    z28 got me!

    eh, death story

    there's this new game i created for the playstation 532 and it's soooooooo realistic that this happened!

    being that i am relatively new to a manual tranny, i'm not THAT good yet. i don't stall when doing my daily driving, but when i try, i still shift slow!

    anyways, so in this game, i was caught off guard by a late 90's? camaro z28.

    he blew by me like i was standing still. i was in sixth gear at 45ish. so i downshifted into 3rd and by then he had about 5 cars on me, and then shifted to 4th as i was barely starting to reel him in (at least it looked like i was, his car was slowly geting bigger). THEN! while shifting into 5th, i guess i didn't shift it all the way to the right because next thing i knew, my engine was revving, but i wasn't going any faster!

    i instinctively grabbed the stickshift, and noticed i was in neutral! dammit mis-shifted! we were coming to an intersection, and i saw the light turn yellow,, he went through it, so i just slowed down...disspointed - of course i'm probably pushing 100whp since i have a crack in my exhaust (i just found it today...). oh well..next time..

    i don't think i'll ever release the game since it's to realistic, and can actually be bad for your health

    Ok, that has relatively little to do with anything.

    Kind of like your other post in the other Z28 thread

    um, you do know this is a WRX forum, don't you? Camaro's are great and all, I've even had two myself, but if you want to brag about your 13 second one there's tons of forums that will welcome you with open arms...nobody really wants to re-read dead threads because you feel like bragging about a car that is not related to this forum.
