    He's using calculus to explain it, but he draws some interesting points. I believe the Mazda already utilizes a 60/40 F/R split, to keep more power at the front wheels. There's more weight with the 2.5L engine in there too. Wider front tires does help.. I can attest to that, but I wonder...
  2. 2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    I am coming off a lease (AWD Subaru Legacy) and will be buying/leasing my next car by the end of August. The current contenders are a preferred trim automatic FWD Mazda3 hatch or a preferred trim AWD sedan (not a bad second choice). So that brings in the debate, a FWD hatch is about the same...

    Interested in the 3, coming from an older civic. I don't need a sunroof living in Seattle. I liked the idea of cylinder deactivation-- but the rocker arm issues makes me want to choose the Preferred engine-- which is the equivalent of the prior 3. Are Preferred users OK with the...

    The rated MPG for the FWD Sedan/Hatch is close to 35/27. What are you getting?

    For someone living in Los Angeles and who has never driven his 11 year old vehicle in snow, is it better to just stick with FWD or would it be better to consider the AWD? My commute to work is 42 miles round trip and highway. Felt it would be better to stick with FWD. I would like your thoughts?

    Earlier today I drove the 2019 premium hatch FWD automatic. I drove my 2018 GT HB auto about 55 miles to the dealership where I did the test drive, so it was a nice back to back experience. My test was pretty extensive, I drove it about 70 miles in various conditions, about 30 miles on the...

    FS: Aftermarket Deep Offset or "Lip" 18" Wheels w/Newer Tires for most FWD cars I bought a used 2008 Mazda3 and these wheels came with the car. Selling them because I went back to the OEM wheels. They have deep offsets (aka: "Big Lip Rims"). I don't know what brand they are but they appear to...
  9. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    I had a 2014 sT auto for a couple years before trading it in for the family minivan. I am looking into getting another sedan in a couple years but am hesitant to get a 3 sGT due to the typical FWD no LSD problems. 1. From a stop, the front tires will break traction. Not sure if this is better...

    I've been doing reading and considering picking up eibach pro lowering springs along with jbr rear sway bar and jbr front strut bar. They look to be a decent setup. From what I've learned you want have a tighter back then front due to how a FWD car handles, am I correct? Or do you just play...
