Well a guy in my neighborhood just bought a brand new BMW 330 ci (still has paper tags on it). I see his on occasion driving around like he's a movie star or something. He really thinks he hot stuff. He also drives it very aggressively.
Well today I was leaving the neighborhood and I see him coming up fast behind me. I turn on to the access road and cruise about 40mph. (speed limit is 35mph - I will not race on this street). He pulls out and speeds up and blows by me going about 70+mph and then slows down in front of me and cruises. That made me really mad but there wasn't anything I could do about it. The speed limit is only 35mph and I will not race on this street.
So we continue down the road and then we get caught in traffic and come to a stop at a stop light. I am right behind him at the light. We both turn right onto the main road ( speed limit 50mph). I continue to shadow him because there is traffic all around us and we can't race. We both move up through traffic until its clear in front of us and then we get caught at the next light.
The race. I was so happy everything worked out. I was still pissed from the ricer flybye he did.
The light turns green and he nails it and I follow suit. I did a mild launch at about 3 - 4k slipping the clutch. No need to get carried away. So he got a slight jump on me but by the time I was at the top of 1st gear I was blasting by him. I shifted into second gear and continued to pull hard. I shifted to 3rd and continued to pull hard and then let off at about 80-90mph about 4-5 cars in front of him. I then backed off to about 50mph and he gets up even with me. . I look over at him and he would not even look at me. He was so pissed. I definately put him in his place.
It was a sweet victory.
Yes I know a Stage 4 WRX is much faster than a 330ci but thats not the point. The point is he thought he was hot stuff in his new BMW. Now he know his car isn't all that.
The funny part of the story is he thinks my WRX is stock.
