so there's this guy at my work who recently bought a Challenger... V6... auto... lol. it's no Camaro, but hey, at least he bought American. he's seen the Bee before and when i told him it was an SS he knew better than to race me.
so, i got this idea in my head last night. that V6 Chally is rated at 250 HP/250 TQ... my LaCrosse is rated at 255 HP/217 TQ. i got a 2.77 gear ratio (which is crappy for racing, but oh well). dunno what the V6 Chally has. according to Dodge.com, his curb weight is 3719 and mine is 3929 according to Buick.
i would hope he would beat me, but i think it would be a fun race.
so this morning, i come in to work and tell him i have a good race for him. i didn't want to step on his ego too much cuz i really wanna race him (if i beat him in my Buick... that would be hilarious!). so i tried to say as nicely as possible that i wanna race him in my Buick since that would be a more fair race than the Camaro. he got a little insulted and said his Chally is "more of a cruiser"
whatever. so i said, "well, you'll prolly beat me, but i just like to race. so lemme know if you're up to it" and that seemed to soften him up a bit to the idea.
so ladies and gents... i'm gonna work on this guy for a bit and see if i can score a race. i would hope he would beat me, but you never know.
might get a Chally kill in the Buick. that would be too funny.
