soon). It was getting a bit long in the tooth and I’ve honestly sunk more money into it than I wanted to. I decided to cut my losses, sell it, and upgrade to a 2006 Mazdaspeed 6. More reliability, comfort, and power. Driving it a thousand miles…
Bought this new a few months ago for a project that didn’t end up happening. Never used, hardly even handled. You get everything that originally came with it, all in the original packaging.
Thinking about buying a Mazdaspeed 6 out in California. Here’s the VIN: JM1GG12L861105542
Finally got around to testing the mic I bought for my GoPro. I have the mic routed through the trunk and clipped to the trunk lid edge, right next to the Mazda badge. It seems to be pretty well out of the airflow as there is hardly any wind noise being picked up, but there are some fairly loud pops that come in at…
Big thanks to Jay McJay who took this photo at Pikes Peak International Raceway’s time attack series yesterday.
Much Saab, very Sonett, wow
sidenote: I never realized how tiny the hood is on these.
Here’s my car spotting from the past year or so.
My 323 GTX wishes you a very happy 3/23 day!
As seen from my commute to work this morning. It looked like a normal Colorado plate, not a military or diplomat plate.
According to Wikipedia, the NB Miata is 1680 mm wide. I run 225 tires, so that’s 450 mm of rubber. 450 divided by 1680 yields... 26.7%. More than a quarter of the car’s width is rubber meeting the road.
From my hometown:
Weight reductions total 47.1 lbs:
There’s not a whole lot of support for the Mazda 323 GTX here in the States. Which is why I ordered a ramhorn turbo manifold from a guy in Malaysia who makes them.
We got just the right amount of snow overnight for perfect little snow drifts on the way to work this morning. The 323 GTX shines brightest in these conditions. It’s so easy to flick around, and a little pull of the handbrake will do exactly what you want it to. Hope everyone is doing well this morning!
