    So I've been wanting to go to a summer tire here in Hawaii, I want everyone's opinion on what Summer Tires is the best bang for my buck in terms of performance, comfort, tread wear, so an all around performer. I have a few front runners and the three that come to mind are the Pilot Sport 4S...
  3. Summer Tires Discussion

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I’m running 18 in stock wheels w/G-Force Comp 2 A/S. Is it really worth it? I’m thinking about some Michelin PS4S tires. I’m just concerned is it really worth the hype? My concerns are not limited to but include; things like rocks getting kicked up by the tires, positive negative driving...

  5. The Park and Handbrake discussion

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Never owned a car before with an automatic gearbox! So, what is the best way to park the car? Put it in the "P" stand and/or pull the handbrake? Or, leave it in neutral and always pull the handbrake? Some say this is the best way for avoiding the handbrake to get stuck. Any experiences? Thanks!

    Well, it has finally made it here. My factory ordered Skyactiv with a 6 speed manual. Its date of birth is February 3, 2012. I had the spoiler and the fog lights installed at the port of entry and the side skirts were installed at the dealership. 35% tint was done by Ziebart and it looks...

  12. Throttle Body and Intake mod discussion!

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Seems to me "Intake" mods are a popular thing. I'd like to start something to clarify everything in one topic. I've notice a lot of talk on Throttle Body grounding, K&N filter, MAF sensors, CAI, SRI, etc etc... It's seems that Throttle body Grounding has been confirmed to help the servo...

    i thought that instead of cluttering up the SRI thread with all of our corksport talk we could just take it here. discuss anything corksport related: thoughts on products, new product ideas, maybe even a teaser of upcoming products from corksport (i hope)
