hey all im new to these forums. Just wanted to share a recent racing story. One of my import only friends said that he could take me in his accord v6 vs my 2000 gls intrigue. the strip of road that we raced was a little over a quarter mile and right off the line through the end of the race my intrigue smoked him. Despite the fact that the tires spun like mad off the start the intrigues 230 ft/lbs of tourque crushed his honda's pathetic 190 ft/lbs. I finished a good 4 car lengths ahead of him. Gotta love the power of the 3.5 shortstar!!!
