Whats the deal with these VR-4 drivers.I've personally raced 4 mustang Gt's and beaten 3. Not by much but it was still a win. And I have a FWD 222HP Base. Either the VR-4 drivers can't drive, or they really werne't VR-4's, or these are some nice aftermarket Mustangs.
"He had an a-pillar gauge, so I knew it had to be hooked up"
WTF? I've got an a-pilar gauge, my car isn't even BPU. Dumbass. Besides, I've beaten blown 5.0's, 4.6's, and there's a new Stage III Roush (Vorteched) around Tulsa hurtin from the whooping my buddy put on him in his VR-4. Not to say our cars dont get beat by mustangs, they do (my cousin's Cobra would have kicked my ass before it broke), I'm just saying the guy that posted that thread is an idiot. Oh, loved the beached whale comments we got too. Funny how people talk smack about the beached whale untill they pull up next to you at a light, and suddenly get real quiet.
but 1_fast_stang also mentioned in that old thread that he ran a low-mid 13 with a STOCK stang GT.
is that possible?
I'd assume even with 50 degree weather... 0% humidity.. he still would have a hard time getting a high 13 sec timeslip.
or am I just another uneducated rice boy...
btw... i beat a 2000 Saleen 281 and quite a few 99-00 Cobras/GTs back when I was racing to get into the 12's... so that's where all my scepticism comes from. I also lost to my fair share of GTs.. but they were quite a ways away from stock.
It's kids like this "I gave him the flashers" that ruin it. What a F-ing dork! I hope no one on the board gives anyone they just beat the "flashers" This is why I hate mustabg owners. I like the cars, I hate the owners. I like this one too "He had an a-pillar gauge, so I knew it had to be hooked up". I have a dual pillar pod for my auto and my car is slow as shit. This kid is an ass.
looking at the exhaust and a pillar pod is not enough to justify that a car is 'hooked up'
My friend had a huge monster tach on his Civic 1.6L non-VTEC... so is he considered 'hooked up'? Ripping those 17 second 1/4 mile passes and all...
It all really boils down to what mods the Mustang had at the time... and even then... I don't really care... lotta peeps have huge egos they feel to reveal online... it'll only take time before that huge ego gets crushed by a Civic. Then he can do nothing more than hide that big ego in his arse.
Don't let that thread get to ya... just the stereotypical 'vr-4 is soo heavy' thread... where unedumakated people feel like discussing something they don't understand.
Shawn---he's not a kid, he's an adult... a police officer in Tampa Bay. He did the whole flasher thing because that's what all the local ricers do and he wanted to emphasize his point and rub it in the 3000gt's face by flashing him.
Pacman3000gt---He also knows his car isn' the fastest on the street because Tamparacing.com keeps a database of users' times and there is a Civic that runs a 10.61 @ 134, as well as other Stangs that are in the low/mid 11's. The way I see it, when you build a street car to run mid 11's, you earn the right to be a little cocky.
What's with the whole "ricer" thing on those boards? Everyone who drives an import is a ricer? I read in a cycle world, that upon seeing the new Harley V-rod, most old school Harley riders called it a rice rocket. Yeah, with a PORSCHE engine! My daily driver is a Camaro, I had that way before my VR-4 and I knew well enough to know there's a difference between rice and import. I dunno, I beat GT's all the time in Denver with just an intake. Turbos compress air easier at altitude, but still, how would our cars compare to a GT when we go around some corners and our AWS, viscous coupling, and sport suspension are all kicked in? I know we take corners better at low speeds even before the AWS kicks in because I valet in a tight parking garage. Final thought, I think the whole "imports are ricers and ricers suck" attitude is called mulletude. And if you want to see how cool mulletude is, check out mulletsgalore.com!
LONG LIVE THE IMPORT KING!!!!!!!! THE 3S!
Speeyuk---not with slicks and a 1.6 60 foot time. It also depends on gearing, and he usually runs his car at the 1/8 mile track. I know he has never trapped 120 because he was just talking about it the other day.
Here's a quote from him about his latest 1/8 mile run:
Thursday November 8th, 2001 10:46 am
back from sunshine last night turned in a new best 1/8th time
7.58 @ 92.57 (1.648) with slicks
