I told himn what u said about the track, he said to watch on youtube where the stock mazdaspeed3 or in germany its called "mazda 3 mps" at Nurgenburg completes the track in 8 minutes 39 seconds..lol I watched it pretty impressive for a front driver.. So a roll is disavantage for a 4whd?? also update AMS fmic next mod!!

a roll is a disadvantage for a fwd or rwd with lots of power and wheelspin. we should not have any issues if you brake boost properly, awd should have the jump on just about anything from a low roll.

Power-to-weight ratio is what matters when you're already rolling, so you should not be surprised by this result. I'm guessing your X MR is over 3600lbs with you in it and making ~260whp. Removing traction from the equation does nothing but hurt you.

^^ please explain, power to weight ratio should not be as big of a factor since its already in motion....... i have seen +500whp civic hatches lose to under 400whp evos from a roll since they have traction issues and the evo does not due to the awd.

turboback open exhaust, Cai and tune
bye bye mazda 3, corvetes, 370Zs, bmws, porchas, etc
excluding ofcourse some MFukers top of the line
Z06s, M5s, gtrs, you know what i mean

a bigguer intercooler in your case without a tune, is pointless unless you upgrate the turbo

An actual track...and there is no form of racing that goes in a straight line from a roll, so remember that.

I disagree partially with Alex's post. It is true that a bigger intercooler without a tune is pointless, but depending on other mods and how hard the turbo is actually working, it can be quite beneficial. After a tune, that larger intercooler will help reduce the amount of heatsoak and definitely help keep the the other temps down. Meaning youll be able to run the car harder, longer. If you were to run a comparison of an Evo with a stock intercooler and one with a larger intercooler, but both cars have all of the same other mods, youll notice that the one with the smaller intercooler will start to lose power, a big reason because the motor is going to start to knock.

Alex, im also sure that you mean the lower level BMW's, Porche etc.....

SicLanEvo makes a valid point as well. Brake boosting properly will give you a huge advantage. Being at a slow roll, but generating a good amount of boost will still give you a pretty reputable launch ahead of your opponent.

So you dont have straight roads or straight streches of highway where you live? and to hell with going straight I own a evo, its meant to corner!

From a roll I have seen and also beaten many higher hp cars with lighter chassis....

I am always up for a thoughtful discussion like this. All the other comments now seem superfluous. Thank you for bringing a well thought out and reasoned comment to the discussion.
