The chicanes are now in season!
By Mazda Mike on
2003 Mazda Mazdaspeed Protege 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
After all my indecision between which sport compact to buy, I have to say that once I drove the MSP, it was over. I had fallen in love. I also had a great ex-racer sales rep. that let me take it through its paces on the twisty roads nearby. The MSP was the model of stability, even as I pressed it into a hard drift in a decreasing-radius left hander. I have now raced this car in SCCA events three times; beating out Lexus IS300 after Nissan Spec V after Ford Focus SVT. With some Kumho race tires and some small mods, I plan on taking my Mazdaspeed to SCCA Stock-Class Nationals!
Favorite Features
Twin trapizoidal-link suspension, re-valved Tokicos at the corners, crisp clutch and shifting linkage, and let's be honest... it's a sexy lady'!
Suggested Improvements
Summer in Phoenix + small a/c compressor = irritability. And, even though I'm aware that the transmission can't handle much more turbo, dialing up the T-25 to 11psi or so couldn't hurt. Could it?
