so on my way home yesterday, I run into some yuppie in his Z. From what I could tell, it was manual and stock.
So this asshat, in heavy traffic, on a one lane road is in front of me. He keeps speeding up to the bumper of the guy in front of him, and slowing down. Over and over again, until it split into 2 lanes. I was certain this guy would nail it, and as soon as it opened, he did.
So he pulls in the right lane to pass a few trucks in the left lane, and I quickly follow. I had to let off the gas twice to avoid smashing into his bumper. Then we get past the trucks, and I have my chance. At this point I'm close to the top of 3rd gear and I'm gaining on him. I pulled into the left lane, and got even with him, but the light ahead started turning red.
Naturally, I wanted to go from a stop to put this guy in his place. I looked over, but he did the 'I'm too scared to look over' thing. So the light turns green, and I didn't even launch. I heard his tires squealing so I gunned it. As soon as the turbo spooled, I was gone. I must've smacked 3 cars on him before the lanes merged back into one.
sorry so long. Cliff notes: Z goes down from a roll and a stop.
