I think most of us who were defending the RX8 were saying on a circuit track, we KNOW it couldn't beat most of them in the straight line. But then again, the RX8 wasnt built for that, just as the GTO wasn't built to take corners and brake fast.....

But if I can afford an F430, I'm pretty sure I can afford the gas for it as well. LMAO

Yea, they should come out with hybrid trucks. Either way I would buy them. But pretty soon were going to find an alternate and safer source for energy.
