 Look @ 1:31 of the video, you can tell he wasn't even on the gas  and just letting those idiots think they had him.  Then his front end raises when he punches it and smokes them!  Love this video...

The video isn't loading properly for me (damn you work network!) but the title says Corvette vs. Eagle talon.

Aren't both of those American cars? Which one wins?

 Ya, but Eagle Talons are still fixed up like the imports if I'm not mistaken?  Aren't they the poor man's Eclipse?  Either way, I would consider those two in the car import guys...

 This entire conversation is stupid.

You can make a fucking bathtub on wheels run a 11 second 1/4.  The only debate should be what a car will do stock vs stock.  Once you get into the modded discussion it just gets fucking retarded from whatever side you are on.

 The car in that vid is not a Lingenfelter tuned Vette, and also not a Z06, it had some work done to it by Doug Rippie motorsports.  He was also spraying nitrous, and spun like crazy in the last race.  You see his front end lift when he finally hooks up and reels the talon in.

Kingoffighters,

What does a Supra with 500 hp, 700 hp and 900 hp have in common?  They all run 12's.

Supra's are highway rollon racing cars how gay is that? That is why you don't see them on road courses or drag racing.

I agree with the guy who commented on once you start modding cars everything goes out the window.

 Thanks for clearing up what it was, I was going off what was on Youtube!  Looked to me like he was sandbagging in the last race, not spinnng?

 No worries, I know that because the owner of the Vette posts on a car board I frequent.  Said he had recently installed the nitrous and wasn't used to the additional power yet.  He eventually added a maggnusson supercharger in addition to the nitrous.........think he was pushing a little north of 600hp.  Another thing is that the vette owner became friends with the Talon guys which was kind of cool, no animosity or bad blood.
