I was just farting around during lunch today, Had the AC on just enjoying myself. I'm on a fairly desolate back road just enjoying the scenery and two little Rboys in a mazda 3 with HUGE aluminum wing and typical 5" fart can decide to toy with me, goosing it past me, revving as they pass me, you know the bit. I just ignored them for a while but it got old VERY quick. We got side by side at a light and I hear this ferocious rev, but it didn't sound like it the mazda an it didn't sound like it came from beside me. I look in my rear view mirror and there's what seems to be a ford contour behind me, and NOTHING else anywhere. The light turns and the 3 chirps his tires, I get a beautiful launch dealing out the mazda so fast it wasn't even funny, but this freaking contour is two cars behind me and isn't falling behind an inch, I let off at 60 and just coasted for a few. The contour gets next to me and is just grinning. We hit the next light and he revs, holy crap did that thing sound mean, but WTH it's a contour. Well as it usually happens when I'm against something interesting my foot is shaking bad. The light turns and I get an ok launch, nothing breath taking but enough to yank a half car on him, but that's it. Through second he stays right at my rear door and shifts just slightly before me, and we end up in the exact same place, through second he's not gaining at all, but not losing an inch, then he goes to third and shortly after I do as well and finally I'm slowly creeping on him. I got him at my bumper the let off because I saw traffic about a half mile up and homey don't play in traffic. He comes up next to me nodding and gives a great big thumbs up soI return it and we part ways. When he passed me to get in the turn lane, I noticed was an SVT badge, and a NICE rear valence with some meaty looking twin exhaust.
Right now I only have maddad twindump dp, maddad 3ce, helix up, gpmoto silencer delete(I was hoping to hear more of the turbo, I love the whine, but it's barely audible still), perrin AF, and a cobb AP running CA 91 stg 2 map on an 05 wagon.(I have a few other toys in boxes, but no time lately) I was surprised that this thing kept with me like that, I had no idea there was such a thing as a quick contour. I'm sure it didn't help that it was currently 101° and I'm sure I was heatsoaked pretty bad from just farting around, but I left the 3 exactly as I was expecting, the contour surprised the hell out of me, and I was thankful he was cool enough to give the thumbs up.
