    Ricer education time!

    Well I was driving to the rink last night and I was on the main drag in my town, which nothing EVER happens on, I have had maybe 3 people in my 11 years of driving try and race me, once with the STi and now twice in my Cobra. Well I was on my way to the rink and I stopped at a light and next to me in the left lane was a late 90's to early 2000's Eclipse, Black. You know, the one that really looks like a chick's car (3rd gen). It had an exhaust and that is all I noticed, I don't know crap about those cars, but I do know it is pretty much useless compared to mine.
    So anyway, I pull up next to him, and I stop at the light and I don't even bother looking over because I figured the dude knew his role, I was wrong. The light turned green and I took off normal. At about 5 mph I was a half car ahead and then I hear him punch it hard and go flying by me, I laughed and let him have his glory, and continued on to the next light.
    Of course he is sitting at the next red light, because he "killed me" so as I am pulling into the light with the car in Neutral, the light turns green, I lazily put it into 2nd, and drive normal, at about 10 mph. Well I hear my new buddy jam the gas pedal again, to try and show me once again he is king of the road. The second I hear him, I rolled into the gas pretty hard in 2nd. Well the rest is obvious, I put about 5 cars (probably more) on my way to 60 mph, I never took the car out of 2nd gear, lol.
    What was the kid thinking? I don't know. Maybe he thought he could take a Mustang, or maybe he knew he would be slaughtered by a Cobra and wanted to see it go, I will never know. I don't think he was ready for an earful (he had his window down) of my SLP LoudMouth I catback, that must have sucked for him.

    I know what you mean about not getting challenges. My mustang, my evo and my wrx never get any challenges. But back when I drove a pos plymouth neon, everybody was a tough guy.

    Nice kill, but be careful of DSM cars. They can be made crazily fast...

    Yea, sorry for the a$$hole comment. I was hung over and your post came across as quite anti-import. There are GSX's out there that will slaughter cobras. Also I'm inherently prejudiced against mustangs as the "people" who drive them around here are mostly pompous pricks. The cobra is an awesome performer for the money and has incredible mod potential. I just have had bad experiences with blue oval quality and will always abhor fords.

    Don't worry about. I know there are some quick DSMs but this guy was a 3rd gen aka "the garbage gen".

    Thanks for the compliments on the car guys. I may be getting rid of her, and I will miss it if I do.
