Im like why do you want to race me, they all say cause the T/A is overrated, then i rape them and say still think so. None of them belive my car is near stock when i beat them hard. I beat some kid in a supra by 3 cars he said nice supercharger he claimed he heard a whine. I have jsut headers and exhaust maybe my car is breaking if people are hearing whines lol.

    I even had this kid with a evo telling me how he can smoke me i took him by 1 to 2 car lengths, funny thing is he kept telling me that his little 2.4liter turbo could take me i was like your car has a 2.0 liter. So he popped the hood i was right lol he doesnt even know his engine.
    I get the same shit. I have everyone thinking they can take my car. Mustangs, Trucks, Ricers, you name it. To this day, I've had my car like 2 1/2 Months. The ONLY and I mean only cars that have ever beat me are:

    1 Mustang, was an 03 Cobra, FAR FAR FAR from stock, had a super charger, NOS, Heads, Cam, all kinds of shit. Wasn't beat by that much really, prolly 4 cars.

    2 diff vipers, I knew I lost before we took off, I just wanted to see how fast they really were.

    A couple Vettes, 1 Z06.

    last is an EVO 9, he was fairly modded. Bigger turbo, head work, and a few other things.

    Other than those I have dominated just about everything else (I Race alot too) and people still don't show enough respect IMO. In another 8-10 Months, most that have beaten me will lose to me. These cars are some of the baddest machines made for the price. Sure the GTO is quicker, but not nearly as sexy. Bottom line is, We bad and we know it, I like being under estimated, makes it that much sweeter when I stomp their ass and they ask what mods I got. Then I get to tell em I got an Air box, cat-back and thats damn near it. They hardly ever believe me though.

    Our cars are highly underrated, kids who have weak ass cars tell me they can take me all the time. Some kid with a 1988 supra with just an intake and exhaust said he could take me. I have an 87 with cams, rebuilt motor and a 500hp turbo the car makes 432rwhp and it only takes my T/A by 3 cars. Mainly cause it weighs 3800 pounds lol. I have even had some kid with the nismo sentra it was stock he said he can hang with me. Those run 15s, i dont even wanna race these kids but i feel i must so that they will someday see the light at the end of the American Muscle tunnel.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    it just makes me wonder when the lapse happened that kids said "man, i hope i can own a trans am one day" to "dayum, my civic is da bomb!" Honestly, all through highschool and college my sites were set on owning a trans am-nothing, not another car intrested me like they did. During college, one of my HS friends went "ricer" and showed me his engine-i was no gear head at the time, but i said "umm, don't you need a v8 to be fast?"

    I was at a cruise-in yesterday with my T/A. Two high schoolers asked if that's a 6.
    "No it's an 8. An LS1"
    "What's the displacement?"
    "346 cubic inch."
    They look at me like I just grew a third eye. What can I say, I'm old school.

    AMERICAN MUSCLE is all I gotta say. NO ONE makes power like we do, especially when it comes to an LS1.

    And you are right, I believe that GM is grossly underated. Some of the best, most reliable cars I've owned were GM. I had Jeep Grand Cherokee and an Acura TL. Both of those cars were junk and I had more problems than all of my gm cars combined!

    LoL. People ask me all the time whats under the hood. I say LS1. They are like "whats that?". Makes me laugh so hard. I'm not gonna bash on ricers too much, some of those cars are quite impressive for what they are. I dig some of their styles and the fact they can pull great amounts of horsepower out of such a tiny little engine. But not all ricers are worth anything. IMO, if its not a Supra, EVO, Skyline, STi, 350Z, Silvia, or GSX Eclipse, its not worth my time. I'd own any one of those cars and enjoy it, but I wouldn't trade my T/A for it, or anything other than a new Vette.

    The GSX eclipse is also a waste of time, they need complete motor rebuild to suppost any kind of boost other than stock. The cams are horribly unbalanced, people up the boost to like 19 or 20psi and snap cams left and right.

    Me and my friend tony tried to build one, BAD IDEA so then we just built a supra lol.

    Overrated. Overrated. Overrated. My god I'm tired of hearing people say that about LS1s..

    "LS1s are so overrated.. they aren't really that good." put another chalk mark on the board for LS1 owners. This latest comment was to me from a SATURN DRIVER today (2.4 n/a 4 banger). "I am going to put 4 12" subs in the back and take out the seats and turbo it, then it will be running 12's easy." Why oh why..
