Wow, I saw a honda vid with something like 46 PSI and I was majorly impress, 86 is mindblowing, 6 seconds. I cant even get in my car in 6 seconds.

Edit: That chick that cant park her car, and the dude waiting had to do it. Freaken hillarious!

That little roadway is for busses, normal commuters have to pay a toll I believe.

If my car left that hard I'd do that catholic **** too. Until then, I'll keep drinking goat blood for the dark-lord.

Unreal.

In my area English Racing is the DSM shop. I went to a drag night and they had half a dozen customer cars there. All street cars. All running in the 10's and low 11's. Quickest was an asian chick in an evo. No lightening done, it's her daily driver. 10.5's all night long. Stock turbo, stock bottom end.

God I wish our motors were that strong.

If I knew a year ago what I know now, I would have swapped my miata engine for a better motor. Either a V8 from the beginning or a S2000 motor, or a SR20, etc.

10's on the stock turbo AND bottom end, prove it!! I have seen high 10's on race gas and meth injection with stock turbo EVO's, but a 10.5 I have not.
