Well I wasn't sure where to post this but I think this is the right place. I was doing a search for something and came across this. To get you guys in the mood, here is what the google search title looks like: F150online Forums - Slapped a Mazda MX6

ok and here is the post and as well I put the link at the bottom incase anyone cares to "reply" lol. and even funnier I'm wondering if the person he "beat" is on this board? :lol:

Slapped a Mazda MX6

Funny thing is I don't know if this is good or bad.

I have spent 20 fruitless minutes trying to find a road test on the MX6 to see how fast it is stock without any luck.

In any case, I finally escaped the voluntary imprisonment of being at my HobbyTown USA store for 37 consecutive days (retail is heck at Christmas) and took the long way home at 4:00 and cruised my favorite hunting ground, Dallas Highway.

Ran across a dark blue MX6 coupe that was very tastefully riced out (no stickers) nice rims and nice exhaust etc. Got clear of all traffic and played a bit till we came to a light.

Sort of did the head nod "yep let's do it" and hit it at the light.
Said Mazda obviously had the filter/exhaust done and I don't know what else. Was a manual trannie car. Got me by about two car lengths, maybe a bit less until the Wood got up on the cams and then it was no contest. This truck still amazes me in that once it gets to 3500 rpm or so on full throttle it pulls like no unblown vehicle I have ever driven. Speed limit on this 4 lane divided country highway is 55 and I let of at about 75 having several car lengths on him. He kept his foot in it and went on by. Not happy I suspect being beat by a big ugly black truck.

It's all good. Made my day I must say. Now, someone needs to come up with a road test to tell me if I beat a reasonably close vehicle or if it was a no-contest deal. I would bet a stock MX6 is probably a 16 second car but I just can't find the evidence.
Bill and btw, happy New Year to all.

sister car to the Probe.

FInd a review on the Probe and the MX6 numbers should be close.

Ouch, ouch, ouch.

If I only beat a Probe clone I had better delete the thread.

But the more important question, was it a 1G or a 2G?

Musta been a 2G :lol:

Had to have been a 2G i4, no way other wise. My old 1994 626 i4 was a slug, a turbodiesel could out run it (So it seemed). Now unless this was an F-150 Lightning, thats another story...

im assuming it's a 2nd gen I4...
who's to say it wasn't a 1st gen lx though? aren't they just as slow as a 2ng gen 4 banger?? and the v6 runs like a tenth slower then a 1st gen GT...of course the GT is easier to modify :)

it was an interesting story

phffftt!! wow he beat him in a drag ... that proves a [shizzle] load..:sigh: [fizzle]. some ppl are so stupid. they think if they win a drag then they have the greatest car on the earth... id like to see that truck run with the 6 at a track.. whether it be a 1st or 2nd gen, it will spank the [shizzle] out of the f150..

hmm... Good Point. I think the 2G i4 is about the same as the 1G DX/LX, but he 1st might be a bit faster. Eitherway, driver race against F150.

yeah this really should be directed towards that clueless dude on that Ford forum.
As for the 1G or 2G, I wondered that right away when originally reading it, of course all signs seem it indicate it was a four cylinder normally aspirated.

And someone mentioned the possibilty of it being a F150 Lighning, well I agree then that would be a whole new can of worms, to lose to that wouldn't be an embarrasment in any way.

And yeah it was interesting, at first it got me a bit angry but then now I look at it and just :lol:

The guy's not being a [dizzle] or anything, he's just posting about his race.

I made a name and backed up our car!
I wouldn't say he was not bing one at all, but anyway I'm gona go read your response.

EDIT: ok just read it, good work, very diplomatic and got the point acroos without seeming like a [dizzle].

Not really, December 27th and January 5th aren't that far away from each other. :D

Also note the advertisement on that page. "Mazda Body Kits...Pimp out your ride with new body kits..."

Talk about adding salt to the rice wound. :lol:
