against 3000 gt

Postby thebish5thgen » Mon Jul 31, 2006 4:07 am

This is purely a curiosity question....has anyone raced a 3000 gt on the street? or even at the track? I see um all over the place here and when I get my car back I'd love to take one on.....but am I just settin myself up for embarrasment? as best I can tell the cars are similar....and with my intake.....exhaust.....ceramic clutch......and mbc pumpin up to about 12-14 psi or 1 bar....the specs would be higher than a stock one..... anyways just wanna hear some stories or insights into it.

I've encountered a few on the street, but very few that were much past stock in my own experiences. :shrug:

Base model and SL in stock form should be pretty even .
The VR4 one is another story.

A stock twin turbo version will be faster than a stock all-trac, however not very much faster, the car weights 1700+ kg! ;)
When in doubt - increase boost.

Probably going to come down to the driver. I have a friend who has a stock one and when I first got my all trac I raced him and had him off the line and all the way through 3rd until I hit boost cut.

Stock for stock, we don't stand a chance. Stock 1/4 times for 3000GT VR4 are mid/high 13. Lightly modded 3000 gt VR4 are still faster then our modded GT-Four. As for the 3000gt SL, they run with civics. Reason as to why some VR4 are slow is because of maintenances. Four wheel drive and 6 cylinders twin turbo, parts don't come cheap. Just look at how many of our gt four is either just sitting or running like crap. I love my gt four/alltrac, but facts are facts.

the prototype one for the fastest one in the world sold not too long ago. 764WHP AWD. the thing was so nuts it would not idle or run on anything close to pump gas.

wow...i wonder what type of weight savings they threw at that thing...did they go plastic body/etc like most serious draggers do?

i know it's off-topic, but is the AMS EVO8 (900 something AWHP) plastic?

not plastic...not allowed. and the 3kgt that sold was stock bodied with kit and hood in fiberglass. but the drag cars are either fiberglass or carbon fiber. jsut all painted.

hah, thanks mafix.
figured as much it'd be SOME non-metal material.
is plastic not allowed because of the way it shatters?
