i was on my way to work in Fairfax County Parkway....this red lightning came up to me and looked over.....i smiled and the truck looks nice and clean. We were doin 60 MPH but slow down to 40 MPH and i dump into 2 gear and dip. We were even for like 3 seconds and then i started pullin on him slowly. We shut down at 5th gear with me beatin him. He was cool. Gave me the thumbs up and left...i have seen quick Lightnings and i dont know what he had but it was quick...Whats the spec on them?

:bs:

what car do you have?

Lightnings make 380hp and 380 lb-ft of torque and they are supercharged so there is no way you beat one. he was just playing around with you.

yes he would have to be F/I with some mods on top of that to beat a lightning.

his story might be likely because the lighning isnt as effiecient off of a 40mph roll because it dosent drop into the low gear. When my friend raced a lightning in his Mustang gt they raced off a 40 and my friend pulled a fender. Then he said the car isnt very good 0ff of 40 so they went off a 20 and he pulled about 2 cars from that roll. So maybe it was just the roll they went off of that hurt the lightning. Just some speculation from past experiences

but a mustang GT is very different to a celica GTS.

He was toying with you or it wasnt a lightning. an SVT lightning can run mid 13's. Also has great topend for a truck.

Georgie put a smack down on me.......

My friend had a Lighning. He ran mid to low 13's. And when he would take the O/D off he would run 12's.

He took out a modded M3 and put about 4 car lengths on it by 80mph with the O/D still on.

Dont think he was really racing you.

with 7th's mods from a troll he has a shot at those cars. That was more due to THEM than him. Dont over glorify teh celica.

I pulled on an evo from a roll, lt1 z28, wrx with mods from a stop, and a gsr hatch. All should have been faster than me but werent. Drivers play a big roll in racing. I know the celica is not faster than some of the cars i have beaten but sometimes wierd things can happen. Also all those races were set up off a stop so i know they were racing. I have since lost to the evo (badly), Wrx, and the hatch when they learned to drive better. Havnt seen the Camaro again.

So i say good kill there is no way of telling the numerous factors to take into account. Maybe his truck wasnt even running right. Just too many factors to base in. Good kill

I wouldn't be suprised at all if it was a ricer domestic owner in a f150 with lightning badges that you raced.

That's what I am thinking, FAKE. Some people will go to great lengths for people to think their cars are fast.
