well, it wasn't really too much of a race, but she was inching forward, and i had to get in front of her to keep from being stuck behind a semi, so i started to inch forward as the light was turning green, i was still a bit behind her front bumper when it did, and had myself on a bit of a better roll. the ground was uneven, and very choppy, so i had some wheelspin, but when all was said and done, in less than 40 feet or so, i had whipped right around her. was suprised about it too, i took her easily even with the wheel spin, and i could tell she let up once she realized what i was doing. couldn't stop this saturn from getting in front of her.

not much of a kill, but it's nice to be able to command respect in traffic when you need to. all i know is i thought the IS300s were faster than they are, but i guess not (btw - it had to be auto, as not many people driving in downtown milwaukee rush hour drive stick, and if they do, they usually are in chill mode)

:p consider that a win! those damn defensive drivers will keep us agressive drivers from getting from point A to point B! :mad: They will do anything speed up when u put your turn signal on and slow down next to a car so u cant pass GRRRRRR :D lol you would have killed the IS300 any way even manual version, they are a low 15 car i think :confused: That is what road and track said atleast.

By the way were have you been i havent seen a post from you in a while! :(

They are quite slow, I think its a 215hp engine on like a 3400ib body..heavy for a small car like that..not enough umph.

Until you race a modded IS300.
I seen a video of a black Turbo IS300 with: 642 rwhp-599 rwtq, a mid 11 second car.
I have proof if anyone wants to see this clip.

Haha no need for proof on that one, truth is people try picking up 02's and modding them (cheapest ones) but they are expensive for the car you get. 30,000 dollar car new and its not fast stock..but turboed ones have alot of power indeed. Just depends if you have the money to spend on modding it...sorta like people modding 350z's or G35's.

I'll have my RL by the end of the year, I hope the aftermarket kicks in before I get my car. My car have been picked on by multiple vehicles, even the Scion tC (manual). I can't wait for my car because it's rare to see around here. The price should go down by then making the comp. package easier to buy. My salesperson said to wait until Jan. 2006, so I wait. The RL was the car I wanted to get but I screwed up. Every time I see a economy car going fast, I say, " You can go fast, but your no match for my Redline." My VTi feels torqueless off a line.
