I see the camaro owners overlook the fact that in a foot race if you have two legs and beat a man with one leg...is it really winning? But great driving none the less...just recognize that the challenger ran as slow as it did because the turbo was fried in the practice run and he was basically running just to finish out the show in spite of damaging his car. Jeff knew he lost once the turbo blew but he ran his car in the actual race anyway and the show (and his opponent) failed to mention that little fact...now if he hadn't had that handicap who knows what would've happened

I compared the guy in the Mustang GT against Erik's Times... Mustang GT would lose too.. Camaro5 is undefeated in Forum Wars by the way...
GREAT JOB ERIK!!!

By the way reliability in any race can win or lose it. The Challenger was not reliable so it lost on that count alone. It's all part of the game...
Just like the Corvette Z06 had clutch problems.

I'll be honest - Erik won - not the camaro. You could have swapped the cars and drivers and Erik would have won in the last two. 1/4 would have been who ever got off the line first. Camaro still a better handling car for the reason Erik stated though.
