SVT vs. GS-R

had my first race the other day. On my way home from work, i saw an integra, lowered, exhaust, typical stuff. I was behind the guy, and rode his ass on purpose so hed hit the gas..well he did, then I did, and got beside him. We both downshifted and we were even until 3rd gear..then i started pulling on him. Bythe tikme we hit 120, I was about 2 car lenghts ahead. Atg 135, he was toast! pretty fun race, but not as fun as my supercharged v6 stang. When the race was over, I stayed in fron of him at the next light so he could see my dealer tags, and rub it in he got beat by a stock car!

GS-R NO NO NO NO NO

VERY SLOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The type R is a different model than the GS-R Seb, one has like 130-160 horses(who really cares and a type R has 195 that really [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]g moves. Those cars if handled by the right driver could cream our SVT's all day.

Type-R's def d d defin definately faster than GSR's. A buddy of mine (rich little bastard) has a type are that is running 13.4's And thats in Utah! A GSR would be a pretty fun race for our SVT's I must say.

Aside from the B18C's lack of torque, the Type R manages to impress me everytime I get in my buddies. His car is completely stock except for a catback, and man it hauls, handles, and stops. I especially like the factory limited slip...now if only SVT got the clue way back in 2002....

Nice kill.

Nice kill but you were doing 135? That's crazy. I'm surprised you didn't get yourself killed.
