Yeah, it's an autobahn car - I get it. Yeah - it's 5000#, I'm aware. But it makes a shit ton of power and torque - had tuner banners on the front and rear windows (including a red ak-47 sticker on the rear window). Was on the 6th - heading Southbound on 41 - middle eastern guy driving it, comes around me off the light smoking the tires pretty hard.

Catch him and we get the next light. Pull hard on him fromt he dig - I let off around 115 (don't trap anymore than that, so don't run passed it usually) and he was about a car back and coming hard. He was not happy - wanted to do a roll race (actually spoke pretty good english). He didn't care what speed - I told him 30 (where I downshift to 1st still) and gave him the move - he moves - I pull about a car - we both get on the brakes hard at about 90mph because of traffic about dead even.

He had alotta questions - seemed pretty dissapointed. Overall made my day. Nothing like spanking a $200k+ car - even if it's not at it's own game.

I usually don't post street races here anymore - but i do keep a Word document of every single one - so if you hear any horror stories of a black TBSS around Bradenton - PM me :)

You must be heavily modded if your running that good against that car. I wouldn't be happy if I had that car and a 5000lbs suv was right beside me or in front of me! Good story.

God that guy had to be butt hurt after that... I would be.
May I ask you what a good 1/4 mile time for you is? I am guessing an LSX motor of some displacement?

It's no exotic combo guys - just a good setup - actually the shortblock is stock other than the cam. Good run for me at sea level down here in the cool air is a bottom 12.

Middle eastern guy? It was prob. a S430 with S65 badges. He would have smoked you! Especially if it was the new body.

LOL
