**VIDEOS** Mazdaspeed 3 or 350z?

alright, wasnt sure where to post this but

ok, basically, i have a mazdaspeed 3 and my good friends has an 04 350z...both are bone stock. Who do you guys think should be the car winning the races? i understand its all the driver, but if each car had perfect shifts, who should be the victor?

so we went to and abandoned air strip and raced in all different types of situations... i took him in the 40 roll, he took me in a couple races, and other than that it was dead even. are these the kind of results i should be expecting or am i just a bad driver. GIMME SOME TIPS, i need something to get the extra edge on him. i was hoppin to kick his ass but its sooooo close everytime and the kid likes to talk smack. we litteraly went from 20-135 nose to nose. ive seen videos on youtube of a stock ms3 taking a 350z with exhaust and intake, and i cant even really beat his stock one. i know theres a possiblilty that on youtube the kid didnt know how to drive, BUT IM GETTIN FRUSTRATED!

EDIT check out the vids

i basically pulled him after third...my prob is that i def need to shift earlier and then ill beat him every time. i need to find a track though, im done with this public road shit...even though there are rarely cars on that road. we did it from a 20 becuase we couldnt really do it from a dig...when i punch it in first from 20, its hard to get that shift quick enough. yea i know the vids are real crap quality.


...in the last two vids i dropped off right after the finish line, dont think he won 8)

Re: Mazdaspeed 3 or 350z

Should probably be pretty close. The 350z has a traction advantage out of the hole, but after that it should be somewhat even. Don't forget he has a decent HP advantage on you, and a 350z doesn't weigh that much more then a speed 3 does (sadly).

I still never figured out how Mazda went from a 2850lb hatchback to a 2950lb hatch back for the 07+ model year and for the speed 3 managed to find another 300lbs on top of that (it weighs ~3200lbs)

To me I say the Speed but that is my opinion. Not cause I have one either. I just find the 350 not as comfortable and has more blind spots and such. When you are short like me you find the cars like the RSX and the 350 harder to drive.

Oops. Nice.

My fault. Lack of reading on my part. :P

I would say Speed.

Re: Mazdaspeed 3 or 350z

one is a hatch back / wagon

and the other one is a coupe, or even a convertible.

one is FWD and the other RWD.

one is NA 6 cyl, and the other is a FI 4 cyl.

2 different beast.
