    I figured it out!!

    You know how sometimes guys talk about beating something that there is no way on earth they should win. Well, here is what happens. As some of you know I have a 04 Srt-4 and on the freeway this afternoon a riced out Cavalier was riding my ass..but I wasn't gonna race him. There was a slower car in front of me so I left it in 5th and went around..well.. the dude stayed on my ass and thought I was trying to "leave him" and I floored (remained in 5th).. he must have shifted down so he was hanging with me. Well, after we came up on some more traffic I look in my mirror and him and his buddy are all laughing and high fiven' each other thinking they kept up with me. I'm sure there is a Cavalier website somewhere that has a thread called "Owned a SRT today".
    The moral of the story is just because you are racing doesn't always mean the other car is racing... if I was racing I sure as hell wouldn't stay in 5th gear...

    on a side note.. even tho I didn't shift down for more gear I was suprised that he kept up as well as he did...I guess I should have just dumped it down in 3rd and see what he really had. Who knows he may have still kicked my ass.

    Those ecotecs are monsters when you add simple bolt ons. An SRT-4 is no match my friend. Well, thats what those high fiving idiots think now. What does the ECO in ecotec (Cavalier engine) stand for? Maybe ECOnomy? I wonder if the Cavalier forums are as rediculous as the Matrix forums? I have browsed the Ford Focus forums before, and read a few hilarious kill stories. One was about a Focus (mostly stock) beating a WRX. He claimed the WRX smoked his tires off the line and the Focus beat it off the line......BS.

    Hell, I lose all the time! But, you can rest asured I'll be on the look out for a riced out Cav from now on... we'll see how he does from a 3rd gear 50 mph roll at 18psi..let's hope he has something more than a fart can exhaust and a wing!

    Basically tell my story, but I never witnessed first hand dudes getting all pumped up when nothing really happened.
