2 weeks back an auto g35 behind me swung around me and cut me off like a dick. I must have been driving too slow. Sitting behind him at the light and he hits it on green I follow and walk by him. Wouldn't look at me lol then he cut off 8 other people like an ass just to get away from me.

This past weekend was cruising to the mall to get some x mas shopping done. Kind of Speeding maybe 10 over the limit and come to a stop at the light before the mall. 2015 model wrx comes flying up to the light right next to me. Had a huge "airsociety " sticker on windshield and freaking huge wing. Didn't look bad tho minus the wing. Light turns green and we both roll into first. Blew the tires off in 1st and second and at the top of third he had already ceased fire.

WTF Dodge Avenger R/T?!?

Since it’s been almost a month since anything was added here...

So I was heading to work this morning and am on a 4 lane road just cruising when all of a sudden I see a black Avenger whipping through traffic behind me. Now granted I’m already doing 10-15 over.

I get in the right lane so he could speed on past but as soon as he got up by me he leveled out his speed. So now he’s just cruising right next to me for over 1/4 mile. Look over if he’s trying to get my attention or whatever and nothing.

Few moments later he just gassed it as we start getting towards traffic. He starts speeding off (slowly) and I let him get almost 2 car lengths ahead and I gun it as now I see he’s going to cockblock me in traffic. Left it in drive and was a few gears too high, but immediately blew by him like he was standing still and got in front of him to avoid the traffic.

Then I slow back down to a reasonable speed. He then stays on my ass the rest of the way (1 mile) till I turned in for Chick-fil-A and he honks and kept driving.

It was just funny as I don’t know what he was trying to do or if he was trying to race me. I looked up the specs on his car and it’s about 286hp V6 and like 6.1 0-60. Guess he thought I was stock or he was going to embarrass a Beetle

I know, I know CSB!

Had a guy I used to work with want to run me in his f150 ecoboost 3.5L v6 with an SSI tune. just to troll him a little bit I told him I was on a stock tune. ran the guy a few time from a 20, 30, and a 60 and it was close til we hit about 85-90 mph then I started walking on him. He knew I had bolt ons but didn't know I had a tune. he thought his f150 was so badass. just mainly ran him to shut his mouth due to him constantly talking shit.

What stage are you? 30-95/100 mph is the strong zone for a stage 2, kinda surprised he hung close if you are in fact stage 2.

I beat a black Audi pretty bad yesterday. Debadged and looked like an A4, about 3-5yrs old. He had an exhaust but I don't know if other mods.

They can be pretty damn quick. I've become friends with a guy that has one after I ran him and beat up on him a little. He told me his list of mods, half of which I forget, but he said he's around 500hp.
When we ran, 3rd gear I walked away, 4th gear it turned into buses. He was dumbfounded.
I actually didn't talk to him the day I ran him, it was a couple weeks later we ended up at the same gas station and he came almost running up to me (scared the shit out of me, stranger running up at me lol) and said "What in the hell do you have in this thing, pop the hood!". After I figured out who he was, he let me in on what he had, and now he's looking at buying a Golf R and going BT

For my own story to add to this, I had the closest race to date since going K04, and of all cars, it was against a Mazda 3. No, not a Mazdaspeed 3, a Mazda 3 with a 2.5...though I guess I should mention he had some sort of turbo installed...

Seemed like a nice dude, he said he's at 305whp and they weigh a hair under 3000, I'm at 305whp in 3rd (313 in 4th) and weigh just a hair over 3000...He said he has a Garrett 5480, 5840, something that started with a 5 and had a 4 and an 8 in it
We ran from basically 30mph to 80 (all the road we had available) and it was dead even the whole way. He said that he felt like if he started in 3rd he'd have ended up pulling me at the end, but based on how the run was going, I think it would have stayed dead even.

I ran a new f-sport gs350 lexus on the highway. Wife and i were on the way to the mall and she was engulfed in bookface. I ran him up to 120 and let off the gas all the way. He caught up and i stomped it again caught him at about 135 and he wanted to keep pushing. I let him go, cant kill both my kids parents. I was stage 1 with dp.

Holy balls, I lost one

Doesn't happen too often, but I can't complain about this one. S55 AMG, supercharged version.

Two runs, first from 50-100 and then had to shut it down, we were dead even.
Second run was second gear, 20mph, he took the hit, I spun immediately and lost a car and a half to two cars on him, and then it was dead even until we shut down somewhere in the 130 range (I was well into 5th).

Checked specs, and we are nearly dead even power to weight.

S55 8.7755lbs per hp
Me 8.779lbs per hp

Sounds accurate. Damn FWD and it's incessant spinning in 2nd gear

I rarely run in to any fun cars and even when I do they never want to play

Got a MKVII R that wanted to show off Saturday morning getting on to the local highway. We both got on at the same time (me behind him) and had a clear path all the way up the ramp

This was my first time running a Golf R of any gen

It was fun hurting some feels first thing in the morning as I easily kept right with him without ever getting to WOT nor getting real close to Redline. It was easy to see he was butt hurt as he got way over and dropped almost 20mph once we merged on to the highway. Never would come anywhere close to me again as I slowed down hoping he would want to run again

Next time I wanna try a side by side to see how I do. This was from a dig and I spun a descent amount at first (have lsd)

I know he was stock but still... mustíve been a bad driver? He was really trying which made it all the more fun for me

How have you guys done against Rís?

Well... ran a camaro the other day... Iíd say I kept up pretty good till 100... then he started pulling buses on me...

So... I got up to 150, radar detector went off like crazy, I slammed on my brakes and he kept pulling away...

5 seconds later... I see cops light... and I passed him on the side of the freeway being pulled over by the cops...

I guess thatís a win for me right? Lol

Oh btw, his plate was something like ZL1CIUS, so I googled it and figure out why I got my ass handed to me lol

Even at stage 2 I'd be reluctant to start racing anyone at 60 (unless it's something comparable). With our ko3 the instant boost is our friend but we pay the price up top. Ideal range 30-90, maybe 100. Hit it early, hit it quick then shut it down before they pass you lol.
