carrrnuttt VS EC0T3C

Here's the basic specs of the contenders:

EC0T3C:
2003 Chevy Cavalier
2.2-liter Ecotec I-4
140 hp @ 5600 rpm
150 ft-lb @ 4000 rpm
curb-weight = 2617 lbs
mods = none
mileage = approx: 2500 miles

carrrnuttt:
1992 Nissan Sentra SE-R
2.0-liter SR20DE I-4
140 hp @ 6400 rpm
132 ft-lb @ 4800 rpm
curb-weight = 2414 lbs
mods = generic cone air-filter; timing advance
mileage = approx: 125000 miles

This race has been long in the brewing, as we all know that ECOT3C has been talking Cavaliers up and down all over the board, and he has asked me for a race for a while now.

We finally decided to take some time to meet-up and take whatever runs we can get. We decided he'd follow me until we found an open red light.

First run: Coming around the street we met up on, he follows me. I had a feeling he'd jump on it. As soon as I saw his headlights pop-up, I jumped on it (still in second). I was in the far-right lane, and since there was a car in the middle of the three-laner, he was in the far-left lane. Don't know how close he was, but I know he was behind me.

Second run: This is the one I would consider the "legit" race. After our first run, we slowed-down, as we saw the light ahead of us about to turn red.

I brought my RPMs up to about 2000, as I heard his engine go up in revs also. Light turns, and I launch lightly, with only some slight clutch slipping, in order to preserve my deteriorating clutch.

I jumped him about a car from the launch, and by the time I topped second-gear, I was about two/three cars ahead. Tim said that he missed third, so I won't mention what came after second...

We also did another impromptu rolling run, where I managed to keep him at bay behind me again, although I won't count it.

We pulled-up to a car-wash afterwards, and he told me a couple of things:

1) He was shifting too early
2) If I was "stock", we would've been even
3) His car's still in the break-in period
4) He's new to stick-shifting

This is why I included the cars' respective mileages in the specs list. I did inform Tim that my car isn't that much faster than when it didn't have the two "mods" I have done, especially since it needs a tune-up, and a new clutch, among other things....

Anyhow, we're talking about a freeway run next, as he says his third and fourth are his strongest gears. He wants to run from 55MPH to his 108MPH governor. What do you guys think?

Cool runs, Tim. Till next time...

Upon review of GTStang's sig, I see nothing about mini Ls1's. So I assume that they're fair game and can certainly go down.

The correct term would be the LS.5 since they are half of an LS1 and you are corect....they can never lose....

so upon further analysis its clear that ECOT3C was not trying

Too good!!!

And low key is right, the way that he talks about slapping turbos on every cavalier known to man, surprised he didn't put one on his the hour or so before and go carrrnuttt hunting...
