Kenlilley04's STF Build Thread
Hello everyone, I've decided in the last month or so to start auto crossing my 04 mazda 3s. car just hit 140,000 miles and is my current daily driver here in Titusville Florida (Orlando area). I'm mainly looking for some advice on a few topics I've been researching, mainly weight saving (looking at some aftermarket seats) and rim sizes, i would like to get a new set of 17x7.5 sparcos (cheap and somewhat lightweight) but i know everyone basically runs the 15 inch rotas.
Car currently set up with Megan racing Coil-overs, with 450lbs rear springs and 350 lbs front springs, also have BC racing adjusters in the rear. JBR rear sway bar with Moog end-links, just recently installed a vibrant header and a Corksport cat-back with high-flow cat. (really love the sound and noticeable power gain). Also have Moog front end-links and new Mevotech ball joints are on the way. TWM Short Throw Shifter and solid shifter bushings with a Big type R shift knob.
I will be getting a CAI soon but for right now rims and tires are the priority, as well as some better rotors and some EBC Yellow pads all the way around.
Please feel free to comment with any and all suggestions, i used to race asphalt superlate models so ive been around racing my entire life, i also ran my dads 98 corvette this year in CAM-S so im no stranger to the racing community, sadly he wont let me prep the corvette lol
