I knew/lived with the guy that owned the trust/greddy prototype, if thats what you were talking about. the reason why i ran like crap is cause it was tuned for denver altitude and then a guy bought it and drove it to the west coast without tuning it. last i heard, they blew the engine.

I'll give you VR4's are fast... But I dunno about THAT fast... I mean I got eaten in one in my 91 Celica GT, but it wasn't as bad as racing a 3rd gen Rex...that made me look like I was going backwards LOL.

stock for stock of course we're gonna lose: 2 less cylinders, 1 less turbo, lower compression....duh?

We're talking about 2 different classes here: That's like pitting a v8 against a 3cyl...

SL 1gen 222hp 2nd gen 218hp
VR4 1gen run 300hp 2nd gen &3rd gen 320hp

Stock 3000gt SL vs stock alltrac = Alltrac (would be a good race)
Stock VR4 vs Stock alltrac = VR4 easy (thats what happens when you have 120 more hp.)

Ohh and they are one of the best looking cars to ever be produced..

just my.02 :smokes:

It would not be that hard to beat a stock vr4.

Lets be more specific.

We will go with the lower horsepower 1gen vr4 vs 5th gen alltrac..

3700 pounds vs 3200 pounds = celica lighter by 500 pounds
300 hp vs 200hp = vr4 100hp over alltrac
both awd
both nearly no turbo lag

A really good driver in the celica could win over a bad driver in the vr4...

Well, since ive raced a vr4 I guess I have to comment. I was racing my buddies 91(iirc) with a six speed swap that was running only about 8 psi of boost. I was in my 90 AT with a 3" downpipe, no cats running 20 psi on a 46 trim ct26. I was bearly able to pull away from him. We're talking crawling away. And both my friend and I are pretty capable of driving our own cars. The vr4 may be slower then the other Japanese supercars but they aren't a slouch by any means.

Well when I raced a VR4 from a dig, I had him all the way to boost cut. I was SS (super stock) at the time with a gutted cat.

So many facters who knows. You may just be a much much better driver then him. Or knowing mitsu it probably spun a bearing or broke something... LOL These damn things are the touchiest little punks....

True, or the fact that he had two 15" subs in the back with a custom box. I'm sure that helped.
