    What's with all the Pulsar hate?
    It would destroy anything on this forum, be it on the road or round a track.

    You weren't here at the time so you won't know.

    I once said that a Pulsar had the potential for being the fastest car in the world ever.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Unfortunately I don't sit on forums all day so you're quite right I wasn't here.

    And just to clear that up the Pulsar is the fastest car ever to be produced. Ever.

    yeah maybe if you could drive it!!!

    How the hell were you scared to take a TRACKCAR on the TRACK????

    Nah im sure there is quicker stuff on here, on guys got a 600bhp. would be a good race I reckon.

    Anyway, you couldnt even pass that VXR with the big turbo.

    Go back to your space buggie mk5 forum
    Word!!!

    My A3/Martys Golf would smash that, and this guys £7000 GT9743 supercharged love machine.

    Anyway, you couldnt even pass that VXR with the big turbo. LOL I could only take it to 5k because of a missfire? If running right he would have been destroyed like many others.

    I never had it on full boost with you in the car because it wasn't fueling properly. Round a track I had more than my fair share of FULL boost. As well as a few times on the road before it had a problem. It was hard to open it up on the road as you needed a long clear stretch to actually hit boost (and a full tank of fuel)

    You know how all records of speed are put into fact. Back to back runs not just one. One could be a bad launch or a miss gear. Twice in a row will give a more accurate clue to who is quicker. Torque is king for acceleration and you lack it in comparison
