    When someone who has a car with as many mods and money in it as yours, races someone else with the same power ( hennesey viper, calloway corvette, etc) THAT would be a race. If you had a STOCK 996tt and you beat a c5 z06 i would be suprised. Your car does sound like a nice ride.

    950hp/AWD compared to 405hp/RWD. I hope you won...you gotta have over $100K in mods. Gee...your wheels are $5000.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    i wonder if this is how it's like when LS1's post kills on ricer boards....for the most part, you guys are givin' him kudos...but i think there is a glimer of "fuck that guy" in some of what's said? That's kinda how i feel...

    he should race one of those vipers from heffner's. he specializes in twin turbo setups for them. he just recently moved his business to florida but when he was still in maryland my car was dynoed at his shop. when i was there a viper on the dyno put down 1100 to the wheels and they weren't even done with it that would be a bad ass race and that has to be one bad ass car stock let alone with all the mods he has done.

    I must be the only guy here that isn't very impressed. The 996 is a very nice car. And it's great that you doubled your hp with the mods, no doubt that you are a car guy.

    Put twin-turbos on the that 2002 Z06, there's a fair race. Run the Porsche in question against a Hennessy Viper or the Lingenfelter twin-turbo Z06, that's a fair race. Stock for Stock, the twin turbo 996 is nearly matched to the C5 Z06.

    If a guy's car with 950hp beats a car with 405hp, it's not that impressive, it's expected.....and then to brag about it. The WS6 will put buslenths on a V6 Mustang...so should I go to the Mustang sites and brag? What's the point?

    Isn't it ironic that, whenever someone posts a kill, someone else invariably points out that some other car is faster and "there is always someone out there faster than you." I am well aware of the 1200rwhp TT Vipers, as well as the dual 300 shot Novas, etc. Ive seen several 8-9 second cars racing on the street. I never stated, or even implied, that my car is the fastest car on the road. To the contrary, I merely posted a story of one particular race and, when people subsequently asked about my mods, I responded.

    Nevertheless, thanks for the sage advice.

    First, I never suggested that the outcome of the race was "impressive." To the contrary, I expressly stated that it was "expected."

    Second, I never "bragged" about the outcome, but rather, merely shared a story of an unexpected street encounter.

    "Whats the point" you ask? I do not get many opportunities to run my car, as very few cars will run me, and even fewer are worth running. I wish I would encounter more capable cars on the road, but it rarely happens. Thus, I run what is brung at me. When a reasonably fast car challenges me (recall that I did not challenge him) and we run, a street encounter has occurred. Nothing more, nothing less. It may not be the end all, be all, greatest street encounter ever, but is was a street encounter all the same. I shared the encounter here because this is an LS1 forum and I have been a member here since 2002 (notwithstanding my new membership status due to my prior membership being lost). Had it been a Lambo or Ferrari, I would not have posted the story here, just as I did not post this story on supraforums.com. As previously stated, I didn't "brag" about the outcome, nor suggest that it was "impressive." Rather, in a respectful tone, I merely shared a street encounter with a car that challeneged me and the "expected" outcome.

    There has never been a requirement here for posting kill stories that the two cars be evenly matched and, if you read through the kill stories, many involve cars of substantially different caliber. Thus, your suggestion that my story is not worthy of sharing is without precedent or merit. Had I beat my chest about the outcome and/or denigrated the other car, you might have grounds to criticize me. However, given that I merely shared an isolated street encounter in a respectful tone, noting that the outcome was "expected," your commentary is unwarranted.

    What do you expect when you post beating a Vette on a Vette site. Obviously looking for abuse!

    Now I get it. I should only post stories here when I lose to a Vette. If I beat a Vette, I should keep my mouth shut and avoid ruffling feathers.

    I'm confident that this will merely prompt more negative commentary, but given the repeated requests, here are the pics:

    Wow bro...that's a very nice car...many codos to you. Just ignore some of the people here...sometimes the comments some of them say are very "ricer"ish. 996TTx50 is well aware,as most people are, that there's always someone faster...especially when the car you bring up isn't yours. Phantom racing is gay.."yea you beat that civic..but this TT supra I saw would smoke you"....sound familiar huh?

    It was a clean kill and well deserved IMO.
