Wallace: Did you see the Akuma Zetto at the Wangan last night?
Me: No, what about it?
Wallace: The driver is fast. I bet you can't beat him with your IS350.
Me: Oh yeah? Just watch me and I'll prove that I'm the fastest in the Kanjou line.
Wallace: Your car won't do any good in the Wangan anyways, and yet, his car is lighter than yours.
