Well, after reading the thread about the alternate break-in method, I got the itch to unleash the beast tonight. So, I'm out running a few errands and stuff - several runs up the tach, proper warm up, cool down, and stuff. I'm headed to my next destination in the left lane in tight traffic/lights and I hear something (DON'T see him yet). I turn my head to the BBRRAAWWWWAAAAPP and catch a glance at bluish projection fogs, some tack on "aerowork", super dark tint, and a "nice" move to the far right lane at the next light. A$$.
The road splits up ahead - local to the right, hwy to the left. I'm going left and he is also. I jump on his tail and it's a white prelude recent model. I spy an AEM sticker (CAI?) mid bumper and think, hmmmm, what should I do? I don't have much experience with ricers, so I play conservatively - giving him room, but occassionally running up on him to let him know I'm still there. He's weaving, but everyone moves over after he goes by b/c they see me coming (I hope they didn't think that noise was me!) but he actually slows down for a well know speed trap. MAYBE, he's not that DUMB? We actually get one lane free and run up to 90+ - I actually have to lift once or twice so I don't smash into him.
The hwy goes back to occasional lights and we finally get to line up at a red light. Clear roads ahead!! It was going to be my 1st time "running it up" ALL the WAY to 7k. I rev a little, slip the clutch and take off - still determined to see what all the "fuss" is about [A BLAST!!! btw ], but he doesn't even go!!! I shut it down around 70, ticked off. What's up with that? Intimidated? Embarrassed? Sparing me?
The next light turns yellow and I brake hard to see if he's still there. He rolls up at the still red light and yells over "HEY!" I roll down the window (gotta love express down - my SE-R had cranks!) and he says something like "sucks, you know that's a station wagon ! Like he's mr. superior in his 2dr cpe. I go, "yeah, KICKS A$$ doesn't it!?!?!" the light changes, so no response heard.
I chill out and stay in the right lane, he's taking the wingman position and never comes door to (front) door. He runs up a little, but I can hear him coming and I shut the door on him. Finally, a left turner impedes his progress and he finally disappears.
So, I'm sorry this is so long, but it's my 1st story = 1st kill???
Take care all,
