And you guys are right to an extent with RWD vs AWD. any RWD car running slicks ,or drag radials and live axles can easily equal and AWD launch . however IRS cars generaly have bad wheel hop issues. to give an example of IRS cars with wheel hop, the worlds fastest supras switch to ford 9" rears ,and use GM 2 speed power glide trans. and with slicks they can pull some 1.5 short times.

On average an AWD car drivin right , will always out 60' a properly driver RWD car.
I can totally attest to the wheel hop issue.

BTW George says he could never get off the line faster than Lemon, and George is the fucking man when launching a RWD car. I'd be extremely surprised to see Tyler outlaunch Lemon.

P.S. Lookout for the white 1st gen with no interior, loud exhaust and sparco seats. Oh and rolling on Canadian Tire specials.

I dunno, it was in Alberni, but now it's in my driveway so it's all good. Got the poly bushings ordered along with some 4-point harnesses yesterday, should be rather fun I'm thinking.

oh should I?
hmm...maybe I can find something...but I haven't seen any FD for $18k lately though...I saw an FD in Nanaimo for $17000 or something. I think it's sold now.
I'll keep my eyes open though.
