Winding down after a steak and a beer....read, heaven....

Leaving an adjoining town in the network of adjoining towns in the smokey little towns that surround Groton....Camero is right on my a$$.

(Insert Scarface/Al Pacino voice.....) So, you wanna play with me, you think you're going to get a piece of me...Well, say hello to my little FRIENDS....twin turbos!!!! :punch: :punch:

We pull up to a light, but their is traffic in front of him. He has two passengers with him and they are all staring like 16 year olds at an ALL Nude bar. I immediatly ask the driver if he wants to go for a run??!! Of course, with two buddies in his ride, he can't turn down the challenge!!

So, we are trying to find a place to get a good run in, since I am basically clueless to the roads around here right now, I ask him where we can get a run in and tell him I will follow him. He proceeds to make a few mesmorizing turns left and right then we are at the throat of a "quarter mile stretch". Now, he heads out in front of me, I drive over to his left and line up.

Waiting, waiting, waiting,....(takes me back to that first time when you are about to go in for a landing....think prom night :D ).

Finally, we punch it. Psssshhhhttttttt!!!!!!! We punch it from a 10-15mph roll and I am in 2nd gear. Top off second gear with the skill of a Plastic surgen working on Rosanne Barr,,,hehe,,, nice launch, minimizing wheel spin,,,.

I hit third and he begins to drift from my side rear view mirror to my overhead rear view mirror....(read, he's getting smoked like some good **** behind the high school bleachers)

I then do a smooth quick shift to fourth and he is just a spec now in the mirror!!! I begin to stand on my brakes and slow down for him to see if he still wants to play. He proceeds to be a good sport but says he wants another run because he missed second or something. I am more than willing to take him on again, knowing at this point it is definately going to be slaughter unless he missed his 250 shot of nitrous, lol.

I tell him once again, I will follow you and you pick the place to run again....we end up again at the throat of the same street. However, their is a local sharif in the vicinity so we decide to pull over and shoot the sh1t for a while.

We exchange under hood looks and the guys were really cool. I openly disclose my full specs including by how much I am ripping up concrete(aka, rwhp).

Finally, the air clears and we get to do it all over again.
THIS TIME, I purposely give him a little head start, hehe. (Insert evil laugh going for the kill)

Top off second, catch him.
Top off third, pass him quickly.
Top off fourth, he is once again a "Little spec in the rear view mirror....."

We pull over a little while later and exchange comments. Good sport, Great runs!!

Nice! And it's always good to have good sports. Maybe I need to cruise around the little towns around here...go find me some domestic steaks. :punch:

Haha, "domestic steaks". It just amazes me how some guys think that just because they have more displacement, they must win.....thinking like that generates more victims for my 3.5 liter behemoth. :rolf2:

speaking of nice strips to race....you should go check out the berlin turnpike (over by hartford). and, speaking of steaks....there used to be a ruths chris over by harftord (on the berlin turnpike). i used to go there once a week or once every other week! you should go have a steak there! (also, there's a hooters right near there as well).

hehe... good one. Done this myself against a Camaro SS. What made my kill even sweeter was another member of our local Z club there to witness. He (the guy in the 300ZX0 was behind me at the light when I just left the SS from a stand-still. Then I slowed down to let him (the SS) get side by side to race from a drop (around 60mph) and dusted him again.

JetPilot... I've got a F360 kill story, but it's not as spectacular. It was a run from around 30-80mph. Guy was being a prick, so I figured I would try to put him in his place. To my surprise I pulled a good 2 car lengths on him! :eek: I'm sure given more road and higher speeds he would have pulled me in and past, but given the situation I was quite pleased with the results! :D

You fella's with the turbos and superchargers.....smoke 'em if you got em. Smoke em all!!!!!!

Good job. But yes, let's pick on some more worthy opponents. It seems the more a car costs the more embarrased they are when they get smoked. I love it!!!!

**** I need a Greddy TT :)

did you happen to have a bald guy beside you? I heard him telling you to smoke the guy in the Ferrari.. :rolf2: j/k

the F360 would've still lost on the higway if you don't have the speed limiter and your redline at 7100
