ran into a neon green turbo eclipse the other day. I saw a FMIC and heard a BOV, I rolled up to him looked over and he started revving, well I said the obvious "What you got?" and he replied "$6,000 of mods that puts me in the 12s" OH really, I thought, so without a thought I said, cool and the light was green and we where off.
I'm thinkin, there's no way I can match this 12 second car to my 13 second car, after all why would someone lie about their car and then attempt to own me? Wow i thought this was gonna be embarrassing and I should just pull over and throw my keys, save my doors from being blown off. So we were off and all the way to redline in first I kept up to the monster of a car it was, well, actually it was around 2500 rpms that i began pulling and by 5000 I was almost a car length in front, hit red, shifted and on to 2nd gear. Well maybe the AWD gave me some advantage so I'll give him that, with that being a 12 second car, he's gonna catch up for sure. Well he did, he caught up to where I was when I shifted into second, only problem was that I had already left that point and was several car lengths further and so on and so on ... WELL to make it all short, came to another red light and he catchs up, I look over and said, Dude, you need to go beat someone up cause they lied to you about you running 12 seconds in the 1/4, I told him also that if he needed a good lawyer to sue the track for misinformation that I knew a couple ppl, and that was that.
