You ONLY make upwards of 400whp


In all seriousness though, my car gets pretty slow after about 100-120. Nearly every car I've beat would be from 20-100 or so. After that they start gaining on me which is weird, cause my topend is pretty solid. Definitely doesn't lose power towards redline, but actually keeps building it all the way to the limiter.

Aero?

Jay's is faster than mine and a stock c6z and I run neck and neck up to 130mph or so. Then i become afraid.

For this Miata vs Mustang, it would be fun to see something a little slower then. Let's say 30-110 and let the cars do the talking. Sometimes it's fun to see which car is actually quicker without allowing the driver to have much say in the outcome.

Your Miata is special and it doesn't count.

What did you lose to though?

All kinds of cars, there's always something faster or someone that's a better driver. My favorite loss was to a red C5 Corvette that took off and I never saw him again, I thought my turbo fell off or something.

I recently lost a roll-race to an r34GTR that rolled all 4-tires at 110mph (5th gear shift for me). He gave me a thumb-up though.

I know the quality sucks on this video, but this is my old set up vs a LS2 350Z, i was toast after 110mph or so. My car had somewhere in the 225 to 240whp range at the time, 100% stock internals. The 350z later went on to run high 11's on motor and high 10's on spray..Name:  DSCN0015.jpg

HAHA I knew that would get a rise out of you

Actually I'm turning it up to 14psi tomorrow and would be really curious how I'd do against a 5-0 swapped miata.

You would lose, unless you are pusing 330 to the wheels.

If diz dood really puttin down what he says den I'l give dat cat mad steet cred know what im sayin. I aint tryin to hype things up but my boy's exhaust gave him 10 wanted level points alone ! So after that im not sure diz miata is all that know what im sayin. If it keeps up, then mad props and some street cred. Wanted level points not that much cuz it aint have swag or enough boost to do tha d**m thang.
