Drove a Mitsubishi 3000GT Vr-4

all i can say is turbo lag like none other...but...its faster then shit. Brakes are OK. Handles pretty good, although it wasnt my car so i wasnt pushing it handling wise.

heres the story. I was working with my dad at a doctors house. He cam home to change his shoes because he wasnt comfortable i guess. He asks me if i could od him a favor and drive his other car back from the hospital cause it was there and he didnt have anyone to bring it home for him.

So he drives me to the hospital, tells me the car was just serviced and gives me the keys. I start it up, sounds like a normal car. He waves me goodbye and im off. I let it warm up a little before i throttle it. Then i slowly work my way up to full thorttle. HOLY SHIT. Twin Turbo for the win. There was a 1sec turbo lag...but when it got over that i swear i was flying.

Got it up to 80mph-ish on an uphill strech. TOok some turns, but like i said i didnt push it for obvious reasons. I was expecting more from the brakes...but speed wise it hauls.

Not sure what year it was...but the 0-60 is estimated at 5.5ish from what i read.

The interior sucked, the ride was mediocur and some what stiff.


Yea thats it.


Amazing.

When I was in HS, a fellow classmate got himself a 97 3000Gt SL. Automatic, he liked it but beat the shit out of it, he paid $19k for it. Offered to sell it to me for $15k after a few months of having it.... ah... hell no. Don't know what he did to it.....

I was into them, but I grew out of it real fast when I got my 190E.... then later.. my current E46.

A friend in college had a 91 3000GT. I think it had upwards of 200,000 mi on the clock. The tranny finnally died and he got a 330ci.. go figure.

i think this has inspired me to SC or turbo(..or both) one of my cars when i got the money. I love the rapid pull. Its intense. Love the feeling. The porsche had it..but no where close to this.

Turbo FTW..kinda

he needs to take off the first turbo and put on a smaller one to get rid of some of the turbo lag....
