    Got smoked by a new corvette....

    Cruising along at 55 mph, and a GORGEOUS new vette pulls alongside of me and starts reving at me. I know I'm gonna lose, but I drop it into 3rd and punch it. He stomps on it also and slowly starts to walk away from me until about 90 mph when he really starts pullin away. At that point I was maybe a car and a half back at the most. I kept going until around 110 and by then I was around 3 cars back. He tapped his brakes, slowed down and so did I. It was an older guy who looked like he was in his late 40's or early 50's. He gave a friendly wave and a thumbs up, and took off. Of course I didn't win, but I don't think I did too bad. Let me tell you that those cars are no joke. I absolutely love the rear of the car, as that is what I mainly saw.

    Vettes are awesome. Its too bad there's so many of them in my area. I get more of a hard on seeing a Cobra than a vette, which is pretty sad.

    btw, what color was it?
    07 RDX

    04 STI: SOLD
    02 4eat Cobb Stg 2 WRX Wagon: Wife's

    I'm really thinkin about a bigger turbo now. I want more top end. Maybe I should try 21 psi instead of 19.........

    I used to never race anyone. For the past week I have been reving on everyone within sight.

    It was a maroonish color. Haven't seen it before. Almost a burgandy, it was so dark.

    Your racing with a drivers permit with your dad in the car and you are pulling on a C6 corvette? Are you okay? Maybe you need to go and see a doctor?Why didn't your dad smack you in the back of your head since you are only driving on a learners permit? And your stock SRT-4 230whp vs C6 385whp+ and you pull on him?

    wow all that, and on a learners permit! Now I know why so many teenagers kill themselves in car crashes. Cant even drive yet, learning, and are driving (or say they are driving) a car with some crazy hp. You're an idiot for racing, and your dad is an even bigger one for giving you that car, letting you mod it, and letting you race it, all on a learners permit
