Weather was a little nicer this weekend, went out with my friend trying to prove to him its better to build a cheap car then buy an expensive ass car and throw money at it. His car cost him almost 70K new and he has some LS mods, a tune and R888 drag radials, pretty nice car, but I prefer the galant!

First road we went to was way to crowded with hondas and shit I let off at the top of 3rd because a cop started heading down the road.

click

After some shit talking we decided to drive 20 minutes to a much better and quieter road.

2nd Race he spun I beat him

click

3rd Race was really close, I ended up pulling about 2 cars on him up top.

click


I probably wont be going back to the first road during the weekend way too many people.

Thanks for looking!

Pointless arguement is pointless. Its neither better nor worse do build vs buy. Just preference.

Fast cars though.

Lol your right its preference, but I believe in building a car because you know the ins and outs better know how it behaves and shit. Before the cadi he bought a 6266 fully built DSM despite me telling him buying a running DSM is a horrible idea.

This is how that went.

Nelson, i already talked to Chris and told him im planning to enter the street class. Not sure how I will do, but I plan on attending, unless I blow this car up before then. Im planning to attended flashlight drags in PA and cruisin weekend in OCMD all of which are way before the east coast shootout, so ill keep my fingers crossed it doesnt have to come apart because the motor has a year of very hard use.

Throw some curves and braking in there and see where it shines While I probably could hang with a V2 in a straight line from a get-go, I would take one of those any day over my VR4, but it is cool to have a sleeper like ours.

Can't watch the videos right now, but congrats if you kept up and/or beat him, as they are no slouches!

although tell him he should've gotten the manual, haha...they are sort of hard to find though.

Best shes gone was an [email protected] (at 28psi). I still have yet to go back to the track at 31psi to try to go faster! Really think 11.50s prolly will be the best it has in it tho.

Yea that one! Since racing me, he has done spray, E85, and a smaller pulley, also changed to a different tire. Did you see the big compilation video from NYD? My friend raced him in the KG Galant and lost on NYD. My galant and his galant sit almost the same.

Wont find an argument from me man. Its definitely not good, but for me its so hard to find the same type of "thrill" at the track it sucks. I've been looking for an affordable evo that I can get into road course racing a little bit, its the only thing I kinda find as thrilling as the street.

Hmm. Having one of each, makes me want to figure out how to race myself...

In all honesty, the two cars each serve very different purposes for me and each does what it is intended for quite well.

The V is great car to drive around day in and day out. Quiet, comfortable, car seats fit nicely, doesn't attract attention. But - goes like hell and can hustle through corners pretty damn well. That said, 90% of the time, it's kind of boring to drive because you have to be throwing what is safe and legal far out the window to really feel excited in it.

The Galant is more exciting to drive because it makes all kinds of good noises and is entertaining even at legal speeds. It grips and slips predictably and I just feel like I know every last little nuance of the car. I still like sinking in behind the wheel every bit as much as I did 17 years ago. Now if only I'd get around to fixing it so I can enjoy it some more.
