    First encounter with a Mazdaspeed3.

    So I was going up this really long, empty, wide, slightly uphill street that goes all the way up to my community (Tampa for you Socal people) at ~40 in 3rd gear (kinda slowly because I had just come out of a right turn) when I noticed somebody tailgating me. He then backed off, changed lanes, and tried to do a fly-by, and I just hit the gas in 3rd and waited for it to spool. He caught up for a while, but once I spooled I pulled on him pretty hard.

    My first ever Mazda kill, actually

    So he was trying to pass you because you were driving (admittedly) slow, and you stomped the gas?

    Where is the race?

    Maybe I'll sound dumb with this, but how'd you know it was a MS3?

    No. Maybe I worded it kind of oddly, but this is what happened:
    I sped up a little after I turned, to maybe around 50, and since he backed off a little too he was a fair distance behind me. At THIS point he tried to fly by me. I guess I did just stomp on the gas, but he was trying.

    Since it was nighttime, I couldn't tell at first; then he ended up going into the same gate as I use in my community, and I let him pass by me. I saw the mazdaspeed3 badge on his trunk.

    I have no doubt you would have beaten him.... but it still doesn't sound like there was much of a race going on here.

    ok i work for mazda... that was not a MS3 if he was actually going.

    but it sounds like someone went to pass you and you became a hardass and then they realized it and were like whatever and let you do your thing

    No, this dude TRIED until atleast ~80 mph. I don't think you need to floor it to that kinda speed to pass someone going 50.

    BS? Are you saying a WRX w/ 280whp can't take an ms3?
