Re: 156 V6 Best Car Beat
Can'y say I have raced many in my alfa but I used to race a few in my V6 Astina or 323F to you pommies,
The alfa is quicker than the astina.
Auto 3.8l V6 commodore or falcon where easy pickings, not the new ones but the pre2004 ones are just hopelessly slow per litre,
V5 Bora took a few of them,
FTOs, (non turbo 2l, doubt you have them)
318 320 120 all have been beaten,
a 130 showed me I was dreaming
what else I dunno, Imprezza's aplenty, decent against wrx,
I had one decent race against a cop car,
**** you not,
I got slow rolling start, wheel spins on my right huh, cop has floored it catchs up to me and we hold pace, I am revving high but decide I can not get busted as his car is twice as loud as mine, till speed limit is reached 90 then I drop away he flys off. So about equal with a 3.8L auto cop car, not inspiring for the law abiding but if I ever thought I could out run a cop I would not think the tiny tina would be the car to do it. (Idid have rolling start and similar Fwd V Rwd, RWD will win the start)
Oh and once I was at lights next to a R32 GTR skyline,
He looks over and revs, I think does he want me to race I decide why not will be interesting to see what he beats me by,
lot of noise from my right side,
I rev out change to 2nd,
2nd gets near redline I back off and change to 4th,
whaaaaat where is he,
then vooom he flys past,
I dunno what he did but once he beat me he flew off out of sight veryyyyyy quickly.
My guess he wanted to see if he could beat me starting in second, no other explanation can fit cause he certainly was revving high when lights changed.
OH and I have to tell you what I saw infront of my house recently,
middle of winter 10pm two guys in a top down Z4 convertable stop at the lights, it was say 10 degrees.
I say to my friend (we are outside having a ciggy) bet he races off,
there is some sort of sedan thing next to him, can't see tree in the way.
2 tiny tyre chirps
engines roar Ohhh that sounds nice,
Z4 is falling away against the sedan thingy,
what is the sedan thing,
Bentley continental GT,
he schooled the Z4 and made my day,
but yeah its all driver ability at lower speed and I don't go much over limit so yeah I think I could beat a useless ***** in an M3 to a certain speed but once you spend time in any gear he will leave me for dead.
yeah its a slow day,
