    A few pictures of me at autocross this past weekend, and 2 special exotics that came to play, yes that is an Exige Cup and an Alfa Romeo 4C ? I finally got some good grip too, 225/50/R16's Firestone Firehawk Indy 500's. I gotta say these tires are monsters in autocross, its not quite an RE71R...
  2. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    I figured Id start a thread that will compile all my current and future autocross events including the up coming Ice Racing series too. Im halfway thru Autocross Event #4 now, very very windy a brisk 51F(11C) with a very nasty north wind that has played havoc on the course cones. A few...
  3. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Well tonight I went out for an autocross practice event and had one of my old rallycross instructors check my driving to find where Im losing time. I apparently have gotten lazy, bad midnight, bad. I was not looking ahead, was sawing the wheel instead of holding firm, not close enough to the...
  4. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Just got back from my first autocross in my Mazda 3 GT. I have done autocross in multiple vehicles and was really excited to try out the Mazda 3 GT on a dry course. I can tell this chassis has tons of potential and I am definitely taking a shot at the H-Street title next season. The stock...

    Who here has taken their 3 to autox? How did it do? Any tips or pointers? I'm thinking about taking mine to one next month, and that got me thinking about what transmission setting would be best for my auto 2.5. Sport mode obviously - but to leave it in drive and use the paddles, or to switch...
  6. Mazda 3 Parts - Buy / Sell
    It is with a very heavy heart that I'm offering this complete suspension package up for sale. I bought it earlier in the year planning to put it on a few weeks after reception, but a lot of stuff has popped up and I feel that it would better serve a purpose on someone's car than patiently...
  7. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    So I've been looking into getting coil overs lately and I came across a new product from Koni. Apparently they have two new sets at Tire rack. One STR.T strut and spring set as well as a Sport spring set. The STR.T set is selling at 640, while the sport sells at 929. Both sets use H&R springs...

    Hey guys, I'm taking my 2010 Mazda3 2.0L (automatic) autocrossing tomorrow, and was wondering for those of you who autocross, what do you do to prep before-hand? I've already changed oil and done a couple of other things. Thanks, -Gunner

    I was wondering if there are any people in the DC area who autocross their Mazda 3's (or other cars). I've been looking on the SCCA website and thinking about starting doing autocross in a few months (I believe it's at FedEx field). Just wanted to see if there's anyone else in the area doing (or...
  10. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Hey guys, I have a 2011 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring Sedan that i use for autocross/track days. I would like your input on the best wheel size/setup to use for autocross. I want to run Hoosier A6's and obviously they don't have a size that fits the stock 17's (however since Hoosier tires allow...

    Come out and show some Mazda love at STLSOLO's next autox event! I went to an autox solo event last weekend and it was AWESOME. I've already registered to drive my 3 in the next one on April 17th. It would be great if we had more Mazda 3 love out there for the next event. Mine was the only...

    I am new to Autocross so I am looking for any sort of tips/tricks for autocrossing in general, and even better some of the characteristics you have noticed while racing yours. I have signed up for the Milwaukee SCCA autocross school so I am looking forward to some quality instruction there as a...

  15. 2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    What’s up guys, I’m back on the forum. I posted my first Autocross experience in the Mazdaspeed3 on YouTube. Here are a couple of notes. 1) When I got to the track I had a bunch of prev. gen. speed 3 owners warn me about the torque steer. I've got to say that I didn't experience anything like...
