    My first encounter

    Had my first "real" encounter yesterday. By real I mean someone I didn't know I could beat. Wasn't a real stoplight run or anything, we just hit it a few times. It was a pre 98 Camaro. Looked bone stock. I was in front on a 2 lane road. I hit it twice, and the results were the same. He stayed planted on my ass. I couldn't pull. No idea if he could have pulled if there was room to pass. It better have been an LT1 (by bone stock, I mean not even I/E...it was quiet as a mouse). If it was a V6 I'm trading tomorrow My only mods are an Amsoil drop in filter and 15psi boost (bleed type BC)

    I hope not. The first time we hit it was a 1-2 punch. I jumped a little, but probably just from me going first. The next was a 2-3 run...up to 80 or so. He was glued to my bumper. We went through a curvier section of road, but I didn't run it hard there...too much traffic. I gave the guy a thumbs up for racing...maybe we can go again with less traffic and on a 4 lane (hard to do....I live in BFE)

    Hmm. Maybe he could have passed you. You probably trap lower than an lt1. After 100 it would not be pretty is all I have to say.
