    The Phaeton or a V8 (W8) Passat? The Passats are pretty weak with the V8, and I'm sure the Phaeton isn't all that much either. However, the W12 in the Phaeton...whoah!

    Not at all impressed with the Passat W8. They are really heavy (I think all W8's come with 4 motion) and don't really make that much power. I would think any modded rex should dispense with them easily.

    Thanks for the input, I saw one on the hiway and thought it was nice looking.

    didnt give a second thought though about racing it....

    just thought it was funny...the plate stated "VW8"...so I had to ask

    I'm pretty sure a stock Rex would waste one. I doubt they do anything below a mid 14-second 1/4 mile...and they sure as hell don't hit 60 as fast as we do.
