I was being sarcastic. There is no way an SL65 could beat an Enzo, is what I was really saying.

If he actually did beat an Enzo he probable just flew by with the Enzo going sixty and he flew by going 90 or so and said he beat him that or they werent actually racing this of course is assuming he did actually see one. In conclusion I agree what a dumb a**

Lucky b*stard! The only way you could have REALLY beat an Enzo in a race, was if he stayed in first gear the whole time, or if he didn't know how to drive a stickshift and the transmission fell out of his $650,000 supercar. Imagine the cost to replace a tranny in an Enzo! Ouch!


I agree that he's full of crap, but I wasn't aware that Enzo's had a stickshift

It comes with the standard shift paddles, but it can come with a stick shift, if that's what you really want.

Because the anonymity of the web allows it. it's been a real boon to the low self esteem people among us, who know can live out their fantasies online. Too bad most of them are retarded and are so blatantly lying about it... OR they lie about it like this just to see if people will respond. And again, teh anonymity of the web allows them to be that rude as they know there is no permanent repercussions from being so blatantly antisocial. It wouldn't be so prevalent if it was blatantly obvious where they lived and easy to send someone over to beat the living sh*t out of them...

We should make the IP/location of the poster publicly known, it would get rid of a lot of posts like these.

Yeah. A string of mask IP addresses will do wonders.

If you set it up the right way, it at least takes away the anonyminity, which is apparently why the liers do this.

Wow, here's osm ecuriosity for you guys...

How is it that he hasn't posted a reply yet?

This is assuming that I have read all of it which I did but still I may have missed a post...

__________________________________________________ ____________

Anywho...

Ok I got some questions for you kid...

You say you're dad bought the SL65 AMG...

Were you the one driving the car or was it your dad when you suppossedly raced the Enzo?

How much did you or your dad beat this Enzo by?

What was the distant this "race" took place, a 1/4 mile, an 1/8 of a mile, a full mile etc???

Did you race down the local street or on the back roads?

Was the race in a straight line or in curves(like in the back roads)?

And finally...

Was it during the day or night?

I'm not sure if you said you raced at night or day and I'm sure as hell not goign to look because right after this post I'm heading out of this computer lab and straight to my house...

I'll check up on you in a few days kid...

Why are Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, etc... changing to paddle shifts now? The conventional stickshift worked great, but we seem to be going through a transmission revolution. Are paddle shifters the future of gear selectors?

It's because with the paddle shift technology around today, you can change gears in something amzing like.040 secs. And with the shifter right there on the wheel, you can have both hands on the wheel when you need to change gears in extreme driving comditions.

ay yup, the ferrari f430 makes it's gear changes in 140 milliseconds. That's .140 seconds. Ferrari claims that this time also includes clutch in/clutch out time. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy faster.

Just a thought.. but maybe he's doing this for kicks and is laughing at how mad and serious some of you guys are getting.

Or maybe he was hoping that we'd all be "OMG COOL REALLY!?"
