    not enough deaths, sooo...

    too many of us are winning, or not enough are posting their deaths so i decided to post this wonderful tragedy. this hapened about a month ago, but i have not had the time to get it up (helloooo!) here. all of my mods are suspension-oriented with a few others not worth mentioning, so i am basicaly driving a stock engine.

    i was driving back from a wedding with my girlfriend in RI late one saturday night when i see an S2K in front of me that looks interesting. i catch up to it and it turns out to be the same nasty-a$$ black wide-body S2K from the boston HIN (if you were there you know which which one i am talking about). so i pull up behind it and notice he is cruising with about 4 or 5 other cars - an evo, and rsx-s, and a couple of civics. i spy an evo and pace him just for fun. he looks over and we start laughing and take off. i drop into 3rd and have my nose at his rear door until i have to shift to 4th...then he's gone. i knew i would get lit up but wanted to have some fun anyways. he slows down until i catch up and we're having some more laughs and waves and thumbs-up...you know the drill. so we go again and again he trounces me. again he slows down but i tap out. i pretty much threw up the french, i mean white, flag. he got the hint and went ahead of me.

    but since i have a peni5 and want to beat someone in front of my gurl i slow down until the rsx-s catches up to me. looks pretty stock, HIDs and at least a back box as far as i could tell. i tell my gurl i can definitely beat this dood. so we're pacing and waving and then we do the 1-2-3 count and he takes off. i mean, he absolutely smoked me. i never even close. my jaw dropped clean off my face and fell onto the highway. "what the fukk was that?!" he slows down and we roll down the windows. i was stunned and he knew it. he was laughing his a$$ off at how surprised i was. i had to take my exit, so we exchanged honks. he waved and i threw up the sign of the beast and this has bothered me ever since. i was soooo sure i could take him. damn sleepers...

    He might have been turboed, in which case...dont feel bad turboed RSX's are real quick . What are your mods by the way, just curious.

    We have a winner! I wouldn't mess with the most downplayed car in a group like that unless it's OBVIOUS he's stock...like my cousin's '95 Accord 4-door stock...ragged out. I TRY to be that downplayed looking one but then again I drive an STi...hard to keep it tame looking.

    and about the "sitting duck", i never even thought of that. looking back it makes perfect sense now. this is probably why he was having such fun with me after i caught up to him. i took the bait...

    I posted my last race...got owned by a t3/t4 civic coupe from a 60 roll....well, I had him til about 110, but after that...hmmmm...

    Nice death though... I have learned myself not to take it all so seriously... win or lose, it is a huge rush at the end that feels pretty damn good! And it is even better when both drivers can come together at the end to compare notes

    well, as long as we are posting our deaths:

    I see this pretty nice civic around once in a while. I have seen him about 4 times. Black hatch, dropped, very subtle but agressive body kit, nice wheels, average looking exhaust,tints, etc....
    this car looks really nice, I love how a nicely done civic hatch looks... well, I finally ran into him a couple weeks ago... we are both turning left and I am behind him. Once we have completed the turn I start to roll past him and nod my head in apreciation for his fine looking car... He smiles and returns the nod to my wrx. So he hits it and and I am playing catch-up for a second, but realize I have no chance. We hit another light, and I signal for a run. I got a pretty good launch and hold a 2 car lead until about 50 where he starts to pull even, and then he passes me like I am standing still.
    We went one more time from a roll, just a short sprint. He had about 4 cars on me from 45-90mph.

    I never got a chance to see what he had since I turned into the gym i was going to. All I know is he has a huge FMIC. I am not sure what engine he is running, but I assume its a B18 of some kind.

    HAhahha! It seems like we have a recurring theme here... What is it with those pesky turbo civics??? I was able to hold this one off for a while, but my setup was dynoed to the tune of 320whp...Still got me by 2 cars Those things are pretty devastating from a roll.. They have good whp, and weigh next to nothing... ugh....

    I was on the way back from NOPI and saw a Civic hatch coming up with a big ol front mount. I didn't expect to win, I had four people he had two and his car is way lighter. But after I dropped to 3rd and went he dropped and straight whooped my a$$. Then an undercover cop came up to me and gave the dont do that look. I just gave him the I'm confused and just got my ass whooped shrug and he went on.

    The undercover came from nowhere. All I wanted was to see the Civic get on it. I stopped at the top of Third so at least I wasn't weaving through traffic at 130 and slammed it into reverse and drove in revearse at 80 MPH while flipping the guy off.
