Hi, a coworker said to me that his mazda 3 hatchback with a 2.3 is faster than my mazda 6 v6 because of the weight. Ok, I can believe that the 3 is faster in the corners, but overall, I really don't believe it is faster. The 6 V6 with a manual tranny is a pretty fast car. I don't want to do a street race so, which one you think is faster overall? The 2 cars have a manual gearbox and I believe his car is a 2007 or 2008. Somebody did a similar race?
