It's a stupid comparison in my mind anyway and alwasy will be. Cars get traction by tyres. Planes get "traction" by exhaust speed. Of course a car will beat a plane away from scratch, that's physics, and of course a plane will beat a car on top sped for the same reasons - physics. EVERYTHING else in the comparison is only car manufacturers getting publicity.

They'd be as well saying there car can be painted quicker than a plane
Worryingly , SOME fanboys would still think that important if it let them notch up another for their favourite
So true.

Interesting. Matra, once again, you have my admiration (but not for knowing an insane fact this time)

LOL...I never realized Rock was a mod either. Gogo paying attention me!

Sorry 'bout the bandwidth, didn't even think about it. I'll make a point of not quoting pictures again.

I think not. I think a F1 raced a F18 in Australia and this cr@p pops up nearly every year. Initially a jet will take more time to accelerate than almost any high powered car. It obviously all comes down to the length of the race. but these races are not about winners anyway.

you will be surprised to know that in one
replies-belive it or not, they showed a race between
doge viper and f16 fighter plane. The race was like
this, they both start from zero and since the plane is
on groud before take off, they fixed a distance that
was to be covered. Now the thing is people think that
the best figher plane can win this race without any
prob. and yes it won, but only in photo finish, plane
nose was fraction ahead of car at the line.

I read about in car and driver
they raced them because the F16 was special version with extra weapons known as the Viper
the dodge viper lost badly

OH yeah, it lost badly.
I know you guys don't like reading a whole thread, but for god's sake, at least read the 1st page.

I brought this up before a long time ago, and everyone called "bullsh*t" on me.

How about a race between any car and a F-14 launched off a catapult, like on an aircraft carrier.(But not actually on the carrier.)
