    vortech supercharged s2000

    I know I have posted a few kills lately but the races keep coming. Im coming home late tonight from where our meet was supposed to be and the highway was clear. Up from behind an s2000 pulls up to me. It looks bone stock but Im up for a quick kill. So he pulls up to me at about 70 mph. I drop it in 3rd and we look and go. By 140mph...I know way too fast but the highway was bare, he was a car back. Im like holy sh%$ why didnt I just kill him. So we go again and this time from 40mph and he jumps the honk and I play catch up to 120mph eventually pulling even. I'm like what is going on. So we do one last 3 honk run from 40mph and I pull my best run and place 1 1/2 cars on him which isnt much but I ask him to pull over. I suddenly hear a whistle...Well low and behold he opened her up and had the vortech s/c. Nice looking unit all chromed out. He says hes running 7 or 8 lbs and is putting down around 300-310 whp. I told him my stats and we chatted. Very cool guy. His car was a major sleeper though. Stock looking exhausts and all. Great runs on the highway and a great overall car. I think it really depended on who got the jump and what gear we were in for the race. I was on 21 psi.

    Holy Crap batman!

    I didn't expect a sc S2000 to be that hard to kill with a WRX like yours..... I didn't know that those sc and get them a 100+ hp gain. YIKES!

    Good kill none the less. Take him from the dig if you wanna feel better

    nice runs man....very rare to run into a Vortech'ed S2K on the street.

    When a stock looking car that you should normally kill keeps up...you start to wonder if something is wrong with your car. At least you got to talk to him and found out it was S/Ced.

    Oh my god...Me and my girl who was my passenger so I had an extra body are laughing right now at this. We ran 3x and the only time he had me was when he went first. the middle race. The first time he couldnt pull me and the last time I took him by a car or car and a half. I have a witness, albeit partial but still a witness...

    I love reading your kill stories. Too bad this guy wasn't honest about the race on his own forum.
