    WRX vs HUGE TACH!

    Last night around 22.00 i ran into a Honda Civic on 395N. I was behind him and he had this huge fart can that i could hear over my radio so i go to pass him so i dont have to listen to that thing. As i pass him the guy starts to pace me in the other lane. I look over and the first thing that catches my eye is this HUGE tach. It looked like one of those 7" ones that you would expect in FnF.

    Anyway, he does a little pull on me so i bit back and pull about 3 cars on him in a few seconds before i shut down at 80(dont want a reckless driving ticket).

    He pulls up to me again and paces me again. This time i noticed the occupants. To M&M poser types with huge puffy coats and ballah lids on both staring at me. I give him three honks and let him have a tiny head start and from 4th gear at 60 MPH i take it up to 80 and pulled about about 3-4 cars on him before hitting my brakes.

    Nothing crazy but it woke me up after working til almost 10pm since 8am.

    Think about it this way if the cops roll up those guys will run that cop will chase them. Then you pull over tell the cops they were scaring you and he says have a good night.

    Uh, I wouldn't mess with a big tach next time. They usually indicate VTAK or a similar power adding technology from Japan.

    Plus One. He was probably just screwing with you, usually those things put anywhere from 550 to 650 to the rear wheels.
