Potential Races in the Mazda

Having just gotten my new 2007 MZ3 sSport this past December, I'm just starting to get the looks from the public. Aside from just looks, there have also been cocky Scion tC and Mercedes Compressor drivers urging to race..hah. I was just curious as to what kinda road feedback everyone else has gotten. Also, would I have beaten the tC? I know it's got 162hp or so...and slightly more torque...but what would the outcome have been?

An unnecessary speeding ticket?

An accident that would hurt innocent people?

A mess in the road for the wrecker driver to clean up after the ambulance leaves with you in it.

Be wise, keep your racing on the track.

A stock tC and kompressor would be a competitive race at the strip:

1/4 Mile MPH: 89.477

2004 Mazda3s 5spd

1/4 Mile MPH: 92.300

2005 Mercedes C230 Kompressor
0- mile : 16.0 sec @ 85.0 mph(estimated)

This is more of what I was looking for, lol. Nobody said I was going to race them..seeing as how my background isn't huge....and the amount of traffic that day. Kudos to you man...you gave out the numbers rather than a fact of reality which I already know.

Re: Potential Races in the Mazda

With those numbers, I think it really depends on the driver.

Ah, if we had a TRD, it would be so much sweeter (no offense to MS).

Agreed.

TRD Supercharged tC would beat us by a good 2+ lengths in the 1/4.

I was honestly surprised the Kompressor is slower. My buddy, changed the pulley, intake, exhaust and put a chip on his wife's and it hauled.



Papa Ganish,

You just have to learn how to word your questions this site isn't a place that endorses street racing so you might get that response more often than not.

Welcome to the boards. Let me know if you have any questions.
