Finally found a reliable source lol
That's why you have to take everything from the Internet with a grain of salt first cause it could all be bogus and what people beleive is true rather than the facts... but I don't see the purpose of a biturbo if you could only put 400 hp at most to good use in a true rally competition...

my old zx2 with some....well more than some mods under the hood. too bad some punk kid thrashed it after i sold it
http://c4.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/i...d4a3b6c703.jpg

ended up with about 215 hp all said and done. a LOT of work but way fun! nothing like a sleeper haha. nobody expects a zx2 to be puttin out more than 110 hp
Not bad...If it wasnt FWD it would be sick...240sx with a stock SR20det is only 210hp....Those rims are sick too...some of my favs ive ever seen.

I mostly race full size trucks and ricers...They are the ones that seem to instigate most of the time....havent raced an SRT truck or a SS...only ricers that have beat me was a civic that i didnt notice had a full rollcage in it till it passed me and a eclipse that had a bunch of stickers on it (didnt think it was modded till he got on it)...Stayed on the eclipse till 100mph and I was still even with his back bumper so I gave up...And raced a viper for the lulz...I gave up at 45mph.

I wouldn't race my truck because a): it has a 3.55 b): it's a truck c): it's manual, awesome for anything BUT quick shifting.

Besides, why would i want to beat up a brand new truck..

I guess I have no luck with instigating a race with the ricers cause they see my caltracs and know they will lose! Lol. I raced a 240sx with a 75 shot and put at least 6 truck lengths on him from 60-115 mph. I've raced a new Mazdaspeed 3 from 50-100 and he pulled 3 car lengths on me. I'm shooting for a high 13 in the 1/4 after I put the 4.10's in and get some 26-27" drag radials.
