    Him and this SS were staging for their 1/4 mile run. The SS pulls up and purges, everyone goes nuts! Then the GVR4 runs a 12.5 to the SS's 12.6The crowd went crazy, great race.

    HEHE! Whats up mang? Here is the 12.18 vid against Mike in the SS. He wasn't on the bottle yet.

    I want a galant vr4 damnit, they're nasty. There is also a crazy white one with a large front mount around here. Frequently seen at Pruven Performance, I believe I know who owns it but he'll remain nameless. My cousin also has a nasty one too with 16g front mount.

    I think all 1500 or 2000 of them have been modded because they're pretty common, and when you do see them they're usually hooked up.

    The fact that they're nasty is old news, but its obvious gvr4 is looking to start trash talking and has succeeded again. He doesn't even give us the details. worthless post

    Not saying your car isn't fast- it is and it's a lot faster than mine. One thing you should note is that you drive a turbo vehicle. F/I cars suffer much less power loss at altitude than do N/A cars (i.e. the 14sec vette).
    While a N/A car may see very large gains at sea level, I would say that you shouldn't expect nearly as much from your own car. You'll gain some ground on your times, but not as much as would a vette for example.

    Exactly, I didn't want to mention that. But now that you you opened the door. One other thing to take into consideration is track conditions. Colorado = cold ass weather. So altitude density may have been much lower because it was cold. I made my 12.18 pass in 100 degree weather. Plus not all Cali tracks are @ SEA LEVEL.

    You still lose power, the Turbo has to wprk harder to make teh same psi, but there is less oxygen, and the IC is less effective.

    But yes not as bad as a NA car.

    Yep, just remove your #464 with #64. Did that make sense? Yeah I am on the GVR4 site as slow4dr and DSMTALK as #64/2K.

    If you do make it out here let me know. We can roll out to Fontana and beat some V8 ASS together.

    HATE TO BREAK THE PARTY BUT HER I GO

    Hey you gvr4 I think I know who are as a matter of fact you live like to minutes away and I belive i handed you your @$$ as a matter of fact last night. If I remember are conversation I think you told me you had like 232 to the wheels so you 300 number must be to the crank because you had just dyoned a couple of weeks ago. Well anyway I needed to break the party just because I thought it would be fun. I am not denying that there are not fast vr4's out there but your is not fast enought to beat the STI (Stock) okay you could probably put up a good fight.
    Well for everyone to see my mod list here they are: Inivida tubo back exhaust (no cat) blitz BOV, helix up pipe, hks replica exhaust manafold.

    So it looks like I am the TOUGH GUY now

    Will See you on the street!

    Not everyone that owns a sti is a prick I don't think that I have the fastest or most expense car I have had my @$$ handed to me plenty of times and have seen more ezpense more beautiful cars than my STI I love cars not matter what make or kind. But From an STI owner I have tryed to wave and give thumbs up to other sti owners and they act like they don't see you (you though they are looking right at you )

    can somebody please ban gvr4? all he is doing is instigating arguments.

    gvr4, if you beat an sti thats great. i don't mind you coming on here to tell us. sti owners arent cocky about their cars. most of them have worked hard all their lives to own what they have and are proud of their cars. the sti IS fast by most standards. if you want to have a constructive argument/conversation then have one. don't come here just to talk trash.
