    well isn't the speed 3 faster than the speed 6? I know the 3 might have more horsepower but the wrx has a better 1/4 time.

    No speed 3 is not faster because its FWD and has torque cuts in 1st and 2nd gear to prevent wheel hop. The MS6 is AWD ( i have to say the subaru AWD is far superior since its rear based and thr MS6 is front based and put 50% back to the rear wheels when needed)

    Also the MS3 and thr MS6 have the same engine other then the detuning for the Speed 3.

Because on the road at 40 MPH the MS6 spools instantly and will pull on a stock WRX by a car lenght right away. Im not saying its impossible for the WRX to run a 13.77, im just saying the MS6 is a faster car and actually in a diff price range ...MSRP at 28k and WRX at 24k

    Both great new cars.

    I thought I read the 6 was considerably heavier than the 3.

    I dont like the 1-2 shift for the MS6.....there is a pause when engaging into 2nd. all the other gears are ok.

    I think there could be a recall for MS6's. A buddy of mine that works at a mazda dealer just had some bad cluth engagement into 1st and reverse. Even when i drive those MS6 from time to time it feels like first gear would feel like it would pop back out when i engage. Plus the clutch pedal feel sucks on that car.

    No theres no recall....i have to agree with you the CLUTCH pedal stock is such crap....but i adjusted it and now its perfect. Mazda put it higher then teh break and its a race clutch where there is a quick engagemtny, so you cant feather it. It takes getting used to

    Yea like 500lbs or somthing...but the speed 3 is detuned and FWD so its still slower.

    Mazda underrated the MS6 so it doesnt seem like its faster then their "sports car rx8"

    Kinda dumb if you ask me
