I was talking to this very hot chick at the races a few months back. She had a 2000 Convertible S-281 NA. Anyways, I said: Hey that should run around 14flat, do you want to race for the fun of it? Her hilarious response was: "This thing runs 12s from the factory"

I checked the entire car out and it was a BONE STOCK S-281. Anyways because she was cute and drove a sweet car I let the ignorant comment go and went on my way. Now I was thinking......Would this have been a good war story? Assuming clean shifts how do you think it would have gone, I saw her launch from a light when leaving and she SSSPPPUUUNNN so don't know how good a driver she actually is.

S-281's are nice cars but there is no way she runs 12's from the factory in an N/A. If she was an excellent drive she could have hit high 13's i.e. 13.9, and thats if she was an excellent driver.

You are so full of shit!

Hmm....I wonder what happened to the rest of my post. Anyway, I stated that Saleen's own website gave performance numbers for the Saleen S-281--the 1/4 was a [email protected] is with a good driver. The convertible is not going to pull times like that;)

The SC-281 will run a mid-low 13 @ around 105MPH. They are real close to stock LS1's. The NA S-281 is just a little quicker then regular GT's.

Well Powel what do you think man? I think I might have been able to take her.

270bhp (I think for the NAS281)
260bhp (approx for my GST)

I beat a StealthTT from a roll 10-85 by a car. Also lost 4 races against him too though.....stop and roll.

Oh well guess Im by myself thinking I could have taken her.

It's a drivers race. You will more than likely win.
