Funny thing happen today

So i was at work and one of my junior sailors came up to me and said he wanted to race me on a track course.
Of course i smiled cause i know he has a stock RX8. The guy next to him said
" You do understand he has a 1LE right?"
He said " O i thought you had a V8. Nevermind"
Once i got up off the floor from laughter, i explained to him that the 1LE was a track ready V8.
He said he still thinks he would beat me due to the RX8 having a great 50/50 weight ratio.
I walked away laughing and told him to just tell me what day.

You can't blame him for believing in his own car.

I put an evo behind me on the road course that supposedly had similar power as my 1LE

there's always people like that... My buddy's brother keeps telling me he's got $250 that says his 2000 duramax will leave my 1LE in the dust... But I don't want to drag race a truck on the streets

A really good driver in either of those cars would be surprisingly quick.

I could swear the 1LE also has very close to 50/50 if I remember correctly. Sure feels like it does, and that's coming from a former EVO owner.

guys got jokes, we had a Turbo RX8, running Toyo R888's and Tein 3way coils on the track at Toronto Motorsports Park at one of the track days I went to, he was 6 seconds a lap slower than my 1LE, also lapped faster than an Audi R8 V8, AM Vantage V8 and a highly modded SN95 Stang.

All the import guys see if a heavy V8 muscle car and think no way it can corner.

The driver is a pretty big factor on a road course, but a 1.3L RX-8 would have a tough time keeping up with a stock SS IMO
