NX2000 vs. ST185

Postby Aaron » Thu Nov 02, 2006 6:21 pm

This guy I work with has an SR20DET-powered NX2000 running stock boost with intake/exhaust. Stock power is 220hp and 210 ft/lbs from what I'm told.

I have a '90 ST185 with 3" downpipe & air filter, stock boost. Seems like it would be a close race. We will be doing it soon...just looking for opinions on how much you think I'll win by. :D

Honestly, i say he will win, considering he probably weighs at least 500lbs lighter than you. But my cousins s14 sr20det is pretty quick with the exact same mods. Unless you at least run well into the 14s, i wouldn't count on beating him.

Goodluck though! Try to get a video :)

race him where races are meant to be raced... in rain, snow, or gravel :D

however, a couple of co-workers say that i should race another co-worker with an sr20. most say that it'll be competitive..
Aloha,

If you're pretty much stock, it will beat you. I've done it already with my cousin lol.

Well, if you launch hard as h*ll, like at 6k rpm and you clutch can take it, you will maybe take him.
When I think about it, you will win, if you launch it right.
good luck!!

At least up the boost to 15psi, to give yourself a better chance. Isn't an NX2000 front wheel drive? If so, you really need to beat him out of the hole. A good launch can give you the edge.

If all you've got is a dp and air filter, he's probably going to spank you. That car weighs a good 500+lbs less then yours.

I also have a 6-puck clutch, which I forgot to mention. We're probably going to be racing in about 20 mins or so so I'll post results when I get home. :)

Also, I just bought a TurboXS RFL BOV for 50 bucks from another co-worker. :D Next is the MBC.

If you need an MBC, I recommend the Twos R Us. About $50 and works great after 3 years.

if i remember corretly those nx's are FWD...meaning for you to have a chance you'll need turns or go from a dead stop.

if the nx2000 takes off anything like my car (which is big wheelspin 1st and 2nd) you might be able to hold of for 9-10 seconds before he smashes 3rd and passes you, just my guess...
With 15psi going through the alltrac later on though, it might be a different story :D
A man who shoveled snow for an hour to clear a space for his car during a blizzard in Chicago returned with his vehicle to find a woman had taken the space. Understandably, he shot her.

i think you'll win...i mean seriously you have an alltrac can you really be beatin?

in all serious ness this wont be much of a race imo he is gonna win hands down. unless he sucks at driving but even then i think just the car will have the edge on you.
