cant go wrong with the mazda, but the protoform stratus 3.0 AP has more steering than the mazda, especially in high speed corners. They both work very well, it just depends on weither you like your car to steer more or not. If you like steering get the stratus 3.0 if you dont, get the mazda 6

Im using the stratus ATM

Oh Yea..New York has parts!! I got a bag of goodies(new battery strap,arms,c-hubs and everything else).

The only thing they did not get was rear hubs. Hmm I wonder if it has something to do with the toe-in problem?

Skoda and Nemesis also have more steering and to me feel better to drive. I run on med grip asphalt. Mazda 6 is very stable though

Default Fan

Hey Dom,

What Peter R. did on his car was he moved the fan outward on the heatsink so instead of it being over the can mounted with 4 screws, his was over the endbell mounted with only 2 screws. Just be more carefull because a certain side crash could break the fan. I think like previously posted try the fans in both locations and if the temps not dramatically different then run it in the standard location.

Steve

I prefer the Mazda for stability and topspeed.
With the Dodge 3 you'll have more steering than you can handlle and less top speed.

Thanks Steve! That's what I'm doing now, mounting the fan over the endbell with 2 screws.

I think our problem at the 2-day prompted me to use the fan. You figured out the problem yet?

Or if you have the motor gaurd u could drill a hole in that and use brass to mount the fan
my 2 cents
