So i'm driving home from the mall and i see a silver C5 Vette (Non-Z06) on the highway. I catch up to him and we're just driving normal, and then traffic gets congested so im in the passing lane, he goes to the slow lane and passes all the traffic, after a bit we catch up to eachother im in the passing lane, he in the middle, im maybe a few feet behind his back bumper when i hear the rumble of him downshift. so i was in 5th, i drop to 3rd and line up to him and we're off, i take her to almost redline, shift to 4th and go to about 6000rpms in 4th when i shut her down. dont want to get a ticket hahah. well i beat him. lol. i really expected to get destroyed.

After im going closer to the speed limit he catches up, I wave, as does he and we drive normal the rest of the way. Nice guy.

I'm 100% stock. Not sure about him. Now im not saying stock Rex's will kill Vettes, or anything. just re-living the experience.

Nice run, but it sounds like he was just playing around and not giving the Vette full throttle. They will absolutely destroy a stock Rex at any speed over 10mph. :)

Thats what i figured, tho it seemed at first when we started he was full throttle. prolly let off after that. nice guy tho. I was happiest just to know that a C5 considered me to be worthy of a game on the highway, instead of some Civic or something trying to race me.

No bubble bursted. Like i said I was more impressed with him wanting to play than anything.

Im used to driving an RSX, so to have a car like that want to play and it clearly be a respectful game is awesome to me. :D

Yo

I race a C5 w/ some exhaust mods from a light a while back; he was w/ me off the line and I held him off till 3rd in a 02 WRX w/ up, dp, cb, and UTEC @ 16psi. He started to pull once i shifted into 3rd but that was 60 so I was happy since I got there first. I knew if I tried from a roll that he would have beat me.

He did say he dropped to 3rd and then shut down at the top of 4th. Not that big of a race, lol.
yea cus we started around 80 so we went passed 100 fast, i really cant afford a ticket like that.

Like i said, im not showing off a kill, at least thats not the intent. It just made my day when a C5 wanted to play.
