  1. The 626 boys and girls representing at Daylesford Motorfest 16.02.2020 Later on in the day when we had some room to move.
  2. Because this is what owning a CB2 626 is all about !
  3. Hardtop, for me, prettier lines. For all round practicality, sedan!
  4. Sorry Sean, long gone. Are you after S1 or S2?
  5. It is always nice to see a hardtop in really good condition. I think you are grateful that you purchased a well looked after and maintained car?
  6. Just gotta ask the right people, bloke! You asked anybody on the RX626 FB page?
  7. Not a hardtop, but damn...........this car is mint!!!! https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1980-mazda-626-2/
  8. There still out there x(why)z. Cfamilyfix lives in Brooklyn and has just gotten a hold of this little gem, and it's been converted to rotary. Therefore, is now an RX626

  10. What width/profile tyre are you fitting? If you are fitting a 205/50, this means you are fitting a 6" tyre onto a 7" rim. Therefore, the shoulder of tyre will be narrower than the rim at its widest point. The lower profile also reduces shoulder roll under cornering. So you have a tapered side wall away from the edge of the rim at its widest point. Anyway, it's your car. I won't waste any more time. This is roughly what the tyre will look like fitted on to the rim.
  11. I am not sure if you are worried about the rim having enough clearance or the tyre, when under cornering load? To answer your question, yes, my 17s were about 1/2" (7mm) away from the strut. Did they ever contact under spirited driving and cornering, no! And let me tell you, I do not drive my RX626 like a grandpa. It was built to drive hard!!!! I am also not sure of your knowledge of tyres/rims, so I will try and explain a little. By up sizing your rims to 15, you done what we call 2 up or 2 sizes up. So, in a logical progression of tyre/rim sizes controlled by rolling diameter
  12. You have the correct fitment rims. If you are a person who worries about speedo accuracy, then you will want the replacement wheels to be as close in rolling diameter as your original ones. Most of us guys over here in Oz run a 205 up to 225 width tyre and alter the profile based on the rim diameter/width and offset, used. Or, you muck around with offsets to compensate for tyre widths BUT you open a Pandora's Box when you start looking for wider lower profile tyres because suddenly the "perfect fitment" tyre is either not made or so expensive, you cannot justify purchasing i
  13. If you are looking for parts, especially LH drive interior items, you need to look at Europe, in particular, Germany. Most exterior parts are the generally the same, so most markets - Asia, Australia, Europe, New Zealand can help you out. These FB pages have a great mix of all nations with RWD 626s. I strongly suggest you join - I do not think you will be disappointed. I am Philip Hans on these pages.
