I will only race people that seem to care about their car as much as I care about mine. Last thing I want is some idiot willing to wreck his car or mine just to beat me. This weeds out most ricers. I usually just laugh at most Hondas and stuff. I will however, go out of my way to race an NSX or S2000 once I get my car back!

I tend to stay away from RX-7's, Supras, and any M-series! I can't wait to get my engine conversion done! Teach some of the 5.0's owned by my friends in my neck of the woods that they are not the hottest shi*t in town. LOL!

I dont know....i'm not a big V8 fan but 5.0's are fast!!! (in a straight line that is.....)
P.S as for being the the hottest shi*t in town, i think your stock bimmer is better than a FORD!!!

the 5.0s in town? you mean in Niagara?

where did you have a chance to stake your claim against a 5.0?

anyways, once your car is finished, it will be NOWHERE in the same league as a 5.0. Probably wasn't before, but now you'll be far above and beyond.

Can't wait to see it!

There's particular excitement with having someone in your area have their car totally reconstructed, esp. when the original car was similar to yours. . . .

as for the question, i'm generally too nervous to race anyone because of safety reasons, except maybe on the track where i eventually i have to get myself. however, if there's a relatively safe spot somewhere . . .

Yeah in Niagara I know who's who in Niagara since alot of my friends have 5.0's

When my car had the stock 2.7L I wouldn't bother racing a 5.0 unless it was near some twisties in the road! LOL! And for being far above and beyond? Only if I put a turbo on that M50.

Mustangs may be ugly but they can be made to work pretty well for very little $$$. On the track their horsepower and torque can overcome a lot of their suspension/handling problems.

If you don't believe it, come to Mosport for a BMW Club event and you will see lots of 15K Mustangs beating the absolute crap out of brand new M3's, Porche 944's, and just about anything else out there.

There is something to be said for buying a 15 year old Ford and outrunning BMW's worth 5 times as much. Most Mustang drivers would love to have a BMW for the track- the fact is that you can't build anything as fast for the same $$$ investment.

Keep an open mind- you'd be surprised what actually works in real life, on real race tracks.
