can a del sol s beat anything

I got a 93 del sol s last summer. I love the car and its fun to drive but it is soo freaking slow. I was just wondering if there is are any cars it can outrun? Cuz i've never won a race that the other car knew about. So until I get the LS turbo setup done who should I pick on? I'm thinking the bus would be a good race.

Re: can a del sol s beat anything

you could take down any Geo..... but i think that the 3cyl engine might be a little too easy for you..... it's got about 50 hp.

Maybe my 86 accord also (9.8sec 0-60 time SLOW!!)

so yeah, you can beat lot's of cars, try a Ford aspire too.

I did race a kid on a bike once. But it was a crotch rocket, he pulled the front tire off the ground as he left me.

pedestrians are usually easy targets... just watch out for sleepers.

Yeah, I dont think I can hang with a pow pow powerwheel. They run the 1/4 in less than 2 days. That's way to fast!
