Heading back from a friends tonight, after a long night of GT4 , im driving along the beach and come up on my turn. Hmmmmmm barricades???? Ok whatever ill whip around and go down to another crossing point. Turns out a Z8 was behind me and did a u turn also.
So we pull up to the light to continue down the road, were in the turning lane. I cruise normally through the turn, and he get's on it to ensure he is ahead.
So we keep going for a bit down the single lane road, then we come up on the next turn to cross the intercoastal. He doesn't appear to be turning, so I drop to 3rd and fly into the turn, downshift into 2nd...........hmmmm this corner is a bit tighter then I remember............heavy use of brakes needed.
So I overcooked that corner, corrected it and kept going. I look in my rearview mirror, and turns out the Z8 wanted to try and keep up with me. I get on it through a certain twisty section, then back off for the bridge, get back on it on the bridge. I get into 4th, then come down the crest of the bridge, 3rd.......2nd........coast for a second as I set myself in for the turn and go WOT around the bend, grab 3rd on the exit and continue down the straight till the top of 4th. I look back and the Z8 is only a tiny speck.
I pull a right at the next street, and so does the Z8. He flys by me then gives me a huge thumbs up. I pull alongside and roll down my window to chat, his comment went something like this "you got F'in nuts of steel" yada yada "the question is what do you have in that thing". I tell him it's an engine swap but it's mostly stock, which he at no point believed.....but hey, the truth hurts .
We wanted to run eachother, but there were cops all over Boca tonight. So we gave eachother a thumbs up and went on our ways.
That was my night, hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
