    I've had a busy night...

    I raced an EVO yesterday and lost, and ever since my car has been a little depressed. Tonite was definitely Prozac for my car...

    First, On my way to a friends house, I hop on the highway and get into the left lane. I was cruisin along at about 55-60mph (50 zone) when I pull up to an eclipse in front of me in the same lane. Without thinking I get into the middle lane and go to pass him (I just put it all the way down in 5th). Well, the eclipse obviously had some beef, because he started to speed up so that I wouldn't pass him. Oh hell no! I look over at the guy and he waves... you can see the car lurch a bit and the engine roaring... downshift... I downshift into third... As I pass by him quite quickly, a look over and smile and wave... 1 down....
    Then, on my way back I get back on that same highway going in the opposite direction. I stop at a red light and a mustang GT pulls up beside me. He looks over and revs... I rev back (making sure to rev high enough so he hears my new Forge BOV). Light turns green and I rip off a great launch and I'm gone. I hear him spinning the tires a bit and taking off, but as I row through 3rd, he's way back.... 2 down...
    Then about 2 minutes later, I driving (a bit fast, but it's already late and traffic is very very light). All of a sudden I see headlights hop on my bumper. I freaked out because the lights looked like police headlights, but then the car cuts to my left as we hit a red light... Grand Prix GTP... I'll spare you the details... I lit him up.... bad... 3 down...

    So that was my night... lotsa fun and my car seems a little more cheery about itself!

    Did you really have to quote his whole story to say that?
    Did you think people reading your post wouldn't be able to figure out what you are talking about?

    Haha....chill out guys. He's still a relative newbie.

    Anyways, sorry to dig up the past, but how much did you lose to the EVO by? Was it from a roll or a stop? I would think that with your setup you wouln't be that far behind...

    As for the EVO, check out the thread here. It was not too bad... I think I definitely gave him more than he was expecting...
