Well, if you mean it like whats my Elenor, it would have to be this guy that rides around town in this later model Z-28, white, with some mods. The guy looks like he is probably my age (mid-30's) and have run across him several times. Everytime we meet, he gets me because i will miss second every single time. I almost never miss a gear, but against him, everytime. Ill jump him about 1/2 a car and miss second and its over from there.lol. Pleanty of wins and some losses, but this one i cant figure out, every.....stinking.....time, lol.

Nah, he'll just have to make it through the gears faster then. My "rival" is this souped-up Geo Metro that has the 6" can on the end and enough stickers to make me think it goes fast as all hell. Those 13" wheels are bad ass too. Real monster there! [paranoid]

I have a very aggravatingly fast Mini Cooper S that keeps beating me in G Stock at the autocross, but then again he's got R-comps. I figure if I am within 1-2 seconds of his best time that I actually drove with more skill...

There is this 2006 Sonic Blue ZX3 that hangs around this area. I don't know who drives it, but he thinks he's so badass. He's got tint, a FocusSport exhaust, and a timing chain from the looks of it. LOL

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.

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!?

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
