Hey folks. I just got a 2018 touring hatchback and was wondering what my wheel and tire options may be for track days and HPDE type setttings.
I'm fairly experienced on the track so I am looking for something semi-aggressive and for track use only so I'm not too worried about rubbing issues...
Was finally able to get my car to the local track over the weekend at Raceway Park NJ and I took my 2015 Mazda 3 2.0.
First off, it was a lot of fun. The track was fairly small and had a lot of late apex's so fortunately for me it kind of leveled the playing field for me keeping up with other...
I inherited my wife's 2010 Mazda 3i AUTO last year after we bought an SUV for her. Since the car has 115k miles and isn't worth much, I'm considering trying it out for a track day. (Currently autocross my MR2 Spyder, but it would need a roll bar to get on track with that. I would...
Hi all. I have a 2017 mazda 3 sedan 2.0 6mt that i sometimes take tracking with bilstein shocks, eibach pro springs and yokohama s-drive 235-35-19 tires on enkei raijin 19x8 rims. I have about ~ -1* camber front and rear. I have run between 38-48 psi hot at track on dry pavement but the tires...
G'day from Australia!
I just picked up my first Mazda, a 2006 Mazda 3 2.0 manual.
This rocket is gonna be used on the track only, won't be street driven. Went on a mission to remove some weight from the vehicle. I'm keeping tabs in my phone of everything I gut out of the car. I am a 105kg...
Getting excited for my first track day at Mazda Laguna Seca this weekend. This is treat for me as I'm a Motorsport photographer on the side and have had the pleasure of shooting at Laguna Seca for many years now, but to finally get to drive the track is thrilling.
I have some past on track...
I have a 2014 2.0l with the automatic transmission. Since its my wife and i's car manual was off the table. But i have been interested to go back to my local track to have some fun. Is the a/t strong enough to survive a few track days a year does it need better oil/additiv. Keeping in mind its...
I took my week-old 3 on a long drive through West Virginia mountains yesterday. It's the first time in a long while I've had a car I that had any sporting pretensions at all, and I had a blast.
It occurred to me that a great way to increase my enjoyment of such things would be to...
Hey guys! What's your experience with stickier than stock tires for once in a while track fun?? I had Potenza RE760 sports on my previous 3 and they performed well on the road and at the track (lapping). If i can't find better for the same price, i'll buy them again... Any suggestions? Thanks.
I am trying to get the track info of spotify via bluetooth to the Mazda head up display while playing music.
I tried it while my phone (Xperia Z5 Compact / Android 7.0) was connected via usb cable - then the music sitting on the sd card of my phone was perfectly read by mazda (even artwork went...
My car has had a terrible rattle that sounds like it's coming from under the center of the rear dash. After reading several threads on the topic, I want to remove the rear dash to poke around for the source, but the only guide I saw was for the first gen cars. Anybody know of a write up or is...
I am not sure if anyone has seen this from the blog we posted up about the adventures on the track.

I had a solstice hit me at mid-ohio on the track this year at the SCCA runoffs. There is a video of the contact from a car a few lengths back.
I'm going to be upgrading springs on my daily that will occasionally see a road course/autox day. I'm wondering if anyone has some experience tracking their 3's and what springs they're using. I'm leaning toward either h&r or racing beat because they seem to be a bit stiffer than prokit/corksport.
I've noticed that the Infotainment Center, when using a CD, doesn't always update the Track Title. It seems to only display the title of whatever song was last played.
Just wondering if anyone else has experienced the same, and if there is an option/resolution to have the titles...
Aug 6 - 1morelap ca - event - End of first novice 30min session
Calabogie west track
2014 Mazda 3 GS - 2.0L - 6 speed manual
Very fun and very well run event.
Car handles great and recommend everyone give the track a try if you have the chance :)
Does anyone know if track info, such as song name and album name, shows up on the base radio? (not the infotainment)
When connected via Bluetooth, the songs come up as numbers both with Apple Music and Spotify. When my phone is connected via usb, "No Content" is displayed but the music still plays.
I'm working on it for near 2 months, but at least i made it.
- Adding the support of FLAC. now the CMU can read FLAC files with the metadata.
- Alphabetic ordering of the track (by directory)
Here the different steps https://github.com/diorcety/mazda3/wiki/Media-patching
when you let the track play and automatically change to the next track, the track # changes, but the title stays the same.
If I manually skip, the title changes.
Track 2, "master of puppets"
Track 3, "master of puppets"
I had it into dealer and they updated to version 55??? Told me...
