Coming home from work a young guy in a G35 came flying up from behind and got right on my bumper. I instantly knew he wanted to play. We were both turning onto the same street. So I slowly made the turn and waited for him. I was just crawling along at 20mph or so in 2nd gear waiting for him.
He takes the turn and starts moving quickly up towards me. So I floor the gas and he gets just about even with me (he definately had an advantage with the momentum). Well through 2nd gear I pulled about 1 car on him. I shift into 3rd gear and pulled about 1 more car. Then I shift into 4th gear and pulled about 1 more car and let off at about 80 mph or so. He was a good 3 cars back. Its always a little hard to tell exactly how far, but there was a nice distance between us.
Then I slow down to about 40mph to make my turn off. He then gets besides me and floors it and speeds up the street? ( I guess his car is now faster than it was 5 seconds earlier. I really don't understand why people do that after getting smoked? I guess it makes them feel better as if they would have won the next race.
I also had a race a little earlier against a Mini Cooper S. That encounter was pretty funny. He gave it 100% . Nothing like seeing a 20 something year old male driving a little mini trying as hard as he can to beat an STi.
