Hi Guys,

Our first shipment of Mazda 6 is due to arrive this Friday (Dec. 6th)
As you all know, this is a hot body, so I highly suggest those that want one to pre-order them. We will be able to ship out all pre-orders this Friday. Quantities are limited, click here to pre-order!

Default Nice and Simple

here's my mazda 6... not as good as the other guys... but thats how i like my paint scheme. nice and simple!



the colors are all off. the flourescent yellow came out as a canary yellow. metallic pearl blue came out dull too. odd

must be the flourescent lights thats throwing off the colors.

Did you back your flourescents with silver? I think thats what you're supposed to do. But I could be wrong. Has anyone run the Mazda 6 on foam tires? If so, how much traction was there on the track? And did you like it? I might try one of these bodies when I need a new one. And they look cool too .

the yellow is fine if you look at it in real life. its just the lighting in my apartment makes it look bad

Flourescents are to be backed with white. Metallics and candies are backed with silver or gold.

racerdx6,

I ran one at cleveland. Went softer on rear spring from my Stratus 2.0 setup and threw the Mazda on and WOW ....It made the car handle extremely well. Steered very well...not over-steer, just plenty there if needed, held traction, lots of corner speed, and had a cool "floating" effect. It was weird, but very cool. Biggest and best body change I've made yet. Many guys were complaining about how there was so much traction, i said "what traction?" as the car did not feel 'stuck' in the corners. It was very nice. I highly rate this body to anyone.

I had a feeling I had it wrong. If I could only remove the silver backing and put white backing on my last body . Oh well, I still like the way it turned out. But I'll remember to use white next time. Thanks
