Today I was on the highway and this Altima, with a <98 body style was tailing me, and I really wasn't gonna waste my gas, but then the highway opens up and he floors it by me (i hear an intake and exhast) and he is just just staring at me. I couldn't restrain myself and I just had to smoke him. By the time I decided to race him, he had already was 2 cars ahead of me, and then I saw him shift (it was stick) and he was still gunning it. I then floored it and closed the gap really quick. I then proceeded to pass him like he was standing still. Let me tell you the look on his face as I passed him was priceless! I can't wait to encounter a 2002 stick altima, I'm sure that will actually give me a race.

Yeah Type S is fast, u need to find a stick Max or 3 series, to give u a run. But don't worry your wish of the y2k2 Altimas 3.5 is on the way, and I have I feelin' it will slaughter your TYPE S.

Okay...good kill.

Those Acura Type S are quick and I must give Honda its credit on creating a fine automobile with luxury and 'sport' performance.It does however have a great advantage over the current Altima.In horsepower and torque.

But dont come here on your first post downplaying the capabilities of the Altima.

AS you can tell by the first few posts...members here can get downright rude if you want to go that route.:D

I wanna say that I respect the altima (i've driven several) and it does a good job of being the car it was designed to be (with a little pep). However, what amazed me was the balls this guy had to stare me down and pass me flooring it acting like he is God or something. That's just gay and he just needed to be taught a lesson.

Uh...I pick on cars that I know I'll lose to. Sometimes the driver's just bad and they screw up. Nothing wrong w/picking on bigger fish.
Actually, now that I think about it...I only pick on bigger fish. I can't remember the last time I played w/a stock honda.

No...no need to tell my parents since it's my car:p Anyway, their is a pretty significant difference between the regular TL and the Type S. Motor Trend says the TL-S runs the 1/4 mile in 14.7 at 97.6 and Car and Driver says it runs 14.8. Regular TL's (2000,2001,2002) run anywhere from 15.2-15.4. I'm taking mine to the track as soon as my comptech headers are installed.

cool!!! the altima costs 17K, your car is like 32K, race a 44K car (S4) and see the outcome..the new altima's are gonna run 0-60 in 6.1 and the 1/4 in 14.4 or so...all for a mere 26K....

Yep I agree, some people just need to be put in their place. A kill is a kill.

If the guy in the altima was being conceded with it he should be put in his place. The same way if a Kia was being conceded against an altima. The only time you should step up to a race is if its going to be close. Racing is boring when a viper races a honda civic EX. Its fun to watch, but after about the thrid time it gets boring, its like disney movies, you always can guess the out come in the ending.
