I took some video of exactly how slow his car is. It'* painful. There is no bottom end what-so-ever. From 50-70 didn't seem so bad, but I could run faster 0-30mph.
His speedometer is also way off and reads too high. He'* got Grand Am GT wheels and tires on it and they're smaller than his stock tires. On the highway, I was doing 80 mph and he said his speedo read 100 mph. We didn't really plan that, so I'm not sure if we were going the same speed, but I know his speedometer '* way off. I think, at about 40 mph, his spedometer reads 50mph, so adjust your sence of speed when watching the videos.
Launching it from 50 mph:
Launch to 50 mph
From about 3 mph to 70 mph:
Slow Roll Up to 70 mph
OK, he'* got P225/50R16 on it, and I believe stock was P215/65R15. Looking at the specs of each tire, stock is 26.0 inches tall and his Grand Am tires are 24.9 inches tall, so that'* a big differance. I figures the speedo should read 8% high, and he'* said it always read about 5 mph high from the factory, so it'* about 10 mph off at 50 mph.
I'll try to run a can of sea foam through his engine as soon as I can, but that probably won't be until this weekend (if that). I wanted to do it last weekend, but he forgot to tell me he'* going to Michigan, so he'll get back Tuesday night.
I was thinking, at least his car sounds good! Oh well, maybe he should just send his piece of crap car to the junk yard and buy an SSEi.
