    Zoom zoom and zoom zoomier

    Well apparently I came across either the Mazda 6 club breaking up or just a couple Mazda 6s on the road. I was going home from work when a red Mazda6 and MazdaSpeed6 blew past me on the interstate. I didn't chase, just got off on my exit.

    Well they were going the same way as me and the Mazda6 (suspension, exhaust, wheels) revved up as I was behind him. So as we started to go the MS6 slowed so I could get beside the 6 and, as soon as I switched lanes, the 6 took off! I ran through second and by mid-third caught and passed him with ease, then slowed down.

    He slowed and the MS6 got next to me. Well after turning onto another street we finally caught a light. He was smiling and all pumped up. the light turned green and I thought sure I'd rape him out of the hole but he kept up pretty well through second and low third -- his front bumper was pretty much right next to my driver's door, but as i got in the upper RPMs of third I started pulling a bit more. I shut down due to speed with him at my back bumper and he did too.

    I turned into a parking lot to go back toward my house and he and the other 6 pulled in and were "surprised" I beat the MS6. I told them I had a couple goodies on there but they were still "surprised." Anyway the MS6 driver said he was sure he had me because he's "beat WRXs all the time." Yeah ... stock non-06s maybe. With bad drivers.

    Surprisingly well. I was impressed -- and they really are good looking cars I have to say. Then again I'm a fan of Mazdas. I think if you add a couple mods it could be a formidable car.

    How so?

    The MS6 was stock and racing a stage2 wrx and lost with his front at the rex's rear fender. If anything I would that the MS6 faired better than most would expect in this circumstance.

    I have to agree with DTR "Billy Blanks" Rex on this one.

    No where did it say that the ms6 was stock! It might not have been?

    But, nice kill anywho!

    I'm sure it was since they seem to be very low 14 sec cars stock and dude racing is a 13.8. They are fast cars, but they sound like shop vacs. I also hear that they are not too condusive to modding. I guess unlike us rexer's what you see is all you get with them.

    It just seems to me like every thread I have read with a MS6 in it makes them seem like they are sooo good and all and waaay better than wrx's. I'm not bashing the MS6 (I actually like it... alot ) I wonder how the MS6's fair with mods...
