    Z/28 Gets Smoked...(Literally)

    Don't worry, I didn't loose.

    I'm going down Rt. 37 (Hi EE1983)... Pull behind a red convertible 5.0 w/ a big roll bar on the back & he looks in his rearview and starts smiling and revving. He pulls away alittle quickly and BAM, a big cloud of smoke dumps out of the back of his pipes. So we both roll up to the next light and his cars smoking & me and my friend are coughing, now I'm gettin alil aggravated. So the light turns green and he punches it. Big clouds of black smoke at every shift. I pause, think, screw it, I hit it! He was upto 50mph, I flew past him in the left at 75mph and my friend was almost in tears, he laughed so hard. After we calmed down at the next light, my friend tells me "The look on the guys face was priceless, the guy mouthed WHOOAAAA!!!". And thus another kill story is born.

    Nice mauling...

    Looks like his smoke screen tactic didn't work.

    You are doing better than me, the only kills I can post about my car is the property tax/insurance killing my wallet, and I just got a letter in the mail from NC saying I didn't get my car inspected on time, and to pay 250 BONES!!!

    GD, I can't get a break. I ain't been able to drive the car since December, and now I get a fine for not towing it to the inspection station, to GET A CAR INSPECTED I CAN'T DRIVE.

    Weather was nice, just thought I'd take a cruise man, I'm lookin into getting a ZX-10R for the summer, so I hit the Kawasaki dealer there. My car just isn't fast enough for me. I'll be around.

    Oh nice! Hopefully its nice Saturday night, I cant wait to find some races. I raced a Lightning last. Made it look like it was going backwards. I was looking for a nasty race but couldnt find one.

    I might have a date with a C6 Z06 this weekend My friend's dad has a brand new one and I told him I wanted a run for fun (Im going to get beat for sure lol).

    Either way, for the money youre going to spend on a ZX-10, you could make youre car pretty nasty. Pair of 3.73s, stall, headers, cam, maybe 100shot 0- get some tire out back and youll be good!

    Yea, but come on man, it's 10secs on 2wheels! (Maybe less)

    Me & my mechanic friend used to slap on mods on my car w/ his tools, but he hasn't been around so now I have stuff sittin that I can't install. I don't really trust any place around me to do it, so I'm kinda screwed.

    Mike, bring that thing over tonight, if it doesn't rain. Not fast enough? Heh, I have to agree with Tom about the money you would spend on the ZX-10. We'll get that thing deep in the tens, and then some, for that....

    BTW, were you over by the east Brunswick mall a few days back? Thought I seen a Pewter Camaro, w/rear spoiler, and exhaust pipes "sagging" a little downward. That you bro....?

    Got to admit that it is a rush. I'm contemplating taking a trip down the track with my buddy's Hyabusa.

    ... wife won't let me though.

    Street Lethal, that's awesome! The problem I seem to have w/ bikes is simply that I'm 6'7" and I seem to make most crotch rockets look like a little tricycle. I was actually lookin at the ZX-14, but that maybe over doing it! So I'll stick w/ the ZX-10R. I wish I could fit on a Busa, they're not that big of a frame, they sit to low and are just a long stretched bike. I'd appreciate it if we could hang sometime and you could give me some pointers on my slow LS1. I have headers & 3.73's collecting dust that need to be installed if you could recommend a place that's not totally killing my wallet. I just don't have the garage & tools for it.

    Wasn't me, but I should head over to get a Mother's Day gift soon! I've been seeing a few more Pewter's running around on Rt. 9 & 516. You'll def know it's me when you see my spoiler, LoL.

    Mike, Dave (Boosted) has his own shop, w/lift, over near East Brunswick. I keep urging you to come down to Raceway Park so you can meet a few of us. His shop specializes in rear's, and the headers we can do pretty much anytime bro....

    The stall is what's important though, trust me....!

    You are one tall mofo haha

    3.73s and headers are a great start but you really need a stall to make that thing haul ass. The 1 guy who I know who has a LS1, 4.10s, stalled.... man that thing is FAST and he is only full-bolt on. I think he went 11.6 on slicks. I think he recently sold it.

    Sometimes we need a little inspiration. Whenever I get the urge to just toss my '92 Firebird (which I would never really do), in favor for something entirely different, I'll simply watch something that get's the heart pumping, and the blood flowing....

    , and be sure to come down tonight if it doesn't rain.....
