Reading these race stories, Im kinda shocked.
Im assuming these were all 6mt cars with average drivers.
My friends 5.0 that I raced and test drove is a automatic and damn that that car move.
He ran a 12.2 with a cai, tune, exhaust( axle back) and gears (4 10) and street tires(285s)
His car ridiculously outlaunches mine( both automatic). And since we have poor top end( on stock turbos) I really cant see how there is even a comparison between these cars.
