2016 Build #2 - STF 2009 Mazda5 (local fun)

Yep that's not a misprint. There's not much building going on, but I bought a practical car and then fabbed up a 2.25" header back exhaust with a Magnaflow rear muffler,, MS3 rear bar, whiteline outter rear camber bushings and the BC Racing BR coilovers (custom valved of course) with 10k springs front and rear.

It's a mild setup car that I may tweak as the season goes on, but it's competitive enough to be within 2 sec in pax against stiff competition.

So lets see how it goes this year lol

Ok so ran some double entry runs a couple weeks ago and the car was great. Good front end grip and overall balance. Could use a bit more rear bar however. Rotation in something this big is difficult. But it hooks up immediately when you get on the gas after rotating. SO that's nice

Inside wheel spin is challenging to control. We will see how it does in a few weeks at the Porsche Club event testing.
