    So it`s literally brand new, hardly 25 miles on it, but the FX350 is so far a grabby beast. Grabbier even than the ceramic FX400 it replaced. It doesn`t chatter, but I did stall the car about twelve times before the end of my own damn street. LOL. It hits literally right off the floor adn there is no sweet spot. It`s either not going or it`s all in. I don`t mind and I`m sure I`ll acclimate, and maybe it`ll get more compliant as it breaks in. I really want to lean on it as I also have new tires (some nice big fat 265/35/18s, too) but I absolutely have to let this one break in properly.

    As eventually happens with all of us, the Mazda is going away. Nope, nothing wrong, not a fit of rage or anything like that. Historically I seem to prefer the building to the actual ownership, and as far as I'm concerned the build is done (save for a few trivial details like putting in the red carpet I wanted). She's going to a well known member here (I'll let him disclose if he chooses) so I know she'll have a good home. He got a hell of a deal, I get to know the car isn't going to some choad.
