    It'll run in the 15's. Check 3si.org forums for more info than you can shake a stick at. If you're all about power, get the VR-4... but warning lol... you better know your shit about cars and turbos.

    The VR4's are pretty quick but the SL's are slooooow. They weigh like 3800lbs.

    How slow would be a better question... since they weigh about 14,000 lbs

    more like 3260 lbs and i have timeslips of my fat bitch at the track 15.5 completely stock with bald ass tires. Great driver it would make low 15's. Vr4's are in the 13's stock. http://www.team3s.com/FAQ-Specs1.htm

    I need to sell my car tired of fwd :(

    btw if your looking into getting it, they are good cars like most when properly maintained. The 99 your looking at has the 99 front bumper and headlights which are the more desired body style by most everyone on 3si.org. The downfall to the car is it being FWD and having no traction what so ever and the fact that its the little bitch sister to the vr4.

    my base model ran 15.5 and there have been n/a stock freak 3s's that have made it into the 14's. But you wont make that pass, you will run about what I did, I consider myself and average to good driver with my car running up to par with those times.

    They make lots of models:
    sohc n/a = 16-17 sec car (depending on tranny)
    dohc n/a = 15-16 second car
    vr4's/tt's = 13's to low 14 second car

    all of these of course depending on the driver

    Sounds like you know a whole lot about those cars. The model that weights 3800lb sports 320hp. It weights that much because of the goodies. TT,AWD, AWS, Active (Aero/Exhaust/Suspension).

    No BRG for me this year, work is going to whoop my ass this summer. I plan to bring the bike up there next year tho:) The gap should be a blast on it.

    3000vr-4- yeah i have the slow ass dohc but works for me, I dont get beat by most civics,integras,preludes unless something is majorly done. Shit i raced a civic hb with a b18 swap i/h/e and supposidly cam gears and some other shit from a roll on the highway with 2 other ppl in my car and still pulled.
