    Whooped by a Mazda

    Ok guys here it is. I don't have the SS anymore it's a long story, but I did pick up a 2002 Z28 today with 32,000 miles. Of course I had to go and show off the car to my friends but on the way back home there was this brand new Mazda SUV thing that kept screwing with me. So I told my self when he takes off again I am going to punch it and smoke this thing!! Boy was I wrong. I know it wasn't some suped up car. It still had the paper plate on the back. Well when he took off I waited for him to start pulling away (figuring I was gonna just wiz right past him). When I floored it ( at about 70mph) the damn thing kept pulling away from me!! My car don't really start to pull until around 3500 rpm. Once I started turning rpm's I started to catch him but that wasn't until about 120 mph. What do you guys think? I have attached some pics of the car. Should this have happened?

    I'm sure the CX-7 runs good with 244 hp, but there is no way it will keep up with a good running Z28...

    My car is a stock Z28 with edel Brock Exhuast (which has got to go)! I am pretty sure this mazda was stock. The thing was brand new. Like I said I waited for him to Start pulling then I mashed it and he kept pulling. I was at 70 mph and when my down shifted it only went to about 2500 rpm. When I hit 3500 to 4000 rpm I started to catch him pretty quick. But I didn't think he would pull away from me like that. My car has 32,000 miles maybe the converters are not flowing right or something. Thats ok. It will be a bad ass street car before long.

    When you downshifted your engines rpm's should of been WAY higher. Somewhere around 4000 rpm, sounds like a transmission problem to me. Are you A4 or M6?

    It's an 2002 Z28 A4. I bought the car for a street car. So everything is going to be changed anyway. At 60 mph my car will downshift to about 4000 to 4500 rpm and slam you back in the seat. It reaches 110 in a few seconds. But at 70 to 75 it only shifts into 3rd gear. It doesn't drop to second. It would over rev if it would. He caught me in the middle of a lull gear change and the car wasn't in it's sweet spot. It's not the transmission because it shifts very strong. Like I said, when I got to about 4000 rpm I started pulling on him fast.

    HAHAHAHA. I might be making this sound worse than what it is. I did catch the guy. But firgured he wouldn't pull on the mighty LS1 at all. I just gave him to much credit. I let kim get about a car on me before I punched it. I am sure if I would have hit it when he did that would not have happened.

    The embarrassment to the LS1 crowd is bad. I think a ban stick whooping is in order for this tragedy!

    I just looked at the specs on Mazda and they really don't sound to bad for a little SUV. The 3700 lbs is a bit heavy for the 244HP though.
