anyone here? my friend sent me this link since hes a member.....maybe the kill story is true maybe not, just trying to confirm

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Im going to Englishtown Raceway Park again to test out the hondata reflash...last night went to some street races and won some and lost some..(even though i didnt technically lose!) The races i won: Lexus IS300 Manual with Exhaust and intake (that i seen and heard) maybe more since it was lowered.. beat him by a car with my friend in the car with me. The other win was against a Chevy or something.. it was a GTP or something..it looked fast. I beat him by about 2 cars or more..

The races i lost: First race of the night against a bubble back civic with a motor swap (obviously). I don't really take it as a lost but this guy had slicks and he had the better launch that put his back bumper at my front bumper and then HAZZARDS come on!! Im like "what the fuck??" I would've caught him! but oh well he ended up shuttin down after second gear! the next race was against a 99-00 Civic Si coupe. First run i was with my friend..i had the better start and was ahead (oh did that launch feel good!!) and then.... I FUCKIN MISSED SECOND!! i was heated!! So i asked him to run again.. So second run i launched at 2K rpms (like the last run) and caught traction very early..maybe around 3,5rpms... so he was ahead of me until 3rd and i was gaining on him approaching the end of 3rd gear..and then he shuts down! I dont think he had an Si motor though... i think it was a GSR motor.. but who knows.. everyone has swaps nowadays. but the TSX is no slouch anymore!..lol Top end is very nice now! Well with Hondata anyway..
I just need better tires!! and lighter rims!"

if I read that correctly, he beat the IS300 in a street race, not at the track

either way, not a surprise obviously, the TSX should kill an IS

Should kill an IS? What are you smoking?
I'm hoping you are thinking about TL, and not TSX.
TSX vs. IS it would be a very close race, drivers race. 6spd vs. 5spd. But I think the IS will still beat a TSX by a car.
Auto TSX vs. Auto IS, no contest IS300 will smoke it.

Pawel, did u not read?

this is a manual TSX 6 speed with I/H/E and hondata and it would def beat a manual IS with 2 passengers in it with just intake/exhaust

So that could explain why I got walked by a TSX not too long ago. He punched it from a roll at about 30mph and held a car length on me until we shut down at about 80mph where he turned onto the beltway (too damn busyin the day for me to chase 'em). But, lord knows I was mad as hell. lol. It felt like he punched me in the stomach and ran before I could hit him back.
