Yo,
Ive got a 1991 auto coupe ls....
A buddy of mine's girlfriend has a 98 gran prix gt coupe, and he wants to race. Inspired by the Fast and the Furious, he wont race for anything less than 300 bucks. Yea a real tough guy. I just told him to race me in his 2002 cavalier (WOW!) but naturally he wont. So......... do i race him? I think the specs on his gf's gt are like 215 hp, 205 torque. Im not sure about the weight, and my car is alot older. I dont want to do it unless im sure i'll win, but he's bein all cocky sayin "I would bet you my life that ill smoke you", so it makes me want to unleash the fury of the coupe. So far ive only REALLY raced one car, a 95 mustang gt 5.0.... i had 700lbs of passengers, she had 350... and i smoked her. By sixty mph i was 2 car lengths ahead. So the main question is will i blow this pontiac away or will it be close? Its not a gtp, i wouldnt touch those, and i know this girl has no mods at all and a system in the back. If i have any chance of losin im not gonna do it, i dont wanna lose the money.... please advise

If u can smoke a 95 gt you will smoke a grand prix gt. The mustang should have won though even if it was auto convertable.

I have a 93 legend sedan 5-speed and my brother has a 2000 grand prix gt and all i had at the time was an intake and i blew his doors off from the line... if it were me i would gladly take his money... i would even race title for title on that one

hehehehe...... thanx thats the reinforcement i needed.....
i think ill race him....
oh yea n20rbit,
does your bro have the coupe or sedan? does that add much weight in the gt?
The mustang i blew away was auto, but in her defense i will say it wasnt at peak performance.... she says she needs all new rings and she was losing horsepower......
So does anyone know the weight of the gran prix gt 2 door? How bout the weight of the legend coupe....?
just curious... i wanna make sure i win this guy has a big ego....
And he doesnt respect the greatest car ever built.
I wanna rape this domestic piece of shyte....LOL

if u race him, try to make the race go far into the top end............take it to 100 or 110 and ull probably win for sure, no worries........................lol but at least to 70 ya kno.........

i raced a 91-94 (i think its those years) mustang in my 94 type 1 sedan and it was very close upto 50 or 60 but at 70 he was way back................................

yeah!

yeah i think you should race too, but make sure there's enough room for you to hit 70-80 mph. you'll definately dust him.

I raced my mom's 98 Nissan Maxima SE auto(190 hp w/ 205 torque) (my bro driving it) with my 95 Legend GS auto(230hp w/ 206 torque). At first, in the beginning the Maxima took off on me by a car to 3/4 car's length, but when the legend hits like 3rd and 4th gear...it will take off. I came back to beat the Maxima going like 85 mph by a whole car and a half length.

I think you should definately do it.

yea i hear all of you.....
Ive decided i MUST race him. He doesnt respect the legend, and he needs to. And he will be spanked. And i will spank him. His pontiac may be zippy, but as soon as he hits 100k on his odo his car will be shot. My leg has 141 thousand on it already and runs like new. So i think ill take the chance and show him what this 11 year old ("piece of japanese crap" as he says) car can do.

Hey bro, be careful out there, and double check to make sure he hasn't shaved a "P" off of that "GT" lol. If you go for it, do it safely, show him what gives our legends their legendary name :)

A Fagalier will be no contest whatsoever. I raced a friend's Z24 with rice mods, ie. I/E/altezzas. I had him in first gear and I'm sure everyone on here knows that an auto's first gear is disgustingly weak. By the top of 2nd @ roughly 67 I had 2 lenghts and I wasn't going to go anymore be it: traffic, waste of gas.
You should put a hurtin' on the Grand Prix as well.. Just watch out for the GTPs. :D
