Jaguar busted my a** last night

So last night me and my wife decided to go to Applebees and on the way we got stopped by a red light. Then what looked to be possibly a 90s model or early 2000 jaguar pulled up next to us. There wasnt another set of headlights in sight so i thought ok, this will be fun, its been awhile. I have a sct tuner but i havent gotten any custom tunes yet, so its just tuned on the street tune. Well the light turns green and were off. He actually got the jump on me alittle but i thought i could catch him. I started gaining ground for a second and then i heard his passing gear or transmission kick down twice and that SOB was gone. All i could think of is how in the hell did that land yacht just beat me. We turned off at the next light and i gave him a thumbs up even though he just beat me and smiled. I think its time for some custom tunes, i thought that the street tune was perfect for my for daily driving and playing around, but after that im going to have to find someone with some good custom tunes.... I guess you cant win them all...

Ya, time for custom tunes!

Night and day difference from the canned tunes to a custom tune.

Check out Matt's SRL or Tony Wildman's tunes.

Yea your right about the custome tunes, Im going to check them out right now... Thanks... Joel i raced a guy at the track years ago in my mustang and he cussed me up and down and i have never forgotten that. He lost and made a complete *** of himself in front of everyone and didnt realize how stupid he looked. If you lose then you lose, you cant win them all.

I realize this is an old thread but, if the jag was an XJR you're looking at 370 hp, supercharged in a rather light bodied jag. I had a 99 XJR some years ago, and that sucker loved to run. I'm not certain that even a well tuned 6-liter would beat it.

Yeah those supercharged Jags have some power to them. And they are still making power as we're running out of steam. They aren't race cars but they do a pretty good impression of them.

He might have had a 6.0




12 cyl Jag that is LOL I agree I would probably not expect to beat one even with custom tunes
