that is hilarious!


my "rival" is this fool i work w...he has an 02 cavalier z22/24 whatever its the ecotec w 150 hp and we were talking because ppl at our job think its uber fast etc...so i ask him whats been done to it and he tells me intake and motor mounts...then he shows off his big ol 17" rims, body kit, and 2 15" subs in the back w a scratched to s**t plexiglass cover so you can see them bumping...anyways so im like ok so the cai adds maybe 10 hp at the crank...and he jumped down my throat cause i didnt mention the mounts...hes like "they add tq...do you even know HOW an engine works?!?!" at this point i just started to laugh, but he wouldnt let it go and proceeded to tell me how he ran 15.1 at the track w the car exactly how it is now (everything in it)...i later find out the car was stripped no subs, spare, carpets, etc, he was running drag radials...and it wasnt even him that drove it to 15.1...everytime i see him i want to beat him w whatever blunt object is at hand! id race him but i never have time to make it up to the track and he doesnt want to race me on the street

OMFG i hate him!

My REAL rival, would have to be a Cobalt SS Supercharged that lives down the street from me. Some snot nosed kid that thinks he's bad because he has a SC in that POS. It's okay though. Once I get a SC or turbo, he's ED!

mine would have to be my friends VR6 jetta. He has bad syncros and i still cant beat him. I did beat him off the line once even though he had 3 people in his car. I will one day crush him.

Oh Boy!! you guys are going to have a kick out of this one.. My rival that i just found out is a Kid in a 90's Civic with 15Psi of Boost, but get this he don't have a turbo in the car. Base on what my friend told me he has a boost gauge, CAI and a Tomato Fart Can as muffler and he claims he's car is doing 15PSI of boost.... Now I don't understand how in the Hell you get 15PSI of boost without Turbo. And i ask my friend how old is this kid, he reply: 23 years old. So we might race next weekend on the 1/4 mile track. This is going to be interesting.

90's Civic 15PSI with n/a VS 01 Turbo ZX3

I think i'm going to loose! hahahaha!!!!

I'm guessing, but even if he has a supercharger,, can you do 15psi on supercharger?? and i don't think he has a supercharger neither, but i'll find out next weekend if he wants to race.

I would say that I don't have a rival. But I hate it when a Ferrari, Porsche, or Masserati are going just under the speed limit. Trust me it happens all the time where I live. Then theres the BMW M3 or Audi S4/S6 on the highway thats going 65. I feel insulted that I am passing them up. Although I did catch a 3 series off gaurd one day on an on ramp. He was putzing along, and so I took the second lane to pass, and he gunned it, and we ran about even until the end of the ramp.

My dream car from the time I knew what a car was, was the 911, and it still is. it always just seems like its barely out of my grasp. I really don't care about the year either, I just can't ever seem to get a hold of one. It will happen one day. I would be happy to just drive one around atrack for a day, well then I would probably want one even more.
