I just was fooling around last night and had 2 encounters... I was again just fooling around.

G35 4 door
3.2 acura tl type s

The reason for my title is that in both cases I was just driving and both of these cars "goated" me into racing...I usually wouldnt race either car because frankly its not much fun, but you know the moment presented itself.

My girlfriend was present and both cars were from high rolls around 70mph and both cars look like they were standing still once boost came in. Its just funny that both cars are very quick cars to normal cars and I just love how all these mods we do = them being very slow cars... My gf had to ask if they even were going and in both cases I asked and both of them gave some thumbs up and said whoa...It was all in good fun.

What cars have you guys raced that you at one point thought were fast and then once you were modded you walked like they were standing still ?

A stock WRX. :tongue:

In all seriousness, go race a bone stock Z06 and then report back to me. It's easy to think that a 350whp subaru is super fast (I know, I owned one) but when you start thinking about the grand scheme of things it's not all that.

A stock LS1 f-body will put down 300whp and a Z06 will make around 350whp bone stock.

Not trying to start **** as I'm sure you're aware of this. I'm just saying that I thought the same thing about my old WRX until I ran my buddies bone stock WS6 on my pump gas map (300whp) and barely pulled on him even after all my mods.

Silver,

I am fully aware of all of my competition and even the cars that I am no where near too..

Here was my point:

Cars I used to think were fast , its nice to gauge my power vs them. It gives me a barometer for where I'm at. I am not that fast in the scheme of things but cars I used to think were really fast are'nt anymore. It was just a little eye opening...Look at what I referenced...a g35 and 3.2 type s...not an ls1 nor ls2...or 911 turbos...those cars are considered ridiculous by the norm. Not us because of the world we live in but to someone else there crazy fast...

I don't know about everybody else but in the grand scheme of things the cost of a 911 or a Z06 is way more than the cost of modding a WRX, in my opinion for the cost of our cars it's well worth all the power we have, awsome car by the way 13secwrx:wiggles:

But don't forget, those cars that you don't think are fast anymore are still stock. Im guessing the g35 sedan and 3.2TL-S were both stock. You must have somewhere around 5-6k in mods on your car, which in defense of the g35 and 3.2, is not fair. Im not trying to rag on you or anything but if I were to put $6k into my g35 coupe, then race from a 70mph roll, things would be much different. Again, im not trying to flame on you or anything. Im just reminding you that those cars that you beat are still fast but don't have 6k in mods put into them.

Its not about the mods...its not a who vs who, its just a timeline. Like what once used to be fast and now isn't...its not saying oh these cars suck, its just how things changed.

I knew what he meant but im just trying to remind him that, yes they are slower then he is now but they are still quick cars nevertheless. Im sure he respects those cars. Im just saying to watch out because there are g35's and 3.2's out there quicker than he is.

sure..everywhere you go there's someone faster....

I learned that lesson in my modded supra (used to wax vipers at the track)....I came across a stock looking Z06 that wan't so stock....he ended up being a Lingenfelter TT

I hope you do see my point..I am refering to them in stock form. I am actually referring to all cars in stock form. Mods have made my car faster then these cars and now I can see the difference.

P.s: I ran a greddy turbo'd g 35 and won...and I know there are faster ones of that one...but not many ;) ..

I dont think there are many 3.2's either...s/c they still dont make over 300whp... Never seen a turbo'd one nor one that would do low 12's like me...nor a g for that matter..unless you know something I dont...

who knows though...someone out there...I'm sure of it.

wow - so many people just bashing.

good kills man. I wish i could do the same. And to those who said "let me put 6k in mods in my g35" well... how about the cost differenece stock for stock? Ya u could dump 6K into the g35 but then you will be alot more expensive still than a modded wrx.

I know exactly what u are saying 13sec - i like running against modded lancers (used to own one) and seeing how much faster stock i am than them. Its not becasue i nkow i can beat them, just nice to know where i once was and where i stand now, because i know what cars i could and coudlnt beat with the lancer (not many)

I hate when people start the well give....

That starts a huge tit for tat war, coulda would shoulda...this isn't bracket racing and if we're talking about "evening the playing" in anyway shape or form there is no real way to do it. Its run what you brung and hope you brung enough...thats the same arguement people as "ok you beat me BUT can you beat my cousins next door neighbors uncle in Florida with a 8 second GN? AH HA!" .02

I was in my old 86 Jetta (like 85 hp, mods I had one of those wider rear view mirrors :D ) and was at a light with a muscle car (I forgot as this was several years ago). It was raining. Green light, I go easily, and the guy slipped for 2 seconds. I gained about 5 cars on him instantly :D He really was standing still too! :rotfl:
















Sorry I just had to add my lil story after that comment. Just thought it was funny ;)

Who's bashing??? I stated a couple times that im not flaming him at all. Why don't you read every word first before you start flaming on me. You wanna talk cost difference??? Ok, just for you, ill buy myself a '94 civic hatchback for $4000. Ill put an H22 motor with a T3/T4 with an AEM stand-alone for my engine management. Maybe buy some slicks and even a 100 shot of nitrous. Hmmm....lets see, all this for less than what a WRX or a G35 cost. POINT BEING, you cannot compare the price of a stock wrx vs a stock g35. One is luxury and the other is for
auto-x or the strip. Now when it comes to modding, the base price of the car means absolutely nothing. Its about how much money you put AFTER you buy it and i stated my example above.
Now back to this bashing thing. When did i ever bash 13secwrx??
I too had a wrx in the stage 4 area so i know the ability of a wrx.
Get your facts straight before you talk.

13secwrx: I knew what you meant from the very start and this is not at all pointed towards you. This post is pointed towards the immature member who had to make this into something bad.

Yes you're immature. I was simply making my point to counter what you said and you had to be sarcastic in this post. You seem immature and dumb when you start sounding like a smart a$$. Anyways, in respect to 13secwrx, im down arguing about this.

Good kills 13sec
