So I am rolling along the strip at about 40 when this guy in a 3000gt flies by me and yells "your car is slow" then gets the red light. I line up with him and first ask him if it was a VR4. it was not so we both launched. he pulled on me till VTEC then I caught him and held right next to him until I pulled away in 3rd. I guess he wont make the mistake of calling a lude slow again. lol

he was driving a 3000GT SL (SL stands for SLow). who calls someone's car slow when they are driving a near stock 3500 lb V6 car with barely 195 wheel hp? heh.

Yea the VR4 is the one you have to watch out for...300hp/300 tq range stock and it's AWD. If they had made it around 3200 lbs it would have been superior to the Supra, NSX, 300ZX TT...alas the only AWD Jap super sport car from the 90's was a fat ass. :(

a kid i know has an SL and ended up behind me in my fifth gen. he was riding my ass, cuz we are both on my schools formula car design team so we are always talking about cars and our cars. well we pushed through traffic, and when we got out we were doing about 50 and i hit the gas vtec kicked in and i pulled on him pretty good. he went from on my bumper to about 4 cars back. i thought they were kinda quick but i guess not.

My brother tried to tell me his 91 N/A Supra was 'fast'. Oh, and btw it's an automatic too.

3000GT's are heavy and slow. I raced one a few months back, and out of 4 races, I killed him each time. I haven't raced the VR4 yet though. There aren't too many around my area

I drove one of my friends auto base model 3000gt and it was very slow. I dont think it would be to hard to smoke one. I was a bit dissappointed because Is a good looking car but nice kill man

3000GT guys get cocky because their car pulls on the low-end, and their sister's automatic civic DX doesn't.

And you'll have a hell of a time finding a VR4 to race because they're all driven by old farts.
