Well i was at the midnight races in salt lake city, we have them at a raceway to prevent dumb kid that want to race on the street to have a place to race. so to make this short two cars come up to the line and start to rev, the green light fires and all i seen was a 200sx and a new mustang saleen. fore sure i thought the mustang was going to pull it out but this 200sx did something that made it run a 13.46 1/4 mile. hell ya more power to the nissan owners:thumbup: oh and i seen a few maximas kick some arse:p

The Saleen(pronounced Sah-lean) must have been a GT with a body kit. the S\Ced versions run low-low 12's with a descent driver.BTW they arent designed for quarter mile anyway.

He could have simply I/H/E a 50shot and slicks if it was an SE-R.

The Saleens are made for track racing (AutoCross)? Do they actually win? I would think they are way to heavy. I thought they were just fast ass trackstangs along with the S281's, Cobras and Roushes.

It'd be pretty easy to get a 200sx down to a 13.4 if he had an sr20. Bolt-ons and a small shot of n2o will get you down there, or a turbo would get you to a 13.4 pretty easily. Now if he has a ga16 that's a whole other story

squeezin' what? squeezin' some boobies!

Hey SweetRideNAZ. Every Thursday nite at 7pm there is "Sport Compact Drag Nite" at Firebird Raceway www.firebirdraceway.com
But since you hate Honda's so much you might not want to go cause there's some fast ones out there. Along with some fast WRX's EVO's SpecV's 300ZX's and quite a few ugly, loud but quick Neons. you should come check it out. $15 and you can race all you want. they have burnout contests at the end of the nite too and local Team's & Shops display their stuff too

hey i was there to

But instead of waiting in the pits for an hour and half to make one run, i went to the road course (auto cross basically) that they set up on the oval. In the time they did one run, we had done about 6. Pretty dope, lots of fun in the non turbo 1990 nissan 300zx. They need to just build a road couse in utah that way all the people who like to turn could do it. On the road couse there was a guy with a classic SE-R that had a turbo charged sr20de, with a nice FMIC, and some pretty dope looking volk rims, also there was a 89-93 240 with an sr20det swap.


The worst part about the "midnight" drags are all the people who bring there 18 second cars out. (yeah yeah i know mine is slow as well i was only able to trap at 16.6 when i ran)

latter wiggY when is the next meet

God I hate those racers! Especially Honda Civics thinking they can tear up my baby...oh and dig this...on the way to Jacksonville today, a new BMW wanted to race...I smoked the shit out of it...and he wants to pull over and talk shit to me....

To my fellow Nissan owners, hope to see ya'll on the raceway one day so we can destroy the other imports....

Laters, Katie

Actually I haven't yet. There is an SVT meet at a track next month for the weekend and they'll have instructors there for training. I need training before I would even dare track it. This car has @400rwhp so I'd better know what exactly I'm doing before I go out there. I can't wait though. I'll keep you all posted and hopefully have videos as well.

hey i am going out to the races this week

Hey NAGAL, I'm going to go out to the races this week i am thinking i will do the auto x and maybe do the drags, you can now do both for like $15.00 which is pretty dope, and the cool thing is that autocross will start one hour earlier and still go until 2 am. I'm thinkin if i go do autocross i will get in the drag line right at the beginning do one pass and then go do the road course for the rest of the night
I'm just right off of bangater highway and 78th

hey shoot me an email if you ever want to go chill' [email protected]
