You'd never be caught unaware pulling away from a light, it's always ready to go. 4th gear is just long enough to finish out a quarter mile run or highway pull from 1st or second gear. 5th gear is long enough for me to once again cruise at 80mph where as with the old ttans I could only cruise around 75ish and be on the verge of VTEC engaging (4100 rpm). I like it but it is a bit overpriced.

Mazdaspeed 3 is the turbo version of the mazda 3 hatchback. I beat a few mustangs and one or two corvettes. There was a guy out there in an Integra that had full suspension and race tires that was about a second faster than me. Autocross is truly an equalizer.

Ahh ok thought so, I saw the newly updated orig post that mentioned T2W4, man great choice that is THE tranny to have. Minus the final drive, it's kinda similar to the ITR tranny. Oh man the M2F4 5th is sooo short! Alittle over a year ago I bought Ceelooboob's old T2W4 which came rebuilt + a 4.64 final stuffed into it as well. Enjoy the upgrade though very very nice choice

Welp, time for an update. Picked up a set of wheels that are bar none my absolute favorite wheels I could ever have on the car. I found a guy in California that was selling them through facebook. Rays Gram Light 57 Pro's. These are probably my forever wheels for this car. I'll probably keep the 18's but my buddy clubs are going up for sale and I'll be selling a few other things at this rate. Now I really really want to get back to my old front end setup. Hopefully I'll come across a seattle silver bumper at the junkyard or something.

Thanks. I'm loving them so far. I need to get some nice summer performance tires for them.

I know right?! I thought the same thing. Did a bit of searching after seeing another CB on Facebook with flares from the same manufacturer I got mine from and apparently they revised the design a bit so I might pick up another set; I rubbed a hole through both rear ones anyways.

I picked them up from seller jdmff on ebay. They revised it a bit and it looks better than what I have. The edges taper away and flow better instead of being rounded like mine.

I was extremely fortunate to come across this set when I did. I want to have some tire stencils made up so I can white letter the tires to being it closer to the look I'm going for. Maybe next weekend?

The Gram Lights really are a good looking wheel! The fitment is perfect with your flares.

What size are those P1's?

The offset should work very well even if I decide to get rid of the flares and spacers. They're dream wheels for me. I'm really fortunate I could get them.

The P1's are 17x7 +43. Interested? I've had them up for sale locally for a bit now.

Thanks man! It's actually another S13 coupe spoiler. DMAX is the brand and it fits pretty damn well.
