I WANT THAT SETUP

I have another pair of revalved rear shocks that supports up to 1200lbs springs. I have those on the car but they were too rough on the street. Let me know when you want to get them, i would like to see them go to people that actually uses it.

I seriously wish I could just get u to hold them. Im already digging around and listing stuff for sale just for your setup. You know...car parts sold = car parts bought....usually with some type of multiplier. Hopefully we'll be in touch soon!

Purchased a corksport cat back and Mazdaspeed Motorsports coilovers from squirrel mincer here.

Cant wait to get rid of the clunk the PO's exhaust hackjob makes hitting the subframe. Its going to be tempting to put this test pipe in...but I do plan to run a HFC for inspection purposes.

The coilovers should hold me off for a while. Need to get camber plates for the front and arms for the rear. I may get the rears revalved and up the rear spring rate eventually. But I plan to run this autocross season with them as they are along with a RSB.

Yeah, I need a winter shift knob as well lol...
Today is going to be worse. 6 after windchill here in Atlanta this morning.

That or gloves work, but my new warm gloves are leather. Leather on leather steering wheel... don't work out so well. Very slippery.

Its a 1lb stainless ball. Had a buyer come by the other day for my Evo and figured Id swap shift knobs before he got there since the 3's doesnt say "Mazda" on it. Gloves help, but holy shit is that thing cold. My glove kept sticking to it this morning. lol

Shifts have definitely improved. Havent grinded 2nd since putting it in. And I tried fairly hard this morning. haha Still need mounts and a fluid change though. Wheel hop city.

That buyer is coming back tonight to put a deposit down on the Evo. Hopefully it all goes well and Im stocking up on more STF parts for this thing really soon.

Rocking 16" steelies and snows now. MUCH better than the no-seasons it came with. Also raised it up a 1/2" or so.

Corksport cat back due to get installed soon. I need some gaskets. Looks to be a 2.4" ID pipe. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Remflex gaskets and want to use them. But they are 2.5". Will that work?

MazdaEdit purchased. Still need a cable. Looking forward to playing with it. Everything looks familiar to what Ive been using for the last 7 years. A local autocrosser has a 2wd dyno in his garage. Its currently being used for car storage, but I plan to visit him in the spring time for confirmation of butt/virtual dyno results and to really dig into what works and what doesn't without the road variables. I'll be tuning from now until then and will load maps back to back on the dyno to see how they really compare.
