Know your opponent.....

Just an interesting link, you may want to look at before you put the pedal to the metal.

How fast are the police?

I bet our friend 'Apordes' from the other thread would beat the cop cars. His ricer buddies will probably bite the dust, though, since they can't hit 145mph like his n/a can. They can use their cell phones to call him from jail .

you can outrun a car, but you can't outrun a radio

wow, the cars they use for cruisers REALLY SUCK. They don't accellerate, don't brake, and have low top speeds (85 mph for the Hummer?!?). Makes me glad to drive a Porsche, even if it is one of the "slower" Porsches

I was thinking the same thing Cooler.

Except, every patrol would want one, and would possibly totall it in their first persuit.

The reason the police get junkers is because the government does the whole 'lowest bidder' thing, as well as the fact that they dont want to be replacing or servicing high-cost cars.

That's why i say, give them all 1970 VW beetles.

Here in Hawaii, the police drive their own vehicles, with a small blue light on top. I wouldn't even think of trying to take one of the Firebird's that patrol here in Kaneohe. I swear one of them has the scream of a supercharger...

By the time you get one of those beasts up to it's top speed you would run out of island and end up in the drink.

Yea, but it's still hard to outmanuver 10 of 'em. . . Especially if they know you're coming. Exactly right - can't outrun a radio - don't try. I had a friend that tried that b.s. years ago and he ended up with 30 days suspended on his record and a HUGE fine (forget how much, but it was a lot, particularly for a high school kid) when he otherwise would have ended up with just a ticket or possibly a warning for speeding.

Purist? Am I really? Thanks I guess. You both still have terrible maturity issues.

why are we debating the virtuous nature of a "member" that only has about 6 posts?

I live a little south of Road Atlanta.

Last year at the opening ceremonies they had Don Panoz (Owner of Elan Motorsports, Panoz Cars, Road Atlanta and Sebring Raceway) and Alwin Springer (Now former head of PMNA) go around the track in a 40th anniversary 911 to designate Springer's resigning.

....but getting to the point. After they went around they had this Hall county 300zxTT follow after. Pretty neat.

Part of the problem is that American companies don't make fast sedans, and government agencies overwhelmingly if not exclusively buy American. Intrepid? Clown Vic? Come on.

Maybe some PD will give the GTO or CTS-V a try
