    Thumbs down It had to happen sooner or later.

    Well, I've had my car for about 2 months now. And so far I've raced a couple of cars and beaten them all. I have a 98 WS.6, yes all stock. Not for long though. But anyways back to the story...Going home from work. And I fall behind a CL63 AMG. Looked fast, and had at the least 12'' on the rear tires. I didnt know the specs of this car until I got home and did some research. But I was playing with him in traffic. Until I get to a light with him after a couple of miles. He's an older guy...money bags, of course, and well..since I haven't lost a race yet. I had that no-one-can-beat-me-I-have-A-TransAm feeling lol. But when the light turns green. He got me instantly by at least 6 car lengths. He was burning some rubber man. He kept on going...I gave up by 70-80ish....My mouth dropped. Well.....guess you cant win them all. Time for some mods......

    Yeah...the motor alone in one of those cost ~50k. They did a comparison between the pushrod LS3/LS7 and the the BMW and Mercedes DOHC V8's, and said that they made similar hp, but said the pushrod motor isn't going anywhere anytime soon because its so much cheaper/quicker to build than the DOHC.
