Charger vs. Taurus SHO vs. G8

Anybody have any experiences taking on the new Ford Taurus SHO or the Pontiac G8?

Of course we're talking legal racing, not street racing because no one here would do that.

Who won?

2010 Charger R/T Stone White : Wavetrac LSD, K&N drop-in filter, DiabloSport Predator, Hemi valve-caps, Brylcreem mod, 255's all around, no ESP mod via glovebox

The SHO is no problem unless you are in snow or real high altitude where its AWD and Turbo would help it out. It probably is a little faster than the R/T

The G8 GXP is pretty much a dead heat with the SRT8 but has a little more precise handling and an optional 6 speed.

2006 SRT8 228,000 miles+ (ordered with F1s and options)

The SHO will lose quickly after launch.

The G8 is in between the RT and SRT8

None of the Sho's I raced gave me a problem.

I've raced one G8, and had fun with the other driver. We went back and forth down 95. Fast car, but I finished him off in the end.
