My New Car

Post by S7 Riff Raff on Mon Feb 13, 2012 8:33 pm

Yesterday my wife and i Traded in our cars for two brand new ones. We had a 2010 Mazda 3 and a 1998 Toyota Carolla. We went to a mazda Dealership to trade in. She got a brand new Mazda 6 Grand Touring and i got (you ready for this) a brand new MAZDASPEED3.

Here is a list of car owners that got their feelings hurt today and are either rethinking their car choice, mercilessly beating their wives, or committing suicide:

1. the Saleen Mustang owner getting owned from Light to light..... (Sorry KillerKlown... but its true.. its d@mn true)
2. The Corvette on the Loop 202 wondering how it happened....
and
3. The Brand new Camaro that broke down halfway through.....

Maybe this will sway yall decision making next time you are looking to purchase a new car.
There will be more victims as the days pass...
I will keep yall posted.
Thank you for your time..

That Mazda is a pretty decent car, I've had a look at them (not for myself, still very happy playing around with my IS200) but didn't like the interior...spent a lot of the time looking at the RX8 though, lol.

You'd know better than me whether they were racing back or not, but I will say that the Saleen must've been a sh1tty stock one. With the supercharger option, there is no way you're beating that.

Why'd you get rid of the Mazda 3 so quickly?

We needed a bigger car (my wife and i have a 7 month old son). When we went to the Mazda dealership, we found out we qualified for two... so i took advantage of it and got the car I've been wanting for a while (I initially wanted the MAZDASPEED6 but they are harder to find and slower.). I'm not sure what was up with that Saleen, but we wanted some, and i gave it to him... His feelings are quite hurt now.

I plan on making some mods and taking it down to the local track and gettin involved with some racing circuits. (Intake, Exhaust, and camshaft.)

i am happy you got 2 new cars and that you like picking on mustangs

now keep in mind it is a great car for the price i mean hell a 263hp turbocharged 2.3L is great plus the fact that everything you raced is double if not more your weight of your car and all wheel drive helps with launching and prevents alot of wheel slipping

i do think how ever the people you raced probably were not going all out (not sure but sounds like it) but could be wrong because any one could beat another car just based off of driver XP and lets face it most people that drive mustang are chicks /vets are mostly older men and camaro well younger people who probably(since a Trans am is the same thing as camaro i know this one all to well) have a sh1t load of speeding tickets.

im sure light to light the 425 naturally aspirated horsepower mustang burned out alot of the line

same goes with a vet basic model puts out 430hp with top end model ZR1 making 635hp i believe it is

Camaro basic v6 model is rated at 320Hp (which is crazy for a stock v6 btw)
and again the biggest v8 is 580hp



all and all you got a great car for the price and handles like a dream ....
like most of us racer in here i cant wait to see some drag times !!!
cheers


(and yes im a muscle car fan boy )
and before klowns get happy that i defended his stangs my T/A has never and will never see stang tail lights

agreed with coolhand post up some pics!!!!


best mods out the gate would be

air intakes
mufflers
throttle body spacers

those are the cheaper things and give u a good gain in hp

and please god keep up with service on this car
and little tid bit if you push your car hard AKA racing or jsut going fast when u go to stop your car dont just turn it off let it sit on for about 5mins to cool your supercharger... alot of people burn there turbo or supercharger out this way



higher end parts
Headers
Intake Manifold
better supercharger

@ Sticky.

Its Turboed.

Im sure that Vette would of crushed me, but it was maybe a half a mile.. My overall acceleration is better but he would of easily got me at a mile or longer. The dude in the Camaro probably didn't know what the hell he was doin but he pulled over and opened his hood as i kept going, and the saleen... still i have no idea but it was an onramp to the freeway and i beat him to the merge.

Yeah. I know alot about tuning. The intake / exhaust (throttle body spacer usually come hand in hand.) and a camshaft. I probably wont do more than that besides a computer i can change on the fly (it already has outstanding suspension and a toggle to change from race to street and a control for traction control.)

It weighs 2300 LBS (for some reason mazda's website says it weighs 3200....)

Haha. bring it on! I'm totally not a Ford or Mustang hater... Ford is actually my Favorite company.. Mazda is my second fave (for those of you who don't know, Mazda and Ford are in cahoots as is Isuzu / Chevy [hahaha] and Dodge / Mitsu)

I saw vids of MAZDASPEEDS pretty much destroying everything on closed track races. Thats when i fell in love... i really want to find a Dodge SRT4 (the neon one) Because those pieces of sh1t ARE surprisingly fast and a buddy of mine used to own one and thats the only car he ever talks about.......

Oh and Its only FWD. the MAZDASPEED6's where AWD. the 2013 3's are rumored to be AWD. MAZDASPEED's part department has an AWD conversion for the 3's so i could look into that eventually.

I personally love Mazda for one reason, Rodary engine. My dad leased the Mazda RX8 for a good 2 years and I personally love seeing a vehicle with such a small engine having such great performance. I'm just disappointed that both companies stopped production of the Ford Ranger and Mazda B series. Where am I going to get the next small truck after my 2000 Ford Ranger dies?

*Rotary.... But yeah. I know what you mean. Both The Ranger and the B series are both great reliable small trucks.

Yeah, definitely agree with Sticky about the racing. If you're going to be modding it AND taking it around the track, you're going to want to invest in proper race-spec engine parts. In the long run it's cheaper than messing up an engine.

Personally, I opted to get handling stuff for my car first, just because of the street-level benefit it gives. Brakes and race struts especially!Oh, and a good clutch.

Sounds like a good find. Definitely post up some pics when you've got em so that the rest of us can drool. I wish we were able to pay my wife's car off cuz I've been itching to get a new car. I'm currently driving a '02 Grand Prix GTP that I've had for almost 9.5 yrs. I love the car but I'd like to get something newer.

Sounds like a sweet car. Gotta love wasting some people in races. I finally got to drive my friends Audi s4 (me, him, and a friend in it +600 lbs total) and ran in to a 350z I've seen around town. Absolutely smoked him.

Sounds like a nice car Riff Raff (be sure to post some pics). I have always liked Mazdas. Especially the RX8. I have come close to buying one several times now. It's one of my favorite cars out there. And for the record, I like the MAZDASPEED 3's better than the 6's. For a hot hatch, it's pretty bad ass. Congratz!

Sounds good. And congrats! its a pretty bad ass car, no doubt.

my 590 hp SS loves to eat them for breakfast. they taste delicious. but not as delicious as 5.0's, SRT-8s and of course ricers.
