I surpised the hell out of some *** in a Solstice last summer. He was driving like a total *** so I showed him what 10psi of poorly tuned Greddy could do.

Other than that ... nothing. And I'm willing to bet that half the kills here were unaware they were in a contest of speed

I was able to beat a GT3 at an autocross. The owner said that the course didn't work well for his car, that he was out of his powerband. Uh-huh. I drive a turbo 1.6, what do I know about power band.

Best kill was a Mercedes SL55 AMG in the twistys on an uphill drive

Young guy (perhaps 20) with daddies car, he kept on my bumper during the whole village, falling back 5 meters and then advancing to 1m distance with a blib of the throttle
He passed me directly after the village sign with WOT, I try'd to keep behind using my nitrous (50 shot)

I got him in the first tight 120 left corner, where his ESP went on , I passed him in the INSIDE of the corner in a slight drift and and pushed me in front of him with the help of the little bottle. The face of the guy in the mercedes was priceless.

Ok , he got me on the next long straight and blasted away, but this was no more important for me :-)

Inital D fan???? :gay: :gay: :gay:

I've got 220 wheel HP on a ported, built, BBB FM2 and the fastest car ive beat was a 2004 GTI VR6 with medallion exhuast and exklusiv Intake from a 30 roll. I concider myself a realy good driver too. I think most of the people here are talking out their asses (specially that one guy who listed the 911 turbo and 03 cobra.....I dont think they were racing you buddy).

Haha true stock miatas aren't that fast in straight lines but damn when you throw a turbo on em they get going quick. I've taken a 270 whp evo, couple gt's and others... Once I had a guy on a bike riding near his friends big F-350 told me at a light " hey I bet this guy can beat you" I said "ok" gave him a 3 car length headstart of the line and then blew past him. Looked like he just had a chip and exhaust although they are fast for a big heavy truck.

Hey cheesenuts, sorry to here you are only making 220 whp with a built FM2. Even if you are this great driver you consider yourself to be, there are stock engines running 8psi that are making more hp than you are with your money motor. Not only do you need to reconsider your power options, maybe you need to take some driving lessons too!:gay: :gay: :gay:

I'd rather be Cummin than Strokin.


Frequently see that above the windshield of some bad *** Cummins running rigs.

Im running 10 psi and have a 2 3/8 inch exhust going through a cat and a N/A muffler. Its getting a test pipe, 3inch catback with no muffler, and a retune to 15psi soon. I do concider myself a good driver with plenty of auto-x, road racing, and drag racing experience. I highly doubt too many people are making more hp than me at 8psi and still being decent for the street. Any *** can mount a gt35 to a miata and make it a dyno queen. Im more into reliability and being able to beat the **** out of my car without thinking twice. Maybe ill turn it up to 20+psi for a dyno run so I can impress losers like you....no probly not. Oh and the GTI thing was a joke.

I think you got a cool car ... it was funny he called you cheesenuts though . Honestly it didnt sound like you were joking though. My car at 8-9psi on Megasquirt was about as fast as a stock sti from a roll. Cant say anything more than that because for one, my car is on jacks right now, and two, i have not done much besides Autox racing with the car since buying it.
