Tonight I was on my way home and my girlfriend was in the car with her cousin after I dropped her off. I told her to ask him if he wanted to race me when she got into his car. He has a Monte Carlo "SS" that he thinks is the shit. We were talking about cars last spring and he was telling me about how fast his car was. He even had the nerve to tell me he beat a 2000 Camaro SS on the highway :rolleyes: He said that my car was the slow and that he would kill me (4.6 SOHC Mustang). I tried to race him before in the Vr4 but he wouldnt do it :) He almost had me thinking these things were fast because he was talking about it so much.

Anyway we started at a light. I reved up to about 3000rpms and dumped the clutch. I spinned half way through first fish tailed a little but when I hooked up I was gone. I pulled a few carlengths (not really sure how many) then I shutdown. He did the famous ricer flyby, but at the next light he didnt want to race me again.

When I got home and called my girlfriend she said he admitted that he lost and she was laughing at him :) She then gave me a lecture about why I should not street race :rolleyes: This coming from a girl that encourages me to go to the track or go out and look for people to race for fun:(

He said that a Cobra R is the only Mustang that could beat him on the highway, and now he wants to race me from a highway roll :D

Hehe, good

Smoke him again! So the SS isn't the shit? Some guy in the car club of VT trashed the fuck out of my car on our listserve [it was Friday, I wasn't chilling on the PC to defend]... I got back and was like WTF, you wanna go, but he did, exactly like you said, talk SO MUCH SHIT, I had my doubts. After the night he shut up, so we never got into it, just wondering how I'd do.

I did this with a 1996 Mustang Gt with just flows. I was thinking it could be comparable to the older Impala "SS" but his car was a joke.

Actually,

That is the car he has, a 1996 Impala SS - he called my car an 18-second boat. Damn I was pissed the next morning... punk! What do you think, 92 TT v 96 Impala SS... how about with AVC-R, bov, and full exhaust + racing clutch? :) I have no idea how those fuckers perform AT ALL!

1) All Impala SS's (mid 90's models) were automatics.

2) Factory rated 260hp LT1 engine.

If you have no problems dispatching LT1 Camaros, Firebirds, then the Impala won't be a problem either, considering how heavy that thing is.

It's a cool car, for what it is. I mean, they look nice and all.

The first day I dyno'd my car, I saw one pull on. It had a nice shiney intercooler up front. Pulled 471rwhp. I'm thinking that I'd have a tougher time putting the smack down on that model, compared to the more <i>stock</i> versions. :)

Y do peoples talk so much shit before any race, maybe just for intimidation. This is how I race: the guy next to me rev like crazy and I sit there patiently. Suddenly the light turns green, 4 wheels spin and take off like a silent missle attacks:D. He said what the f***, and I'll be grinning ear to ear.

I lost to a Impala SS before in my Mustang. They are real fast when they are blown.

Black94VR4: your car looks nice. Do you think 275/35/18s would work up front on those rims?

VR4me,
It should, but I rather go w/ 9.5" rims for 275mm. They'll fit much better and look even meaner, but becareful of the rubbing.

Way to respresent the Mustang :) !!! I can't stand stupid people. I had one dude challenge my Mustang in a Monte Carlo too. I wouldn't even waste my gas on him (and more importantly time)! Does your VR4 have any mods? What about the stang?
