You should be able to make that thing look silly.

Tiburons

Yes you should win, especially the 4 Banger version. I killed one a couple weeks ago, thinking it was a V6. It could have been one, but it also could have been a 4-Banger. And if it was a 4 banger I would be surprised the idiot would try to race me.

Funny thing is I saw this same guy a couple days later (I recognized the nasty graphics he had on it) and he had...get this...a NOS STICKER IN THE WINDOW!!!!

These dumb ricers and their slow cars. They think that a NOS sticker is going to fool someone?

No, the NOS sticker adds a good 35hp, DUH. It isn't to fool anyone, it is to add HP!!! LOL. The NOS sticker just makes it more hilarious when you blow them away. But maybe, just maybe, that guy got pissed off that you beat him so he went out and actually got nitrous...highly doubtful though.

I doubt he got NOS too, but I'd like to ask him how much hp his sticker adds if I see him again.

But I do know a guy who bought a new Tiburon GT. He'* adding at least a 75 shot of NOS this month. By the time he'* done with it he said he will have over 300 hp. I always wonder why he'* putting $10,000 into this thing when he could have afforded a new SSEi.

Tiburon GT'* aren't much faster than the 4 bangers. IIRC the V6 5 speed runs the 1/4 in 16.3 & the Auto runs it in like 16.7...but I could be wrong. I know I looked it up the day that we completely blew one away on the highway. Stupid loser wanted to race the GTP, and he got what he wanted, unfortunately it wasn't pretty for him. We had honestly 20 cars on him by 115mph (from 80mph). Then he got off at the next exit. It seems to me like it would take a lot of $$$ & N20 to make a Tiburon 300hp...although I could be wrong.
