I've seen a few post saying that no one will be autocrossing a 3rd gen. I thought I left that world behind when I got rid of my MX-5 in May, but I missed it. So today was my first day back at an autocross in my 2015 Mazda6 Sport with 18X8 Enkei PF01's, 225/45/18 Continental Extreme DW tires, and H&R sport springs. The springs put me in my local autocross clubs slowest modified division known as M3 and I came in 1st in my class and 32nd overall out of 60 drivers. I'm only on Max performance tires and I think if I would have been on Extreme performance tires I could have easily dropped a full second off of my times which would have put me at 24th overall. The course was short with 2 180* turns that flowed like a huge S, in essence 2 skidpads. It was fun and the weak point on the car is definitely the factory brake pads they quickly overheated and smelled horrible which would explain why my fastest run was my 2nd run out of 7 total.
