Iv encountered 3 so far. I beat two:D. The third was racing a friend of mine in an 08 LANCER and was beating him when I slingshotted past both of them at maybe 110(2 a.m. no traffic). I slowed down to line up bumpers but he didnt want none!!!!!:mad::mad: I did everything I could to piss him off(safely lol) enough to mash on the pedal(four way flashers, falling back and passing). But nothing worked. Whats the deal?:confused:
2010 Kia Forte EX - Top Speed
2007 Acura TL - Top Speed

Way retarded to be street racing at any time of day. You are the people I wish would wrap their cars around telephone poles and have their licenses revoked. Take it to the track.

Can't really see a car with a 100 more hp getting beat, but hey, stranger things have happened. Look whoever posted that they beat a 300hp STI in an sx....which I find hard to believe lol

I only race from stand stills. Mostly civics and eclipses cause it's fun to say...oh shit, you just got abused by a Kia!!! Lol I've gotten thumbs up from vettes and what not, but I ain't gonna go up against an STI or an evo. Unless I throw another 6k into my engine, but that's a different story lol

I've owned a TL and driven many, and there's absolutely NO way a Forte EX (or even SX for that matter) can take one, from a stop or from a roll, at high speeds or whatever, there's just NO way.

Let me say it again: no way.

If a TL gets beat by a Forte, the driver needs some serious driving lessons and/or needs to have his car checked out big time...

lol so sure huh? what can i say? start preyin after one and try for yourself:rolleyes:....50 roll is where my experiences have been at. Havnt had the pleasure of a 0-GO. Oh and MY EX has a CAI, high-flow cat and custom magnaflow exhaust,. So id say im pushing at least 170hp from stock 156. Those extra lil horses help, today i was impressed by how slow a CTS was pulling away from me. I provoked him to see how i did. Was totally expecting to be eating dust, but no my lil Forte was screamin and hollerin but holdin his own!!!!

IDK.. I've seen and been the winner of some way one sided races.. I have serval people that were there with me taking a 97 nissan hardbody with a 5spd and a 4cyl.
and kicking the holly crap out of my friends 98 chevy truck that had a 350
I just out drove him..
He should have won but nope:p

anyway I agree its unlikely on a normal day with a good driver.. but well sometimes you can just be the better driver with the slower car and still win!

sounds stupid but its true

Well a base TL is clocked at almost 7 sec with age and neglect it maybe possible for it to lose to a lightly modded EX.

Its all about power to weight. For all we know the TL had a trunk full of road salt. A Type-S is quick but the base TL is a little "meh". Like a V6 stang'.

I havent run into a TL yet, but I killed a Tibby he even went out of his way to follow me and race and i killed him twice, once from a 50s roll and again from a dead stop and through a turn and all i got is my intake :D

I agree, it is all about power to weight, you could have a 173hp (180ish with an intake) 2800 lbs Koup SX beat a car with 250hp but a weight of 4000-5000lbs lol

Haa it is dangerous but I wouldn't wish upon anyone even my worst enemy to wrap their car around a post dude..... but welcome to the forums and hope u have fun just sittin in a lawn chair and just lookin at a trailer queen car that never sees any action especially a sporty car. I get whatcha sayn but its not like the guy was cutin people off on the road and driving reckless by swirving in traffic. Besides 173hp dragrace ain't nothn to be scared of. I'm sure it was a dragrace where it was safe enough. But come on don't be to hostle on the guy. Everyone is guilty of somthin silly in their life. Happy motoring =)

No street racing for me, thank you.

You were just lucky and went against very bad drivers and/or poorly running cars, that's all... It happens.
