Just kidding C9A1L1L
I do think you are an asset to this forum, I didn't mean to stir the stink, I was just telling what happened. Like I said in one of my posts, I too believe it was driver error/ lack of will / underestimation. She was hotdogging it up the street before the race. When we went from the second stoplight after she knew I was game, she was going for it, just not as much as she could have and should have (as I also said.) When I hit 75 and I looked in rearview she was a good 50 ft back and maybe didn't want to drive any faster in a 45 zone (I am guessing), but the other cars had barely made it through the intersection. I think if someone had said "OK Z28 Girl, that silver wag is faster than it looks, you need to go all out if you want to show it something", than it would have been much closer if she didn't all out spank me.
The reason I posted the stats was to show that the performance of that particular year base Z28 (not just Camaro as you indicated, but according to the data I was looking at, a Z28, and yes her car did say Z28 on the back of it), was pretty comparable to the WRX (my car, though a wagon, is a WRX, from your posts I think you may have thought I was driving an NA Impreza wagon.) I got the data from a spreadsheet showing stats from the 60's up for some cool American cars, you probably have something better but if you want I can post.
I did relate the incident truthfully (Christ, it is an incident now! ), and tried to make it an interesting story at the same time. If I had posted "Got in a race with an older Z28, I reacted faster and tried harder, the end) it would have been boring and wouldn't have conveyed the emotions of the ... um... incident, haha. But you really should have seen her face, when she finally got to the next light like 2 hours later (jk, haha, internet joking is tricky....)
And if you weren't the "Bad Domestic Guy", we wouldn't love ya as much
I am with you on "Next kill story please "
