    because:

    the guy don't know how 2 drive man...
    pretty simple aint it? I personally witnessed a modded '93 3000GT TT run a 13.2 @ 108 with a 2.3 sixty foot.... 2.3!!! Thats someone whose either babying the car OR does not know how to drive it....

    dug-e-fresh, did you race that '99 vr-4 again? i know you guys were going to set something up
    We didn't really have anything set up per se, like a time or date... but we new each other was gonna be down where we go though.

    That night I was at a friends B-day party getting hammered... we got a call saying that everyone was looking for me... that the 3000GT was there and ready. Sooo... my cousin and a bunch of other friends got together and ran down there (about a 30 minute drive or so). My cousin drove.... he was sober...

    We get there.... all kind of people are around. The details were being sorted out and all, and the descision was made that my cousin was to race my car due to my condition. Meanwhile the onwer of the VR4 had someone else lined up to drive his car anyway.... so after a few failed attempts (police and all) the race was finally on... my cousin lost.

    He came back pretty confident that if they raced again he would win.... he said he bogged REAL bad off the line and then locked him... but noone had confidence in his driving and wouldn't put anything up.

    Sooo now it had been about 2 hours since we had gotten there. I hadn't had anything to drink for at least 3 hours and was feeling rather sober... Sooo, like an idiot I decided to drive my own car... this brought in the money. I think the 1st race totaled from both sides like $300... this one reached $520!

    So now I expected the owner to drive his own car, as they had said in the 1st race if I drove, he would drive.... but no. The owner would not drive his car and said no deal if his driver couldn't do it. We agreed.... and we lost.

    We were side by side through 3rd gear (me with a little bit of an edge early) and then he pulled pretty hard and passed me. Oh well... I should not have drove, I felt bad for all the people who had faith in me.... the whole race I just felt slow and sluggish... I guess the effects of the alcohol had yet to wear off as much as I thought they had.

    I did not lose any money as I hardly ever bet, especially on myself... I feel like thats a jinx....

    Some SAY he had put on a 50 shot... and thats why he did not drive his own car, and supposedly why he pulled so hard near the end... the guy who drove was SAID to be pretty familiar at running a turbo/awd/n2o car.

    I dont believe that personally, HOWEVER, someone very reliable did say he had a boost controller on the car... which he said before he didn't.... again THIS IS ALL HERESAY!!!!!!

    On the street, you hear alot of things.... some is true some is not. Its hard to sort it all out... harder still not to listen....

    I know what I believe, that night the 3000GT was faster. Plain and simple... I dont care how or why... it just was. Oh well....

    Actually I have another WRX that wants to race him if hes game... but not sure when the owner can get out. Stay tuned!!

    Dug, i'm sorry you lost all that money!! that's messed up.
    why can't you guys race fo bragging rights as opposed to money?
    just a question.
    Also, i don't understand why all the mysteries about mods, i'm sure if he replies to this, he'll tell us what he's done to the car since the first race.
    IMO, a boost controller+ downpipe & gutted cats would cost just as much as N2O and net you much bigger gains. maybe that's what he did to his car? who knows.
    anyway, i'll keep checking the thread to see what happens.

    If he replies I hope he doesn't think I am "in fantasy land" again.

    Let me make it clear:

    He, the owner, said he was NOT running nitrous of ANY shot AND he was NOT running a boost controller.

    It was through others lips and ears that the BC and 50 shot were brought up... I am not implying nor am I insinuating that he had either.

    I personally think a BC is possible... I mean whats most people 1st mod on there car.... but the 50 shot, nah... I think that was a bogus claim. But thats my personal beliefs... for god sake do not take my word for it.

    People hate to lose... especially when its their money. Alot of people come up with some funny ways of dealing with their loss... you know, the whole conspiracy thing.

    But, like I said, I dont bet on myself...I rarely bet at all. But alot of people have faith in me down there. Sooo, me getting together a pot really is not that hard. I felt bad losing though. Not for myself... but foe everyone else. I let them down.

    It was kinda weird that he refused to drive his car the 2nd time though. I should have held out and made that a term. Again, oh well..... such is life.

    BTW- something has been up with my car recently. It has not been running as strong as it should. I think my unichip is to blame...

    Recent track results have been less than expected... or shall I say more than expected.. times being in the 13.4s and such and trapping at 99mph.

    One night for example I was trapping high 102s (with a bad launch), and then out of nowhere I just started hitting 98s and 99s, almost like a switch. The ECU may be pulling timing... but I still think it may be the unichip....

    Hey, there's something wrong with my car too.
    I got the Launch down, but my traps are weak for stock.
    I think my clutch must be slipping 'cause by the then of the mile i'm just about redlining 3rd gear, but other peoples rides redline @ 105-106 MPH. I'm trapping 99 at best MPH in the .
    Take a look at my best time.
    R/T...............952
    60'.............1.827
    330.............5.649
    1/8..............8.851
    MPH.............78.64
    1000.............11.611
    1/4................13.920
    MPH...............97.92

    I also think my ECU is messed up, i'm getting horrible gas mileage and i had the 02 sensors checked and they were fine

    I'll have to figure something out.
    I only have a cone filter in my car though so i'm basically still stock.
    Anyway, good luck figuring out what's wrong with your car.

    A bad catalytic converter will destroy your gas mileage and slowly decrease your HP.

    If you have changed the size of your tires you will change the speed at which you are redlining the gears.

    However that is a big difference... perhaps the clutch is slipping and in actuality your engine should NOT be at redline yet...

    can you get it checked out?

    Yes they are very heavy cars. The stock VR4's I see at the track are running mostly in the low 14s in the 1/4 mile. I think they are very driver dependent like the WRX.
    I watch one that couldn't run any better than mid to high 9s in the 1/8 mile the other night. This was in extremely hot and humid air. My buddy quote "man that driver must suck". because yes it was a VR4 and it was running the same times stock WRXs run.

    I also have a friend with a VR4. He is an excellent driver and know how to pull easy 1.8, 60' times .It has exhaust mods, intake, and a manual boost controller. He told me his best 1/4 mile time is 13.4

    What we are also forgetting they cost as much as a C5 Corvette?
