    Takeaways from this video.

    1- Car sounds awesome.

    2- Needs bigger tires.

    Kinda, in 2013 Mazda stopped using the C1 platform and switched to their own, called the skyactiv platform. Those cars are just now making their way to the states, and look much better than the second gen Mazda3, which I think has a horrid front fascia. Not sure if there will be a Mazdaspeed variant or not yet, but I imagine they will make one sooner or later regardless. I own an 06 Mazda3. Its not a bad car. Though I don't recommend anything other than the MS version. It has got to be said, after driving an Audi TT for a while, the 3s manual trans felt almost automatic. everything is soft and smooth, in a good way. Also, important to note I think, is that parts are cheaper and more readily available for the 3 than other vehicles we have talked about.
    That said, I still cant stand driving FWD cars, and suggest staying away from them if you are looking for a performance minded ride.

    It ain't the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.

    Way to profound for this early in the morning. I need a nap.

    of course @CoachMK21 larger tires would have increased the entering as exit corner speed, my honest opinion is that this guy did an awesome job :tup::cool: ( lool sry if I might have sounded English :O )

    Oh yea, I agree. He did an awesome job handling that beast. I simple meant that if the car had larger tires, it "might" have been able to better put down the huge amount of power (does everyone say this word with a Jeremy Clarkson voice).

    The skyactiv is a powertrain platform. They are still using the global C chassis. As its shared with the Focus ST. Mazda is using there own powertrain, but still sharing designs with Ford as it is more economical for the company.

    That is a negative. Go do a touch more research. For the third gen 3, Mazda moved off the C1 chassis and started using their own, called the SkyActiv Platform. While indeed, the engine they use is also called Skyactiv, so is their "new" chassis.

    Mossiys and black fly heaven...lol
    Just bought a Forester plain jane...faster, better handling, better mileage and better brakes than our Outback. The hopped up version should be a keeper.
    who are they...how about one of the banner guys doing one with names.

    ATTABOY...VITESSE....he showed up last week in the pack.....despite his having to get up at oh dark thirty to race with us ....we got to contemplate his bumper upon occasion....and his manners were great.
