Hell my boosted r32 couldn't keep up with a ECU modded SRT8 magnum. Those things are American muscle with German technology. Let me guess... you can take the new 5.0 also.

nope not a new 5.0 but i could and did take a srt-8 300c. and im sorry but if your boosted r32 could not pull a srt-8 magnum with just a tune then your shit was slow cuz a tune dosent do much for a srt-8 unless it has full boltons

Not to hard to believe. I used to beat SRT8s in my (at the time) bone stock SRT4 Neon all the time... which was also a 13.7-14.0 rated car. I really haven't raced anyone yet in my S2+ GTI, but I'm sure I'll run into something sooner than later. A stage 2 GTI feels as fast or maybe slightly faster than a stage 1 SRT4 Neon.

I could believe it that you pulled on it. I did a quarter mile in 13.7. I also did a run against a G8 GT and put 2+ cars and he would only start catching up when we hit 120. They have a lil less horsepower than the SRT8 but also weigh 200-300lbs less. Those automatic transmissions don't help at all too.

OK we are peeing up stream. W/O proof everybody car is faster that the other. The boys over at SRT8 connection forum is calling out any GTI that wants to try. Maybe we can solve this at the track one day.

And if he had extra weight in his car, that might explain your edge. Good run "

and my 13.8 @ 105mph is on A/S i know i could and will do batter with summers. and who know how many miles are on hes car could have over 100k
With drag racing, even with a shitty 60ft (which will explain a bad et.) your trap speed will still be within a mph or 2 of your best run... With roll races your trap speed comes into more of a play than your et.

I'm sorry but that's hard to believe. I ran a 300c srt-8 once when my 135 was stock and it was pretty damn even. I did notice after that my AC was on but oh well haha. Never had a problem with a stock skittle though...

Believe it or not, I don't care. I have more important things to do than lie about a street race that took place six years ago. I raced an SRT8 Charger from stop light to stop light 3 consectutive times and won each time by a car or so. Factory freak? who knows, but it happened.
