Two nights ago i raced me and my friends went to go race by this one golf course. Its a long straight road that stretches for more a full mile. We went at around 11:30PM. We had one of our friends flag us and did a lot of runs that night. When i raced the Saleen(oh btw not supercharged) i beat him in the 1/4 mile but later at around 90 mph, it catches me like nothing and burns me. with the s2000, i blow it away from the launch and it has a hard time keeping up but eventually does the same thing as the saleen. but i gotta say that those two guys cannot shift for jack. but hey a win is a win rite? they say they can but if they can, i am not suppose be smoking the both of them in the 1/4 mile. i rev to about 4500 rpm or 5000 rpm and just drop the clutch.

Oh btw the s2000 wins against the saleen. goes to show who is better at shifting. i also have another friend that drives a m3 w/ nos. he has the fastest car in my team. he shifts pretty good too. he smokes, w/o the nos, the s2000 and the saleen and me of course.

The Saleens for the most part are not that impressive. The non blown version is merely a GT with suspension, appearance and air package. (might also have intake, but im not sure)

With Saleen you pay for the name. Although if I had the money I would buy one just for the collectability.

I believe if you pay for a Saleen s281, your paying for the handling and braking improvements. With that shop as well as others, its How fast/How much money.

So to get the extra power, you either go for a S281-E or move up to an SR.

Do they still make the S351?

You can buy a supercharged s-281 or the s281-E....The SR is a serious car, hand made suspension and about 150K.....good run with the s281 and the s2k....I am still waiting to run a WRX off the line, I have run them on the freeway and pulled on them pretty easy but really want to see these SWEET WRX's pull hard off the line
:D

Oh yea the do not make the s351 anymore:(

Raced the S281 yesterday. Took it out and just hammered it. He couldn't pull on me at all. I only have a boost controller for mods. ran 15.5 psi i think. Can't wait to race the s2000. I am getting a cat-back hks exhaust next week. maybe it'll help me in top end? don't really know. i'll keep you guys informed. me and my friends do a lot of street racing. our team organize our own street races with people flaggin us.

Good run.....What year Saleen? The new s281's have 285hp and should run the 1/4 in 13.9 at 100-101mph on average....not sure what your car would run with the mods that you have.....sounds like it was a good race.....The s2000 is faster on topend then the saleen to the best of my knowledge....I am still looking for my first race with an s2k:D
