I have #1025 and I have a friend that has a 2001 GT. The first time I raced him I was completly stock and he had dynomax mufflers and K&N filter. We raced at a dead stop, so we took off and we were even until he starts pulling away. Well I go into third gear and catchup but never beat him. His GT was quick. About a month passes and I get my birthday present from my girlfriend. She got me Bassani off-road X-pipe and two chamber flows. I LOVE YOU BABE! Well I strap those puppies on and break them in. By this time his only add on was the Steeda tri-ax that his girlfriend(which is my girl's cousin) bought him for christmas, (man we got some cool girls). So I talk smack and got him to race me again. On the way over to our secret track spot....he makes a quick exit off the freeway with a friend of his whose driving a truck and looses me intentionally...no big deal so i continue to our spot and wait. He shows up with his friend and we line up. He's got this big smerk on his face and the light turns green. He jumps real quick and beats me off the line.....it was unbelievable how fast he was in first gear....I am in first too and shift to second @about 5800rpm before he does. So I catch up at the end of second and shift into third at the same rpm. During third I just spank him real bad and glance over and see him make a (WTF?)face. I love when that happens. I ended beating him by about a car length. We race again and the same thing happens...he spanked me off the line but at the end of second and third I hand his ass to him. So he is not happy and wants to race again...and I suggest he should just keep his dignity and admitt defeat. But he was insistant and once again we race. Well third time wasn't a charm for him as I put two carlengths this time. After the races I just felt sorry for the guy. He then confesses he let pressure out of his tires and removes his spare at the gas station and stores it in his friends truck before meeting me at the line. The punk tried to cheat and still lost. Oh well, thats my story racing a requlatGT. Those 99+GT's are pretty quick, just make sure you know how to drive and shift at the proper rpm.
No additional mods yet, getting aluminum driveshaft, 3.73's, Nitto DR's, and a procharger.
No times either.
Rock on people.
