    WRX vs Magnum R/T

    WOW. I was really shocked at how slow this car was. I know it's big and heavy but I expected a better race since it was a 5.7 HEMI. Without launching by the time we hit 80mph I had 1 1/2 cars on him.

    It sounded mean but I'm thinking someone put HEMI badging on a normal Magnum. Anyone else run an R/T before? Same results or different?

    yes, I ran a modded one and walked him pretty bad. He had some goodies, maybe even FI, I dunno, but It definitely was lowered, on rims, with exhaust. My mods are DBZ 18G /TXS TMIC, w/supporting mods.

    I ran one w/ exhaust at the track once, needless to say I had a few bus lenghts on the guy by the end. He ran a 14.7 to my 12.xx something

    OUCH.. I had no clue.. I thought they were allot faster then that. I guess this was a real R/T.

    There was no doubt this guy had an exhaust on it. The sounds was awesom. I'm wondering what else he had done to it.

    You guys are racing retards How did a Magnum run 14.7 WITH exhaust when they run 14.5 stock? Its not the hemis fault I destroyed a WRX on the freeway over the weekend. We were merging at the same time and he was trying to get into my lane and get ahead of me. Went from about 50mph-90mph and I had a good 4 lengths on him at least. I am not stock and the 300C runs faster than the Magnum but they still shouldnt be THAT slow.

    dude..... you're the racing moron. 14.5 is MAGAZINE TIME, meaning professional driver, good track conditions. IDIOT.

    Actually, magazine times are more like 14.6-14.8

    Magnum Hemi R/T vs Stage 1 WRX

    I raced a Hemi Magnum tonight. it was bone stock from what i could tell and a middled aged guy driving it hard. I was back about 50 yrds watching him gun it from every stop he came to so I decided to catch up and see what he would do. we pulled up a light side by side, nothing in front of us on the road and he was making sure I knew it was a hemi by reving it up several times, looking at his budding he the passenger seat and laughing. light turns green and we are off -- he spun a little but not much...before i was out of first gear, i was probably 2 cars in front of him, by the end of 2nd, 4 or so lengths. Midway through 3rd i let off...a few seconds later he came speeding by ...i dont know if he thought he actually won or not. i thought it would have given more of a race than that...and i actually had a thought that i may lose that race before pulling up next to him. my wife said that she thought it would have been a lot closer being the hemi one and laughed when he sped by after i was slowing down...

    grayson, nice run.

    those things are kinda quick. anyways, when you shut down, tap your brakes so the guy knows that you shut down, so he doesnt think he won.
