Isn't Marauder rear-wheel drive? If so, that'* a minus.

I'm sad to report that the GXP MIGHT have a tough time. I've driven one, and I was somewhat disappointed in performance, except on the high end. Greenzilla would take one effortlessly off the line, soundly an the 1/8, and I don't think the GXP would have me at the 1/4.

Maybe the 1/2 mile, certainly the 1-mile.

But by the 1/4 mile benchmark, and stoplight racing, the GXP doesn't do well.

The Marauder is slow. 7.6 sec from 0-60mph. 15.8 @88mph in the quarter. Torqueless wonders. They are govorned at 120mph too.

I think the GXP would keep up with it. The Maurader'* have RWD and LAZY tranny'*. It would be a good match up to say the least....

Seeing how the Maruader is rear drive with the dohc I still think the GXP would give it an run for its money because the Maruader is much heavier and the GXP is an Northstar engine.

But to get a lil off the subjust that new GXP GP would kill both of them lol!
