Silly ricers.

I enjoy destroying them. One of the last times I was at the track a Civic guy came up to me and was like, "hey, do you wanna race? I might give you a good run. How fast does that thing usually go?"

Me: "well last time I was pulling low 15s off the bottle in the heat, should be good for a 14.9-15.1 if I could get a good run"

honda owner:"oh, that. I only run high 16s"..

Does my car LOOK slow or something?....lol..

That's what I'm saying. I need to find an old abanadoned air strip somewhere in san diego (pff..ya right). That was an awesome story venom! I like what I'm hearing about Toms tune. You think you could have taken some of them without the tune action?

I wish I could go play on a airport runway. LOL


Nice wins, I really like it when people see a focus and think its slow and when they loose the looks on their faces are priceless.

toms tune... AMAZING! Last time i dragged my friend on the strip in his SRT-4 i blew past him through first, and he cought me at the end of second, when befor he'd catch me at about halfway through second... Toms tune is perfect. You get ALOT more punch around 3k and just keeps building... I'm glad this is my first tune... i hope i can see this much difference in any of my other tunes (hopefully next... Powerworks supercharger...) Anyway...

Yeah, the "strip" as we call it is a WONDERFUL spot. No cops. Private property. All fun... and we always try and set rules to the races, if anyone gets out of hand, they dont come back... ever.

Funny thing... i was in walmart the other day and this kid came up to me and was like "your that kid with that WAY quick focus arnt you!!!" He saw me that night and wanted to know what he could do to be able to make his car as fast as mine (he drove a 99 Civic EX). I told him to learn how to launch and shift... The best way to make your car fast is learn everything about it and how to drive it...

Alot of people just put bolt-ons and dont even know how to launch/drive their car... Anyone know what i'm talking about?

I wish all of you could have seen the crowd around me that night... and i had peopld gawking and looking over my SVT... It was weird, my friend with the SRT-4 usually gets all the gawking... but not that night. I dont know about anyone else, but i LOVE driving a stealthy car. the SVTF is perfect.
