Ok, I am not into racing but I have noticed all the little V6 cars and 4bangers wanting to race when we are out in the SS. The SS only has about 650 miles on it so I do not want to beat on it yet but this guy today started revving the engine at me when I was sitting behind him at a light. I followed him through the single lane traffic until the road hits a 55 mph area and splits into two lanes with about 300yards to a light. He tried to take off away from me coming up to the light but couldnt so he jumped into the other lane so we were lined up at the light. He asked how I liked the car and asked if it was fast (kind of sarcastic). I just told him it was "quick" and left it at that.... Well, the light went green and we took off (not knowing what the car is actually capable of compared to other cars, since I don't get into the race thing). The guy and his aftermarket exhaust were left about 4-5 cars back by the time I hit 80mph. Yeah, I know it was just a Probe GT w/ an exhaust but it was still fun to see what the car can do.... Anyway, that was my joke of a race I had today.....

Again, it was just funny and not a serious "kill".... I don't ever race anyone and thought was funny that a Probe GT wanted to, so I did, sort of.... It is not like it was impressive but it was still fun to get on it a little.... I did think the Probe GT's were faster though....I know the older ones (circa 1991) with the turbo were pretty fast but not sure compared to cars now....

The only thing I always that was cool with the probe GT was the adjustable suspension, it had 3 different stances you could choose from on board. Other then that they are POS!

A kill is a kill in my book! If he revved and he lost, he got jacked! Besides, who's to say (before the race anyways) the Probe wasn't runnin nitrous and some other shnizzle?!?!?! Its definitely a kill ESPECIALLY if the PROBE is the one that challenged!

So what?

Who's talking about ANY 9 second car?

I said 'what if it was to be a geo metro' because of the nature in which HE HIMSELF told the story!!!

'I know it was just a probe, but he asked for it'

'I know it was just a GEO METRO but he asked for it'

Who said anything about a 9 second car??? I still don't see it.

it's not the idea that it's a 9 second car... it's a geo metro that looks like it belongs ot someone that lives in kentucky and has a meth lab built in the back of it lol

the whole topic was "racing a geo metro" haha

Tight work on ur kill. I once owned a 90 probe GT turbo...nothing special, beat civics and shit but nothing special. N-e-wayz, good kill. If it was a 92+ it was a v6.

LoL...

I race Geo's too... Actually, my buddies get pissed because I can even get mini-van's to try and get on it and try. Ok, here is the funny part, I don't drive an SS, I drive a del Sol. O and another funny part is, I lose sometimes. :eek: LMFAO

I don't think I ever lost to a Metro, but I do lose to trucks and jeeps and all these things that aren't supposed to be fast! YAAAAY! LoL
