Recent encounters in a video game.

Challenger Hellcat from a dig. Easy win for me. Put several car lengths between us before next light.
Same results at 2nd light. 3rd light Hellcat driver "ok you got me"
The irony of all this is that he pulled into a BMW dealer after we left the 3rd light.

Raptor- didn't sound stock but IDK.
Digg, roll didn't matter easy for me to put bus lengths between us.

Ford Explorer ST, surprised how quick this was. Had to be tuned.
From a dig it was close until I hit 2nd and started to pull away.
Roll easy to pull away.

When you nail the launch control this things really hooks and takes off.

Not really racing anybody but more people been revving and driving stupid around me lately. Every M340 I see out here does a fly by

Quick pull with a M2 comp and M550. The 550 sounds great.

+1 I thought it was bad with the M240i. The M3 attracts tryhards like a double XP weekend on COD. I swear people going out of their way to do fly by's. You can tell they're staring because they start drifting into your lane as they're passing.

This weekend: A very angry Ford Escape...no idea what model/engine. He chose the other lane at 4 different stop lights and gunned the thing to try to get in front. I did not race, but I did escape with ease and eventually he just settled into the lane behind me before his turn-off. I wasn't really paying attention to him until stoplight 3 but he looked utterly pissed. No idea what was going on with the dude.

It was more of a 1/64 mile. I can't run further than that anymore.

I considered a G80 M3 but changed my mind due to all the stories in this thread as a proof point. Can't be having all the wannabe fighter pilots buzzing me all the time when I have kids in the car.

Man, this car seems unbeatable. Lol. I think only 1 guy had a loss so far🤣😳. People should also mention their losses. So many fast cars out there. I saw mention of a tinted GTI. There are GTI's out there that can beat a lot of cars. Just want peeps to keep it real. It could be location. Tons of fast cars in the Northeast for sure. My last race in the F-82 was a new Supra. I got him but it was neck and neck. I did not think he would be so close. But nothing surprises me anymore

Well, I "lost" to yet another nutcase in an Altima yesterday in the rain surrounded by heavy traffic while I was just enjoying my comfy seats and music...and I still don't know what he got out tailgating and weaving through traffic, and only avoiding an accident because the ancient pickup he didn't notice weaved off the road to avoid getting hit.

But the look he gave me at the next light made it clear that he kicked my Frog's ass. Oh well.

Who the fuck lets forum dialogue (unverified) decide their choices....

In my dreams last night...

Audi RS6 took off in front of me on an on ramp, so I followed, he had a good head start on me, but I was easily keeping up with it and gaining on it. Driver changed lanes and got stuck so I zoomed by...driver looked very frustrated, lol.

Guilia QF and I are at a stop light checking each other out, he is in front of me, we start on a slow roll, and then all of a sudden he takes off, and I follow, again, easily keeping up and gaining. We stop at the next light and he smiles and gives me the thumbs up.

Old M3 E46 with something to prove cuts me off and whizzes around me out of nowhere, inches from my front bumper. I had my wife in the car with no intent to race. It is quite annoying when people do things like that to "get your attention". I've heard on this forum that new G80 owners don't give enough respect to older M3s, but it's a two way street. Seems like they are mostly young hooligans with more bravery than brains.

Porsche Cayman S - a young kid took off at a stop light, I was behind, I easily caught up and he changed lanes, and as I sped by him, he was smiling and gave me a thumbs up.

This car is a beast. My favorite part is that I can instantly change it into a pussy cat by hitting one of the M buttons. Love it. Best car I've ever owned.

Haha I couldn't agree more. I can't wait to own this car. This car is a monster from a dig, but by no means is it beating a stock hellcat from a roll. From a dig, I totally get it. From a roll stock hellcats pull low 8s from 60-130, last time I check no stock g8x is coming close to that.

I expect to lose a lot of races until this car is modded. The potential tuning for this platform is exciting though.

Dig racing is so old school🤣 Roll racing is where it's at! So much easier on the car also. Once you start getting into bigger power, expensive shit starts to break launching these newer cars. Hopefully the tuning for the X-drive cars will have rolling launch at some point. Then the real fun begins. Your turbos will hate it, but you will love it😘

A reverse post...I have a 2020 M550ix and did a 20 roll with a RWD M4...Nothing in it up to 70mph. Similar weight and WHP so not surprising.

Stock 60-130 pulls is not going to change much. It's been mid 9s to high 9s. Hellcats are low 8s. There's no denying which car pulls harder. There's even videos of it, it needs jb4 just to hang with a stock hellcat. Not being bias. Just facts.

Haha are you butt hurt a stock hellcat is faster than a stock G8x???

I saw a video from them where a g80 with jb4 was hanging dead even with a hellcat. So I'm not sure about this one. I dont want to make excuses for the guy…any hellcat owner should know never to race from a 50. It's a terrible spot for it be in between 2nd and 3rd.

But Facts - stock hellcat runs 60-130 low 8s. G80s run mids 9s. I don't know what to tell you. Mods it's a crap shoot. I hope this car is faster with bolt one compared to my bolt on e85 hellcat. because I trade the hellcat in for it
