My most fun kill ever was an NSX. I do auto brokering for people, and I was driving a 93 Porsche 911 C2 back from Boston. I finally get to the gate at the first toll booth in NY, and notice an NSX pulling ahead to the left, and then see about 25 of them in my rear-view. Must have been the NY NSX club. Pulled out with another guy to my left, we nailed it from about 15MPH, and the 911 totally pulled on him by a car length by 90 (which came very quickly). If you have never driven a 911, those flat 6s are torquey as hell.
Sold it 3 weeks later ($4500 profit), but I think about it all the time, and can't wait to get another Porsche...

slammedfoci As far as turboed civics go. A single cam turbo is very slow unlesss he has some other stuff done to it. One of my buddys has a 95 si hatch SOHC witha lot a stuff done to it. He raced a 96 turboed dx with full exhaust and intake and won by like a half a car. Both of them can drive very good. He wants to race me. I may just to see what happens.

hitthewall i learned along time ago to watch out for civic hatches in my area. in seattle, we have a very big import scene, and many of the civic hatches around here are SLEEPERS. we're talkin type-R and GSR motors in a good 80% of them out there. the 2 doors and 4 doors around here seem to be all show, no go. but i watch out :D just wait til next week when the turbo goes in :D.

YUP! I felt like that I wanted to see how fast he would go but never got the chance to see. Although before he wefollowed me by the next 20 miles all the way to college, but before he left he stompped the gas and it was loud and fast I don't think I would stand a chance.
