12 second cars

anyone here got one? i'm sure people do, and i was just reading the latest maxim and noticed that to my amazement, they test drove some supercars, including a lamborghini gallardo and a new ferrari (i forgot the model), and in the 1/4 both of them ran high 12's. they were being driven by a professional racer. i guess this strikes me odd for obvious reasons. am i missing something, or do people really pay like 200K for cars that only as fast as people's hondas?

Re: 12 second cars

yea I got one but its not running an not my honda
If 1/4 times is all you look at i'm very sorry for you.
there is gearing in play if you wanted a 1/4 beast outta a lambo you could make one shorten the gears lighten it up etc etc.
take a 11 sec honda vs a stock Enzo to a real track i'm going to put all my chips on the enzo for turns braking looks top speed 100-150 mph time.
1/4 dont mean shit and if you really want just that and got tons of cash go with a Boosted Z06 or viper.

Re: 12 second cars

Yeah what Ace said.
I know a moderator on my local board and he has a boosted Firebird running 11's. It's a really cool car, nice and clean, but I'd take a slower, sexy Ferrari over it any day. Nothing juices panties quicker than the sound of an Italian V12 revving to 9,000 rpms

assume nothing wankling. Really just takes the slightest chunk of I.Q *you proved you lack* think if you could get a better car for 30K then why would lambo or Ferrari even be on the map.
fucktard..........

When it comes to supercars it not about the numbers. Its about the prestige. Sure they can pull some impressive numbers but those cars are meant to impress, not compete.

Re: 12 second cars

try to compare you civics to super cars at the 100-150 dash 0-100-0 timing
yes they have mark up for pimp points but they will kick your ass on a real road track

Sure somthing like a lotus super 7 kit would beat some but you give up the pimp ness. As I said before if all you judge cars by is 1/4 buy a z28 and you got a lot to learn

Re: 12 second cars

ace you're an idiot. is picking fights with people in forums why you have so many goddamn posts? i asked a question. it's funny that in this board everyone has such a chip on their shoulders. in powerlifting boards and other types of boards no one feels this need to pick fights with people online. i think they realize the obvious - it's pretty fuking gay to argue with people online. i see in ur profile that you like fighting, i'll assume that means you like to get drunk and argue with people online, because trust me i know people who really like to fight, and they wouldn't waste their time trying to start with people online. my only guess is that there's a lot of younger kids on these boards.

Re: 12 second cars

wtf??? the answer i want? i asked a question that i had no idea over, and had no answer in mind i was hoping for. see richochet and mrcas had helpful things to say. do you just chime in with your useless two cents on like every thread in here? do
you have a life? why do you think you 'earned' the right to have an attitude and argue online? most people just come here for cars, not socializing. i would have a guessed a 'drunken 4g pimp' like yourself would have something to do, like 'get drunk and pick a fight' maybe. i bet you're just some skinny little punk who would get the shit beaten out of him if he went around with that attitude in real life. i can tell you right now that if you gave me shit like that in real life i would have wiped you all over the place
