So got a question, who should we stay away from in some races? I knew what I could handle before but what about when we do mods like a 426 stroker with hads and cam. Would I run from the new x5?

Since I haven't had her to the track yet, I'm not sure.

So what are some of the things we should stay clear of?

Are you strictly asking in terms of 1/4miles?

Well there's a vid on YouTube of a 426 Jeep tuned by AJ running away from an LP560-4 from a roll. Same jeep also running door to door with a Ron Fellows C6Z that I think may have had a mod or two.

Then again there's that guy from Michigan with just a cam, bolt-ons, and tune that seems to take down anything that stacks up against him; and gets $hit for posting the video evidence.

Moral: You never know what you're gonna be able to take down. That's why its called street racing, its totally unpredictable.

Why would you run from the stock new X5? There are plenty of cars that are faster, it depends on how deep your vs. their pockets are...Beware of everyone...You will never be the fastest..There are cars that look stock but when you run them...They will get the last laugh...Just have fun because there will always be someone faster!

Oh I know there is ALWAYS someone faster. To be honest I don't care if I win or lose, I was just wondering with mods what do they compare with. I was more into fair set ups at the track

I raced and beat an X5M this fall at etown... I think he ran like a 12.60 @ 110. Pretty sure it was stock because it didnt have an plates on it yet, but who knows

^^ What he said. I am on Corvette forums as well and you wouldn't believe the C5's that appearance wise they are completely stock and look so un-touched until you look under their hood and you wouldn't believe what they are running/pushing.

These days man there are dodge neon srt4's killing corvettes.... The aftermarket auto industry has evolved soo much recently that its not just the guys with the deep pockets that can afford to mod their expensive cars. So I mean it can be anyone who can kick your butt. Just pray that you dont run into them too often. lol

Werd....with a 426 and good tires, not much is gonna stand a chance on the street. I would get it refined and dialed in perfect if you bought the rig the way it sits. Might as well make the most of what you have under the hood!

I win often... But I have lost to a M6 on the highway. Of course I am in a Jeep going 80mph on the highway when we start racing... They have more top end and better aerodynamics.
It was modded like crazy also... Once im at 120mph its like im slowing down and he is speeding up.
Once we get up near 100mph and our Jeeps start slowing down and small sports cars seem to go faster.

Now race anything from a dig and you got a great chance! From 0-100mph you should be able to hold your own against some crazy fast cars. But this is less than a 1/4 mile of a race.

Here's who you should stay away from ;) BBill , BJB , Keoni , Harrison and all the stage 6 turbo Beast , Jim's TT Creations TT Monster , & last but not least ME :eek: , and the list goes on . Now for those X5 /X6M they are insignificant challenges for your 426 IMO .

The 426 should get you in the mid 11's. Not many stock cars that can run that. But once they are modded anything is possible. My local track has a high 8 second civic that looks like a POS from the outside until you look under the hood.
