Killed an RX-8

I was turning off of the highway to my house when a RX-8 flew buy. I was doing nothing anyway so I went after him and we ended up racing twice.
The first time I pulled on him so bad I stopped after just hitting 3rd gear and
asked him if he had left his traction control on. He said he turned it off and we went at it again. I think this one might have been even worse. I'm not sure how many lengths to say there was. A bunch. Maybe the guy couldn't drive. But it was fun. He said he should have gotten a GTO. I'm stock.

I don't think an RX-8 even counts as a "kill", that's like racing my Topaz. But I am probably like you, I will race just about anything, faster or slower--doesn't matter, I am old enough now that I can even take a spanking and still smile.

Nice "cough" Kill

Nice. Was the RX-8 stock or modded? I would have to say that an RX-8 is a legitimate kill. It's got approx. 240 HP, which is only 20 HP less than a Mustang GT. Anyway.... It's always good to hear your providing a healthy diet for your Goat.

RX-8 = 0-60 in 5.9s
1/4 mile in 14.5s

I'd say it's a decent kill.

Spoken by someone who has obviously never driven an RX8. Nice cars, but you need to keep the revs up as they are bit lacking in the torque department. Rotaries are easily kept highly wound, however. Also, their handling is awesome indeed.

In a canyon burning scenario in which the road gets twisty, that RX8 would easily hand our Goats their respective furry asses (provided said Holden is still equipped with the vigin factory suspension and brakes).

Fact.
