Are you kidding, ok, so may be they fell for the, "Oh it's a much more refined car than the Vette" BS from the Porsche salesman, but there not entirely insane.

If I'm in a boxster sitting next to a C6, I don't even acknowledge your existence.

The C6 is just in another echelon of sports car. I wouldn't turn one down if someone is trying to give one to me, after all, it is a Porsche, so thats kinda cool, but in a shootout on the streets, the boxster goes down in flames :laughing:

yea i know what your saying, its just that those bikes are all hella fast. the only one that i've been able to beat is a 250 ninja and im puttin down quite a bit of power for an L98. so i figured it was prolly a 250, must be a very new one.

btw, side note... what gears did you go with? i'm lookin to put some in, i'm thinkin 3.54 right now. currently i'm running with 2.73 w/ an automatic. also where and how much did you get them for?

when i purchased the car i was told it has 4.10 gears(also came with shift kit),wich sucks cuz i get 12 mpg and there loud as hell,sounds like a supercharger in my rearend,i hope to be getting smaller ones,the car topes out at like 137

It was probably a newer Ninja 600/636, a lot of those and Gixxers around here in Tampa.

Dude - I feel your pain. This green two wheeled machine has been terrorizing the streets now for a while. Those missed shifts will cost ya big time.

I ran one of those last week . Just to make it fair , I parked the Vette , got out and took off on two legs . Good thing I was wearing my Nike running shoes . They stick like glue , sort of like having drag radials . She was a good sport about it . She gave me a " thumbs up " as she drove off into the sunset . Now , if I can just remember where I parked my car ... :laughing:
