Nice, good kill. Did he let off the gas, or was it straight up?

I'm not sure if you meant to imply that I don't believe killing a Viper is possible...

I know it's been done, seen it many times, with modded cars....

Or maybe he didn't want to race?


Granted, I have no idea what that Integra has in it, but, that's a Viper....
I just want to know what under his hood...
Like I said, I know it's possible, but that would take some SERIOUS mods, lotsa $$$$$.

*sigh*...when you modify something, it isnt a fair battle anymore. Put a rocket engine on a semi truck, and youll beat everyone. So what? If you have enough money, you can make anything fast. :rolleyes:

Yeeaah... i think the driver of the Viper didn't really want to race you, he probably didn't really think you were seriously gonna try to race him. Ten cylindars versus four... IMHO, no contest. He would've spanked you upwards and backwards. Nice video though. The sound of a tightly wound four-banger has a certain allure to it :D

Ive seen a clip of a Neon smoked the crap out of a Viper :eyebulge: ( at the track ) I just gotta find the site.
But I still rather have the Viper over a faster Neon :winks

mmmmmmm.........right! Just show the whole video without editing, I want to hear the guy in the video say, "You wanna race that, no thanks!" Don't believe that your turboed 4 banger's gonna walk on a viper, gotta call BS!!!:sterb:

You only run a 12:50, that viper would easily walk you. Stock those things run in the elevens. I spray my mustang and I run 12.20's at full weight with drag radials and I got walked by a viper before. He prolly wasn't racing you, or didn't bother to downshift, or was driving someone elses car

Is that what you call a race? Three-second video clips sandwiched between titles does not make a race video. And who's the hairy slug at the end? The clip that encompasses the "race" sounds like you only went through two gears and it's over. Lame. If you want to post a race video, show the whole thing. I could accomplish the same thing riding beside a Viper on a bicycle...add some sound effects...."Yeah, I smoke a Viper on my ten-speed".

You must be very proud....you've proven nothing.

Peace.

:cool:

I know it is possible for a turbo 4cyl to outperform a Viper in the straights. I will have to dig up the video of a Dodge Omni GLHS and a Viper at the drag strip. The Omni won and the crowd was jumping.
just because it is a Viper doesn't make it the fastest car on the road. There are also Videos of an Eclipse running 8's in the quarter.

here are all of the 60 foot and 1/4 mile times for vipers. im thinking this one was 97 or 98 gts, so really it would be a pretty close match in the quarter, but i think if you got a jump on him from about 75 you could of taken him. who knows...

ok... wow, i cant believe there are so many ignorant people that posted on this topic.

lets get things straight, because i have had this conversation MANY times.

THIS IS A RACE. if you know anything at all about cars, you can hear the engines of both cars. you can also hear the THREE HONKS before they take off. thats an obvious race.

THIS ISNT MY CAR. this is a 500 horsepower Turbo GSR with upgraded sleeves, etc. it weighs like 2400 lbs. as does mine.

im beginning to wonder if anybody knows what power to weight ratio is.

this integra has roughly $10,000 put into it. no body mods. no weight redux mods. nothing but engine mods.

anyone who believes imports and small displacement engines cant tear apart cobras, camaros and even vipers must have extreme ego issues. I just can't stand the superior attitudes of the "Muscle" car drivers, just because you have a bigger engine does not mean you will win, with those muscle cars, comes a lot more curb weight.

maybe you should watch the video again, this time actually pay attention, and dont let the voice of your ego be louder than the turbo on that integra.

relax Integra.
you aren't the only one that knows what you know. the others just got tired of trying to explain it. The feeble minded will learn their lesson in due time. Once they get it handed to them in a handbasket.

I used to own a turbo 4cyl. it is so cool what $12 in hardware stor parts can do to raise your boost pressure and get more horsepower. something my NA GT will never experience. :sosad:

Relax chief!! Yes imports can be fast, point taken, but this is no race video. Show 3 seconds of the integra pulling away after the viper obviously shuts it down, hardly impressive. Even if its a 500hp integra, it still wouldn't walk on a 12 second viper like the video leads you to believe!! Nobody here has said a 4 banger CAN'T be fast, so settle down. Only ignorant one I see is the one who posted the video that proves nothing. Show these 2 cars on a 1/4 strip, then you can talk ****!!! If you show a video of that maybe there wouldn't be as many non-believers!
