since i bought my 02 a few weeks ago i get more people wanting to race than i had in a year with my dakota. had a rice burner pull next to me friday , i knew it was on but i let him take the first shot anyway, he launched ahead half a car, i mashed it and we went side by side till i went into third and started walking away. dont know what he had. might of been a honda or something simmilar. it was all tricked out and way too loud, lol.
I had a 2004 or 2005 Silverado SS beat me on launch. When I was doing close to 60 MPH, he looked back and laughed at me. When I passed him up at around 80 MPH, I looked over and he wasn't laughing anymore. I shut it down at about 120, and he did the typical flyby.
I had a little toyota MR2 hang with me. I know he had work, but not sure what. Raced him twice, both very short. 1st from a 30 roll i walked him, but the second was froma 50 roll and i forgot to turn my o/d off and he was right with me...quick little car (this was before the 3.73's)
yeah i was thinking the same thing. theres a guy around my town with a 95 tsi turns out we met on the wrong terms because i was hitting on his girlfriend and he got mad so im like let our cars do the talking. i knew what he was driving because i seen him around at stores and things but i never knew that he was going out with this girl.. soo anyways hes like fine, he follows me back to my house and i open the garage start my car up and he's like damn.. nevermind and he just takes off and leaves
I'm not talking about FM2K's GT in general, I am saying that a Eagle Talon TSI can give a stock mustang GT, or equally modified mustang, a run for it's money, of course the mustang will win from a stop because of the difference in torque, but from a roll, it may be another story. A v6 would stand no chance unless it is a s197, and is modified more than the Talon/DSM.
Mabey it will win, I know we raced a stock 5.0 in my cousin's bone stock 91 Mitsubishi Galant vr4(exact same drivetrain as 6bolt 1g dsms) and we walked the mustang pretty badly. Guy even come by our house the next day to see what the deal was with the Galant. And like I said, my 93 Talon I had was stock with 3"DP and 2.5" exhaust, MBC at 16psi, and I ran my dad's capri on the highway he had 306 with machined(ported to match gaskets, and polished)66 heads, bcam, converted to roller, shorty headers, off road h-pipe, 2 chambers with turndowns, 3.73s we raced from about a 60 roll, by around 100 I had him by a fender, when we shut it down. It was a close race, when I would shift he would pull, but then after boost lag was gone, I would pull on him pretty hard. Take some run down dsm that is stock or low boost and put it up against a mustang from a stand still, the talon will get walked.
Watch these videos, they help to understand what I am saying. Both videos are of the same cars.
when i was stock i had a Trail Blazer SS almost beat me from a 50 mph roll.........i have had a few trucks almost beat me (highly modded)....and many, MANY cars have beat me at the drag strip......raced a few cameros, an LS1 will usually beat me, but i love smoking ole' LT1 cars......i have only beat a few stock LS1 cars.
