  my '02 Z28 got beat by a Mitsu Evo. When I was lined up at the line I thought it was a joke. He beat me off the line (AWD) helped him, and with the turbo pulled a low 13 second pass. My best that day was a 15.015 (bear in mind that is at 5000 ft. elevation and self-aspirated vehicles (like the Z28) really take a hit at elevation. I could probably pull a low 13 second pass myself at, or near,  sea-level. It was embarrasing getting beat by a Mitsu, you know, and I'm driving a Chevrolet Z28.  <_<

And this unfortunate reality pans out with the spirit of the new naming conventions for the forum's membership. Everyone knows that a good-running four banger can toast alot of V-8s. And it's quite symbolic, because alot of the V-8s on the forum are of the low-compression ilk ... emissions-control-plagued lumps with retarded timing, running on five cylinders with alot of blow-by.
