    Black RX-8

    Today while merging onto the highway I noticed a shiny new black RX-8 merging up ahead of me. I had yet to run one but from what I had heard, they were nothing to write home about (at least in a strait line.)

    We both merge and he scoots out to the fast lane with me on his tail. A truck ahead of him eventualy moved right giving us one clear lane ahead for quite some time.

    I saw a tiny puff of smoke out of his exhaust so I new he was on it. We hit it at about 80mph so I just slipped it into 4th. Pretty soon I was right on his ass and had to let off. This happened about three times until he got right.

    He was still on it and I proceeded to reel him in and pass him pretty swiftly. Shortly after I passed him we both let out because it was obvious.

    We gave each other the obligatory "thumbs up" and a honk as we parted ways. I can't get over how nice that car looked in black. I've seen the car in every other color and was not impressed at all but in black it looked awesome.

    Anyways,a pic I've found of a black RX-8

    Not quite the same but tonight, in the rain on the way home, some chick in a Crossfire wanted to go but I didn't know until too late to run her. Needless to say, she woulda lost...oh well.

    I don't have a video camera.

    I do have two races on tape though. One I have on my hard-drive of me and my buddy's bolt-on and supercharged 350Z. I walk him pretty bad and he ends up blowing his motor (which would explain how hard I walked him.)

    The second race is actually two races with the same car. It's another buddy's bolt-on 2001 6mt TransAm. From a stop I took him by 2-3 cars up to 130mph. The second race from a 10mph roll he takes me by a car up to 130mph. I've been waiting over 5 months for him to upload it to his computer. I think he was too embarrased and erased it though.

    No video camera? Well, I have a solution for that! Lemme know when you have free time.
