i wounder if it's the same guys from the article. it just seems unlikely that there would be two 700hp ka's all of a sudden.

if it's a 700hp KA, then I'm pretty sure he was trying quite hard... and even if he was running it at full potential he wouldnt keep up.

on a bit of a side note there was a speed related death near by late night tuesday i believe it was. nothing is certain from what i've read other than the driver was going too fast and died at the scene. his passenger was rushed to the hospital in critical condition but the driver of the van he hit was not seriously injured.

he was driving a rb'd 240 so there have been quite a few speculations as to what lead to the crash. the only thing that is certain at this point is that; he was going too fast, was 18, is now dead, and his g/f is in critical condition. so just something to keep in mind when out on the streets.

I had respect for my first car becuase I built it for a year before I got my license. I had too much money in it to risk it doing something stupid. Same thing goes with the Mustang, too much time and money invested to go do something dumb. Guess what.....the 240 will be the same way. My father was smart, he bought the car when I was 15, taught me to drive for a year before I got my license, and let me buy parts and mod it before I could even legally drive it around the block. He is the reason I'm alive and all my cars are still in one piece. Except the 240....thats in eleventybillon pieces right now at 4 seperate locations.
