I don't street race because I have to try and explain to the other guy how I can't launch because of the 6" rear end. That makes me look like a wuss who just doesn't want to race or actually has a fake turbo. It's easier to just pretend I don't hear them revving.....stupid 6", who's great idea was that anyway?

Don't know, next trip to the dyno will be to install/tune 1.8 injectors, Begi AFPR, and 10-12 psi.

I made a pathetic 111whp on the stock Greddy kit. Then found out the plugs were extremely loose when I did the plugs/wires a few weeks later. I am sure that had alot to do with the low output.

I don't launch hard from a dig. I just roll out like any normal drive, then lay into it. Yeah, most RWD cars will kill me from a dig, but I don't really care, cause very few could hang with my car in the twisties.

I ran the Talon from a dig, slipped the clutch at 2k rpm and he couldn't catch me till 100mph. He had 100+ whp on me, and still wouldn't have caught me in the 1/4 mi.

Just on the road track, and only base model bosters...which is not that impressive. Now that I have decent tires, I should probably be fairly quicker than the 2 boxsters I've been playing with at Hallett out here in OK.

that's what i'm talkn' bout'! It's all about the cars we beat that we shouldn't be able to beat, and the priceless look on the owners face when he's served his own nuts on a cutting board.

I don't "street race", but I do drive fast whenever I can get away with it. I especially like getting on the freeway AT freeway speeds unlike a lot of Arizonans. For some reason people here drive especially slow getting on the freeway. So, I've caught several Corvettes, Mustang GTs, STIs, whatever by surprise by blowing by them getting on the freeway.

None of these were races by far as they weren't even trying. BUT, the look on their faces when I flew by them is just too funny. What's even more funny is them trying NOT to let me by or even flooring it after I went by them and me getting to speed and cruising at that speed. lol

I had a lot of fun back in like 99-2002 doing highway runs in the turbo vr6. Lots of fun...and never went to jail ironically enough.

Well I have yet to turbo my miata, but it doesnt say biggest miata kill! So in my spec I took out everything from slightly modded sti's to 6.0 gtos, but the best race was against a talon who thought he was hot ****, i raced him before at 3psi and beat him, and he made all these excuses, and I told him that my car wasnt running well and that I would run him with 10psi, anyways a summer goes by and i see him, and with four other people in the car, so five all together, I walked him. And yes some of my buddies with me were 200+lbs so you know how that is....priceless

Hmm... Most satisfying kill? A Suzuki GSX-R 600.

There is special something about taking out a bike...
