Ok, I was cruising our local strip a couple of times tonight when I pulled up next to a Mach 1 at the light. Rather than race him there, I let him pull off and got behind him, and put my blinker on to enter a local desolate highway. He seemed mostly stock with an exhaust. Don't know what else he had.
So anyway, he rides about 55 miles an hour until I get up next to him. When I got right to his door, I heard his engine rev a little, so I hit it (I was in 3rd) I got the jump a little, and continued to pull him through the end of 3rd (95ish) before I hit the brakes. I was about 2-3 cars ahead.
We slowed up, and raced again, this time he got the jump a little. We went from about 45 and I was in second. I immediately began to pull him, shifted into third pulled a little more and then, BLAAAAAAT.....I hit fuel cut and my stupid check engine light came on. The code it threw was "wastegate solenoid range" or 0244. At the time my car hit fuel cut, I was about 1/2-1 car in front of him.
Anyway, at the next interchange we gave the thumbs up and split ways.
Anyway, thought I would share.
