CorkSport is proud to announce the new Lower Control Arm Tie Bar for the 2007-2013 Mazdaspeed 3. The lower tie bar is designed to increase the stiffness of the front sub-frame assembly to improve driver feedback by reducing wheel hop and torque steer.
The CorkSport Lower Tie Bar works by connecting the front LCA inboard pivots together to add stiffness to the front of the sub-frame assembly as shown below.
Iâ€™ve met a lot of amazing people thanks to my Mazda 3 Sport, but Yolanda Sampson (Instagram: @bluehalogirl) is the one I blame for this addiction we call â€śmodding.â€ť When we met, I hadnâ€™t done much to my car yet, just a couple minor things like tinted windows and tinted taillights. She had a feeling Iâ€™d be into meeting some more like-minded locals and invited me to a meet. We got along like only two Mazda nuts could, and it was game over for me.
Good day, Mazda enthusiasts everywhere. Vincent here. In this tech blog, I want to share some tips with you guys and gals on how to diagnose suspension noise, and how to help pinpoint the source of your suspension problem.
Itâ€™s impossible for this blog to be the bible of suspension component noise, nor do I intend for it to be. The design, function, engineering, and workings of suspension could take several books to explain. The intention of this post is to help you ask the right questions and create a more methodical approach to diagnosing suspension noise. Hopefully by the end of this, you will have that much more of an understanding of what might be going on before you take it in for some work.
Last year we embarked on a new race car project: the Mazda 3. Our goal was to develop the car into a frontrunner in the T4 SCCA class and have a shot at the national title at the SCCA runoffs in 2016. Along the way, weâ€™ve been making changes to the car and working on improving the setup, along with testing out products. One of the products we developed and built along the way was our Big Brake Kit (BBK). We never really explained why that kit was so important. So let me explain.
It is back from the dead! CorkSport is happy to announce the return of the Mazdaspeed 6/MPS 6 shift plate. We took our original design and adjusted it based on feedback from customers who owned the original to bring you a new and improved product.
CorkSportâ€™s Mazdaspeed 6 Short Shift Plate has been designed to provide a 33% reduction in shift throw. The unique design of our shift plate provides maximum benefit to Mazdaspeed 6 drivers by changing the geometry at the shifter end to remove the feeling of synchros where it is most noticeable – in gears one and two. The shift plate bolts directly to the car, eliminating the need to bolt on to the factory or an aftermarket counterweight.
The 2016 Mazda MX-5 has driven its way into the hearts and lead feet of car aficionados everywhere. The Atlanta Business Journal says this bad boy â€śsquarely hits the nail on the head,â€ť and Motor Trend couldnâ€™t get enough of it.
Our reaction? Roughly summed up, it looks something like this:
We love it, and we want you to love it too. So weâ€™re going to share what this little numberâ€™s got going on under and above the hood, and let you know about the ace aftermarket parts weâ€™ve got for you to make it even better.
This may seem long overdue, but let me explain â€¦
Here at CorkSport we listen to all of our awesome customers and take great care on how we plan our projects for product development. A well-fitted front lip specifically designed for the Mazdaspeed3 has understandably been a very frequent request. There is a lot that goes into producing a great product, especially a tight-fitting front lip. Long story short: We wanted to get all of our ducks in a row before we attempted to execute a custom Mazdaspeed3 product you all would love.
Itâ€™s fair to say that we all love the look of a lowered car, especially when itâ€™s your car right? However what we donâ€™t love is lowered headlights, but sadly thatâ€™s a result of your rideâ€™s new look. There are less desirable ways to fix the new lowered headlight issue and there are correct ways. Here at CorkSport, we wanted to provide you the correct method to get your headlights back in line.
