Mazda2 B-Spec Racecar Build

Phase 3: The Roll Cage and Wrap

With spring closing in, the Mazda 2 is making speedy progress to its completion. With all the performance modifications done and the interior completely removed we are ready to move onto phase three, the wrap and cage.
Designing and installing a roll cage is not a very simple task. To save us time and one massive headache we left it to the experts at S-Box Engineering to design the Mazda 2′s roll cage.

Phase 2: The Diet

If you’ve been following our blog, you know that we have teamed up with Morrie’s Minnetonka Mazda to build a Mazda2 B-Spec racecar for one of our loyal clients. To read about the racecar build from the beginning, check out our phase 1 blog post.

Since its mechanical makeover, our project B-Spec Mazda 2 has since been on a weight loss regimen. With the last encounter, the Mazda 2 had a full mechanical makeover to fulfill SCCA requirements in the performance aspect of things. The next part of this adventure takes us to the diet.

Weight plays a key factor with any vehicles performance. When designing new vehicles, many manufactures and engineers struggle with finding new ways to make cars lighter. It plagues engine performance, efficiency, and handling. In racing, it also has the same negative effects. Since we are working on a production vehicle and need to comply with SCCA guidelines for showroom stock, the only way to lose weight is to pitch things we don’t need (which is pretty much everything inside the 2).
