Question Probe races

Can you give me some input on what cars you have raced on the track and just on the roads, and what you have won and lost to.

I have not really lost any races because I know what to race. But some cars of note that I've beaten:

Honda Del Sol VTEC - was VERY close, but I won -
Acura Integra (Special Edition) - totally killed him
Ford Focus - Blew by him like he was standing still -
Many Civic HX's, VX's, and DX's - have not had the oppurtunity to race an SI yet......

Oh yes, I did lose once, to an AWD Turbocharged Mitsubishi Gallant VR-4, he killed me on the launch then I hung still with him after that, too bad I was behind him...

Raced a Ford F-150 that was modified once, was pretty close but I was catching up to him, don't know what he had maybe a supercharger??????

Probe_Racer, why do you always think that nitrous is cheating?

Cav

Well not sure about a 2.8

My friend has a caviler buts its the 3.1 It is very quick. I beat him maybe by a half of car length...Really there about neck and neck with the 3.0 probe...both can be moded to. But i havent raced a 2.8...so im sure you would beat any 2.8 cav.

well i think its cheating when

you dont have mods and by using nitrous you claim your car is the shit, lazy punks dont even know how to do an oil change :tdown:

which would be the same as someone using steroids to enhance their performance :tdown: to them too

NOT cheating when

you have already done as much as possible to your car as far as running on its own or with FI but still wish to have more power

so in your case dont sweat it i think you qualify on the non cheating part IMO ok
