ok time to add new kills. a honda accord, honda delsol. i tried a corvette and a crotch rocket, but the dam things are just to fast. but i think if i had a turbo i could have killed the corvette. it was an older one. i was surprised at how i kept up with him durring take off, he was only gaining distense slowly. Dam i want turbo. just think if i had turbo and nos, oh the possibilities.
This past weekend this jeep wrangler pulls up next to me and I hear, "wanna race" now realize this is downtown by the courthouse where everyone cruises and all the cops SIT.
So I´m pulling away at green and because I have HUGE vac leaks it dies on me when I´m in low revs....as I start to pull through first I smoke past him. Had to let it blow off right next to him too...but I dont think he was smart enough to figure out what a turbo sounded like.
Not too big of a kill, but i guess it´ll do for now! So im cruising down the interstate in my 1.8
(rhym not intended) and i noticed this car comin up fast behind me so i dropped from 5th to 4th and kept the rpm´s steady. I take a look to the right and it´s some dork boy in a first gen TSI Talon. Typical shiny muff, tach, and various gauges(probably don´t even work) he lets off so i can hear it queef and then i drop from 4th -3rd and hit it. To his surprise i was gone, then he started gaining on me, i know he was tryin cause now im doin 80mph and he hasn´t caught up . I slow down and then we go again, to make things short, i was in 5th and a half fender ahead then he let off and my car nose dived!
Doh!! The dreaded fuel pump cut out. I know i was over a hundred but don´t know exact. what cause i had that FAST AND THE FURIOUS tunnel vision thing goin on.
Anyways, sorry to take up so much space, just got caught in the moment!!!!
96´EGT, Tokicos, power core cat, straight thru exhaust exits in center of bumper like the mini(only bigger
there are alot of tsi talons with messed up transmissions. i have a member in my car club that has one, and it is so slow, sorry to him but, he thinks its the ecu but i tell him its the transmission all togeather. be care ful with those jeeps, if they lock in on a rainy day, they will beat, at least take off. i raced a fellow escort and i spun all the way threw 4th gear, or third i cant remember, but eather way on rainy days i cant get traction. oh yea i killed a ford truck.
I got the pleasure of driving an 87 VW Jetta GL yesterday...
I loved the handling. After going from a wagon to a sedan the difference was like night and day. I could weave around like a cat and the steering was smooth and precise. Really nice. The pedals were way high up compared to what I´m used to.
Anyway, it was nice, but to be honest, it wasn´t as fast as my LX wagon. The throttle response on it is really nice (and even better if I will install a 1st gen GT TB) and it really smokes to be honest. I´m really happy with my escort, and when I get enough moola, I´ll buy an EGT! woot!
