i raced my friends friends dad gtp. 260hp. yeah i know its heavier, but 55 more horsepower! i killed him by about 2-3 cars.
Silv04RL said:and another thing to remember they dont have a 55 hp advantage, they have a 15-20hp advantage. we put our rating to the wheels. the GTP weighs about 3500-3600 pounds. what gets those things moving is the all the torque they have. theyre rated at 280 but they make around 300. previous generation had 240hp and 280tq. now with a better blower design they make 260hp and 280tq . 20 more hp and the torque just happens to stay at 280? not happenin
it really does suck launching in the wintrer with z rated tiresKyFritz said:it was me he raced in the GTP!! lol it was my dads. we couldnt launch because of garsnows tires, the z rated tires are awful in this weather. i really couldnt believe that he had beat me. those redlines are some beasts.

Roln19s said:Adam needs to wait till it is warm out, and then race someone. You can't get in a good race when it is -2degrees out side. It is not good for you or the other guy. One thing I wondered is, how to get rid of the wheel hop in the RL's? I test drove a Red 05, and it WAS SOOO MUCH faster than my cav, but hard to launch. Prolly didn't help it was raining, huh?
