Before I start, Just thought you would like to know that I have fixed my gearbox. Also, I went back to Rigoli and had a few 'enhancements to my Rex'. A little trick they done to my car was to reverse the inlet manifold, so now my intercooling plumbing for my front mount could be shortened by about half, therefore less travel for intake temperature, hence cooler air. Because of this, I upped my boost to 30psi. Ran on the dyno.
Before Power: 442hp @ wheels
After Power: 469hp @ wheels
Only drawback, I had to get rid of my air conditioing. The things I do for more Power. hehehe.
Anyway back to my story....
I was driving with a friend in the city, when I couldn't believe my eyes!!! I saw the same Lamborghini Diablo that I lost to due to my bad driving that day. Same guy driving, same plates (DEVIL), this time with a girl in the passengers seat. I see him, and go and chase him, as I was going in a different direction. My mate is like "what the hell are you doin" And I tell him thats the Diablo I lost to when I stuffed my dogbox. He's like, yeah, chase him and show him up in front of everybody.
I finally line up with him at the lights. Theres a few people watching, staring at his ride, laughing at the prospect of me trying to race him. He puts his window down and says to me,
"Back for more tryhard"
I say back at him, "We'll see", and throw him a copy of my timeslip.
He looks at it, and all of a sudden, losses the grin on his face, but he couldn't back out now, as there was quite a crowd. He would look like a *****. So, I hold my revs at 5500rpm, the light goes green, he scrambles for grip for a fraction of a second, not a bad takeoff on his part, but after 1st, I'm 1 car in front. 2nd comes and goes and I'm 2 car lengths in front. I hit the 8500rpm (raised rev limiter) in 3rd and 4th and all I can see is this little overpriced supercar in my rear view, quickly getting smaller. I shutdown at about 220km/h. There was no way I was going to lose to that POS again. And I couldn't believe my eyes again!! He did a ricer flyby after I slowed down. Sorry, that should be pasta flyby (hehehe) In short, I annihaliated him.
Sorry for the long post.
