Mazda says this car does a 0-60 in 6.2 seconds. How is that possible when people are running 13.7 stock?

mazda can say whatever they want to say. c&d ran a 5.4s 0-60 and a 13.9s 1/4 @99mph.

Even worse...they ran a 14 flat (February 2006).

I would imagine if they got a 5.4 and 14 without powershifting at all, that when we're running 13.7 at the track that 0-60's are closer to 5.2. 5.0 for the down piped guys

So why would Mazda put out a car and give such false stats on it? Doesnt make sense to bring down you own car right?

better to under estimate than over estimate which would essentially be false marketing

i work for mazda. i found out the exact reason. they didnt want another rx-8. they didnt want a car that was rated at something, and then was found out to really produce like 30 hp less. so they under rate power rating and accel times and if customers find out they are faster and produce more power, then they are happy.

I think its best to look at it like this.. The average driver... under average conditions... with average wear / tear / and strain on the average speed6... will average the times mazda posted... making them 100% accurate...

If they post "well under 100% perfect conditions.. with PERFECT driver... perfect car. perfect fuel.. you could run 13.5

Then.. since only 1 person can be "Perfect" no one would get the listed times and then complain and force another "recall"...

Any and all mazdaspeed6's can break into 13's with some good driving .. good fuel... and reasonable temperatures.. What most drag racers will tell ya... the slightest "mess-up" of any sort can mean the difference between 13.9 and 14.5's...

Hell i ran a 14.8 once... and then ran two.. back to back 13.9's... and then a 14.2.. then a 13.7....

Lack-of-power.. issues.. heat soak.. TMIC... un-tested BRAND new engine design / setup... bla bla bla.. lots of factors

people are free to believe whatever they want, but:

1. 100 octane (or higher) in the tank is not stock (nor cai nor muffler delete)

2. times achieved thru launches that bust the axle mounts or rear differentials (see the many threads) do not qualify as stock times (nor does driving down cliffs nor driving with hurricane tailwinds)

sorry to burst anyone's bubble

13.7 on 93 octane isn't that hard. if you're someone who knows how to launch the car consistently, it's completely attainable without thrashing the car.

I suspect that you are trolling here occasionally to raise crap. Looks like he left when everyone gave him intelligent answers. What are the RSX Type S' dyno'ing at stock anyway?

Im just asking questions and anything I say is true. Mazda did give those stats. I have no idea what the type s is dynoing at, 200 crank hp take 20% off that around 150-160 to the wheels.

PS. if you have a problem I live in chicago ill give you my number and you can meet me and tell me your point of view of instead of trying to do it over the internet

Um, check out the pronouns...at no time did I say that this is the way the I did it. I was speaking in generalities, hence "if YOU'RE someone" etc. etc.

I don't think anyone mentioned this, but they made the ms6 seem slower cause they didn't want their flagship sports car (rx8) to be slower than a family sedan. =)

Chevy used to do something similar to this as well. When they had the 3.8 turbo trans am they listed its horsepower about 50 short of what it really was so that it wasnt higher than the vette for that year

The rsx guys love to talk down every other car including the ms6. Go check clubrsx and you'll see. When they get beat, they usually revert back to their old 'well I have a honda/acura and it's more reliable' or 'my interior is better, lol'. Truth the rsx-s is dog slow compared to ms6 stock for stock. It's a high 14s car on the best day, down a hill with a tailwind. And with all their bolt-ons, reflashes or turbos, I'm sure a bone stock ms6 would probably still keep up with the majority. Thank god there's an aftermarket for them or else they'll get beat by the tamest of the modern family sedans. Same goes for the members of clubsi where the biggest bunch of douche-bag crybabies hang out.

So the trolls coming in here and trash talking are most likely from one of those two clubs. The subaru and VW guys generally seem more respectful of other cars besides their own.

Hell, an SVT Focus can beat an RSX-S and it has 30 less horsies. I do like the interiors on them though (and since my reflash, I would say they are more consistent), but they are an entirely different class of car so why is this even coming up????.
