I refered to this race on another post elsewhere, but didn't give much detail. Anyhoo, coming over
the tracks and down to the red left turn signal, I hear a car in the middle lane come flying over the tracks. Braking for the signal, I was only 20 feet from the cross-walk when the same car cuts me off to get into the turn lane...first. I had to brake hard to avoid rear-ending him, and let loose with a whole variety of bad ghetto profanity! I was hella pissed, he could easily have slipped behind me. When the light went green I deliberately gunned it and crawled up his ass for a quarter mile or so. I saw him watching me in his mirror, looking nervous. So I cooled off a bit, and pulled into the lane next to him at the next light. I ignored him...until he started reving and
glancing over my way. I couldn't tell if he had the SC1 or SC2 coupe, I knew that the SC1 had like 110 hp and the SC2 had 125.
I figured that he must have the bigger engine or he wouldn't be
picking a fight. The light changed and I got ahead by half a car length in first, then shifted to 2nd at around 6000 rpms. That was pretty much the end of the race for him. I pulled ahead three car
lengths and stayed there. He tried to get me to go again, looked vexed and irritated, but I just laughed and waved him off. I think the SC2 would have been right with me, they do mid and low 8's 0-60,
so he probably had the other one.
Payback is a bitch.

I have no problem with Saturn, but I didn't much care for this particular driver. I wasn't even looking for a race that night, he sort of forced the issue. Glad you like the Tib, have you checked out the 2003?

I'm not dissing a saturn because it's not a hyundai, in fact most of my friends have a HONDA. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/approve.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> I just don't like them that's all, nothing against anyone who has one, but we all have are likes and dislikes and I just dislike saturns. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Yeah, WtchDctr,
The V-6 SL has 182 hp. It's PROBABLY the fastest. The v-4 SL only has 135 hp in the 2.2 liter. I know the the SC2 with the 125 hp can do low 8's 0-60..if the v-6 is faster it's only a little faster....my guess? 8 flat
or maybe 7.8....it only comes with the auto.:)

v6 really gets 60 that fast.. i thought they had tall gearing and the extra weight were actually slower than the 4cyls? I may be way off.

CORRECTION ON PRIOR POST! It's the
L Series Saturn that has the stat I listed above. StarPrincess12 stated that she has a SL2. This car has exactly the same engine as the SC2..
either the 100 hp single cam, or the 124 hp double cam. An whooping of the SC2 was do to manual vs. auto or
just bad driving on the part of the SC2. In any case, I would have no problem spanking a SL2 with the single cam, stick or not. It would be a close race with an SL2 that has
the 124 hp engine AND and stick. If
anyone driving an SL2 thinks that beating an 140 hp Elantra or Tib is no problem...they may be in for a sad surprise. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/cry.gif width=16 height=16 border=0> The 0-60 and quarter mile times for the Tib or Elantra are almost exactly what the
Saturn SC2 and SL2 achieve.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>

i have a twin cam roughly 140ish HP...i don't know it's 0-60 time, but my best time at the track was a 16.2, which beat all three hyundais i went up against that night!(2k tib, 2k1accent and accent 4 door, i think 2k...) but uh, saturns are quick lil cars, at least mine is(or wil be soon!)<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

i stand corrected... I know one said twin cam on it.. maybe bad drivers. But both fared about the same (the two i have raced). From talking to people i have realized that most don't have the fogest clue on how to go fast... One example "I put it in neutral and when the light turns green i put it in drive and hit the gas" Reason for this.. a "neautral drop" or so they said. Ummm.. no<img src=/images/forums/snitz/cool.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

BTW i think my 0-60 is somewere around 9.. (8.7 - 9.2).. my 1/4 mile times are extremly close to flat 17's.. i may be able to pull a 16.9 with tires im running now. That 0-60 is an estimation. Anyone know for sure?

Yeah StarPrincess,
I always thought the SC2 was pretty quick...I had a friend that had one...the twin cam. I'm not sure how you estimate your improved h.p. or what mods you have, but your 1/4 mile time is good. BTW, MSN Carpoint
clocked their test Tib at 15.9....Motor Week got a 16 flat out of theirs...so don't take a win against ONE Tib as proof positive. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
