Canadian Zoom Zoom
We often get submissions form readers and we love seeing everyone’s different perspective and personality show in their build. Roger Dawson touched base with me a few weeks ago regarding Mike’s MazdaSpeed 3; and this is what he said.
Photos and words by: Roger Dawson
Mike is an avid reader and acquired his car from Seattle, new in 2008. He started modding the car with minor changes under the hood; blow-off valve, turbo hard piping and other engine mods. Over the past two months though, he as focused on the car’s stance; lowering it on BC Racing coils and Enkei RPFs.
As the summer winds down in Canada and the winter approaches, Mike’s list of mods is growing fast and this little red Zoom Zoom will not look the same for long.
Mike and I would like to send a shout out to his E-Town Crew; the Variety Pac.
