There's nothing unfortunate about this. It helps you stay alive - as well as your fellows on the road.:sarc

The Mazda6 computer is completely sealed off, so we wont be able to use chips on them. However, Diablo is working on a device called The Predator, that plugs into the OBD-II port and flashes the stock computer programming. Removal of the speed limiter will be an option with this tool.

One trick is to get the factory service manual, or look in the owner's manual at the fuses, and see if there is a "speed control" fuse. You can rig a toggle switch to enable or disable the line for the limiter. Of course, this will throw a CEL (Check Engine Light); but switching back over will make it go away again.

This is a little trick that some of the Maxima guys use on the models that have limiters.


But 120mph is already FAST ENOUGH.


However, without the limiter....



My CarTest2000 model of the 6s 5MT is showing that it will pull darn near all the way to redline in 5th, close to 150mph!!


Low drag/low-profile design, combined with lots of top-end in the engine will give you VERY strong highway pulling power. The 94 mph 1/4 mile trap is pretty impressive given the engine's power and the car's weight.

Spare tire, any jacks that go along with that.

Hardcore: Rear seats, audio system, only fill the gas tank to what you'll need for the race [assuming this is hardcore]. Lightweight rims [Volk or Centerline most likely], Carbon Fiber hood, anything else you can get carbon fiber, lightweight exhaust [JIC will most likely come out with a titanium one for this car], lightweight flywheel, aftermarket CF seats [Sparco or Nex for example].

First off of course you'd want the manual. Shave 3-500 pounds off there. Base model will remove Bose system, ACC, sportkit, spoiler, etc.

Do you mean chrome rims? If so, you should understand that shaving the equivalent weight from the car as the weigth of the added chrome will still not offset the new effect of the heavier rim.
Heavier wheels will result is slower transitions left/right, slower response in steering, slower acceleration due to increased weight that has to be accelerated. Unsprung mass, such as items like the wheel, rotors, calipers, etc... are very important in "feel" and performance. Chrome rims are NOT a performance enhancer, in fact, they are a detriment.
