Well pulling out of the neighborhood this morning I noticed this red stockish looking C5 Vette hauling butt up the road. I had to really haul butt to catch up to him. When he noticed me he nailed it ( I see a little black smoke come from his exhaust) and he speeds away.
So I nailed it to try to keep up with him. He gets caught is some traffic and has to slow down. So I get right behind him and basically follow him through the traffic. I knew that as soon as we hit a clear stretch or road, he was going to nail it.
The road up ahead of us was totally clear except for one car in front of him. So I put my STi in 2nd gear ( 30-35mph or so) and waited. Bamm, as soonas we hit the clearing he nails it.
I basically nailed it at the same time. He got a very slight jump on me but I quickly inched up on him. I was very suprized. In the 5500- 6500rpm range I was gaining ground on him. In the 6500-7000 rpm range we would both hold dead even with each other.
At about 90mph , we both let off because of some up coming traffic. I don't know what would have happened if the race continued but I was glad it ended at 90mph.
I definately consider it a win because he had a good 1+
car lead on me at the start. When we let off I was just slightly in front of him. It was a very exciting race with us runnning basically side by side for most of the race.
I never made eye contact with him but he looked pretty young. probably in his 20s or 30s. The C5 Vette was definately stock. It had the stock exhaust and was pretty quiet. All I could hear was my STi.
My mods are full catless turboback exhaust
