Cool Spec V Kill!

raced my boys 04 Spec V off the line, off a roll, launched from 2nd, and in 3rd gear and ate him everytime. we raced about 8 times and i ate him everytime. Hes got intake and exhaust and i got a stock 95 gsr. I also raced a yellow one with same mods and the outcome was the same. Anyone else whooped up on them too!?

Re: Spec V Kill!

good kill. Did you get him off the line? That's the only place Specs really shine at because of the torque and LSD. From a roll they aren't great. Specs have absolutely no top end, the powerband is between 3 and 4k. Not exactly what you want for freeway racing.

Re: Spec V Kill!

Good kill I raced one the summer before last in the 1/8th mile track and it barely beat me by like .10 of a second but after switching my short ram intake out for a Cold Air Intake I beat a couple at the track and on the highway there wasn't really a challenge. Own a pretty modded 95 VR6 Jetta Cams,chip,exhaust,Schrick VGI,pullies,lightened flywheel,clutch etc.

shoot, most of the people I talk to that drive Specs have been able to hit consistent 15.3-15.1s at the track. They are fast cars from the factory, just need better top end performance. I think if the car was setup to open up the secondaries about 1000 rpm sooner it'd be a pretty quick car. My secondaries are only open for like 1000 rpm, from about 5200 to the 6300 rpm limit, and the damn redline is at 6200 rpm.

Re: Spec V Kill!

nice kill
yeah they have a lot of tq and initial bite but no top end
think of them as slower wrx's
a ounk kid around here working at a local jamba juice has got a silver spec v and messed with me when i came up to pick up one of my friends from work
he told me the guy was an ass so i tore him a new one

That's what I'm thinking. Actually, many Spec can into the high 15's with those mods while a Stock GS-R is around mid 15's. Yes, it's possible you beat him, but I can't see a killing there

Re: Spec V Kill!

I find this very hard to believe. A spec V with an intake and exhaust will easily push 190-195hp, and the wimpier 1.7 liter gs-r has nowhere near that.. I'm gonna have to agree and say the nissan driver really does suck.
