I have the 05 Wagon w/auto. Not the fastest, but no one expects a wagon. For those of you that don't know, there is a trick in launching the 4EAT. If you pop it into N with your foot an the brake and rev it to about 5k, the brake pedal goes further to the floor and once back at idle pop into D and do a brake torque, it will increase the stall by upto 400 RPMs
I was driving home one night and this new black Corvette pulled up along side at a light. It had just started to drizzle. There was no one else around, so... As the opposing traffic got the yellow, I reved it...caught his attention in a humorous way., then.. I took him off the line, he wasn't really trying,.
As soon as I hit 40, I backed off cause the next light was turning red.....no one else around.... I coasted to a stop next to Mr. Vette.
Remember, it was already drizzling, and its almost a light rain.
I did the same thing as the first time, but Mr. Vette was ready.......
Mr. Vette went up into tire smoke.....HE HE HE.....one more round.....
And wouldn't you know it...a little over a 1/4 mile....Another red light.
At this point I am busting a gutt...and he looked pi$$ed! HE HE
I did the same thing, .YELLO............GREEN!...Mr Vette was trying to throttle through the rain. He caught up and blew me away by the time I was doin 50.....Half for me and half for him.
Now it is a light rain
We cruzed for about a mile. I played a little ketchup. Then he dropped back, coming along side and then accelerated to, you guessed it, another red light.
We must have done that for about 6 - 8 lights.
By the 5th or 6th time, he was still working at controling that thing in the rain and all I could do was to hope he'd light em up again as i took him off the line in my 4eat wagon!!!!
I got a great sense of pleasure in humiliating Mr Vette out in the rain....
GOOD THING IT WAS RAINING!!!!
Next time He may think twice when he comes up on a wagon in the rain...HE HE
