Ice Bowl! - EVO Vs STI Snow Challenge
We put two hot rally rockets on ice to find out which one excels in extreme
snow conditions. Read the story here:
Extreme cold start -33C (-27,4F), no pre-heat, Mazdaspeed 6 turbo
Please, read description below! It will most likely answer your question.
We were on a ski trip in northern Finland. The whole week was freezing,
-25C to -35C all the time. Obviously, it was too cold to ski. The car layed
completely unused on a parking lot for five days. When leaving, I had to do
this cold start, and thought it would be worth filming. Battery was
original, about five years old, and it survived really well. No Engine
heater, battery heater/charger or any other device was used. Pure cold
Idle revs are higher at low temperatures, thanks to automatic choke. Nobody
touches the accelerator at any time. I'm actually releasing the clutch @
0:43 to keep revs low, I thought cold and thick transmission oil would
cause some troubles to engine and lower the revs. If I remember correctly,
idle revs were somewhere around 2500 - 3000 rpm during the start.
The coldest start before this was -22C. It's much more gentle for the
engine than this. However, after this I got new battery and a block heater,
just in case. I know continuous starts like this will kill the engine very
quick, but doing it once hardly did any damage. Car had 150 000km (almost
100 000 miles) on it when I sold it, and it still worked fine.
HKS Mazda Speed 3
This beautiful machine belongs to my friend Cyle. He was down for the week

So we got together and made a little clip showcasing his Speed 3.
