I've got an unmodded 5spd '89 Z...here's some things that have beat me so far.

'95 5spd Neon
'92 4spd (?) Olds Cutlass Supreme DHOC
'92 5 or 6spd Dodge Stealth Twin Turbo

I'll keep you updated.

Oh yeah, I did beat a Chevette.

WEll I sure hope that the Stealth Twing turbo would beat you, cause they got like 300 hp.
But I like the Idea of making a list of cars you can beat with a Stock Z24 5 spd. This way owners of the Z24 can see what they at least have a chance of beating.
think you could have beat a Dodge Stealth Twin Turbo, even If you had NOS and Mods to the max. Those cars are awesome.
To add to this list so far I have beat:

88 Chevy. Celebrity 2.8L auto(smoked his ass bigtime even though he got a headstart)
98 F150 XL 2x4 auto,(also smoked his ass bigtime)
79 (I think) 4 spd 350 V8 Chevy Truch 2x4 4 speed.

I guess i can put my bodycount here to huh?

96 eclipse spider
94 240 sx
300zx with twin turbo, yes i did say it TWIN TURBO
(i really don't give a shit what anybody says but i beat an inline 6 with twin turbo) either that or I was really high and in my dream.

94 cadillac sedan deville
about 5 civics
2 6cyl mustangs

Looks like thats about it. And again, my stupid, piece of shit car did beat a twin turbo. I don't know how, maybe the driver let me win or he didn't have a clutch or something but winning is winning. And if anybody wants to NOT believe me....somebody start a post on how miracles happen.

Hey I'm new to this site (love it) and just wanna share some of my racing momemnts in my 93' Z24 (no mods as of yet)...ok first time I got into a real race with someone was on my way to the Bristol Motor Speedway to the drags down there. Me and my friend (who has a 75 Camaro) drove down there...he was with me and we came along next to a guy in a 96 or 97 Prelude...my friend being the import hater he was told me to race him. I was like what the crap...so we got along next to him and it was on...it was pretty even till the end when he had to turn off the interstate...it was a good race. Then later that night I ran my car at the drags...3 times. 1st against a little CRX that was sponsered and had nos and everything...he beat me by couple seconds. 2nd- a 91 5.0 Mustang. Blew me away...lol 3rd- Sonoma..not sure what year..but he jumped the light and I still chased him down and beat him. My fasted quarter was 16.8 with a passenger and some junk in the back..so I'd say about an extra 350 lbs.
I've also raced a 96 eclipse, he was in my mirrors the whole time . I'm addicted to racing and need to settle down... lol tried to get in a race with a MR2 the other night..he wouldn't do it...lucky for me, he probably would have smoked me...well I'll keep you guys up to date on my racing stats.

Here's another one for the list with my '89 Cavy RS 5 spd : 2000 Mercury Cougar V6, 1999 Civic SI Coupe (Canada)

I only wish my clutch was ok, cause the list would be a helluva lot longer!!! Probbably could include some newer Mustang GT's, best they have been able to do so far is beat me by about a car length....

Ok, anyone who thinks they beat an eclipse or talon....just put the crack pipe down and dial 911 because your mind is leaving your body. I put a McLaren TURBO 3.1 (rebuilt) in my wifes 93 cavalier, and I have a 97 Talon Turbo (modded). Even before I modded the Talon. There was no fucking way the 3.1 could catch OR Pass the Talon.
And my wife can race a car better than any other man I know. Because of this I decided to rebuild a new Talon motor for the sole purpose of drag racing, and put the old motor and tranny in my 89 Cavi. Check out my topic in J-body performance "Mitsubishi powered cavalier" and let me know what you all think. Criticism or praise ...I want to hear it all.

Eclipse's and Talon's don't all have turbo's, you know.

And I would love to see some pics to prove you have this turbo cav...

In response to an old message made by Z24stangkiller...

I have raced a 1992 MR2 non turbo and we were literally dead even. I was running a stock engine at the timeand he had the MR2 turbo exhaust system and a cutom air intake. So you prolly wouldnt have been blown away by that...

By the way, has anyone raced a Turbo MR2 and how much did you lose by (because i know you did).

Well I might as well add mine too since I have an interesting one:
- '97 5.0L V8 Mustang (Yes it's true, however I think he just didn't know how to drive standard...)
- '94 Blazer (Roasted like a chestnut)
- '96 V6 Mustang
- '94 V6 Jaguar (That's right I beat a Jag in my Cav, and he wasn't too happy)
- '94 240sx (Those really suck, I've driven one, slowass and shithandling...)
- '95 300zx (more on equal grounds with my '92 Z24, but I still won)
- '95 Dodge Neon Sport SuperCharged (That's right even supercharged and he still lost...)
- '93 Garbage Truck!!! (LOL I just thought I'd throw this on there, a garbage truck driver raced me one time, it was funny, I was surprised at how fast he finally got going though, it took him a while but after he got going it wasn't too bad, of course he didn't stand a hope in hell against me, but it was still funny)
