zlaja dude just post the time slip...and then be like IN YOUR FACE....well unless ur BSing...but im not gonna assume

Cajun Boy876 I posted the numbers....I dont think the car makes 315hp. It comes stock with 280 and I doubt a CAI raaises it by 35hp lol.

02ztsian There is a direct correlation between 1/4 mile mph, vehicle weight and horsepower. Plugging in the numbers, assuming a driver weight of around 180, you must be putting down 315 hp at the crank. There are all sorts of online calculators to do the number crunching but realistically only a timeslip will tell the true numbers.

Reeve There are a couple reasons you might be faster than the mags tested. The first one is easy. The mags all test box stock cars and your is modded. They also test the cars on the street and the traction of a prepped track is nowhere near as slick as the street. I also know that in the case of Motortrend they will never rev the motor past redline in a test even if it would run faster. That is not going to be the case in the MS6 because they don't make that much power up in the high revs. Motortrend also will not powershift the test cars just speedshift. Anyway nice times! I wanted a MS6 but they cost too much, take supreme and don't get the mileage I wanted.

Arkaign Dashhawk is a great tool, and lots of fun, just take into account the polling data refresh, and the limitations of what it can tell you.

Launching AWD, it all depends on traction and torque curve. With little AWD buggers like the STI/EVO, you have to launch a shade higher so you don't bog off the line, a little wheel spin is fine. With heavier stuff like the Audis and MS6, you can tone it down a shade, as your torque hits lower. Either way, drag launching AWD = lots of strain on the drivetrain. The MS6 is built tons better than the GSX ever was, but beware too many drag launches, as something will inevitably break earlier than you'd like.

Cajun Boy876 It wasnt bad it was just an early shift. It wasnt to bad though. Just couldnt let me think i had a sub 5 0-60 run, *sniff*. I think the Speed 6 is the fastest car for the price. 23k=mid to high 13sec car.

I sure as hell know I wasnt spinning at 60. Because the tires didnt even spin.
Dashhawk can't give you exact readings for a whole bunch of reasons.

Just google Dashhawk inaccuracy / etc, and you'll see what I'm talking about :

Stuff like that. A bad shift and still a 13.4 in that? Insane lol.

Still think im bullshitting. But then again not many people know they have AWD. But then again thats where they get all their weight from. The car doesnt feel heavy either, its not as agile as the focus though.

If you look at the last video you can see the difference a good driver makes. Thats what my launched look compared to the Stock Gt Mustang that was next to me.

I promise Im not bull shitting I have no reason to. Its not my car not like im making it faster than it is. I was just shocked at the time it posted by a relativly new driver. I will admit I probably cant recreate that launch I did it was just luck. Trust me I debadge the MazdaSpeed 6, so not many people know what you are driving across town. Lets just say its one of the funnest sleepers to be cruising around in. I love the looks of people in the passenger car when they hear the DV, I think its a DV. I tried getting my dad to put a BOV but he isnt to big into it.

Does anybody know how to properly launch AWD. I reved to 5k drop the clutch and as soon as I droped it I put the gas pedal to the ground. Then just shifted at 7k.

Cajun Boy876 There are plenty Stock i mean completly stock MS6 that can go faster then I posted. Just with a intake and exhaust the MS6 is over 300hp. I think it has about 15hp more than the MS6. The only reason the MS6 is quick is because of the awd drive system. Out outlaunched the shit out of the mustang like he wasnt even moving.
