: g5 gt vs. lex IS 250 AWD

01-10-2009, 10:34 PM
so im with a few of my lady friends, and we meet up with a few of her guy friends... some rcih kid driving an IS.. right away he goes lets race ill spank that.. so we exchange a few words.. and off we go to the highway... do a pull from 55 mph i drop it into second.. and from 55 to about 120 i just take him and slowly pull away..
mind you we both each had 4 ppl in the car.. he was using paddle shifters and i am manual.. so i was happy with that outcome

Top speed in second gear is probably around 50. You'd be retarded to go into second at 55mph.

01-10-2009, 10:38 PM
my second gear tops out at 60... so idk what ur talking about haha.. but then again i have an 08 GT.. so idk if the gears are differnt?

01-10-2009, 10:40 PM
I was guestimating, but even then, wouldn't it have been better to start in third. I mean, our cars are great in 60 rolls because 60 is a sweet spot in third gear, so why not go from there?

01-10-2009, 10:42 PM
well he just kept slowing down.. so i said hey why not drop it into second haha.. i mean i wanna say 55 roll it could have been less.. but i feel second gear just brings alot of power for me.. but then again. thats just me.. but all that mattters is that i beat him lol

01-10-2009, 10:46 PM
i found in my car from like a 40-50 roll is great on my car. thats my sweet spot

01-10-2009, 10:47 PM
agreed.. i just feel 2nd gear is my power gear

01-10-2009, 10:48 PM
good win.

but 4 people in each car...:ohmy bad news bears

yeah i know... thast the only thing that sucked.. it woulda been a nice race with just drivers.. but oh well

For that speed, 3rd gear is my gear. On the 2.2L's, the gears top out quicker than the GT's do.

01-11-2009, 12:19 AM
GT's have different gearing 55 is a 2nd gear. Even tho i do think a at that kinda speed 3rd you would have out pulled him also

yeah i know... thast the only thing that sucked.. it woulda been a nice race with just drivers.. but oh well

i think racing w/ 4 ppl in each car no bueno for safety reasons. you get in a wreck thats 3 other people's lives in your hands. and 3 other people you are no responsible for if soemthign does happen

01-11-2009, 08:43 AM

I won't even begin to explain the idiocy involved with racing with 4 ppl in your car. C'mon.

01-11-2009, 04:58 PM
I won't even begin to explain the idiocy involved with street racing nevermind with 4 ppl in your car. C'mon.

Don't race with people in your car... you'll be faster and if anything happens.. you wont kill anyone!

01-11-2009, 07:32 PM
yeah, the weight difference is unbelievable. I can lose to a cavalier if i have ppl in my car. I dont race with ppl in my car anymore, too irresponsible. ( and way too slow ;) )

01-11-2009, 07:41 PM
my power gear is second. but a drop from 5th to 3rd pulls hard too. but that's cause i was doing 90km/h

oh, and street racing FTMFL never do that shit.

01-15-2009, 12:34 AM
