Do these quotes sound like he's talking about a video game to you?
"And just be glad you live far enough away that you never have to see my 03 cobra coming up behind you. It will make your bald head spin when I whip past you. Wouldn't be the first time I embarrassed a baldie."
"After reading the new motortrend I don't think the 05 GTO stock will be much of a match for the 03-04 cobra, but we will have to see when it gets in the hands of a good driver. The drivers for most car mags (with the exception of GM Hightech Performace and MM&FF) usually don't run the best times. Again, I am talking about a straight line 1/4 mile run."
"#1 This thread is (loosly) about gt4. Where modding is the essence of the game."
"#2 if you think 18K (the difference of the cars in the priced as tested in the article) for .1 in the 1/4 mile, .03 in lateral G's and 6 feet in the 60-0 braking test, and 2 mph in the slalom is a better value, then yes the vette is a better value, but I don't think it is. The mustang is based on 70's technology. "
"I never said it was. I said it could crush it in a staright line for a lot less money (after very inexpensive mods). It's other people that brought up value and cornering."
I wasn't going to reply but....
I agreed with you that I thought he was talking about the real world too. He was going on and on about value. After I told him that some people don't want to modify their cars, he said

So then I went the video game route.
Does it really matter. Argue this point with him, not me. He seems to be the one going back and forth and using the real world when it suits him and using the video game when the real world doesnt give him the answers he wants.
Anyway, my suggestion is just a fun competition, not meant to prove what car is faster in the real world. Relax. You seem to be having too much fun arguing with everyone in this forum today. (I have been reading your pleasant comments in the component switch thread too)
We are way off topic. This is supposed to be about the car list.
Back on topic. Maybe when the game comes out I'll post up again and we can an AVS competition to see who can spend the least amount of money to get the fastest 1/4 mile time. (Maybe we can have an unmodified and modified class or something.) If there is any interest I can track it.
