I have tried to argue that with him but he thinks the V6 is wuicker. He is trying to get some of the Camaro V6 parts for tuning. Waiting on exhaust right now.

There you have it.

My buddy and I were in his honda accord v6 and we were pulling Fast and furious qoutes. So we pull up next to an Audi convertible and thinking that it was an a4, I said to the driver, "Whats the retail on one of those?" He laughed. Then I told my buddy "Smoke him." Both drives revved their engines and we raced. After pulling the audi and beating him to the next light, he said, "It looks like you bought the right car."

Here's the kicker......

When he passed us after the race, His trunk said S4...................

I've had my car for about 3 months and have yet to have anyone want to give me a run whenever I come across a quick car. I've seen a ton of Mustang GT's, Taurus SHO's, Camaros, etc...and nobody ever wants to play. So yesterday I was on the 3 hr drive back from the tuner shop on the freeway and I finally got what I was waiting for. I just went APR K04 a month ago and I see this Avenger RT flying down the far left lane one over from me. I stay at 70 and as soon as they get even with me I gave it about 70% throttle and pulled away hard. They floored it and starting sticking by my back fender so I gave it the rest of the throttle and walked away from them pretty easily. But they did have 3 guys in the car and I was by myself to be honest, but I am confident I would have walked them even with a full car. Any ways we played around for about 60 miles before going our separate ways. They were waiving and giving thumbs up, they were loving the GTI. I know it was nothing special but it was my first real action and I have to say that little Avenger was impressively fast for a stock car under 25k. I looked it up when I got home and saw that car is good for like 287 hp stock, not bad...more than I would have expected from a lower end RT series.

Raced a Honda CBR600 (I think that's what it was/what they're called) from a dig at a light last night... Pulled half a car length on him until he realized we were racing

I let off when I hit 50 mph, but even so, my sister happened to be in the area behind me a few cars in her GC and texted me, scolding me for "racing."

Took my wife out for dinner last night...some dude with an exhaust leak passed me like I was standing still when I was doing 40 in a 35...caught up with him at the traffic light, he starts revving it (think it was a early '00s Malibu?) and I return with a snarl from my APR exhaust...light drops, he floors it, so I wind out 1st gear...and immediately dodge into the restaurant parking lot.

Wife couldn't stop laughing at him.

Total FAIL on my part. I don't like street race anymore...well guess i can't say that now.

Haha damn MS3 pulls up next to me start reving. Usually I ignore it but then I was like wth why not he honks I don't even remember what gear I'm in. He was pretty fast. I'm losing I let off because I hear my finance in my head telling me not to get this car impounded for street racing........

So yea some red MS3 has great bragging rights on me now.

I let down the community. Sorry

Played with a 370z nismo last night...we never got to race, but I would definitely pull from the looks of it. Fun times indeed!

Also raced a recent style cayanne turbo from 30mph to 110mph...put around 4 cars on him by then!
