    I am having issues with copy paste an old post. Started a thread on it.

    It was the one where a Marauder owner beats Ferrari's and Lamborghini's so bad they tried to ban him from the event.

    Adam I did this with the old Trilogy grotesquely overdriven and the six speed. The power wasnít too much as it was producing more heat than effective boost but if I recall it was 461 hp back then and I felt it was on the borderline of wasted power and had to think doubly hard on not only braking and turn execution but now also power delivery and gearing. All this with the wife and three kids literally rolling around the back seat smashing heads together and against windows all the while laughing their asses off..

    Now take a look at Sergeant Macís Shelby GT. That thing had every possible suspension upgrade, some not even in production yet, thrown at it from different vendors as a touring show and tell car. We swapped keys one day and while hot lapping a parking lot with islands/post lights/trees he threatened to take his afternoon nap if I didnít stop *****footing his car! At that point I fed it some onions and all I can say is that little pony only responded, was a hell of a cornering beast, and with only something like low 300 horses would eat my car alive on any track any day. Not only that but you could almost steer with your eyes and give it no thought and you would already be approaching the next obstacle. Soooo much less thought and effort.

    Use the lower power to your advantage and kill them in the corners and the Marauders awesome high rpm powerband in the straights.

    Hmm, well...I'd still like to gearjam a boosted Marauder around a road course...just ONCE, to see how the other half lives. I'd probably be laughing and having a great time too, if I was a passenger!

    Speaking of HP, I thought Dad would want more HP in his 2003 GT, as he complained about the straightaway gaps the fancy GT350s and C7 Vettes were putting on us both. By the time we got back to his house to unload cars, he was singing a different tune - he thinks a better seat would have helped him stay planted in the car. I'll say this, the Marauder seat is not the best thing in the world, but it's far and away better than the stock seats in a 2003 GT!!!

    On the flip side, I really wish they made some affordable racing buckets for fat guys like me.

    Be hard to do since you drive the car to the track, but a set of racing slicks could cut your times by quite a bit. Trick is to know with some degree of confidence where the breaking points of under/oversteering are and to be able to ride that razors edge. Lots and lots of seat time. Sounds like you and your dad had a good time.
