racen a lexus IS 300
 
it was about 7 this morning and i was at a light and i looked over and saw this hella hot girl in a new IS 300, she nodded as if she was saying lets go, i the light turned and we both took off, she had a bit of a jump on me, sje had 1/2 a car on me but when i hit about 60 i pulled 2 car lenghts on her, and i shut it down at 80, she couldnt touch me, but im sure at about 100 she would fly by me. but then she pulled up next to me on the free way later on and gave me a thumbs up and shook her head. man that felt good to beat a new lexus, and my car is a fraction of the price, and proby handles better! here are my mods
2.5" magnaflow cat back
shorty intake
FC pully kit
65mm t/b

nah, IS 300's arent that fast. But they are hella-sweet looking and ride nice and are pretty torquey. My friends brother has one and dogs the shit outta it all the time lol

P.S. - now, a Mugen chipped 3.2TL... thats a nasty 4-door luxury car lol

1. you raced a girl
2. it was a new car
don't plan on beating is 300's that often with your zx3................ an SVT can keep up, and actually beat one for a little while, but after around 45 they'll come around you, that's what happens every time i race my friend in his IS

Hmmmm, I was thinking about buying an IS300. But maybe...not anymore. Now...what about an IS430?

Will the Focus ever be able to keep up with an IS300, eclipse, integra, lancer, rx-7, or mustangs? Ho hum.[:(]
