Well this was the first time I was challenged so I thought I would share. Sort of long.
I was coming back from the creek with my dog going up MoPac N. around 2244 when I see a purple what I thought was an S4 no badges and exhaust enter way in front, well he saw me and slowed as I crept up at 65, I didn’t even look at him when I went by and he gasses it next to me, he wants to run. Hmm S4 should beat me pretty bad but what the heck, so I gently slid it into 3rd so he didn’t notice and floored it I surprised him and get a little jump, he is about 5 feet from my rear bumper and gaining, ever so slow, I hit fourth for a good 6 seconds or so and he never got to my door, there was a car so I hit the brakes pretty hard.
He slows and gets over now he is on my lest and the window BOV sounded cool, nice turbo sound, he goes so I go he gets the jump and just keeps going I could not real him in(as it should be I am stock) about ½ car per gear. He slows I slow asked him if it was a 1.8 because I thought the S4 was faster he said 2.7, I replied S4 he nodded yes. He had a very perplexed look on his face as he looked at my car. One more go very same story as the second.
Damn I thought they were faster, my buddies GF has one very nice inside I just thought they were quicker. Looks like a UTEC is in my future, I would have had him till 120 easy with the extra boost. Gave a thumbs up and went on my way. I am very proud of the Rex, without my dog (Drag from his head out the window) I would have caught him.
