I have been doing some research on the MazdaSpeed 3. I found it interesting that the computer was dumbed down (torque management) to allow you only 72-77% of usable torque in first gear. In second gear you get about 77-79% and in thrid gear you get 100%. Is it not a no brainer that your VERY FIRST MOD to this fine auto should be smaller 17 inch rims to replace out the stock 18's??? Do you agree??? Comments???
