I was on my way to work for a night shift... I looked in my rear veiw and saw a tiberon and probe havin fun. At the time I was in my saturn VUE. I caught them at the next red and the guy in the tiberon made a comment to me about my supra sticker on the hatch of the VUE. He said something like he'd show my supra some tib pwr. I laughed and said I could possibly stay with him in the saturn
He the started to rev his engine..... the light turned green and away we went. I stayed with him in 1st... 2nd..... and walked away from him in 3rd......W.O.W. I'm kinda glad I didn't have the Supra... He would of been cryin 4 days :lol:

I raced a saturn from a rolling start in the 82. It was funny, I think the guy was really pissed off :) He spent all that money on his stereo system and grapefruit-shooter exhaust and still lost to a 21 year old car! AAHHAHHA I love it!

AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT ... I WAS DRIVING TO WORK LAST NIGHT IN MY SUPRA. lO AND BEHOLD THE SAME RICED OUT TIBURON PULLED UP ALONG SIDE OF ME.

HE WAS REVEING HIS ENGINE AT THE LIGHT..I PUT THE WINDOW DOWN AND REMINDED HIM ABOUT RACING HIM IN MY SATURN VUE. HE YELLED BACK STATING THAT HE WASN'T REALLY TRYING. HE THEN PROCEEDED TO STATE THAT THE SUPRA WOULD BE A GOOD KILL 4 HIM.


A COUPLE OF REVS OF THE BRULLEN GROWL AND WE (OR SHOULD I SAY I) WAS OFF. I'M PRETTY SURE AS I WAS SLAMMIMG INTO 3RD HE WAS STILL IN 1ST. AT THIS POINT HIS ASS WAS GRASS AND I EASED OFF THE THROTTLE JUST IN TIME 4 THE NEXT RED LIGHT.

NEEDLESS TO SAY HIS WINDOW WAS UP AND HE LOOKED IN EVERY DIRECTION EXCEPT MY WAY. :silenced:

I LOVE MY CAR.

Thats hilarious! This guy is going to have nightmares for the rest of his life now, you've mentally scarred him! I love the I can't look at you thing after you win a drag. I got that the other day when a guy in a fwd 1st gen TSI talon tried to race me from a rolling start, I can't belive I pulled past him. I thought the turbo ones were near 190hp. The best though is when they're so bloody pissed and so bloody embarresed that they actually run the next red light so they don't have sit next to you and do the look thing :rotfl:

I've driven one before exactly like that and remember it being fairly fast, but I know the turbo awd mk2s are 210hp and some magazines have recorded a 6.5 0-60 on them before. The drive train was relatively unchanged between generations but the hp did go up a little, but maybe the fwd ones come with less. Guess I'll have to research that sometime. Maybe his car is just beat too.
