I can't take this! I was beaten by a RAV4 today and the chick was pulling away! And this was from a roll! Granted, she knew it was a race before I did, and she got a jump on me, but this sucks. All the great sound don't mean shit if there's nothing to back it up!
I have Hemifever tuning for 91 octane, Corsa Exhaust, CAI, and a ported TB.
I knew the '13 GC was not the fastest SUV in the garage, but this is embarrassing! Gotta find a way into an SRT8...I just gotta!

Re: Arrrgghhh! Beaten by a rav 4!

That sucks. Trade for a 2014 or and SRT, preferably a 2014 SRT. I never instigate a race, but if the roads are clear and it is safe, I won't back down if challenged. I have raced the Acura MDX, Mercedes ML, BMW X5 (multiple versions, including the M), a 2011-2013 JGC HEMI, and some others and win most of the time. I have yet to lose to any of the many ricers and pimpmobiles (huge SUVs with deep tinted windows and huge, hideous wheels) that think I have an SRT (I think most of the challengers think I have the SRT, at least before we race, to be fair). Even if somebody gets a jump on me, the HEMI has a ton of top end power and can usually catch up and overtake pretty quickly.

Also, what Bill said.

A diesel would have beaten her hands down without trying

Re: Arrrgghhh! Beaten by a rav 4!

NOOOOO!!!!! Should I just not race anyone? I would want to drive off a cliff.... Something must be off, maybe the tune? I'm not doing the corsa but everything else Ive got done or being done. I need to do a 0-60 run cause my butt dyno feels like I would smoke a rav4.

Couple of things... This wasn't a side by side drag race...this woman cut me off to get to the freeway ramp before me. The metering light lets two cars on at a time so when she took off I figured what the hell...Let me see how fast she is....but she was pulling away until we hit about 60mph or so...I think I would have smoked her from that point on due to the 5.7 nice fat powerband. But still! Even with all the mods Ive done I'm lucky to get down to 7 second 0-60 times. This just really showed me the limits of my Overland!

I was once in a race that really wasn't a race ... but a least I won.

Re: Arrrgghhh! Beaten by a rav 4!

I saw a review in which a V6 Rav4 scampered to 60 in 6.3 seconds. Power to weight is in play as well.

You're gonna have your work cut out for ya on that one.

Something like that, Bill! Not too many races are straight out drag races, especially in an SUV. They're usually push comes to shove races on freeway entrance ramps.

Buy an actual performance SUV if you want to go fast.

Yeah...Ya know, I've pretty much had fast cars all my life. I bought the 5.7 figuring it would at least be respectable. I read so many 0-60 times about this SUV, but it turned out that the slowest time was the true time...maybe around 8 second 0-60 times. I never even considered the SRT8 because I figured the 5.7 with would be enough. I WAS WRONG!
