okay when driving today my rpm guage wasnt working (sorta reason why i almost got smoked)

remember i have a 1987 325 no letter

okey a scion (the big square one) pulls up ,and its fixed up, and he reves on me. so light turns green and we take off hes in front, i slowley creep up on him and pass him. i am thinking that thing can not be faster of the line then my car. but i do pass him, and as i do the guy gives thumbs up.
the next one was going on the freeway. i took him untill 90 and he pulled away it was some kind of american car i think it was a caviler or some thing like that.

i didnt go all the way in first and second gear because my rmp guage wasnt working!!! ghead

Never redline... well, not in the low rpm torque cars at least (I'm sure there are exceptions). You should have shifted by sound anyway...
And a SCION tried to race you? I'm going to go there right now and put that mofo in his place...
..
Sorry. I hate scions. They're butt ugly, and mechanically a bad idea. Although the marketing team did their research.
And some of the newer american cars... I want to test drive that CTS at least once... It technically handles better than my car...


Crap, I think I may be a yuppie...

and that "American car" that looks like a Cavalier...you sure it wasn't a GTO? That thing will smoke just about every car out there. A nasty car!

...it looks good on you, though!

i did shift by sound, but i just dont want to red line.
i know its not a gto i toke him off the line and when i reached like 85 he started to catch up. i was in third gear going in to fourth. after i keep up with him (3 car lengths) untill my exit.

today i got my tach. fixed.

your 325 should have eaten that scion and a cavalier at any speed. the scion has 100hp and about the same torque. cavalier isnt much better.

and, the cts is a pretty nice car. i was driving around in one of our super cts-v's yesterday.. and ive never actually .. hurt.. from accelerating so hard before, but it actually almost did.

too bad wheelhop is such a bitch in the CTS, but its easily curable with a system we developed.

Yeah, wheelhop... heh... That's kind of fun. Heh...
I mean... uh...
Those american cars do well in those upper ranges Wow. Now I really want to try that CTS... And the gt500 mustang definitely. And of course a corvette. Never done that...
