vibe racing?

Post by sillyvibegt » Thu Mar 22, 2007 12:13 pm

hello im new here and i was wondering if anyone else raced their vibe in amateur events? and if so what mods you running? i just installed a fidanza aluminum flywheel and fidanza 4.3 clutch kit and my vibe turned into a monster i get 0-60 in 6.3 secs now. i recommend this driveline setup to any serious vibe owner.

well not seriously raced but I took my base Vibe to the drag a couple times. With just a unichip, catback exhaust and injen intake... I got a 16.8 lol. Thats with non to spectacular launches with wheel hop and spin. But I beat a honda HAHA. [IMG][/IMG]one of my spectacular 16.8 second runs against my wife's stage 2 Legacy GT. She'll be fighting me off this year though... gonna be behind the wheel of an 07 STi

LOL. plus, when you go with a big group of people, it's fun.

mines just a base and not modded other than tint, i'd love to do more but dont have the money, college steals it all. i'd love to race but didnt know there was anything in the area but i'm only home on breaks anyways and dont have time. parents probably wouldnt be happy eitheri should be home for the summer, i'd love to meet and see ur vibe sounds like some nice work that you've done to it

the vibe gt is a very quick car, especially for autox with the proper set up. definitely want the sway bars to get rid of body roll! LOL. good luck this year! we'll both be running subies this season.
