We had a family dinner tonight and my mom asked me to take her to Costco afterwards so I did. Leaving from Costco I told her to hang on and we went around a corner very fast out of Costco and mom replied ... it's like riding a rollercoaster. I just smile and think to myself. So as I'm turning right from Abernathy onto Johnson Ferry I go through 2nd and 3rd and just playing around. My mom drives a Solara so it's pretty slow. Noot realizing that I'm coming onto a "rice" CRX, I just keep on driving like normal. As I get closer I notice it has a "turbo" badge on it and I see some gauges and I can see the driver looking at me from the rear view mirror. I told my mom to hold on as I knew he was gonna try something.
We cross the Chattahochee bridge ... the usual racing point ... and when it splits into 3 lanes the CRX it behind this van and doesn't do anything so I fly pass him in 2nd on the right. CRX jumps right behind me but it was expected. I hit the first turn doing 75+/- and then the 2nd turn 90+/- and fly out of the turn. This whole time I'm also looking back and the CRX is doing very well keeping up ... expect when the turns became a variable. I pulled away maybe 3+/- car lengths but nothing too serious which is when I figured the turbo was real. We pass Papermill and I slow down to <50 and he passes me on my left and shows off his BOV and slows down. I honk for him to slow down and I come up beside him and I give him a "thumbs up" because he did very well. We came up to the light at Johnson Ferry and Lower Roswell and I rolled down my windows because curious minds always want to know. I stated I knew he had a turbo and he concurred the statement. I asked him how long he's had it and he stated 1.5 years but never been to the track. I told him I was very impressed and looked nice ... not too ricey ... and he replied that I killed him in the turns and that there was not way he'd even try to keep up w/ AWD. I asked his name and gave him mine and I was very please.
My mom told me she closed her eyes as I was going through the turns and was scared since she doesn't ride w/ people that drive that "dynamically" on a usual basis. I got home and she told my dad and my dad was like ... umm you're not a good drive ( jokingly ) however my mom cuts in and stated then even though it was fast as nuts that I was very controlled and she did enjoy it.
I was thinking to myself how it really isn't safe ... it's all fun and such but it only takes less than a second for an accident to happen. I do have to watch out since it hit me tonight. I guess things just hit me out of the blue somedays.
