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

    Pulsar GTiR? Bloody hell, it's a done up granny wagon. Fast but zilch in the way of class.

    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.

    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

    Granted, it's not the best looking car but neither is the 8L

    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)

    Mine says 1452 cant believe this car has such a fat arse feel like I need to go on a diet to compensate for these tasty leather seats
    I was gonna put the 2 DLS amps I bought and make a mdf sub box but I think I might give it a miss now....

    APY 2000 WITH ESP

    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 ;)
