Anyway, either of these would have a hard time passing emissions for road use. I mean, how could you keep that emissions measuring probe from being blown out the exhaust?

The F-22 is still a better fighter than the F-15 and the M3 is a better car than the vette.

Classified or not, its well known F-15 is the fastest American fighter topspeed wise, 2.5+ vs. 2.25 on the F-22. Even the F-14 was faster than the F-22 at 2.34. It seems like the focus isn't on the highspeed afterburner flight anymore (F-22 can supercruise over Mach 1 without afterburners), but more on manueverabilty, fuel economy etc....

I'd compare the m3 to the F-22 for sure....and Vette, more like a Mig-25 Foxbat (mach 3+)
