I don't see any 3's going that fast, although the 0-60 really is a let down. Their lack of torque is killing them in their class.

BTW, I love your avatar

Re: HOLY NUT BALLZ!!!

Yeah, but you guys are talking about cars with turbos in them ... an RX-8 comes off the factory floor with 230 + horses. I've seen vids of Turbo RX-8's dynoing at 272 hp and 212 torque. I'm not sure what that equates to in top end speed, but I'm sure is significant.

Re: HOLY NUT BALLZ!!!

i've raced the fastest turbo rx8 on the forums. its brices "blue monster". his car is sweet. this was months ago when i had a poor tune and turbo issues and i was about 1/2 a car on him. now with about 90whp more than i had that day it be fun and he has spent just as much as i have PLUS more for the car to begin with

dont get me wrong. i love the rx8. its fun to drive but they make crap for torque. i just prefer my 3 more. im not bashing on you or anyone
