stock for stock, the mazda may get it, just on power to weight ratio.

But, the R/T has a cam, and some other mods.

Is this from a dead stop? 1/8? 1/4? either way i think the R/T will take it.

Stock for stock that Mazdaspeed 3 has the win. It's got 265HP and 280ft-lbs of torque, a 14.1-14.4 sec 1/4 mile and a 0-60 under 6 seconds.

You should be good with your mods tho.

Too many variables to say for sure honestly, the drivers being the main one. Just race him, if you lose big deal... I doubt its some high stakes race. If you win then awesome! Chalk up another unsuspected win for the pickup trucks. :)

Did you forget to say torque steer?:funny: Unless the driver has raced his car on a drag strip and knows how to handle it, you will have him easy, even with out mods. However, if he knows his shit, then watch out.

It's probably an auto, what's he going to do to go faster than stomping gas? Enlighten me...

My money is definitely on the Mazda. A mild cam with ebay headers and duals with a 4 barrel intake? Wow, first off...what a combo. Even with an SCT tune and sticky tires I'd bet money on the Mazda to anything over 90mph.

They only run 5 lbs of boost in 1st gear so as to limit torque steer a lot.

Not in the Speed3, those are FWD only along with manual only. The MazdaSpeed6 is AWD and manual and will spank a Dak R/T.
