taking into account the horrible effects of understeer that it creates. A Rwd or Awd car will always be able to beat a Fwd car in AutoX.
No offense but it is kind of ignorant to say that. There are so may different senarios that could prove that false. I will agree that after a certain point FWD will become inferior though.

Your signature is opinionated, but I will have to comment anyway. How can you classify Honda as rice? Just because they are the ones that , in some fashion, kindled the sport compact car movement doesn't make them rice. Honda doesnt make rice, the people that buy Hondas (and every other make of car) are the ones who create rice. Next time you pick up a sack of rice in the super market and find that it is made by Honda then let me know :licker:

I dont see to many crown vic's and pick-ups at the track, so I assumed that we left those out also. Like I said in a previous post I have seen FWD cars beat a Mustang Cobra, Corvette Grand sport, and the list goes on. I agree that it is a lot to do with drivers also, but I am just stating what I see.

I said what I said because he left the post open for arguement. He gave a general statement and didn't give any reason and he did not elaborate on the statement. :licker: Basically I just wanted to argue, lol.

Trust me, I am not for FWD. My next car will be RWD, hopefully a 97 240SX. I also know that if you give the same driver a FWD car and a RWD car and both cars are at about the same performance level then the RWD car would win.:

I'm pretty sure those are just R&T's renderings, not what it is actually going to like. at least I hope this is the case

get the Zo6 and use the extra 15k u saved, from the viper and mod the zo6, so in all there is no comparison, unless it was a Z06 with 15k in mods vs. a stock viper, in which the z06 would kick the viper outa the picture...but then u can also put all that money into a down payment for a house, get a 5k 5.0 mustang , biuld that up and compete with the vipers and zo6....

I think its so stupid how people say with the money you saved from not buying the viper mod up the z06. Then why don't you go buy a Mazda MP3 (which handles as good as z06) and with the money you saved from not buying the z06 mod up the mp3 to DESTROY the z06.


This is a stock vs. stock .vs stock comparison and with that being said the viper will take both the z06 and cobra.

well while ur busy saying its stupid, i stated the obvious, people always say dat cuz its true, and since i was comparing a viper to a z06, theres a thing called money in this world, and if u dont have enough of it u cant get a viper, but u can get z06 if ur 15k poorer. so if ur in a position to buy a viper, its given ur in a position with a extra 15k handy . sorry i didnt mention ur lil mp3...(see if u noticed, i was talking about the viper and zo6)...oh yea and theres one more problem with ur statement, didnt i mention using the money instead for a down payment on a house or maybe getting a $5k 5.0 fox body mustang and modifying it with 12 times the amount of the car cost?...exactly....thnx for readin

I read that maybe you didn't understand the thread we are talking about these 3 cars stock not modified like you mentioned. And if you want to save the money and mod up a car buy the mp3 instead of the vette mod it to DESROY the vette and then with all you cash you have left put a down payment on a house or buy your mustang you want.

sorry but im allowed my 2 cents man, i mean unless u all are super rich, then money is an issue and cars=money. simple fact of life. im not an idiot to not notice the obvious fact that stock for stock, the viper performance wise is the best car u can get, but cmon after everyone else says that, im thinking i will say something realistic...u knoe, wake up from supercar choosing fantasy land and talk about something we all want, money man....oh yea and about "old man celica" its one of the nicknames of my car besides "rusty", ok? and dont call me nigga. and trust me, i hate the celica, but i love the 450 dollar price tag and 600 hundred dollar a year insurance for it...
