You know this is just me but you shouldn't ask for vids of peoples car and than just be rude and say your car is faster. If you were just trying to be funny that is one thing, but say so or put a emoticon next to it. Otherwise you are just being mean and stupid

Sorry my rant over

There'* a big difference between 'faster' and 'quicker'. Faster is top end. Quicker is accelleration in a sprint.

A 95-99 SE will whoop your butt. They're lighter and quicker.

Comparing equal generations, and SE will be generally quicker than an SLE because of the weight difference.

You also have to take into account any gear ratio differences, tires, traction, weather (humidity and temperature) and a host of other things.

Simply stating yours is quicker or faster is pointless. Put it on the track in equal conditions at the same time (or at least the same day at the same track.

Empty claims based on opinion get you nowhere.

I posted that explanation for an Administrative reason as well as technical. We've had far too many instances of 'my car is quicker than yours' blow up here. And in most cases, the car that'* claimed to be faster or quicker is actually NOT. Simply because all the facts were not considered.

If you think your car is quicker, put it on a track and prove it. Empty claims based on opinion turn into a flame war on internet forums.

For instance, I can claim, based on fact (running side by side at a dragstrip) that my bone-stock SLE is as quick or quicker than at least one, and probably a few 96-99 SSEi'*, and in that regard, quicker than any 00+ SSEi because of their increased weight. I put it on the track, proved it'* capability (in an untuned condition I might add) and ran side by side in the exact same conditions with a 97 SSEi. To further nail it down, I drove that 97 SSEi to it'* best recorded time to rule out the driver, and still (barely) beat it with my SLE.

I can make such a claim because I PROVED it. I would not make that claim or any other similar claim if I had nothing to back it up.
