fibber!

i dont care what you've done to your truck, even a bone stock rx8 will smash a ranger.

He either wasn't WOT or has some serious issues under the hood, those are the only reasons you would have won.

In his defense. It could have been a 5 speed with a bad driver. Or the rx8 could have not down shifted. Stock 0-60 times on them are 6.3-6.5 seconds. So with a bad driver. The ranger could have pulled on him

The Rx8 could be running out of gas lol, or Rotary engine was on its last legs (prob about 40K miles before those POS engines are done)

no you are not. keep the racing to the track or dont post it here, i dont appreciate hearing about people that intentionally endanger them selfs and those around them on the road because of a dick measuring contest. thread closed.
