Balt SS Vs. RX8

raced my friends 2005 RX8, all it had was a 3ich exhaust. I have a 07 balt SS 2.4 with just a K&N intake. We went 5 times just screwing around in our town, I clearly beat him 3/5 times, the other two were real close. Was it my car that won or my friends shity driving that made him lose, lol, he aint that bad but j/w. Any one have any ideas, i'd hate to race another RX8 only to get waxed

I would not have expected a Cobalt to beat a RX-8, even if it is an SS. I really don't have the experience to tell you weather or not it is realistic, I'm just a fan of the RX-8/Mazda rotary engine yet I currently own a Cobalt. How bad did you beat him by? Both manual trannies?

no my is an auto , his is an auto but he has the thumb shifting, speeds really didnt get to fast, no faster then 50mph, his bumper was about even with my rear tire, i woulda thought he'd kill me so thats why I'm askin, it was weird, he's at miltary training now so I can't race him again to find out ugh, but there is a cocky black RX8 in town and I wanna know if i stand a chance cuz my friend said he beat it

this is normal. those cars just arent that fast. I kicked some girls ass at the track in mine. I believe she has an auto tho, but still.

bolt on rx8s are running around my time stock so good kill!
