    it's real.


    it was about a year ago that they pitted the new Viper prototype (srt10) against an F16 Viper, the SRT10 beat out the jet in the 0-60, 1/8th, and 1/4 mile but the jet took it in the end in the 1/2 mile. :worthy:

    i used to have the vid of a jet racing a F-1. it was gay, i mean u gotta remember those jets are heavy and take a whileto get up to speed, but needless to say the f-1 owned the fighter jet...

    This has been done many times. Here is a vid of a CART racing an f18.

    http://www.bitoffun.com/Vids/F14_vs_F1car.mpg

    It says f1 but how ever made the link does not know the diffrence.


    They did a smilar test with the lafaritdafdasdfxzc? (sp) twin turbo (or was it sc?) corvette vs a boing jet. Same results, vette won (8.9 second quarter mile) then after that, by by vette.

    Funny thought...these comparisons....

    After the cars max out at 150-240 MPH's...the jets remain to keep going until they hit Mach 3 +........and sometimes...they never max out......

    Unless they hit the V-max switch :ph34r:

    coming from someone whos brother flys F15s...

    he said his fully stock Stealth R/T "aka 3000GT VR4" felt about the same as a jet only differance is the jet keeps going and going and going where the car after 80mph or so stops making that hold you in the seat feeling the jet just keeps it up

    I still can't figure out why so many tv shows and newspapers put wow race car VS jet!!! viper VS jet!!!! F1 VS jet!!!! who gives a fuck its been done before I think they even had a jet powered 18wheeler VS jet.....

    I think they should put a car on a aircraft carrier and see if it can keep up with an F14 =)
