    Oh shut up, they are nice trucks, but once again as i stated before a truck, your never gonna be the fastest on the street and your never gonna be the best for offroading, i know poeple dont by them to go off road but thats what i buy trucks for. SCREW LIGHTNINGS, no matter how much power you make you still weigh 4k+ and i personally think ford makes ugly trucks, we were on the freeway in my friends 89 240sx, wit ha 75shot on it, ran a 14.6, next a lightning that had atleast exhaust doin about 80 they both went and up to 120 we pulled 2 cars in a stock 240sx with jsut a 75shot lol. Im jsut saying a 1200 dollar car with a 300 dollar dry shot beating a 20k truck

    You should bring your buddies 240sx down to Rt 66 raceway in IL and you'll see it lose down the 1/4 to a stock Lightning no problem. The Lightning driver probably didn't want to waste his time or gas on racing you and your buddy.

    I'm sure you have been racing since you were in diapers. So you can only beat it on the highway, if I'm hearing you correctly.

    1/4 mile=you loose
    SCCA road race=you loose
    20mph roll=you loose
    stop and go traffic=you loose
    80mph to 120=you win??

    so you can gain 40mph faster in that range and you think you have something. We can clearly see which vehicle is more universal and truly able to race and hold it's own in a competition. Keep spraying the 240sx in hopes to have some kill stories. good luck

    Lol that was his 240sx bone stock, only mods were we put a 5 speed and too kout the auto and a 75shot, my T/A ran a 12.8 so im sure i could have taken it, my supra ran low 11s some im sure that could have taken it. My 1990 newyorke probably would have lost. Lol so 1 of my cars would loose. All i was trying to say is a car we bought for 1200, put 400 in tranny parts and a put a 75shot on about 300 bucks. Some other money for misc parts and fluids about 2 grand in all, too ka 20k+ truck with a 400dolalr exahust atleast. 2000k compared to just over 20k and he lost.

    That doesn't mean a Lightning is a piece of crap like you implied, screw lightnings as you put it. Sorry to let you know, but your buddies 2K 240sx worth probably 1K is nothing compared to a Lightning. The Lightning will attract the women while you drool in awe from the 240sx. I rest my case.

    wait a minute, you should be praising a 4000+ pound TRUCK that runs 13s, not condemning it.

    looks are subjective, and your OPINION on if its a good deal or not is too. the fact remains that they can lay waste to CARS alot lighter than themselves and with an auto trans.

    240s are weak and if he did win, it wasnt because his car was superior, it was because it probably doesnt weigh 3000 pounds and it probably wasnt an auto. the hit of nitrous just put it over the edge, respectively.

    from a dig the 240 would be dust. get the lightning into the powerband in second and a roll would be in its favor too (i would like to think).

    not ripping you just mediating....or playing devils advocate

    Stock for stock they run the same exact times as our cars. You have some stuff that should put yourself ahead of the game alil. And since they already come w/ a blower, they can be made fast very very easy. I have never come across a stock Lightning, not even the used ones at the dealerships.
