Ok so i have a vibration that kicks in when i go over 60mph....

No pulling left or right.
It feels like it's in the rear of the car.

An i have been recently sliding around in a snowy parking lot. But never red lining it. An im usually in 2nd gear anyways. I go easy on it, i don't beat on her shes my baby.

Any tips or ideas would help thank.:confused:

Not sure what Mazda you have but normally around 63-70 a vibration could be tire balance. How old are your tires? The snowy sliding could just from light tread on the tires or just bad driving :)

If you're lucky it's just a bad balance job. Good luck & keep us posted. I know other have had this issue too.

Like said above... A bad balance job.

Next balancer you go to, make sure it's a "road force" balancer. It simulates driving conditions compared to a standard balance. They'll get it spot on with one of those.

Vibration or pulsing?

Does clicking the ebrake up once stop it? Our diffs do make some noise.

If you've been sliding around in a nice snowy parking lot lately, the wheel rims could be packed with snow, happens to me all the times since my snow tires are alloys with a nice big shelf. Thought I had thrown a weight last winter, but when I looked in at my rims, one of them was packing with a good pile of snow \ ice \ mud. Cleaned it off with a convenient stick that was near by and the vibration went away. Give it a try, may save you a trip to the shop and $80 in balance charges.
