I was cruising around looking to race something worth my time. I see a new Mustang GT. They're pretty quick, but I've already smoked enough at the track. No need to waste my gas. Then I see this S2000 with exhaust. Hmmm, lunch. I've been behind one before at a light when he was racing another car. When my tires finally hooked up I was right behind him the whole time. So I figure I've got a little bit more shit done since then, this should be interesting. I've never really full out raced one so I thought I could up my points and add an S2000 to my kill list. We manage to weed through traffic to get to a red light. Green and my tries are roasting. I spun through the intersection and had a nice chirp on the 1-2 shift. The S2000 had the jump on me because of this. I hit 60 and start reeling him in. 100 mph, it's all over. The S2000 is about a car length back. Should've seen the look on the guy's face when he realized what beat him. A very cool race.

It's a F-350 Super Duty Dually. I got intake, chip, headers, and exhaust. That S2000 never stood a chance.

With the S2000, its all about the driver. It can be a 15 second or a 13 second car depending on who's behind the wheel. The S2000 is difficult to launch and stay in the powerband.

I raced one last night and won even though I was outmatched (see sig) Ran him twice and beat him both times by 1.5 carlengths going 90.


Redline, that's quite a sleeper you got there! Have you ran it on a track yet?

OMG! I am sick of hearing that to drive a Honda S2K, you have to be a professional race car driver to beat anybody. Do you think that the rest of us are all professional race car drivers beating grandmas who are cruising around in Hondas?

I will give some props to a truck that my wife was racing this weekend in her 2000 GT mustang. I think it too was a f350. that thing was super tall. We were on the interstate on saturday when this truck is right on her ass. So she's like, "Hold on. I'm going to loose this guy." She floors it and is pulling away from him. BUT... that truck is doing a good job at hanging with us. She was up near 100mph and it felt like it was over. He stayed behind us as we weaved through traffic, but finally we had to slow down for our exit. He got up next to us and I gave him a thumbs up. He waved back with a thumbs up and kept on the interstate. We both said, "MAN, that was a fast TRUCK!!!"

Well hey, that S2000 is not for everybody. My friend just bought one, can't drive it worth shit. Its indeed a 16 second car, but than again, my friend who races his type-r (SCCA PRO, not street) could probably get the S2000 well into 13's.

The only reason I don't like S2000's is because for that much money - you simply do not get what you pay for.

I agree, the car is a bit overpriced. Especially when the car first came out and dealers were marking it way up. A performance bred car with rwd should have more torque.

But a 9,000 rpm redline sounds pretty awesome.

btw HondaKilla...

The 00 and 01' gt-s 6 speeds have close shift gates. Its not a defect, more like a design flaw. If you are experienced with manual and arent careless, you won't have to worry about misshifts. But they decided to revise it and the 02's have wider gates.

Its still a 94 Miata. I could get a CRX, chop off the top, do a motor swap and throw in some NOS and get a faster car.

And 2002Altima, the offer still stands.

Gotta love those diesels. You can add 60hp with just a chip. There is a turbo diesel Volvo sedan running around Houston. It's ****ing quick.

BTW, I was just ****in' around, I still drive my R/T. It's in the shop right now though. R/T vs Possum = R/T in bushes with. It looks like the trees used my truck as a chalk board. Oh well, insurance pays.
