it was my really cocky friend who thinks his stock boost 300zx with cams will kill any 4 banger, so im like aight lets roll!

we go out to this 1/4 road near our school, i give 3 honks, launch and 3.5k and im on my way, i got a half car from the start and just slowly pulled away after that, ended up like 2-2.5 cars ahead at the end of the race, he tried to make excuses that his waste gate came off, but everyone there heard his turbo and bov going off so thats a bunch of BS, first kill since i got my car running right, hurray for me!...didnt even need to use my bottle

I like 'em too, very nice to look at. I dunno about the no intercooler thing on a turbo car, but hey, gotta learn somewhere, eh? Friend of mine's got a '79 280z (or was it a 240z that year?), very sweet ride for only $900 :thumbup:. They kinda have the same problem as me. You say something about killing a 300zx and everyone automatically assumes "Oh, Fairlady Z!". And then you read something like Mike Morris' recent post about his Supra, and you get people thinking mkIV TT right away. Guess that's not too bad though, lets me just say "Supra" when people ask me what kinda car I got.

I wasnt talking about you racing cars out of your league. I was talking about your READING COMPREHENSION. It was already pointed out that is was not a Twin Turbo it was an '88 single turbo.

You are DUMB
