Buy another car ... you obviously like complaining about the one you've got!

If you treat your car like ^&*(, then you're car will drive like ^&*(

DUH!!!

idk about the mx6's aws but my guess is there should be a pivot point that would have to have a brace put in, welded or bolted to another part of the suspension.

i c

did anyone try it??

imagine you 4ws goes on safety mode(2ws) and your rear wheels can still turn(by hand) so they will turn on the road.

try it.

just unplug your Control unit plug (in the boot on the left side) c what i mean.

Soz pup, have you worked out how to overcome your lack power problem yet?

Go to your local mazda wrecker and have a looksee ... they should know ...

If not ... call mazda about it ... they seem to be very helpful to me

I think the rear end is different on the 2ws and 4ws ... the arrangement is more simple ... which makes sense hey!

Honestly ... it should be ok, I've heard no problems from anyone else ... and there are plenty of people with failed 4ws.

Either that ... or try going RWD ... I hear the RX8 running gear fits right in! :)

Baja_wes had a post a little while ago about fitting the KL N-S rather than our E-W if you wanna give that some thought ... I know I am (but then I hate FWD :p)

4ws is GREAT: WHEN IT WORKS :)

i really wan't to keep the 4ws. car feel loose on turns, my back just wobles , since the 4ws started to crap itself..(scared to go more than 70 with it. (hard to keep it straight))

i just hope this guys has one.

if not i 'll get the rear setup from the 2ws model. from somewhere (should be hard to find)

how did they get the turning circle fixed , obviously they had to do something about our "10 meters turning circle" when in 2ws mode.

:)
