The fastest (just curious)

Postby Jeph » Wed Aug 18, 2004 1:32 am

i heard today that some guy near by has a HIGHLY modified beretta...a 383....yes, 383, and like 312 hp to the wheels, according to the dyno. the dude said the guy can run the 1/4 in like 8.1.......i have yet to see this holy grail...will look into it in the near future.

Come on dude, get real!

If he's only got 312hp at the wheels, there is no way he's running 8.1 in the quarter.
That doesn't even make sense.
Maybe 8.1 in the 1/8 mile?

My car would smoke that!

is it just me or should we all smack i got boost for sayin he'll smoke everyone? now 8.1? um NO no possible way unless he got spray and that's his base HP number and he feedin it with a 150 plus shot, only then woudl he possibly hit 8.1 if he has no spray, he's runnin MIN possibly low 11's, considering the weight of the body motor trany driveshaft ect. if it's RWD, if it's FWD, .. HAH! he dont' evne have a V8 and the guy if feedin you a line of major BS.

Oh also abotu the Feretta, it was going to be a v8 RWD application that would replace the Fbody Gm vehicles, it had extended wheels bases ( 10 inches on both sides if i remember correctly) and more flared fenders, they WHERE expirimenting with a 3.0 liter transverse mounted turbo charged motor that was coupled to an AWD transmission ( that would have been one hell of a tuner) However the only problem is that whiel they did motor revisions and expirimented they never made the body style more aggressive or gave it a more agressive stance to go with the concepts, unlike the camaro's and corvettes.

I don't car what people think, the BERETTA & FERETTA always looked/looks aggressive.  With or without ground effects.  GM just didn't want what ever sales the original F-Bodys had, taken away.  
:oo

Hey Z26er -

Can you read?

I said there was no way that car could run an 8.1 in the 1/4 with that H.P. And if you think 312 hp + a 150 shot is gonna be enough to do it, you really don't know much about racing.

I said maybe it could do an 8.1 time in the 1/8.

I also NEVER said my car could do an 8.1 in the quarter.

But if that car does an 8.1 in the 1/8, my car would beat that. For real.

Go back and read the post that I was replying to, and then read mine again.

And my car does make over 312 H.P.

Any time you wanna come smack me you are welcome to try, but you WILL get hurt.

You don't know S### about me or my car, so next time learn how to read before shootin' off your mouth.

ok ok..back on topic...

like i was sayin, i heard this info via 3rd person. i dont know if he said "312" or something else...he rattled off a LOT of numbers about the cars they fix up. HIGHLY modified cars. the guy i talked to has a naturally aspirated (CAI) ford focus, hi-flow exhaust (thank god not a fart pipe) and runs mid-high 13's.

rick, if your reading this, its some import place up by willow grove, on 611 or county line... impo-performance or something?

i said we should smack you for thinkin your car is the biggest baddest #### and that it will smoke everything. nothing was inteded to mention you running 8.1 in the 1/4 ,or the 8th. So stick some ice on your overheated head, strap duct tape across da mouth, and pop that over inflated "i'm faster" ego that's taking up my air space.

You really need to chill out.

I've never said my car is the "biggest baddest ####"

Your making it pretty obvious that YOU are the one with the over-inflated ego, not ME.

I can't believe that you are STILL MAD because a few weeks ago I said I thought my beretta could beat your talon in a race.

Stop being such a CHILD and GET OVER IT ALREADY!!!!!!

Oh yeah, and the invitation to come TRY to smack me is still open.

I'm not mad about that post, I'm annoyed that you continously say "I WILL SMOKE THAT" or "i will smoke this" what the hell man? you bleedin off some PSI to you brain or something?  And as for my talon, as i said, let's go dollar for dollar on engine mods, see who ends up goin down the 1/4 quicker. So far i'm onyl at 1.2 grand, you spent what? 3 total? that leaves 1.8 left to go... Quit lettin your turbo go to your head.
