Me: 1986 MR2 5 speed. Mods-conical filter and advnaced timing. Stock HP 112.
Hatch: 1997 Ford Probe GT-stock. Mods: broken flow pipe before muffler. Don't laugh-sounds TOUGH. HP stock-170 I think?

WTF. I did pretty well against this car in Toyos so I figured I could put up a battle through third gear if I launched decent.

Met up with hatch tonite. 3 honk roll-left on the first honk(Lmao-A CHASE IS A RACE. My 1.6 against a V6 what do you expect). Hatch chased and caught me in 4th at about 100MPH.
Second race-raced fair this time-at 80MPH Hatch inched away-by 90MPH had a car and half. On a 5MPH roll.

No fear. I am returning in two days to Northern VA with Carolyn's GSR(advanced timing-open airbox). Hatch's ego is getting popped by a 1.8 liter car.

Can't win them all.

I know-16 sec cars battling it out:(
Of course I could use the ricer excuses of saying I can beat it on turns or my lack of cubes but then Toyo would accuse me of hiding behind cubes.
Got my ass kicked:)

They do.
But considering Hatch weights 230 pounds,had about 100 pounds of crap in the car I doubt this one could.

400 lbs should be at worst 4 tenths. Maybe high 15's?

Either way, you faired better than you should have.

Maybe. Not sure. Toyo was at least mid 15s with a good launch at a good track and he and the Probe were neck and neck back when Toyo gave a damn. Too bad Hatch denying it-lost to the Celica once on a fair race.
Both he(Hatch) and I were suprised like you(about this race). I though for sure I was toast but a lot more.

I want to really run a V6 Fiero near stock or stock. Hatch saw one line up next to me but I was in the wrong car(93 Celica with a motor on the way out) or Prince William county parkway. Can anyone hook me up? 7th/Manny know anyone local with one? Love Fieros.

And I am sure was fast as hell. I have seen LT1 pwrd ones around here.
I want to run a 2.8 stocker. Any type of engine swap one would demolish me easily.

Tell him to fondle your testes, that's way to much for a 21 year old car.

Yeah, I used to give a damn but I kept losing to Supras and FD's so I decided to hang it up. I mean if they only beat me by 10 cars or so I'd feel I at least kept up, but evidently this was not possible as it was more like 20+ cars :wtc:

So sad...

I was pretty suprised by the closeness of the races as well. I don't think the probe is running particularily well and goodness knows that Gen keeps tons of sh*t in the car at any given time.
