    grand nationals are just nasty in general, i know 2 people with them, one of them left a burnout about 200' long, he has smoked wrx's, a sti, a few mustangs. My other buddy has one completly restored, looks amazing

    ..he should have had you way before 100mph.....sounds like his motor's a bit weak....do a p/i swap and you take him the way he stands now.

    I was going to say the same, those nationals are pretty quick in the 1/4

    i went for a ride in it..it didnt feel all that fast..i dunno ..its stock so its supposed to have 245 hp even though that may be underrated...there was also the fact that my fuzion zr1s will grip from a stop without even a chirp and he was spinning with the crappy yokahamas....thats probably why it took so long for him to catch me.

    I am not a fan of the Grand Nationals, but I have allot of respect for them. I had my butt whipped by those things on many occasions back in the day.
