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
This makes me want to invest in a good radar detector.... lol. Never trusted them in the past but i guess they work.

Was is a newer camaro? ZL1 are beasts lol

Yup, I believe its the LT4 from the new Corvette Z06... 6.2l v8 supercharged. No joke at all

This is very true.

I have the valentine one, eventhough it will detect laser, it is usually too late when it goes off for laser, the cop already clocked you.

Yea, the only good thing about the laser detector on a V1 is if he shoots someone else first and it happens to see it, then you might have a chance to slow down beforehand.

IKR, that had happened to me so many times, thats why I try to keep off the fast lane and NEVER be the fastest car on the road.

Sometimes you just have to take that chance but absolutely agree. I'm in Ohio and the staties are just ruthless about ticketing for speeding.

My old APR stage 2 MKV GTI smoked a modded 350z from a 60 roll, as well as an s2000 and a rsx type s with kpro and full bolt ons....then again I did brake boost lol

On the way home with a lap full of McDonalds drinks and the girl friend piloting the gli we come across the neighborhood drag car. Kid who lives a couple houses down who is forever speeding up and down the street in his 90s BMW. Total shit box layered in stickers and slammed to the max.

Pulls out of a parking lot onto the main road and comes up next to us and guns it. To my surprise the girlfriend downshifts from 4th to 2nd and drops the hammer. Revved out 2nd and short shifted 3rd into 4th and basically feathered the gas at that point and toyed with this poor kid while his car screamed on all four cylinders as it struggled to push. Funny as shit and sad at the same time lol

First little joust since going KO4. Fed the gap juice to a 9th gen Si from a dig. By the time I clicked 2nd he was already in the rear view. I even surprised myself, this car is crazy with the KO4. It's like a whole new car. Best investment I ever made.

Those 9th gen Siís donít stand a chance in the straight line; they need boost.

That k04 must pulllllll tho, youíll kill a lot more cars no doubt.

What I didn't understand was why the 3.6 ATS wanted to eff with me. Dude tried to put his long ass car in front of me more times than I cared for on my commute to work lst week. It's a 60 limit and traffic was doing 80 and thick and this fool is switching lanes back in forth everywhere. It's not even like I was blocking him. Braking just to let him in I wasn't in the mood for so he got behind me and still every light was smelling my pipes.
Pissed me off royally. I inch up and boom he's there under me like he's a car gynecologist.
So when we finally made it to the on ramp of the 400 I tapped the breaks lightly downed it to 3rd and left him. I knew I didn't have anything but surprise to beat him but by the time he caught me I was already at hwy 7 and waving at his punk ass and he's giving me sign language lol

Next morning...would you believe he's actually in the car next to me again on Langstaff. Lol... wouldn't look over at me though chuckle
