No problem. I had seen this ugly ass orange riced out eclipse rs in town thinking he was the absolute shit. He had the complete ricer bodykit, wing, and even a fire extiinguisher mounted to the pillar on the passenger side front window. I see him one night while I was in a parking lot and ask him kind of jokingly what he had done to it. He replied with nitrous, i/h/e. I was like, Oh...shit. At first I was like, "Do you want to run me without the nitrous. He said that was fine, and we went out of town and lined them up.

It was absolutely disgusting on the first run. I got the jump of my life off a green light going on to the outer highway and proceeded to pull about 6+ cars to 80. I let off and went back to a parking lot.

He then got out of his car without saying a word, popped his trunk and opened his nitrous bottle. I asked him what he was running and he said zex 55 shot. We get back up to the light and wait for green. I think I'm going to get annialated so I knew I had to get a good start to even stay with him.

I revved to about 2500 rpm and dumped the clutch. With the traction I had then with some new tires, it was the perfect start with minimal wheel spin and straight acceleration. I pulled an immediate car length through the first 60 ft. It stayed this way up until 85 when we shut it down. If we had kept going I think he would have taken me. I couldn't see to well, but I think he was pulling ever so slightly on me the entire race, with his nose at my rear door towards the end.

We got back to the parking lot where I popped my hood to show him what little I had, intake. He then went on to say that he had no idea these thing were that fast. I asked him what he had beaten with his car and he told me 1st gen gsx and some others. I guess the driver really does make the car. If properly driven, I have a feeling that car was faster than mine.
But, the faster car doesn't always win the race now does it.

I really don't have anything against Saturns. That being said, is it me, or does something just not look right with these cars? I passed a mid-sized one the other day, and I could'nt put my finger on it, but there was something off about it.

I don't even like the look of my car much less those god awful L series. It's just transportation that will get me through college. I haven't had a race in at least 5 months or more. Hopefully I'll be stepping up to the whine of a grand prix gtp closer to graduation.
