My 98'Z28 gets 28 miles per gallon, and I have never lost a race thru turns to a civic, if they can do better maybe the drivers don't have the guts. When approtching traffic I let off, I will not put anyone else into harms way. The import drivers push on thru other cars. If this is the only way these little cars can beat American cars remember these streets are not for racing, old people drive there. If the lanes are open I Will win, if there are old or slow drivers please do not race around them. It is like a hostage to prove your little ugly car is faster. Check me out on the racetrack not the streets!!!
