Haha i could handle anSentra SE-R they perform pretty nice. I have no doubt you could handle the camino in a drag but in top end it'll take out the SE-R no doubt though I've run a few cars that i'm pretty sure your SE-R would have problems with


Haha I'm not messing with your fuel economy though man

Oh by the way Your SE-R could handle an Evo in top end i know crazy but those cars are ALLL bottom end they have no top end it's pathetic

Uh......lets race for some money at a 1/4 mile sanctioned track. With my 40 mpg Neon SRT4....I might even give you a couple of seconds head start! There are lots of cars that kick rear at the track/street and get great mpgs. I personally want to squeeze 1 more mpg out of my 12 second 305 hp 2.4 Neon so that I can say it gets the same mpg as a Smart Car.....but I think I can say that already since the last real world mpg I have seen one get from a magazine company was 39!

I never said i could take your SRT4 in a 1/4 I've seen those cars run and my elco only breaks 16's in the 1/4 it did a 15.89 ONCE and i don't think i'll see that again untill stuff is done to it
