Sweet, F430's aren't that fast... 12.0 second 1/4 mile at 120mph

That dude in the Ferrari is going to go home and bang his supermodel wife in his mansion...and the gay in the miata is going to go home and cry because he's a loser and a virgin.

I could not disagree with you any more; any street car that approaches 120 MPH in the quarter IS fast.

Whatever, it's not impressive at all. Stock C6 Z06 on runflats: 10.981 @ 128.90. Now that's good.

128mph in the quarter is not just good...it is incredible for a street car. One of the fastest speeds you will find for a stock street vehicle. The Z06 is an incredible piece of machinery.

Back to the point of the discussion...calling a vehicle that finishes the quarter at speeds of 120mph not impressive is showing a lack of understanding (appreciation) of what it takes to go that fast in such a short amount of time.

Also keep in mind the fact that the ferrari is geared for top end, not for low end drag-racing launches.

A race from 80-150 would be an entirely different story.

if its not running sub-10second passes, why go to the dragstrip?

a guy in a 360 talked **** to me at MSR last time I was there. I can't wait to meet him again...with 3x more power.

Not exactly.... It's really just a matter of horsepower, weight, and traction (and a bit to do with CD).

Maybe a race between the Miata and F430 would be different for 80-150, but its a lot to do with aero then too. An F430 really isn't all it's hyped up to be. Now the F430 Scuderia, that is a HUGE improvement over the F430 and is a nice piece of machinery.

lol @ responses.
anything that traps 120 is fast, I dont give two ***** what you say.
the corvette that was recorded to run a 10.9 pass was ran on a private/rented track that was prepped through the ***, with ideal conditions. I'll bet money that at a regular track a vette wont run that time. maybe a low 11 if he is running flawless, but not a 10.

btw, the miata is LS1
and yes its gay, and yes I like it

I like how the Ferrari driver laughs at the miata, then flips him off in the other vide0. The miata walked him up to 100mph, and did it for much less than $250,000.00 (more like less than 1/10th).

and there's huge power gains for cheap on ls1 motors, or if you wanted to spend a little more from the beginning go ls2 ls3 ls6 ls7
