Ok, I got good news and bad news.
Let me say first, I do have a show coming up, that is at night, and this will also help me at HIN.
Well last Sunday, I installed a full underbody lighting kit on my Z. I know it Screams RICE, But I used the top of the line LED Kit (Varad ULX300) and it really looks good :helpsmilie: Tonight was only the 2nd time I have driven the Z since the install and the First time I drove with it on (don't kill me, it was after 4am).
I was on my way to the house (around 4am) With the LED kit on. I was just cruising about 65mph on 114 in Dallas. When I see a single HID coming up fast. Oh yeah a sport bike to play with!! ( it seems like sport bikes, LS1's, and Jaysen are the only things that will try me these days) So he jumps in front of me as I exit on to 121 north. For anybody that doesn't know that area, its a long sweeping turn to the right that gets very sharp at the end. I can normally take the turn at 80+, till the end at the sharp part, then I have to tap the breaks. Well the Bike was right in front of me, Maybe a 1/2 car ahead. I was doing right around 70 when we cleared the turn. There where a few cars and an 18 wheeler in front of us in the right 2 lanes on 121.
So I down shifted into 4th and slammed on the Gas. :shiftdrive: The revs jumped (I think I got the jump on him) as I moved all the way over to the left lane (121 is 5 lanes wide at this point). As I was switching lanes, he hit it, and popped a wheelie. Then He Pulled into the lane I was in, about a car length ahead of me, dropped back to two wheels and tucked down. I red lined it 4th, power shifted into 5th (not sure where I shifted out of 5th) then into 6th. At this time I was on his ass. I let off around 140mph with him about 10 feet in front of me (and I was slowly gaining). He slowed down as I did, got to my Passenger side window, lifted his helmet, and asked if I had a Twin Turbos!! I said No. He acted like He did not believe me, but gave me a thumbs up anyways, and got of at the next exit.
I just cruised the rest of the way home thinking, **** I thought he would smoke me. I can't believe I almost had him. The ricers are right!!! LED Lights do make you faster!!! :doh: [attachmentid=8113]
