    Seriously. What big-block engine sounds like that?! Sounds like a 50cc dirt bike that I rode as a kid. I'd still love to have an RX7 though. Of course, now after hearing that, I'd apparently have to keep the thing quiet.

    There is a video of this guy handing a Saleen its A$$ on kazaa, I think i would like it more if it were not for the huge amounts of black smoke eminating from the tailpipe...at Idle...hey Mr. Officer I have destroyed my emissions control equipment please give me a ticket. Black smoke is not cool no matter how fast your car is.

    i went searching for the video mentioned above, but couldn't find it. I did find, however, a video of an rx-7 basically chasing down a dodge viper 500 and walking on it like the car was tied down. jeezus.

    so link that video (the viper chasing), because i would really enjoy seeing that. Sounds terrible IMO, but man they are fast cars.

    I can't. I downloaded it from limewire. but you can search for it on your favorite file sharing program.

    it's called, "Street Racing - RX7 vs Dodge Viper.mpeg"

    it's definitely worth your time to download if you find it.

    LOL. How true. I want a fast car... but I'm not ready to crap on the environment for it. Well... technically with a car I already am but I do have my limits.

    I think I have a clip on my computer somewhere of a RX-7 destroying an '03 Cobra. It was sick. A sad thing to see for us Cobra fans. (Of course... the Cobra was stock. I read in MMFF that with headers back... you jump from 365hp at the wheels, to 420hp at the wheel. And that's only exhaust!) Crazy power out there.

    Anyway, I'll see if I can find that vid and post it.

    I've got a movie of a Civic Del Sol beating a Viper.

    And a 4-wheeler ATV beating a Mustang.

    Or how about a Snowmobile that races a Firebird in the 1/4 and does around a 13.6

    Or maybe a Firetruck racing through a autox course? (does impressively well I might add)

    I've got lots of fun stuff!

    I just got done weedeating today, and that sounds just like my weedeater when it's running out of gas/oil.

    If I drove that car, I'd have to turn the music up very loud...that just sounds like crap.

    My friend has a 93 RX7, slightly modded, and it sounds much better.
