Having owned a 3.slow/5spd, and the following vehicles, I can say without a doubt that said ranger cannot beat a:

2.3/5spd Beretta
2.5T/5spd Shadow
2.5/auto 6000GLE
2002 5spd Nissan Sentra
1979 Civic 1200

My 3.0/5spd Ranger was the slowest vehicle I'd owned since my 66 Bug.

You can beat a 2.2 diesel ranger, those take about a minute and 20 seconds to hit 60.
Basically, if it takes more than 10 seconds to 60, you should be able to beat it.

1. its an srt8

2. I believe they are all auto.

3. They run mid to high 13's. No way you are keeping up with him. He was probably just messing with you

lol, sounds like one of my friends. He claimes his 03 gt beats 03-04 cobras all the time... yet he still wants a cobra. i dont get it.

When i asked him why he wanted a 'slower' car, his answer was 'it has more potential cuz its all forged'. I lol'd and walked away

In all honesty, he probably didn't even know you were racing, or had it at 1/8 throttle. Hell, my G8 barely edged one out, but he shut down before I could get into 6th gear.

Damn, Plymouth Breezes are slow. My mom used to have one and would literally have to floor it to get on the on ramp, and the whole car would shake. I think it was a lemon though.
