Wow...sorry everyone. Down in Houston this week for some good 'ole Management Training. Myers-Briggs, Interviewing skills, presentation coaching, etc, etc, etc. Not to bad in most cases, but unfortunately, my skill levels in most of these areas is a bit above what they bring to the table. Ahhh...the sacrifices we make.
Anyway...the vette was a C6, since it had the plastik see through covered front lights. It was likely an auto now that I think about it, since I didn't hear any shifting breaks.
I did walk him, and although I was in the act of passing him, I was not accelerating super hard...just a moderate roll by. I was waiting for it, yes, but I didn't respond until he got on it, so in my book, it was fair game.
Yeah, at higher speeds, I'm sure it would have been a different outcome, but that's a "what-if" scenario. All I did was report what happened, and those are the facts. To all the BSers out there (and you 350ZBoooiiii)....whatever. Doubt it if you wish, I'm not here to comfort you.
As for what my 1/4 mile times are, as soon as the track opens up, I'll find out. I aim to get 2 sets in...one with snow tires and one with street tires later on, just to see the difference. If I get a 12.5, I'll be happy.
And yeah, my run with the vette was with snow tires, but no biggee since it was from a roll. I have absolutely no doubt that if it had been from a stop, the carnage would have been a LOT worse.
All I know is...he laughed at my car. I beat him that time. Therefore, he was laughing at his own car even harder. Deep inside, he now knows this and maybe will respect the park benched winged-box in the future. Probably not, but I'll bet he'll be a lot more wary of them.
ps...thanks to those who backed me up here. It's much appreciated!! As I'm sure you know, I never call BS on a race, but from time to time, will ask additional questions to understand the outcome better. I'm glad to see that others out there are similarly like-minded. As I've said time after time, anything is possible on the street. Even a 350Z beating an STi...although that one stretches the bounds of my imagination
