That's right, after almost 2 years, I finally got a kill in my "baby 8". Sitting at the lights, an RX8 pulls up on the right. For sure an exhaust but that's probably it. Lowered, candy striping on the side and hood. Driver wearing sunglasses that covered his entire face for crying out loud. His lane merges and he's revving up to overtake me, glances over to take in the beauty of the G8 and proceeds to put both hands at 10 and 2. He's sooooo ready. I chuckle a bit and realize the massive probability that he's gonna take me, but why not give it a shot. I've never street raced in my life, but something deep down was telling me, "just do it, just this once".

Well, the green hits and we both floor it. I'm still on winter tires and TC is on in sport mode. He pulls a little (those RX8s have useless low end, kind of like mine lol) but I'm right there with him. As soon as 2nd hits, he's starting to gain a little more, but I'm still right at his rear quarter panel. I figure it's over now but wait....what's that? A missed shift? Ohhhhh, so sorry little Mazda, toodles....gave a wave as I flew past him to the next lights.

Yes, I know an RX8 isn't a great kill like the 5.0s and Camaros of the world, but damn if it didn't put the biggest smile on my face. Driver mod FTW!!:driving:

When he said kill in a V6, I thought he had ran over a squirrel or a wounded baby bird... :shiner:.

Great kill! V6 or V8, gotta represent the G8, and doing it against an RX8 is sweet!

Hahaha same thing i thought

C’mon, guys, don’t be hatin’ on the V6 guys. We’re all G8s here, we’re family: give props where props are due, and any kill against a worthy competitor is deserving of said props. Sure, if a 1000 hp twin-turbo GXP beat a stock RX8, that might not be worth celebrating, but karlhungus is proud of his kill, as he should be.

It's all just friendly ribbing I'm sure. Heck, if you can't laugh at yourself, you're gonna have a hard life, but thanks for getting my back Turbo lol.
