Default performance Chat with local, Viper motor huh? (videos)

So at the IL GP Mod day there was a grandprix guy who saw us and stopped by, cool we thought. Turns out that this guy ended up being entertainment for the rest of the day.
He had a SE with the 3.1 motor in it. No performance mods anywhere, but he had one ricer coffee can muffler sticking out the back and had neon underbody and blue strobes in the corners.

This guy hung out for several hours, which was fine, but he dished out some MAJOR BS to us about performance. Just stood there and lied his butt off to all of us. Kept a straight face the whole time and tried to convience us of what he had.

Summery here of his mods- it runs [email protected] at Rt. 66 on a high profile RSA (and he'* never been booted for not having NHRA safety equipment), 13.5 on motor, 11.5 on a 100 shot of nitrous and methane. It has a viper motor in it (despite the 3100 intake) and the back end gets squirly when he guns it... (still FWD). It also has a transmission out of a factory supercharged camaro in it

Don't know how you could just Lie your butt off like this and stick around all day. We all tryied to be nice but we started having to bust him, cause we couldn't take it anymore.


In couple of the videos, that'* my silver ssei getting the last of my rocker install done. We were standing around my engine during couple of these.

-Listen to the conversation that the camera man is having, kinda of hard to hear on some, but funny none the less. The BS'er is wearing the white sweatshirt and hat. What a joke.

Please right click and save as, video taker warned me/us that sometimes he turns off the web server for the bandwidth. Might be tempory unavailable at times, won't get deleted.

Oh ya the camera man has mild modded 01 GTP and a 01 Ws6 that runs 10'* on the laughing gas. He couldn't get enough

is this guy on the forums? You guys seemed to take it pretty well. Maybe the CGP guys are a little more tolerant in real life? This guy would have been smoked off the net if he posted some of this stuff....

This Kid was DEAD SERIOUS!!!! We cut him a little slack cause he was a little slow and just 16. At first it ran 10'* than up to 11.5-12'* and he stuck with that.

No this kid wasn't a member, just a drive by Grand prix se with TOTALLY stock 3.1, even had the engine cover with the 3100 imprinted on it, and he still lied his *** of and told all of us it was a Viper motor, he didn't even know if it was a V10 or V12, we said must be the 12 ofcourse. (really is V10).

We only could take so much and we had to start busting him, on camera too. Were waiting for him to join and read the same topic over there.

What a putts.
