A lot of factors when at the track. Where you race makes a difference. Example, here where I live it'* only a bit over 600 feet above sea level. Racing in Denver is going to be way different. Set up and prep time, tires, fuel, tune, etc. All add up. A 12 second car is a fast car. Pushing a boat that fast is a lot of work.

Guess we need to get Top Gear on it. LOL. I was surprised to see so many of them listed and people dropping superchargers on them. Most be some Marauder love out there.

Any car that has easy modding and can be made fast will have a following. Who would have thunk a 3800 pound grandpa car would have such a following.
