I wonder why the poopras aren't more competitive? It was a big weekend for drag radial cars....

How come Chargers are not more competitive in autocrosses races? A 3600-3800 lb Supra with IRS suspension is never going to be able to compete with a 2800-3000 lb car with a solid rear on paper or in real life. But I will say that the only competition for a manually shifted 6-speed Supra is a Viper. I know there could be some fast 6-speed F-bodys and Mustangs, but they almost never stay loyal to the 6-speed around those ETs.

I like all different kinds of automobiles but my favorite is manually shifted cars at the drag strip, real manuals that use the clutch every gear. I like to see a car and driver work to get down the track, not just sit there and press the gas.
