    300ZX TT Encounter

    Well I'm on the 120 Loop where I usually do my GTech runs and come to the light before 75N. I'm in the left lane and my grandmom is in the passenger seat. I'm sitting at the light in the left lane and I look at my rear view mirror and I see a red 300ZX flying up behind me. I have the radio going but I start hearing this hissing noise so I turn down my radio. Then I hear the 300ZX w/ his BOV reving behind me not once but many times like he wanted to start something? I just have a grin ... but I didn't want anyone to did of a cardiac arrest so I figure I'm not gonna do anything.
    Light turns green and I start moving as normal but this idiot flies right up to my bumper? I signal to get into the right lane and he tailgates me intot he right lane? I stay in second gear and let the car engine brake to turn right onto the 75N on ramp. I figure this guy would stop but NO ... he keeps flying up then slowing down, flying up then slowing down, etc. Well I'm in 2nd doing 30mph and I wait for him to do it one more time. Idiot of course reving and BOV goes off ... so I dump it in 2nd. 300ZX wasn't ready for it but tries to go w/ me . He "tries" to follow for 1sec then I just start pulling away. I look at my review mirror and watch his facial reaction like ... "umm what the hell just happened?" I'm now like 3 cars ahead of him by 3rd gear and merging onto 75N. I stay in 3rd hoping he'd try something stupid. I stay in the right lane and he comes 300ZX TT flying past me and then slowing down. I look over at him as he pasts me and he doesn't even look over. I look at my speedometer and doing 75mph in a 65mph so I'm just chilling and slow down.
    I was hoping the 300ZX would have slowed down and I would have gone w/ him on the HWY ... maybe to 100mph. I'm pretty sure a 300ZX TT would have walked on me at 90mph+ but he sure didn't have anything on us at lower speeds. Too bad for him and his BOV didn't do anything.

    I've encountered heavily modified 300ZX TT last time on route 9 (NY). I was driving 55mph in a 65mph zone and this guy in modded 300ZX (body kit, and typical I/H/E) kept tailgating me even tho. the left lane was open. This lasted for about a min or two then he just swerved around and passed my car at a speed even if I went WOT, could never caught up. I wonder how fast moddified 300ZX are.....

    Humm ...

    I know a really modified 300ZX TT should have walked on me but I think these punks don't know whom they're dealing w/ . All this revving and BOV but they couldn't back it up.

    Issue ...

    I know I should be nice to my grandma but we have issues ... something in the relm of stubborn old people doesn't float my boat. I know I should be nice to her but deep down ... . She never complained to tell me to slow down though during the quick run .

    They can be pretty damn fast. my last car was a 450rwhp/470lbft 90TTZ with 5sp and 4.08 gears from the NA model. 0-60 in 3.8sec, 0-100in 8sec flat 1/4mi in 11.6@120...on pump gas with street tires. I did every possible mod to that car. Loved it. It would kill a gsxr1100 from a 70mph roll like the bike was standing still. I know people whho have TTZ's with over 600rwhp and a good friend is busy building up a 1,000hp one. Cant wait for a ride in it!

    Hey chuglobal,

    Nope havent met any other WRX owners in person down here in S. Fl yet. Too busy working and parenting for much "me" time. Every bit of spare time I have had for the rex has been spent doing mods..either that or i'm enjoying the ride!

    I know how we can make your rex go 0-60 in 1.5 sec BONE STOCK. There is a nice cliff to drive it off not to far from us.
