Well, after a very long time of not seeing a worthy adversary, i came across 2 at the exact same time.
I was on rt. 70 in cherry hill nj, across from the triplex. going westbound towards philadelphia. i had an EVO trailing me for a little while, but we were in a 2 lane section of road and there was simply no where to go. but right as the road widens to 3 lanes, we both spotted an srt-4. as luck would have it, we cought the light:twothumbs
so it had just turned red, and both dudes were cool as hell. asian guy in the evo, and the srt had a cuban flag thing hangin from his mirror. (not that their race matters, but i'm giving details.)
the evo said he had a few bolt ons, and a tune. i stated my mods, and the srt driver said he had a BOV, and spent quite a bit on a pretty sweet 2 tone (silver and blue) paint job. (i have seen this srt @ the triplex before.. and DTM was there buying an evo tonight, so maybe he'll verify its existance :lol
so i say to the evo owner, "i know i'll lose, but lets see how bad" he chuckled.. then we sat in silence in anticipation of the green light.
the evo straight owned both of us right from the door.
he might have been 4-5 cars out on me by 50ish mph. he slowed down, then paced the skittle and i for the duration of our race, (its a guess, but i imagine it was to watch)
my race with the srt was alot more exciting. i got a pretty good launch (thanks boost ramp
) and by the end of first gear i was out a fender on him. he closed that gap while i was shifting to second then, i got it back when he shifted. i continued to pull about half a car by the end second. once i was in third gear, i pulled another 2 cars. i got into 4th a little bit, but only for a second, cause i saw him rapidly slowing down. he was admitting defeat.
both of these guys were really cool. it was nice to get into a race with people who dont act like jerks. i honked to both of them as they passed by, i got a honk from the srt, and a nod from the evo.. it looked like they were lining up for a 50 roll, but thats just not my style. plus, we were pretty close to my house at this point.. and i took my exit
sorry, no one had a passenger, so there will be no video posted. it was a race of oppritunity, and i really wish the wife was there to film it, but thats life.
cliffs notes : the race starts at the dashed line, stop being lazy and read it :lol:
