I was with my gf coming home and this jeep cheroke comes up slowly next to me as we are coming up to a red light. My gf notices they are looking at my car. I didn't bother looking at them. Well, I guess they were looking at her though...You know they trying to hit on a girl thing...boggle. So, I look over and he's making some hand jestures. I roll down the window to say what's up...he rolls his down...
He says, hey wanna race. I get this confused look on my face. First off, I don't race. Had my car 9 months and haven't raced once (well, not officially). He said his jeep was all stock, slow as hell...And still wanted to race. I said, uhhh, ok. I figured I'd go half throttle and still kill him. (btw I'm all stock as well)
I think they noticed the front of my car (morettes and STI scoop tend to make it look a bit more aggressive) as well as the liscence plate "sleeper rex".
Anyways I agree and they seem all excited. They make it a point to tell me it's 100% stock. Ok..fine with me.
Light turns green and I don't even bother launching...rev to 1k and slip the clutch just enough to keep from stalling
Well, he takes off...and pretty darn fast I might add. The thing sounded like a broken fog horn. I doubt it was stock.
Anyways, I did have it floored...I just needed to wait for boost...
Boost hits and I race past him. I find second gear and take it easy, wondering if he's still around. Oh...He was...Go full throttle in second as well. Now I'm about 1 car ahead of him...not much.
I shut it down after that...Speed limit was 50 and we were going 60. Well, he flies past me. I catch up and say nice run. He says to me, "honest, it's all stock." I might believe him if he wasn't so intent on telling me every 30 seconds.
Ah well...Put a Jeep Cheroke on my list of kills (oh wait I don't have a list). How pathetic is that? HAH.
I wonder why the guy even bothered...Probably to humiliate me in front of my gf...not that I would have cared if I lost. I don't even think the guys knew what my car had (hp wise). He looked at it and said "subaru all wheel drive, eh," just before he asked me to race.
Anyways, this is getting long...and it's not very exciting either. Just wanted to vent my excitement
