    Jaguar S-Type vs. Cobb Stg. 1

    I was heading southbound on Brookhurst (at about 11pm) in FV talking to my gf on the phone (yeah...yeah...cellphones and driving... )and this car is riding my *ss. He passes me...I look over and see some 22-23 year old in a Jaguar S-Type...stereo blaring. Think nothing of it and continue on my way. Well, we're lined up at a light right before my freeway entrance. I need to cut over to get to the entrance, so when the light turns green I get on it a little to pass him and get on the freeway. I guess he took that as a challenge cuz on the onramp, he's riding my *ss again.

    Race: I leave it in 2nd gear and wait till we get on the freeway. He moves to the next lane and get's on it. I wait till he gets to my door and I floor it. 2nd goes quick...into 3rd she goes...I lose a little on the shift but I'm still pulling away ever so slowly. I put her into 4th and I'm now about 1 to 1 1/2 car lengths and now pulling harder. Into 5th and he's way back there...

    Not sure if it was the 3.0 v6 or the 4.2 v8...but I KNOW it wasn't the S-Type R. Either way, it was a good run...

    You're in my neck of the woods. I live in FV right by mile square park. Maybe I've seen your car around. Good race by the way.

    Yeah...I don't think they are. From what I remember, the S-Type R (supercharged v8) runs low 14's/high 13's in the quarter...I'm not sure about the other 2.
