S2000 Questions?

This guy at work swears his stock S2000 is the fastest car in world. Because it pulls harder than his old Prelude, whatever the hell that means! He said he had no problem hanging with a Terminator the other day. How fast are those cars? With my mods could i beat him?

Re: S2000 Questions?

in the twisties an S2000 is one quick little car, but in a straight line? they are a low 14-second car in the quarter...so his story about hanging with a Termy is complete b.s....it was probably a v6 with snakes on the fenders...i can beat up on a stock s2000 in a straight line/quarter mile, so there is no way that that s2000 could hold a candle to a termy in a straight line...now as for a road course, that could be a different story since the s2000 only weight like 2700lbs...

Re: S2000 Questions?

The S2000 is a rather sad car in acceleration. They are about even with a stock 99-04 GT mustang... and run mid/low 14s in the quarter stock. He has NO chance vs a terminator if the terminator was actually trying.

They feel like slugs and have no tq, he is living in his own fantasy world.

exactly what i was going to say. theyre great if youre going to want to turn.

they have the worst torque-curve ever. car has no pull until your up in the 5k range.

to top it off the motor is higher-than-normal compression, making it unfriendly to boost, however making them all motor + nitrous seems to work for most.

definately no match for a Termie. any edge they have in a turn will be far surpassed once the termie hits the throttle and shoots out of it.

Re: S2000 Questions?

As the joke goes, "I was going to order an S2000, but the dealer said after the car got here, the torque would be another 2 weeks."

I have seen a high 13 out of one or two(13.9xxx), but both owners said if they drove the car like that everytime, the rear end would be splattered all over the highway.

Meh.....just another ricer it sounds like.

Re: S2000 Questions?

A stock S2000 would get it *** hole reamed out by a stock Terminator, and it would be even worse if the Terminator was modded. Mod for mod a Terminator would kill a S2000, and it would take a lot of modding and money for an S2000 just to play in the same field as a stock Terminator, at least if your talking acceleration. Tell your friend that Johnny Tran was just a movie charactor.

Thomas I think we've been using to many "The Fast And The Furious" jokes lately. What I said sounded kind of corny now that I think about it. But yes Santa is real, just like Rocky Balboa.

I am trying to find that picture thats a parody of the old Wendy's "Where's the beef?" commercial that says "Where's the torque"?
