That car looked identical to the one at the NG. Also, if you can see past what everyone in this pic is looking at, you can see a little bit of a white, twin turbo, underground racing Lamborghini. (1500+ hp)

He was 26th out of 150 beating all kinds of crazy cars like GTR's, 911's, Ferrari's, Lambos, Vipers, and various Vettes including a ZR1. He was over 14mph faster than the average top speed of the group.

Damn good job indeed!

Re: Fall General BS Thread!!

Thank you. The announcer said it takes 800 hp to reach 170 mph and 1000 hp to reach 180 mph. I did not even know AMS made an Alpha 16 package for the GTR but there were a couple of them there. They even had AMS guys driving one of them that went past 200 mph. The Evo 2 that went 175+ did not stop in time for the end of the runway and pulled a Dukes of Hazard jump off of rolling mound in the grass!

Re: Fall General BS Thread!!

I need some help here. Since I bought my pilot last February, my gt hasi just sat. .I didn't intend for that to happen. Between the kids, having a better family ride, etc I just never got around to prepping it. Please provide detailed steps to what I need to do before turning the key and accidentally blowing up my engine or killing any thing else in it. I know I'll have to f do oil and filter and most likely battery. Also, would it be possible to limp it over to the base garage to work on it? It's about 10 miles away. Thanks. (I already know I'm an idiot for letting sit)

Re: Fall General BS Thread!!

Fresh gas
Make sure its not leaking anything
Make sure fluids are full.
Probably need a new battery in order to move it.

I let mine sit for 9 months over the last year and it started right up with no issues.
Took it to dads shop to do oil and check over stuff and had no issues.

Re: Fall General BS Thread!!

So let's say I have half a tank. Do I drain it some how? How would I get it to the gas station? Do I put some other chemical in there?

This is probably not the most correct thing to do but I would see if it starts, then if it does drive it to a gas station and just fill it up with fresh gas. other wise you can siphon it out and fill it up with a gas jug.

Re: Fall General BS Thread!!

Or there is a drain on our tanks 12mm right below where the neck goes into the tank, fill with fuel jug, and run a couple of tanks of good fuel through before going out and boosting it hard

What about the fuel in the lines? Do I need to worry about that?
