this guy at my work thinks he is hot stuff cause he drives his mom's SVT contour that pull 1g. it also comes factory prepaired for nitrous he says.

You know what... it sounds like a crock to me.

I found a site that says the 200ft skidpad numbers are 0.84g (nothing to sneeze at but far from 1.0g).

Almost all cars are equiped from the factory to run nitrous (diesels and other alternative fuels excluded). All you have to do is add the spray and more fuel.

BTW, did this exchange occur at a highschool cafeteria?

88 ///M3

no, he works with me, but both of us just graduated from high school, so I guess it's close enough.

He is saying that all you have to add is the bottle for nitris. that would mean that the factory ran all the fuel lines right?

he had a little book saying how the SVT was "hand made" (bid deal, so is mine!) and the stats showed 1g i think.

that still doesn't mean that his car handles better than my M3!
