Ran an SS last night... (ephrata PA)
Was heading down a 4 lane road that goes through town, a blue SS pulls out of a shopping center ahead of me and gets on it as I got closer (about 3 car lg behind), so I figure I'll give him a run. I pulled slightly through most of 2nd seemed to even out at the top. I shifted to 3rd to continue my momentum (figured I'd REALLY start to pull now...) but he hit the breaks as soon as I shifted, I just let off and cruise past him (he had caught up to traffic). He jumps in behind me and we pass traffic, but the road goes to 2 lanes at this point. We're stuck behind some traffic so I try to slow down to give us room for another go, but traffic slows down with us (looked like someone was trying to make a turn but wasn't sure where to go?).
I flash the turn signal quickly to see if he'll follow me down another road, he does... I'm thinking "Ok now we can finally have a clean run", I reach a stop sign and proceed slowly waiting for his turn to go... but he just sits there, flashing his headlights. I continue slowly, watching him... then his 4 ways come on and traffic behind him begins to go out around. Figuring he's out of gas, or needs help of some kind I turn around and head back.
"Something wrong witht the car?" I ask. "Yeah... I'm hainvg a sensor problem..." I offer to help, but he says he lives right around the corner, and had two friends with him so they get out to push it... I was kinda bumed, I really wanted to run him.
I'm thinking he had some work done becuase, I have Stage-1 and was alone... he kept up really well in 2nd, and had 2 passengers, plus this sensor trouble? Then again, I had JUST put my battery back in (wife left the interior lights on) and was running around to see what kind of boost I was getting (computer need to re-learn junk). What do you guys think, any mods known to cause sensor issues that basically shut the car down like that? My car just stuck inlimp mode?
If you're on here blue SS guy, I'd like to run you again once you get things sorted out. That was a good run, maybe next time we'll try the highway so we can run side by side? I don't like to do the single file racing thing much.
