    Ohhh boy E55 amg challenged me

    So I was on the Local bmw forum and they have a ton of guys that talk so much smack about subies and especially STi's.. so I called any of these m3 guys out.. Most of them are stock.. None of them want to race but this one Dude with a 2005 E55 Amg called me out. He actually lives 10 minuts away and said he has seen my car. also said it sounds sick!
    Anyways he is stock.. ( don't think you can do much to those things anyways) 2005 model 469 Bhp
    516 lbs Tourqe
    car weighs 4087
    I said sure for fun and he said he even wants to give me the advantage and go from a stop.
    I am a pretty good launcher tho..
    Do I have a chance? from a roll. I put 3 cars on a e46 me witha exhaust it was a 6 speed too These are my mods

    I see a vicious spanking in your future, especially once you get above 100mph

    No, it wont be close. You may damn well lose by 3-4 car lengths. The thing with a car like that is you dont have to think about shift points or be good at it because all you do is mash the pedal to the floor. Someone who cant race worth a crap with a manual could turn out great times in an E55.

    Very true

    Good point about the mashing of the gas.. How much hp would it take to take this beast?

    Although you have a very nice car, the other's a beast. I'd say you'll have fun losing.

    The E55 AMG runs low 12's stock, if you put a set of slicks on it they can run into the 11's. And the worst part about it is, the car is automatic so the driver cannot mess up . Nice death in advance hehe, can you get it on video tape tho?
