    It's really frustrating to watch that shit. Like the Special Olympics and the WNBA, import racing is a compromised version of something relevant.

    Never seen it in person. I once watched sportsman import drag racing and witnessed 30+ consecutive Hondas, Mitsus, and 240sxs run 13s, 14s, 15s, and 16s. In the pits, most of them said they ran 11s. :ugh2:

    Vipers are welcome. No V12 owner would risk his diff or axles at a drag strip.

    We're discussing drag racing here, fuck. Street cars are a different story.

    :rofl:

    Like at Supras Invade Las Vegas, where I saw 600-800 rwhp Supras run 13s and 14s, and lose to 500 hp V8s with real world power bands? Yeah, I'm tired of seeing that shit.

    That's funny because I went to the track last weekend (grew out of this shit, but went with friends). It was mostly American cars. I'd say 60% of them had issues and the rest were shit slow.

    Makes me wish I still had my Honda, 11.2 @ 128 > you.

    No interior? Cheater trailing wheels? Runs 11s 1/10 runs? Yes, you own me.

    torque curve is flatter
    power = torque
    distance/time = hp

    Full interior, daily driven, mint condition inside and out. I don't know what cheater training wheels are :ugh2:

    You're obviously an ignorant redneck. I can respect just about any vehicle for what it is, if it's done right. You're just like all the other rednecks at the track that day :ugh2:

    Racing in a straight line is fucking :greddy2: anyway.
