Before I start my story, i want to add that I don't bull**** to look cool on a message board and I do not exaggerate anything.
So Im on a red light and a black tinted out GTO is next to me. In my experience every time I am next to a GTO they want to play, so I turn off my ESP and kick it in 1st just in case he wants to go. Light turns green, we both slowly get off the line and I am a car length behind him going 25-30, and I punch it and by the time me and him are even he punches it too and I gained a good half a car maybe a little more and I could hear him spinning from 1st to second and by the time I hit 70 75 he just gave up and he immediately turned into some parking lot hahahahha. But yea I got a good half a car on him and it stayed like that until about 75. And oh yeah it was very cold outside :cool:
I know if we kept going he would of definitely gotten me.

My next race happened a few weeks ago and I didnt post it because I wasnt very proud of the outcome but here goes.

I see a mustang mach 1 looked like a 03 or something. Now I did my research and Mach1s and R/Ts are pretty close performance wise, I think. Well anyway 2nd gear roll, he murdered me so bad it reminded me of the time I raced a crotch rocket. I mean he killed me. He definitely did something to that car and I do not know what. Anyone here have any idea, I mean this car looked like a 12 sec car. We raced again this time a 1st gear roll and same outcome
Its okay though I rather beat a GTO than beat a mustang mach 1.

GTOS are cheap ugly cars with a good motor and a ****ty transmission.

u had my respect for the kill until you said GTOs are cheap and ugly and that we have ....ty transmission. Sir you are indeed cluless about GM transmission cuz they are one of the best in the market. Those transmissions are within the ones with less hp lost thru the tranny. Now that was a very close race what 3-4 seconds anything is possible so i guess you did good. MACH 1 are fast they are low 13s - mid 13s with a few upgrades and they run 12s so no shame on that. Next time you race a GTO do it like a man drop your window and nod the OP so he knows is on.

Or, there is a 'short', between the seat and the transmission. :razz:

Do what again ????:wink:

They are Ugly......fact is, I'm not sure that even a "mother" could love that face.:whistle: Bloody typical GM.... good motors, tough drive trains, but always seem to miss the "look" (though the new Camaro has my attention...) kinda like a Honda "Element" just not as ugly :clap:

Now don't go getting Evil's "Goat".
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The GTO's beauty is in its performance.
He's happy with it and we're happy with the "better" looking car...:laugh:
I still want to get a good run with his GTO......

And what do chargers have??

As far as GTOs are concerned, I sold my 2004 6 sp manual LS1 for a Charger Daytona because of the four doors. From experience, I can say my Daytona would lose in any race from 0 to maximum MPH against the GTO. Same horsepower, about six hundred lbs less weight, and a 3.46 rear axle. Top speed also not limited electronically.
