anyone know how fast these things are supposed to be?
This young guy driving a "315hp" roadster gave me a run from a dig. As i was waiting for the turn lane to finish up, he asks me "are those things slow?" Realizing that i may be staring at the 4 exhaust pipes in a second, i replied humbly... "not really"
The pepboys were smokin out of tha gate (5k launch), get 2 cars on him, 2nd gear pulled another car, and in third he hung there till i shut it down at about 85. Im sure hed be able to take a stock turbo rex from a roll if 4th gear is called on, but from my race it was hard to say, as he did not gain any ground after the launch.
the driver was cool, we both were astonished that a rex with 2 people and full tank of gas managed to stay in front of him well past civil speeds.
im curious how quick these are, as this is the first whoopin ive dished out to a competent car. I think a stock rex might have been eatin up by the ragtop shoe.
all i have is bosal dp, gutted oem up-pipe and cobb stage II flash.
guess my insecurities about having to line up to an e36 m3 at a light have vanished.
