Yup. At least I don't make false claims about how impossibly fast my car goes in 2nd.

Like Axxe said, I didn't hook up at the start and was using street tires as opposed to Rev's 1/4mile slicks. Other than that I was gaining on him once I started moving even though he was running N2O - so the handbrake was definately not on.

even my car (Z3 not the e30) can't hit 120 in second (though its pretty close)

max speed in 2nd gear (2.53:1 ratio) at 9000 RPM with a 4.10 Final gear is 97.1km/h

It comes very quick with the gearing that I'm running... That adds a lot of torque

You were in third. Top of third is ~ 130 for me. There is no way in hell you get 120 out of second, and why would you want to anyway? The whole 100kph (60mph) in second is to avoind a half second shift to make 0-60 times look better in magasines. According to those numbers Celica GT-S > ITR, but the truth is the ITR >>>>>> GT-S for usable, fun power.
