keep in mind that my car wont weigh as much as his!

Well seeing that you are currently at 279 hp without tuning, I would say that you do have a shot. Gonna be pretty much a drivers race.

svteric 04-09-2008 07:08 PM

his car is not tune yet! sorry i worded it wrong!

Weldman0730 04-09-2008 07:18 PM

sorry im not familiar with mazdas, but is his a standard tranny or an auto? Also it will depend on what kind of suspension he has and what you have, in other words if your car cant handle the power it has and get it to the ground, then your going to lose, but other factors come into play with this such as a LSD and the weight over the drive wheels.

all in all you both have fast cars and like superfocusman said it will probably come down to a drivers race, and the way your racing them(autoX, drag, ect, ect, ect).

svteric 04-09-2008 07:30 PM

yeah its going to be a drag.. and all mazdaspeed3's are 6 speed manual.

IF you can drive, you have a great shot. you do have weight on your side, and power is close. driving will play a big roll.

some tips as always with dragging, drop weight. take out your spare, run on very low fuel, empty washer fluid, and i dunno what else. also, for traction lower front tire pressure, slightly

have you taken your car to a drag strip? that will help give you a better idea of how to launch and stuff with best times.

Weldman0730 04-09-2008 08:40 PM

^^ thats a good match up then, If it were me and I was dead set on beating my friend it would go to the drag strip and practice launching and get the best shift points in my head before I tried to race him.

what does th mazda have done to it???


i think it will be a drivers race, the mazdas are quick, but if your putting down 279 without a tune, than thats going to be a close race,

when you race him get someone to get a video so we can see...

Don't the 3's have awd? Or is it just the 6's? If he has awd and he gets a tune I can see him beating you.
