SVTF vs. V6 MAZDA 6

I was on my way home last night when I pull next to a mazda 6 at the light, getting ready to go onto the on ramp of the freeway.yes, it had the V6 badging on it. Anyways, as soon as the light turned green he took off real quick and then slowed down, reeling me in. I took the baitr, and we're off up the on-ramp. I actually started about 1/2 car lenght behind, and STILL managed to catch up to him by end of 2nd. I was slowly pulling in 3rd, and by fourth I was gone. Good race. Didn't think I would catch a v6 version, especially starting from behind!

Nice Kill! I would have thought that the V6 Mazda 6 would have done better, but oh well.

Nice kill, looks like he was lookin' for it too.

Mazda 6 - V6
220hp @ 6,300
192lb-ft @ 5,000
Curb weight - 3,287. It's most likely downfall.

Hmmm. Can't find any performance specs.

Nice kill, was it a mtx or atx? If auto it would explain how you walked on him. Plus, weighing 3,300lbs and having just 220 hp makes hard to race with.

I drove the 3.0 V6 mazda 6s. I was thinking of getting one for the wife. I was very disapointed with the performance. It didn't feel like it had any pull. I was wondering how a focus would do against one.

The Mazda 6s manual and the contour svt is supposed to be a drivers race. And the focus svt is faster than the csvt. Nice kill.

Nice kill on the Mazda. I don't know about the Mazda is equal to the csvt. I eat alot of stuff with mine....I have a csvt also and no offense, but i really don't think a stock svt focus could take it..... U never know though. I could be wrong.
