    FSZE Protege5 Track Build

    I had found 2 P5s at a local Pull A Part, but they were marked black. I had planned on getting those body panels from those cars and just having a mismatched car for awhile. But I checked another yard that had a P5 listed, but no color. I decided to check it first to see the condition and or...

    Time to see the extent of the damage... The positive part of all this is that there didnt seem to look like there was any damage hidden behind the dented panels. My wheels are a little scrapped and damaged, but nothing structural. I was worried about by the headlight socket being damaged...

    LankyKiwi's Rally-flavored SP20

    I Swapped over my p5 to manual windows, it was pretty straight forward. The rear fits fine, but the front door cards are a little different. I did have a hard time finding manual window BJs here in the US.

    FSZE Protege5 Track Build

    So back out at Road Atlanta, my biggest fear with Road Atlanta is the sway bars making the rear too stiff, and the car being sketchy at high speeds during turn-in. Which is why I had to upgrade the front sway bar to match the rear. My first session the car was super neutral and it didnt too...

    I’ll get to the crash later... I have been wanting to install the Mazdaspeed Protege Racing beat front sway bar on the P5. This requires you to either remove or lower the subframe. Bushing are original from 2002, so they were not doing much... I had gotten a low mileage subframe from...

    NO, they are the standard ones. They have always been a good alternative to the RB ones. But most people have forgotten.

    Back out at Atlanta Motorsports Park in the Protege was a much different experience with the Progress rear sway bar. In the first 2 sessions the car rotated much more. After the second session I made some adjustments to the rear coilovers, and reduced my air pressure. The more I threw at the...

    Back in 2019 I installed the Racing Beat Rear Swaybar on the P5. It dramatically increased the amount of rotation the car had in initial turn in. Which lead to me spinning at Road Atlanta at Turn 1. At the time I dont think I was ready to deal with it. Fast forward now, I was advised by...

    I usually use my cellphone to record lap times and data. But I always wanted to install a tablet to do it instead. I had an old Android tablet for a few years around, that I used for our events to check people in and make sales at the booth. I test fit the tablet behind the center console...
