cobb stg1 vs EVO from a roll = REX puts up a good fight, EVO still came out on top
Was merging from rt 78 onto the GSP (NJ) coming into the Union toll southbound at like 1:30 AM a few days ago, when I see a quick moving big winged pimp ride rolling in my direction. I accelerate to check out the scene and low and behold it is Blue EVO. I roll through the ez-pass lane and he rolls throught coin lane, I think he doesn't see me but...
I was Wrong, as I see these HIDs coming up quick from behind me and realize he is out for the hunt. Somewhat aware of his intentions, I was rolling in 3rd gear at like 3000, when he stays in the left hand is moving quickly toward me. I see this and I'm game... I was forced to cut right (another car was in my lane) into the 3rd lane. He get the jump on me, as I cut right quickly to get around the car that was in my way, then we are rolling side by side. From about 50 to 100 or so I stayed with him dead even with my bug eyes parallel to his front door panel (remember he stayed in the same lane, I had to do some lane changing). Shortly after shifting in 4th at about 105 or so he starting to crawl away from me getting about 1.5 cars ahead when we shut down at 120 just when we coming up on few cars, otherwise the road was empty.
I assume he was stock and witnessed that his bigger turbo hit hard at 105+, but I was pleased with my death, as I though I would have been killed by many cars lengths the way everyone talks about them...yes he was racing and he was WOT. I was expecting to be murdered like what happened when I ran a C5 vette from 70-110 when I bone stock, then we were talking like 2 bus lengths.
He was cool guy, gave him an flash and thumbs up and kept cruising. The EVO is Nice, but still got love for the REX.
Thumbs up for Cobb. Now it is time for Cobb stage 2...when are the downpipes available, I need one bad!
