impressive yes, with 444hp and 340tq... but as said (else where) i think the body kit and head lights are over done and makes it look kinda ugly.

It has an aggressive but clean look, in my opinion. The mods seems some what radical, but ther 444 bhp and 340 lb torque seems like it would be able to run better than low 12 ets?!? no doubt a sweet car got my props

Ok, so who says it should do better than the low 12's runs. I would like to see that. Don't forget, sheis on street rubber here. with the right rubber, she would probably do low 11's runs.

She is a useable car on the road, not a stright drag machine. which would not last a hart beat, in the real World. 4000Miles and it's SHOT! Yea , I know cars which will blow my baby away, but I wanna live more than a week, and it should be good for 80/ 90K miles before a rebuild. It will stay with your so called Viper, and leave it for DEAD round bends. Kill dead most Italian cars, 360's and like. I can smoke the rubber at 100MPH good enough for me. Speed is ony money! how fast do you wanna go baby? and live. sub 4 second 60 and around 190 top end kicks my ass......

Looks Ok, I don't think there is a car in th World, which every single person likes. So, you can't please everyone, thats how it goes.....

As far as our friend D3r goes, he must be a sad sort. an 81 RX, get a life pall. He would not know a good car if it came up a bit him on the ass! OUCH!

BY the way! it's now up to 475BHP! and it's kick ass!
