I had to work late tonight. I pull out of the parking lot at work about 10:30 and stop at the redlight. Its a long light so I reach down to pop in a new CD. I see a car pull up next to me and its a brand spankin new SRT in black with tinted windows. As I'm looking the window rolls down and the guy motions to me to roll down mine. I do and he says hey hows it going ... then asks if I want to run 'em! I said sure why not. At this point I was not sure if he was stock or had some major mods so I figure I have got to nail the launch. I see the light turning yellow from the other way so I start my lauching routine, (bring the revs up to 4k and bounch between 4-5k. The light turns green and I nail my launch. I nail second, then hit third, shut down at 80mph. I'd say I had 5 car lengths on him by the top of second and he doesn't get any back by the time we shut down. So I slow down and pull into a gas station, he follows. We talk for about 1/2 hour and he was a very cool guy. He asked me my mods and just didn't understand how I wooped his arse so bad. He was 100% stock. I asked him if he wanted to go from a 20mph roll on the HWY but he said no and I would just woop him again. He said he almost got a WRX but was afraid of the tranny. Then he asked me if I wanted to goto the drags next weekend with him and a few friends. So all in all I was happy with this run.
I got on the HWY after talking to the last guy. About 2 miles down the road a new Acura TL flew by and pulled in front of me. I was already doing 85, it was late and there was no body else around. So what does he do. Lets off the gas. So I put on my blinker to pass and he punches it. So I get back in the right lane and he lets off again. He did this like 3 more times... So I got pissed. I had my cruise on and was just minding my own buisness ya know? So I pull out in the fast lane and step on it a bit. He lets me get up next to him then he its it again. By this time we are already doing 90mph so I drop it in 4th and we are off. He got a 1 car jump on me but I pull on him hard. Top out 4th and shift to 5th. I walked him pretty badly. I'm far ahead of him so I get in the slow lane and shut down. He comes blowing by me with his 4 ways on.
The first driver acted how I wish everyone would. He didn't even rev on me at the light. Just rolled down his window and asked. The second driver was a complete ass and gave me the 'ol cut off fly-by routine. Oh well...
