mazdaspeed 3 vs mustang GT vs GTO
30-120 GT didn't start pulling till ~100
GTO wasn't ready due to confusion with start speed we were rushed.
GTO: 5.7, intake and Exhaust
2008 Mustang GT: ignition,
intake, throttle body, full Exhaust,
tune, other bolt ons. last Dyno at 305 WHP with more mods
in video (no passengers and low on fuel)

2010 Mazdaspeed3 Sport 2.3L Turbo Start Up, Quick Tour, & Rev With Exhaust View - 25K (Smiley Car)
This Smiley has the 2.3L DOHC turbocharged 4 cyl which pumps out that fury to
the front wheels through a 6 Speed Manual gearbox. Same engine from the
Mazda CX-7 but I accidentally said CX-9 in the video.
I absolutely love these but my only issue with them is the poor MPG's & of

The second is stage 1 with a somewhat conservative tune.
The last MS3 is full bolt ons/ and Freek Tune.
MazdaSpeed 3 at Race City Raceway. (Tire Overheating)
Venue: Race City, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Car: 2007 MazdaSpeed 3
Tires: Michelin Pilot Sport A/S
Mods: CAI. Stiffer Engine and Transmission mounts. Stock alignment max out
at -1.3 degrees camber at front. Toe is 0 all around. Everything else stock
Driver: Marc S
A few runs with syncronized speedo reading. Trying different lines for
corner 7. Back tire suddenly losing traction at 4:17 even though keeping
the tires within its known performance limits. Its a bit freaky at 125km/h.
I ended session early to inspect. Most likely explaination is overheating
of tires. 2nd lap on this video shows missing 3 apexs badly possibly due to
reduced traction. This video has 10 minutes before it and I was running it
hard the whole time.
Ford Focus ST vs. MazdaSpeed3 Review - Everyday Driver
The Ford Focus ST is the Hot-Hatch of the moment. But the idea of sending
huge power to the front wheels of a hatch is also showcased in the
