The Aventador screams, leaves hard and pulls out a huge lead as the Evo sits spooling up. But that all changes once the Evo launches—its boost spikes, its turbo howls and the 8 puts JDM foot to Italian ass. When it’s all said and done, the 165-mph Lambo’s loss is measured in bus lengths, and the Evo’s trap speed hits 202 mph!
At 220 mph, you lose control of your GT-R hurtling off the tarmac into the dirt. What would you do?
We thought Myles might have been just another basic Honda fan. He talked of owning several Acura Integras over the years, drives a beat up old Civic with over 200,000 miles on it and had the audacity to think those "wrong wheel drive, torqueless wonders" could be competitive in many forms of motorsport. Myles has indeed had the nerve to use his Integras in road racing, autocross and drag racing. Boasting high horsepower numbers, while conveniently omitting torque numbers, all while trying to outrun/outrace vastly superior cars was clearly part of the basic Honda fanboy delusion that Myles was consumed by.
Let's say that you were rolling around Shift-S3ctor's Airstrip Attack 7 in a twin-turbo, V-8-powered BMW M5. And let's say that for your half-mile run, you staged next to a plain-looking, white RS7. If you hadn't been paying attention in the pits, would you have felt pretty confident about pulling out the win? I mean, with an M5's stock 0-60 times in the mid-3-second range, and stock 0-100 times in just over 8 seconds, that's a pretty fast ride. Add in a few mods and you've got yourself a giant killer.
Airstrip attack racing has exploded in popularity in recent years, helping it become one of the most popular modern motorsports. Combining a stationary start with the crazy speeds of a half-mile drag race, airstrip attack racing pushes both man and machine to the very edge.
