besides my $36,000 STi could only do 12:98 in the 1/4 mile. my $8900 bike can do it in 11 seconds.

So my point. Not going to spend a ton of money on a car when I can spend less and go faster.

Did you personally run 11s on your bike?

I posted it earlier in the motorcycle thread.

Name one car that YOU can afford EVOCHARGER that will beat any one of my decade old Aprilias. And yes, I can pull low 11s and even an occasional high 10 on my bikes.

you can go plop down under 15 grand and get a high 9, low 10 second bike stock off the show room floor. In the 4 wheeled world there isn't anything under two hundred grand even close except heavily modified cars.

Do you think you can drive a car to it's full potential?

What traction issues are you talking about? The same physics apply to cars.

All MAV was saying was that he can get his speed kick without resorting to expensive to own and operate turbo cars.
Ladies, you're all pretty. Now can we get back on topic which is a turbo brz.
