That faster one probably just has the body kit, since it adds much bigger rear wheels.

The specs are right.

The wonders Lingenfelter can do with Vettes :-)

0-60 is less than 2 seconds....say bye bye to your brain and say hello to the head rest

I dont believe it. 0-60 in under 2 seconds is physically impossible with street legal 19 inch tires. If it does that fast of a time it's quarter mile should damn near be in the high 7's to mid 8's. If someone could prove that what I say is wrong please do, seriously I'd like to know, when you can prove it then I'll believe it, thanks.

I know you guys aren't fool enough to believe that it does 0-60 in that amount of time. not with street legal 19 inch tires anyways.

That's what I was thinking, but so many people confirmed it.

Yes, all of these stats are correct.
I have a copy of the article that was printed in MT in june 2002
all of the stats listed were correct and yes the car performed this on Micky Thompson E.T. Street 26x11.5-16 "cheater slicks

yea those are a 26 inch diameter tire mounted on a 16 inch rim, 11.5 inches wide. that's around a 5 inch sidewall which on launch gives it the effect of a funny car taking off, it flexes the tire for a split second then the tire reacts with the rebound and it's basically gone. with the ratio and grip of the car, and also the lightness, i wonder if the front end pops up any. also when comparing it to the Hennessy Vipers it's fast for that reason that it has 26 inch diameter tires and the Viper (I believe) is running on the stock tires which are somewhere around 20 inches so it's slower, as with all cars taller tires mean faster cuz the more grip, unless it is that unpowerful of a car. i'd rather have the 2000 180SX, 0-60 in 1.2 seconds.

taller tires don't change the grip. they change the gearing.
