My brother has a 2011 mazda3 2.5auto. Neither of us have mods. I can wax him from any point in a race whether he is shifting it himself or just has it in drive. From a dig, from a 20,40,60,70,80 roll we have tried it all.
Ok it's more like slowly pull away. Slow being the key word for both cars.
If anyone is interested I borrowed a friends G-tech. I made 3 quarter mile runs.
It shows the 0-60 times also. My best was 7.97 and 15.95 at like 89.7mph.
Not bad. I'm at 2500ft of elevation. This was without any real launch because these cars just wheel hop themselves to death.
An auto mazda6 is about a full second slower. Mazda3 2.5auto is about a half second slower.
I'm planning to get a Corksport SRI, second cat delete a the rear engine mount and go at it again in the spring. Probably good for an earth shattering 15.7 at 90.5mph
Honestly these cars are pretty fun to drive with the 6 speed manual. Mazda should have made these cars with a 200hp 2.5 to begin with. I'd keep it for a long time if they did. Just feels a bit underpowered at times.
Slate6 I would imagine your car can run close to the times I put down on the G-tech ...
