On my way home from work tonight I was driving normally until this hot ass chick with her little sister in an 03 Grand Am SE (no plastic side body molding) pulled up beside me and took off. so I dropped a gear to stay with her but then decided it wasn't worth it... next thing I knew there was this pre-97 Grand Prix SE playin around with her on the road, swerving back and forth in the lanes... So i gun it and catch up to them both and as we pull up to the light i'm on the left, the GP is in the middle and the GA is on the right. The light turns green, I rev to 2500 and drop the clutch. ran through 1st and slammed it into second (one of these days i'm gonna blow the gears out the bottom of the tranny doin this) and I look back to see I got roughly 2 or so car lengths on the GP, and the GA is slightly behind me. We pulled up to the next light, same thing. 2500 and drop the clutch. I completely, utterly destroyed that GP. to me that would be an embarassment to calling that car a V6, but once again the Grand Am is right with me. This isn't anywhere near any traffic so we played around until I had had enough, which was at about 80 mph, which also is about the time we both layed off the throttle and slowed down for the little curve.

Even when I was in low 2nd gear, I would gain from the GP like craziness Those cars are complete crap in racing, which really wasn't what it was meant to do anyway :p

I love my car so damn much. Even though a late model V6 Stang ate me numerous times a few weeks ago. :D

I'd never try to race a supercharged 3.8, let alone an N/A one. A Chevy 350 powered TA...I've "raced" one before, she wasn't trying at all...but if she was...hell no lol

I pretty much knew I had no chance against that Stang though, but I tried anyway. :lol:

Why is he full of crap? Is it impossible for a GT Escort to keep up
with a new Grand Am? Grand ams with the v-6 may be a hair faster
but it wont leave no Escort GT. 8O

Right. I wasted 10 minutes of my time to make up stuff.

So why exactly am I full of crap? If you're gonna say something like that, say something else to back it up.

G Am must have had the 3.8 and the GP probably had the small one. 3.4 I think. the 3.8 in a GP would own an excort gt I think... I have driven a new one quite a few times and must say it is ALOT faster than my mx-3 was.

Grand Am's have the 3.4 V-6 and the Grand Prix has the 3.8.

The only way a second gen (that runs fine), Escort Gt (five speed),

will get beat is by the GTP with the supercharger. 8)

everyone knows that reving a escort to 2500 rpms is like slow to medium take off speed :!: to get a good pull your true power doesn' t kick in till around 3400 rpms

and as for racing the two cars with the v-6 engines, it doesn't a genius to tell you 2 more pistons = faster car. those grand-ams are very fast cars try driving 1

and i should say that you might be right, you might have betten them in a race. just next time, let them know that you are racing them

that may very well be the most ignorant comment i have ever read.

you, sir, are an idiot, and should not be allowed to drive a motorized vehicle of any kind. :tard:

to think that a car with a v-6 is faster than a car with a 4-cyl is absolutely one of the most ridiculous things you could possibly say. Honestly, i can't even believe i'm wasting my time replying to this.

My escort GT (which is a 4 cyl) is faster than probably 75% of every vehicle ever produced with a v-8, let alone a v-6. My thunderbird, with a 4cyl, before i ripped it down for the rebuild, ran a mid 15 in close to stock form. That's a 3400 lb. car. It's top speed was around 155. You're telling me that i would lose to every v-6 or v-8 i ever tried to race because i'm lacking cylinders?

just as an example -
98 grand am - v6 - 16.5 @ 84mph
98 wrx sti - 4cyl turbo - 12.8 @ 106mph
well sure, that's cheating because he has a turbo.
98 integra type r - 4cyl n/a - 15.2 @ 89mph

grand am's are not fast. to be quite honest, they're some of the slowest cars pontiac has EVER made. It's like telling me that i'd lose to a 3.8 taurus because it's engine is over twice the size of mine.

on a closing note, you need to read a book and figure out how a car works before you start calling people out. you go keep losing the the 17-second grand ams, but please don't call people who actually know what they're talking about liars. go put on your phat spoiler and save up for your NAAWWWZZZ, but leave the real car guys alone. :)

you worthless f*ck.

james - :) good kill man.. it must be the rust (i tell people the rust is for weight reduction)
have you got maximum boost yet? check the library if you don't have the cash.. they might have it..

edit - grand am's have never been offerend with a 3.8. their engines have ranged from 2.3's to 3.4's. just fyi. :D

I drove a 94 Grand Prix SE for a couple years and I can tell ya now, they're an easy kill.

They've got great acceleration if you mash the gas at the right spot, but it's ass from a stop.

So... just because I had a slow to medium take off, I couldn't have possibly taken them? What you're saying is that a GP or GA will have an extremely fast wheel chirping start all the time?? I see. Ok I change my story. I lost to both of them. :roll:
The engine does rev, I didn't hold it at 2500 rpms the entire race...I went all the way to the 7000 rpm mark and slammed it into second. If you don't believe me, whatever. I've beaten faster cars than a GP.

LMAO this has got to be by far the funniest sentence ever written. Just because it has a V6 doesn't mean it was BUILT to race. Grand Am SE's could be considered "family cars." You want some examples of just how rediculous that statement is??

2001 Honda S2000: 2.0L N/A w/ 246 hp 169 lb ft torque: 0-60 time of 6.0.

1997-2003 GP GTP 3.8L Supercharged engine w/ 240 hp, 280 lb ft torque: 0-60 time of 6.6.

So the GTP has got a 1.8L 2 piston advantage, plus it's got a supercharger, and it still wouldn't beat an S2000 stock for stock. Why? weight my friend. Just because you put a bigger engine in a car doesn't make it necessarily faster. GPs and GAs have more weight to tow than any EGT has.

Good point. too bad they did, they were already racing each other. I just joined in the mix.

Pre 97 GPs had 3.4s in them, also the pre 97 GTP had a supercharged 3.4. It wasn't until 1997 that the GP (including the GTP) was redesigned and upgraded to the 3.8.

I'm not too sure about the GAs though, but what I do know for a fact is it has a 3.4 with 170-175 hp. (SE model)

i tried taking on my friends '00 GA se the ~170hp one, but it was a skewed race since it was quite rainy and the grand am had much better traction control than my spinning 5sp tranny. still only had about 4 car lengths on my LX. GA's are quite a nice car to drive though, but definitally not for racin'.

My buddy has a Grand am `99 and I used to SMOKE him with my 89’ Eagle premier 3.0L Mitsubishi…

Mmmmmmm I loved that engine…

.. The other night one of the guys I work with saw me touring home, after I took every of from the intersection...
played around with him doing 150km/h ... then I Slaughtered him once I dropped the throttle all the way to 180km/h.....

He was driving a Mazada protege ...old school one..
