I'm still going to race my brother'* g/f. She has a 99SE, stock. I just want to see how well I can keep up. It will be close. I've driven hers on the thruway and it doesn't seem to have the pickup I have...but maybe that'* just because it'* quieter than mine and I can't hear the engine roar.
But I like how mine feels better.
If I race her when I'm cool, and less than 180 degrees still, I'll probably kill her. I've driven mine for two years so I know how mine shifts and so on. She'* had hers for a couple months, and just mashes the gas to speed up.
I'll report back whenever she'* up for it.
