Well I guess more fun is moving my way. I fellow employee of mine and I were coming back from lunch ... umm all you can eat. Well we're sitting on Indian Trail waiting for turn left onto Oakbrook Pkwy. Well ironically I saw the "rice" Civic SI making a right also onto Oakbrook from the other side of Indian Trail so I was hoping I would lay the smack down. I was the 2nd car at the light and we both make the turn and the Civic goes but I'm stuck behind this slow car infront of me in the left lane. Well I turn on my blinkers as usual and look over the my right to see and ironically a new Corvette was sitting right next to me staring at me. The Corvette "tries" to show off and jumps on the gas. I look over at my friend and just smile and say "Umm ... we're gonna have some fun before we get back to work" Well I pull into thr right lane behind the Corvette however he's already like 4 cars ahead of me and I jump on the gas in 2nd. My friend was like "Damn that Corvette is not pulling away!" I knew the corner was coming up ... long sweeping right corner so I just stay on the gas and switch to 3rd. I had to slow down 3 times in the middle of the turn because the Corvette could handle it. I almost ran into him because he was going too SLOW. Basically I'd jump 1-1.5 cars behind him and lay off the gas, then back on, then back off, back on, back off, etc. You could see his reactions through the rear view mirros like ... "Umm what the hell? I thought that WRX was a "rice" boy?" Well finally out of the turn I'm doing 80+ in a 45mph so I slow back down to 50 as my normal driving.
I'm sure it was NOT a Z06 but it was FUN. It's just more satisying to know that these "RWD" performance cars won't take their toys close to the limits. My friends knew I would have passed the Corvette in the turn if there wasn't a car blocking the left lane. 2 for today already ... I wonder who will be the 3rd for today?
