    You don't think he can beat you? Good, he can't unless he is running MAJOR boost

    He WILL NOT beat you. If hes got that mazdaspeed factory turbo, he has no chance. Even with higher than stock boost. I predict you will put at least 3-4 lenghts on him from 0-100. If hes got an aftermarket big turbo then it might be a whole different story.

    Race him and wreck him, import guys think that any 4 cylinder with a turbo is automatically super fast

    i think its an '07 mazdaspeed 3 is pretty damn quick for being a 4 banger hatchback, but a mazda 3 wont beat you. it would take lots of boost and spray at the least.

    Come on guys, do you think that Mazda is really running low 13s E.T.s? Capitalize on your torque curve. Four bangers may have peak power, but there torque curves are their achilles heel. Just make sure you practice you luanches.
    If it doesn't have a turbo or a V8, it doesn't belong on the road.

    Hey guys look it came back from the shop! I still need a bigger wing though...
