Hey everyone, my buddy has a 1990 Plymouth laser. 2.0L FWD. He has exhaust, clutch, some other stuff. He has a shot of nitrous (hasn't told me what shot it is) but by the looks of it it's about a 50-75. He said on the spray he could run my 97 GT. He said it's all ready to go, but his bro, also my buddy, said it's not ready for shyt. He also has stock tires all around. How does he plan to hook?

I think my best bet is to just run him, and get it on video. His car is nice and all, very cleanly modded and setup, but I don't think he stands much of a chance with or without the spray. On this respect, by no means am I saying my car is a speed demon (at least not yet anyway).


My stang has clutch, 2/3 exhaust (H pipe and mufflers), suspension, new tires, air silencer removed, more torque.... lol

I don't race much I just thought I'd start a discussion about it and see where it goes


Gotta go to school for now

Peace


George

you racing at the track or on the street? he'll probably take you either way, just want to make sure youre racing responsibly ;)

your car is heavy and slow (face it, it's a 97), you "might" get a low 15 in the 1/4 considering you only have one "real" mod, the exhaust :dunno: i got my ass handed to me by a little stock turbo AWD DSM my first time out... looked like shit but DAMN IT WAS FAST!!

hmm. He's the non turbo front wheel drive tho... and i'm talkin on the street lol probably on some empty farm road

Dang, well it's one of those races we won't know of until we do it.

Man I really wanna pull my motor and put something in it that at least makes this car moderately quick instead of a slug.


The thing is though I am unaware if he can really spray, because it's all a ghettoed setup and he says it's a full bottle ready to go but half the stuff isn't even hooked up.

I think it will depend on how good he can drive. If he completely sucks you will take him. If he is decent and gets traction quick enough he might be able to reel ya in. Kinda hard to tell though. I had a 93 Tsi before my stang and some of those guys were pretty quick with barely anything and then others were dogs with a lot of mods. Him having FWD is going to help you a lot though.

haha this thread exploded lol. Yeah my engine is sick, but not performance wise. It's burnin oil but the compression is still good... so it still hauls a$$ with a blue haze lol. It's loving the 10/40 with additive tho.


Yeah, he clearly has the FWD NON TURBO DSM. Nice car an dall, see I figured if he really was spraying, given each of our drawbacks we'd run dead even, but if he wasn't spraying he'd be dead.


BTW I just found out today that he bought one of the first "Mazda 6s" or whatever? Whatever the new 270 horse AWD turbo mazda? THat car would kill me lol.

His car WAS sick as hell until he got T boned in it. Since then he's been fixing and modding it at once, and that's not a good combo.


Man I can't wait to do my engine. I'm really wanting to forge it, and cam it. Run N/A like that until I can afford a blower. I know it will be fast as heck once everything is setup properly.

Haha I know a TSi is turbo i had one. I didnt even notice it was just a plain laser. Im just used to seeing most of the people who mod them mod the turbo ones for obvious reasons. Now that I have been shown its a non turbo I wouldnt think he could take you but I could be wrong.

if he sprays it may be dead even, if not I'm pretty sure i"ve got him. This car used to be mint, but ummm if you saw it, it's seen much better days


It'll be one of those B.S. races we get on video for everyone to laugh at

hehe the race wil have to be postponed. See we got hit hard with snow in my town and my buddy's town which is about 30 miles west. We'd both have no traction... FWD and RWD lol.
