Okay, I have been reading through these kills and was wondering if we could put together a list of Cars that would serve as potential fodder for our Goats.

We can break it down into Domestic, Import, and Semi-Exotic (ie Porsche, Mercedes, BMW, etc...)

I am eager for such a list so I can get an idea of where the GTO stands, we should also add a price column of those cars.

What do you all think?

i dont think it would work very well.
there are too many factors to say that "this car is slower than that GTO".
also you have to deal with mods. for example, a stock a Mach 1 is an even match for the GTO, but a modded up Mach 1...........????
i mean, unless you just wanna go buy exactly what the magazines say, but even that may not be accurate to real world

i know what you are trying to get at, and its a good idea, but i dont think it will work.

Well lets stick with stock v. stock.

You can make anything win a race with $$$$$.

Plus it will serve as a "VALUE" comparison of the GTO v. other cars.

but even stock vs stock is hard to evaluate.
take this site for example. we have ETs ranging from nikivee's 13.3 to some people running a 14.5.
so what would the "stock" GTO time be? do we just take the time used in the magazines?

i believe raizinhell posted an article that was related to what you are getting at, but i cant remember the thread. can someone find it?

Well then we can just make a list of GTO's that have already killed certain cars?

He he, I hope I get the details of my GTO worked out soon. I live in Boeblingen GE within 10KM of where Mercedes, BMW, and Porsche are made.

I see spy cars all the time.

Well you could ballpark it...
Like:
Imports that you won't beat:
WRX STI, Lancer EVO, BMW M5, M3, well geez is that all? no but too tired...
Domestics that you won't beat:
Mustang Cobra
Mustang Mach 1 (shouldn't beat)
WS6
Camaro SS
Ford Lightning
Dodge SRT 10
Dodge SRT 6 (Close)
Dodge Charger
Corvette
Viper
Geez this would be too much work...
All opinions above are avg stock 1/4 times vs GTO AVERAGE stock 1/4 with the newest GEN of car.

I know there are more, but brain dead....Its sunday and I was out late last night...

If you want the truth... doesn't matter what you drive. It boils down to the driver being able to squeeze out top performance with his car. Anything less and you might as well sit in the spectator seats. :secret:

not if they are driven properly...

stock mach 1 vs stock GTO- should be a drivers race all the way


and i assume that when we speak of a WRX and a Lancer that we are referring to the STi & EVO (very important distinction).

stock STi or EVO vs stock GTO- from a stop, the GTO will lose. from a roll, we have more an advantage but its probably still a drivers race.

The "Dodge SRT 6" as you have it listed does not exist. The SRT 6 is a Chrysler - the Crossfire SRT-6. 330hp/310lb-ft. 5.1 to 60 and 13.5 to 1/4 @ 107 according to C&D. I would say driver's race on that one. Can I assume the SRT 10 you are referring to is the current iteration of the Viper, or do you mean the Ram SRT-10?

I beat a Lightning a few weeks ago but it had a dirtbike in its bed so I didn't bother posting about it.
