This starts off like so many other of my kill/killed stories... I was taking the long way home from the gym tonight.... When a red, winged beast came from no where and buzzed my drivers door carrying the message UR FOOD into my field of view. Not one to be intimidated, I hit the throttle and jumped up behind him sending him a message...This lil' Buick V6 don't care how many cylinders you have....we gonna tangle, big boy. We fall in line... me behind him... on a left turn onto a street that has no side streets and a good dustance to run it out. The light turned green and he takes it easy through the turn and goes wide into the outside lane, I moved to the middle lane...and then.... I committed the cardinal sin...I got a happy foot and nailed it, pulling a total ricer fly by. He was onto me and went WOT as I was blowing by. I got out about 3-4 lengths and held my lead for the duration... How you like those alky fumes Mr. Viper? ... until we had to get out for the next red light. The only thing to do here was to u-turn and go back the other way...but this time I'll give him a fair start. We u-turn and he comes along side. That Viper V10 sounds wicked angry... Him:Stick or auto? Me: [didn't understand the question over the rumble of the V10] wha..uh...yeah...a few mods....:redface: Him: No....stick or auto? Me: Oh! heh heh....auto....:tongue: Him: Can we go from a 5mph roll on 3? Me: Sure why not...[knowing full well I was playing into his strength, but at least it eliminates excuses] Him: OK So we get back into game mode and get our roll on...he's about a fender up on me but I honk it off anyway. I didn't break boost at all...just punched it on 3. While I hazed my DR's, he lept out a bit and got up about 1.5 lengths but no further. He wasn't going anywhere and I wasn't reeling him in. We ran it our about an 8th when he missed a gear and I closed the gap up, then we both got out. It was a moral victory for me....this beast did not walk me like a special needs puppy even tho' I gave him a roll race. We cruised through the next intersection safe and legal, get back alongside each other while driving and agree to go at it again so we make another u-turn to go back to our game zone. After our u-turn there's a red light up ahead at the start of the game zone but it goes green just as we roll up. I friggin' nail it....he doesn't so he quickly dissappears behind me several lengths until I let out....I can hear him honking and see him flashing his head lights like "HEY!" I was reading the light....he was expecting to honk it off again. He catches up: Me: Sorry....I was reading the light. Him: Nah I wanted to honk it off again... Me...Let's go back the other way at the end. Him: OK He moves ahead and we cruise up to our original u-turn spot. After the u-turn, we line up....for another roll race...my fender at his door but this time I'm brake boosting while he's honking it off... I brake spooled to about 0 psi On 3 I go all in...broke the DR's loose again and he got out by just aboout a length while I spun. Once I hooked we were in the same mode...him going no where and me not reeling him in. ...then he missed a shift bad and I blew past him. At the next light, he shows me his shoe came off while banging gears. LOL I conceded that from a roll he'd get me everytime. I wanted to go from a dig, but there wasn't enough alky left for me to go again safely....red low alky light on the dash was blinking at the slightest bit of acceleration, so I waved off any further fun and games in favor of not blowing up. I asked him if he was all stock; he said he had headers and I think he said a tune... I told him to check out turbobuick.com cuz I was going to post something up. Mr. Viper...Nice ride....one of my dream cars....thanks for the fun...next time we go from a dig I predict an outcome similar ...yet different...to our roll races only I'm sure you'll be looking at my back bumper...me not going anywhere....and you not reeling me in. I think you might be the same guy I tangled with a couple years back when I was 100% stock down at the end of Alton. Yes?
