It's not a stock vs stock so what's the point? You could take any of those cars and make them much faster than a shitbox Golf. I had a GTI and it was the biggest piece of crap I have ever owned. I fcking hated that car!

That car is about 800lds lighter then the stinger and 375hp at the wheels, not really fair. Not putting down the Golf, 11.2 is quick.

Give a the Stinger the same treatment the Golf got and it would have been a more even race. Impressive launch in the golf nonetheless.

Matter of fact just add a JB4 on the Stinger and that's it.
