Default WoW Grand Prix GXP'* are.....

I was driveing to walmart tonight and i got stuck at a red light, i saw a grand prix pull up aside me, and i saw how fast he was going when he came up to me..

so i desided that he might want to race or be the racers type, so i power braked it and wait for green....


edit

of corse i didn't know it was a GXP untill i followed him to walmart the same place i was going and left a Biz card for him... i thoght it was the same moter i have just the S2 3.8..
wanted to see how much fast the the 2nd 3.8 was compaired to mine...

It looked like 96-99 style... did those have the 3.8SC or have the V8 yet?

I don't think so. If it was the 1997-200? model they didn't have a GXP. They had a GTP which got an L67.

Yeah, the badge should say GTP and then under it it should read "supercharged."

i wish i could get a respectable car to mess with me. The only ones i can ever find are just crap. An older SHO once, Jeep Cherokees seem to be big on that kinda stuff...and trucks.

i did get freakin PWNED by some Saturn V6 SUV the other day, but i completely did not expect him to be in the racing mood so by the time i realized what was going on it was too late.

Id like to go up against a series 2 na just to see how it compares.

If it was a GTP you would have had to wave 'bye' as it blew by you.

If it was a GXP you wouldn't have enough time to wave 'bye'.

My mom'* GXP is a beast.
