This dude down the street in an 01 Boxter. I have him until about 40, then he pulls away. I have not 1/4 this car yet, but I know its capable of running 13s. Seems like I should be able to take him...gets aggravating.

This kid at the go-kart track...weighs 80 lbs and drives well. I am 6'3" and 250 and I can't beat him in those cheap carts due to the weight!! AHHHH.
Speed is only a matter of money; how fast do you want to go?

For me..? Not really a racing situation. There is a kid in town who owns a ZX3 in black. Non SVT, just plain ol. Has a rice exhaust, some stickers for parts he doesnt have, and a painted yellow interior. OH and some kind of "top secret" cai, or thats just what he calls it. But I have no intention of racing. I even tried talking to him to get him to see the light (this website) and he jus laughed at me and called my ride . Best part was his friend beside him laughed and said "man, your car doesnt even have rims" to him. I just smile and walked away. But everytime I see the guy my blood boils, and I cant explain why!?

This Lambo once tried to race me. Yea thats right, I said tried... Because he didn't know about my Turbonator.

GTPs are the shiz. Easy to get good power out of an L67 engine.

I guess I really don't have any rivals at the moment, but I have a feeling that in about two weeks..no wait, not a feeling...I KNOW in about two weeks there are going to be many sad Z28s around here..LT1 or LS1, the focus is not forgiving of weakness....:D
