Re: Which would win?

There's never a definite answer to questions like this unless you are comparing stock vs stock. Get em on the track and find out. So many things play a role other than MODS. I've driven friends' cars against the same people they lost to and beat them.

That's where you get bragging rights from. I've been a member for 2 days and seen a few of these threads asking the same question. I understand you want to "pick your opponent" wisely but asking wont give you nothing but speculation. Open track or closed course, set the standards and rules, gain the bragging rights or bow down....simple as that!

GT hands down. My brother had a stock rx8 and I spanked em by 3 lengths through 3rd gear with just an exhaust.

The rx8 is a gutless wonder. Shouldn't be a problem.

The rx-8 has about 230hp and about 160lbs of torque!.. A stock GT should be able to pull on this easily!.. A slightly modded one even more so!...

It still falls back on the experience of the driver as well..

If we're talking strictly straight line, out of the hole a stock 99-04 GT-even with an ok driver-shouldn't have a problem, but the RX-8 has a redline of 9k rpm! On the right stretch of road a GT (stock cams; stock 3:27 gears) starts to run out of steam at about 5200rpm or so. The RX-8 would pull ahead at that point, but it needs road. On a course, the GT would need to have a good lead before diving into the corners--the RX-8 is lighter and has a more sophisticated chassis.

To summarize, stock vs stock, 1/4 mile, GT all the way. Long stretch of road, there's a good chance the RX-8 would overtake a GT since it makes most of its power on it's top end (similar to an S2000 or an NSX). On a road course with a lot of twists or a mountain road, RX-8 because of its better chassis dynamics.

I'm a Mustang guy through and through but the facts are the facts. The truth sucks. On the bright side, with little cash outlay, a GT can be setup to overtake Vettes--forget about RX-8's!!!!

Re: Which would win?

I ran a '05 RX8 with exhaust, intake, and a chip. I only had o/r x-pipe and flowmaster mufflers. Took him by probably 4 car lengths before we even got to 70mph from a dig. Wasn't even a race, honestly...

Edit: Since then I've upgraded my GT even more with things like new 70mm tb and plenum, 4.10 gears, etc... Ran him again and was literally 5-8 cars ahead by third gear, and putting more road between us before letting off @ 70mph.

Like I said!.. The rx-8 has very little torque!.. And torque is what really helps win a race!..

Torque is good for the hole shot in a short race (1/4 mile) and pulling out of the turns on a circuit. After that, you need power--specifically in the upper rpm range.
