Jave is more helpful than not
slack in cable, cables can break the sort of thing you dont want to happen when slamming gears.

the sponginess is probably from the cable shifter or shifter bushing being soft.

what i have heard is that mazda is very hard to tune. ever notice why the rx-8 never caught on the way they thought it would? i remember a year or so after the rx-8 was released they had a test on a n/a rx-8 and i believe a king motorsports boosted rx-8 with some other goodies and the results were not that impressive.

i wonder what mazda did to the msp3 and how much can be extracted out of it. only time can tell i guess.

Car and driver tested a turbo RX-8 and it had something like 390hp.

They'll make parts for it, just because it's new means there won't be many parts available for it yet. If the car really takes off and gets a solid following, parts will come flooding in, if the car flops, there won't be much of an aftermarket for it.

if you like the MS3 that much, then get it. There's no one that needs to like your car other than yourself.

Wierd, I thought AWD gave you more grip in any conditions.. especially turning.

The MS3 is a cool car.. I dig Mazdas. If you don't intend to modify it may be the better car. But the WRX is proven to take better to mods, and currently has more potential and support.

I agree, especially with the purposely designed off-camber turns on some of the freeways and canyon roads around here...at the very least it can help one keep up the speed through the corners in the dry.
