Default ahh ATCO tonight!!

ATCO raceway.

IDK if I'm running my car, I might. But my friend has a rx8 also, greddy turbo puttin out about 280 to the wheels. But he's racing our other friend who has a 2002 Firebird with the Corvette LS1 engine in it. Makes about 325 since he has the ram air package, NA just exhaust.


Can't wait, Who do you think is going to win?!?!

The Firebird most definitly. The RX8 rotary engine doesn't make a lot of torque, even with a turbo, and torque is what you need to get off the line. The Firebird will smoke it off the line and all the way down the track.

Nah I can almost guarantee the Firebird will kick the crap out of the RX8.

Yeah, but like I said, low torque.

Good old American muscle FTW!
