I have raced the following: c6- beat him, charger srt- beat him - m3 beat him Porshe 996 c4- beat him.

Trouble: Viper, Zo6, and these little high school kids in thier tuned Mitusu's are pissing me off. TRD needs to get off thier ass and get us a supercharger!

by the way, ferrari-scaletti- head to head to 150 mph!! girlfriend was with me- turns out that beating a ferrari is an aphrodesiac!!!

^Haha, I'm sure it is

Sounds like some good runs!! Any vids?

The Viper's and Z06's as well as any tuned Mitsubishi is going to beat the F. What Mitsu's are you talking about? Evo's? Those Evo's tuned are beastly, I got beat by one and it wasn't even funny. It doesn't help us that they're AWD

What model M3 was it if you don't mind me asking?

Brother, Evo 8 and 9 are Beasts IF they're tuned by Vishnu Tuning..For Around $2k you get them jumped to 400 Hps, you get 3.8-4.0 Sec 0-60 cars..Same with Sti's..I raced Sti's and Evo's past week and none of them were not heavily tuned so they had no chance same with Evo 10 at least till mods are out for 10's..As for Ferrari It's fast but it's more of a Prestige car and then racing overall..Hm, kinda odd that the person would race you..Still good that you beat him..I'm gonna wait 1-2 year or less pending on and get a GT-R when the dealers stop jacking up the fu**in price on these as a second car..Last Z06, DO NOT race that car it's a BEAST! I raced one on the road, NO CHANCE! F will get eaten alive..
Honestly this is my opinion but even with the S/C not sure how much more difference it will make..In one hand if 3rd party brings out Turbo then we have a shot..Actually you might want to talk to Andy on a thread he started about deposits..

Is the Z06 fast? Bone stock with slicks broke 11 seconds in the 1/4 mile and the new Z06 ZR1 clocked the fastest lap at Germany's Nurburgring...faster than the new GT-R, and Porsche 911 GT2! For the price there is no car in the same hemisphere as the new Z06

Correction: The Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR did a 7:22 while the ZR-1 clocked a 7:26. The Z06 is no slouch though.

17 deposits so far for the "forced induction". AMS is actually known to make the fastest EVO's out there. They actaully own a EVO that run's 8 second 1/4 mile times !! Check out AMSPerformance.
As far as the Viper and Z06, they are stupid fast. I've drivin both and WOW !!

I stand corrected....I was quoting the new Sports Car International as of July....It's seems like the HP wars are heating up again! Too bad Dodge is unloading the Viper and the end is near for the American legend.

While driving the IS-F a few days ago, I HATE to admit it, but I was actually passed by an old lady using her walker.... :( Of course I was stuck in typical Chicago traffic in downtown chicago. I'll tell you what, that lady sure knew how to make that walker move !!

yeah, I looked up the 612 scaleitti and it was 12.5 qtr. Still fun! Somebody please do the dyno research with mods and get us more speed! I was exited about a Super charger but now is see from some of you that it may not even give us much performance boost. Is turbo the ticket?

From what I see now, turbo's can get you more power and seem to be more realiable. Cross your fingers and hope we have enough people that I can get Lexus to listen !
