EF 5spd vs Nissan Silvia
I always thought Nissan Silvia Turbos were quick, but after this...
Coming back from the long weekend up the coast with a few mates, I got to the lights at Heathcote (NSW) and had a black nissan silvia next to me and an XG ute in the far lane.
The silvia starts nudging ahead under the red, and detecting this I think, why not, lets see how close I can go to keeping pace with him.
On green, we are off (gently 'cause I like my T5). XG wasn't interested, but the silvia is into it. He pulls half a carlength, blowoff valve pssshht-ing away. I grab second and have him reeled in by the time I get to 4000 in third, he is on my quarter and dropping away slowly.
So I back off and he overtakes me!?!
I really hope that this guy was not giving it 100% - but it sounded like he was. The good old EF has 295,000ks, three people on board and luggage. Oh, and did I mention that it is on gas?
Could this have actually occured or am I kidding myself? Has anyone else dusted a Silvia? Might have only been a CA18DET (1.8l) but it was a turbo.... Is the problem that I just have too little faith in the treaffioc light dragging abilities of my trusty EF?
I have never seriously attempted to race anyoine in it since I got it (and i am not going to get into the habit of it either) but I was interested to hear what cars something like my EF could beat (or you have beaten in your E-series)
