    Another cocky s2000 owner

    So I'm driving and I see this nice s2000 w/2 shiny greddy exhausts...I havent played around in awhile and you never know around here so I pull up on his bumper.

    He hits it and I stay a couple of car lengths behind just trailing due to traffic. He must have thought I was running w/him and he pulled on me because at the light we caught he looked over w/that cocky you couldnt stay w/me look...

    He says do you want to run? ...I say sure we can roll from 25mph...He says ok, I'll let YOU honk...? I'm like why me ? He says so you can get the jump you will need it????

    I agreed to 25mph even know thats not my spot but I figured he only has exh, head, intake, so it wont matter. Sure enough I honk and he goes...I am in full lag at this point and even w/that he only pulls to my front bumper, it seemed like an eternity for 40mph to come but when It did ..... ....that was his face.

    Instantly caught him in 2nd and by the end of 3rd I had maybe 3-4 cars and then I shut down...Not really fun but needed...You gotta open her up every now and then. He pulled up and asked the usual...Whats in that thing ?

    Eh: FMIC and cat back exhaust...its just running good right now...it likes 90 degree weather...drove off and smiled....

    the weekend after i got the T88 and a good tune in the Supra a blown s2k got revv happy with me. I let him get the jump then when I spooled up his car looked like this dot ------> . in my rear view mirror.....

    This was on route 80 on my way upstate he caught up to me at a gas station and his excuse was "I missed a shift"

    even though that is not a worthy race, doesn't it still give you that warm fuzzy feeling? It does for me when cocky people get put in there place

    I kinda just look over and pace them...they usually eventually look over. IF that doesnt work then sometimes I'll beep at them...as funny as it sounds. It usually always works. People though try to run me all the time...eh

    Nah..thats what he wanted...I knew it wasnt that fast so it made it more interesting because he pulled on me because I was in lag and then I pulled him like he was standing still..

    Im in Ny, but w/those numbers you will be pretty deadily. I would pull you out of the whole but at some point you'd probably catch up..on street tires of course.

    who says i'll be on street tires (slicks in the trunk) but ny is alil far to go. i'll have to keep loookin around. there is like 4 stage iv wrx's at are local car club meet every week and everyone i ask they say "na, my clutch is shot (stock) and i don't wanna hurt my tranny." then wtf's the point of making a fast car if you not gonna drive it! owell. the car is only 260hp and 290tq now so i think a tuned stage iv will still pull me from a roll with 300 or so hp and destroy me from a stop. but the turbo is sitting in box next to me at home, waiting on new manifold,wastgate and fuel system. then some tuning. should be fun. i can't wait to go pick on vette's and cobra's.
