i have raced a few. the 2.0s seem to not able to keep up at all. i think all of them were automatics

the 2.3s, while they look beautiful, cant take me in a straight line either. i think its because they are heavier. one time a blue one kept up with me pretty good off the line, but once i pulled second i had him.

i played with one of the new mazdaspeeds on some backroads in my dads car, not really a race. that thing is an all around great machine, i had it in the twisties, but when the road straightened out, his 100hp advantage showed itself haha.
