    My night of glory

    I was cruising home one night from kickin' it with the guys around 2:00am. San Francisco, CA, (2 lane) Fulton St. Heading east @around 42nd ave. I'm taking it easy, going 40 or so in a 35, enjoying my sublime as I see blinding lights in my rear view approaching me from behind at a really fast pace. Couldn't make out what it was, but it was coming up right behind me in my lane. I swear he drove up right to my bumper going at least 65-70, cut into the right lane and back into mine. Arrest me yellow m3, the older version (The one before the current model) He's half a block ahead of me, but I wasn't going to let him do that. No way. By the hand of God, light turns yellow, and red and the m3 stops. I pull next to him and look over in his direction. Russian guy, blaring his music, looking drunk as a skunk. I give him the head tilt and he smirks. Its on. He starts revving his engine very obnoxiously as I sit there patiently waiting for the light to flip. Yellow on the other side, we both start to roll and GREEN! We're off. He pulls ahead by a car length.....I redline in first, power-shift into second and pull right on his tail. As redline hit we were neck to neck. It almost seemed as if we were driving the same car. We hit third at about the same time but had to stop at for a red at 25th ave. We look at each other like kids who got away with something deviant and give another nod of agreement. Light hits green, I take off with not that great of a lauch, but he lost control with his torque from his launch for about a second. I pull about two car lengths in front and give everything I got. As I got into third at around 60, I'm just a nose in front. As redline hit, at 80, I popped it into fourth and still a nose in front of him. Suddenly, I see a yellow light @park presidio approaching at 105. I have a block to stop and I knew I wasn't goint to make the light so I eased on it and slowed as he whizzed by, missing the yellow and catching full on red. I see him make it across, but it just so happens that a cop car that was waiting at the red light made a screeching turn and hit the lights and sirens. My heart was pumping out of my chest as I see the m3 getting pulled over. Possible dui? probably. Lucky me? yup., Enough excitement for one night? denfinately.

    Good run. But one question: why race a dude that you say looks drunk?

    Oh well, enough of that from me. Glad you had fun and didn't get caught.

    Hehe that's what I was thinking.

    I swear I've seen that same guy around LA. Older M3, drunk looking.

    You must have had crappy launches if you didn't pull a 1/2 car on him immediatly. I raced the same car here in rochester with basically the same results. The cars seems pretty even.

    tickets? no. didn't sell or recieve one. True story. Ask the guys....i was ranting for about a week. Those m3's aren't that fast. Drove my buddies' from mile hi and was not really impressed. The new ones are a different story--I would have had no chance.

    saying that is like saying the wrx's aren't that fast since they are close.
