    1998 TA Ws6 vs Genesis v8

    Today on my way to work I was waiting at a light and this Genesis sedan pulls up. It's the v8 version. They revved at me and I revved back. The light turns green and I punch it, I am about. 3 to 4 car lenghts ahead of them at 80mph until I hit 100 and then I pulled away more. I really thought I would lose, does this seem odd to anyone how I took the Genesis so easily? The only mods I have are full exhaust and a lid.

    If you raced a 2012 model which i dont know if there out yet but it will have 429hp i think. Chances are you raced the 385hp. Even though its alot of power, its got alot of weight to move(sedan). Either way good kill OP.

    Oh yeah that's right I was thinking of the 2012 model. I was seriously surprised how easily I pulled on it.

    It only has 370-380hp, and you are probably around 360-380hp crank but the sedan weighs 500-600lbs more than your car.

    Well I had thought it had 425 HP when I raced it but I have pulled on a charger srt8 before but they are really heavy.

    the four doors have a V8 option, if I had all the money in the world I would buy a coupe and put the V8 in it, just cause.

    ...I would have sex with two girls at the same time. I'm pretty sure if I had all the money in the world I could arrange that.

    The 2.0t is essentially the same engine as the EVO X if I'm not mistaken. Or atleast alot of the EVO parts fit on it. Alot of potential with that one :secret:
