I followed your FXT build before I ever set foot in my STI. Loved that build

And hey, I owned an 04 that wasn't that big of a pile of garbage

Interested in why you like the mustang this much?

Back on topic, I have been in a buddies 300c SRT8. That thing was no slouch, solid car. It will honestly come down to driver, both are evenly matched cars.

Only kidding, I have a Mustang as well, but still miss my wrx lots.

With that said, I hope the 07 wrx wins.

Throw a banana peel out the window and he'll spin out. On a serious note, seems like a good race, post a video or time slips when it is all said and done, also post the pic of you with $200! Good Luck.

What nuts? He drives an srt8 300..

Seriously though. Take the bet and let him see some brake lights. Those cars are pigs off the line.

I owned an 11 5.0, it was useless other than dyno bragging. Too much torque to put the power down, only fun on the highway.

<yawn>

I never took that thing out, was my wifes car, and we were glad to be rid of it shortly thereafter.

I think your car can beat him in his car. Can you do everything right? Have you ever been to a drag strip? I say bet a bill, why not? As long as you have enough in the bank for your bills, I don't see anything wrong with putting a bet on it to make it fun.

I've only raced one 300C at the drag strip and he destroyed me after the 1/8. It was modded and running drag radials. I'll see if I can find the slip tomorrow.

well I've beaten a charger srt8 by doing the perfect launch at about 7k rpms and I did every shift perfectly, I'm hoping I can do the same with the 300 hopefully without destroying my transmission haha

for what it's worth...I could beat my buddies wrx with my old xjr which was rated at 390 hp 400 tq. So the srt8 is more powerful, and probably about the same weight. Like everyone else is saying, it'll come down to the launch and driver. My xjr was hit or miss on a launch, no lsd meant it would break a tire loose very easily. 13.5 was my best in the 1/4 in it.

Drag racing is for pussies who can't negotiate a corner. Don't bet anything.

I watched NHRA drag racing ONCE. The speed and acceleration of those things... drivers have some sort of talent to handle it,

0-300+ MPH between 5-9 seconds?! It's crazy!

Actually, they go 0-300mph in less than 4 seconds.

Here is one of Tony Schumacher Runs 3.853 @ 318.69mph. This is 1000ft, they haven't run the 1/4 in years.

This is what I was thinking (but without the haha). $100 is trivial compared to what you'll lose if you blow up your tranny.
