SE-R? pppfffffttttt

i thought these things were supposed to be some kind of fast A SVT slayer, i was on the service road, about to get on the highway, one in front of me in the next lane, just as soon as i get close he punches it, i punch it too, catch up next to his side, i hear the guy shifting pretty loud, and im still climibing RPMs and passing him just ever so slightly every shift he makes, he always seemed to shift just alittle b4 me, anyway if we were at the track im sure id have owned him, but given he had a jump start, i had 2 ppl in the car a spare MTX75 and my old suspension in the back along w/ bunch of other crap, alignment is off, timing is off, all in all SE-R gets a thumbsdown from the bolt on ZX3

Nice, I'm sure you would have owned him at the track as well. Haha, I wonder if he was surprized a Focus could give him such a run.

Maybe he had the Nissan equivalent of the MTX-75 in his trunk, and bags of cement in the back seat.
