2009 Mazda 3 2.0L 4-Speed Auto
What's up Mazda Fam,
This is my first time using Mazda 3 forum but I am a member on the Corvette forum as well, I also have a 2007 C6 Z06
I have a 2009 Mazda 3 with around 155,000 miles with the automatic 4-speed transmission & the 2.0L engine.
I'm from northern Cali and live in Contra Costa county & I don't know many other people with Mazda's.
I defintely think this car is easy/ fun to drive(please correct me, if I'm wrong) and a great entry level car to go track racing after the following mods list:
I want to take this car to race-tracks so I put a Corksport Cat-Back Exhaust with High-Flow Cat and I have Typhoon K & N CAI 69-6010 cold air intake on the car. Other than that the car is stock, however I just ordered some parts.
I ordered the CorkSport Front & Rear Sway Bars & their Coilovers too. Does anybody recommend any other brands?
I have never been to the track and I want to do all my maintenance myself as I have for the last few years. I need to change all of my fluids and I was thinking about the transmission fluid to a more preformance oriented fluid to allow for quicker shifts.
I also bought a Go-Pro recently so I should have videos.
Has anybody done what I've done with their Mazda3 ??? Any tips & tricks?
I'm also lookimg for track days and need a Helmet still.
I also want drilled and slotted Rotors and was looking for any good brands since I just got new pads, but I only have a Vented rotor in the front and solid rotor in the rear. Should I use these up or get the drilled & slotted?
I have Sumitomo tires all around and will need some new rubber soon. Any recommended brands for street/track use?
I think some Rx8 wheels look nice, especially if I tinted my windows too but I think I like the sleeper look (which may go away with the coilovers).
I was debating on removing the rear seat & getting a race seat for front seat/Passenger but that may be too much.
I may be rambling but this is going to be my first track build & I am looking for any help.
