    Default Prelude shut downed

    Tonight, coming up Macleod travelling north between Southland and Glenmore, there was a riced out silver latest gen prelude with bodykit, exhaust, and wheels.

    We pull up to a light. He revs the engine signalling a go. Unfortunately, he had 3 people in the car. Anyhow, with almost no effort, it wasn't much of a race. Oh yeah, there was a last gen celica also in the line-up, but even the prelude made him looked like he was standing still.

    Again, we pull up to another red (so many reds travelling north on Macleod at night) He signals again, and to no surprise, not much of a race.

    We pulled up to YET another light. This time, I let him go first, but caught up in no time and YET again, not much of a race.

    He still wanted to go!!... he pulls beside me, going at 55km/h and he downshifts and starts to rev the engine in neutral. So I humored him once more and by the time we got to 100, he was already 2 car lengths behind.

    I think though, the situation would have been different if he had no passengers. I'm sure his car is quite fast. Would definately race him again (when he's alone)

    Yah the race would be closer if he had no passengers but I'm sure the 330 would still come out on top. The 330 is high 14 sec car right?

    I test drove one awhile back and they have lots of low end torque, I was very impressed!

    Yeah.. the 330 isn't too slow. Unfortunately with the 18's it feels a tad less torque

    14.7! Wow, that's great!

    Maybe I can save up enough money to upgrade to a 330!
