killed an RX-8

so i can her this guy has an intake and exhaust, his car is lowered as well, and its even a stick, pull up next to him at a stop light and i know my lane is gonna run out in about 300 ft. the low down, my truck is stock aside from DIY intake, 3"down pipe, and stacks. nothing to it, even stock tire size and height.

light goes green and we both are gunning it, and i smoked this car by atleast half a truck length, he was runnin just a little slower than me and in the blind spot, you obs guys know what im talking about. it was just classic, guy wouldnt pull up next to me at the next three lights after that, i was just rolling the whole time

RX8 vs modded Cummins... Cummins lost. Either your guy couldnt drive or he didn't realize he was racing you.

o no i work on mazdas and the rx-8 is a turd out of the hole, and even still they r not that fast, u have to have them up around 9,000 rpm to get them moveing. put a punk in it that can't drive and u could beat him with a go kart. but not to rag on the rx-8 it will blow your mind in a corner. the suspension looks like a jungle gym.

RX8's are very weak! beat one at the track with a slow 16 sec run. he was waiting for me because he thought he could take me... I was running a Low tune the first time. still only ran a 15.6 but he was not catching me this time...

Something is wrong with my truck so its slow. but I was checking out the RX-8 forums and lots of those guys are very disappointed with their cars performance.
