i have to drive like 45 miles to work. on the way a non-turbo z came up behind me pretty fast so i moved over to see what he had, he passed by me and i saw his wanna be turbo z spoiler. i got on his bumber but we got stuck behind a toyota camry. i downshifted to 4th gear and held the rpms about 4 grand. as soon as the camry moved i knew he would go for it becuse it was wide open from then, no cars no nothing for like 2 miles. sure enough he goosed it and so did i, we were neck and neck all the way through 4 and fifth gear he moved over as i was about to shift into 6th, i started to catch up and as i passed him i shifted at 140mph. anyway he gave up then and got off at the next exit.
in other words don't **** with a legend.
sorry for the long post but as most will agree it was worth it.

How fast were you guys going when you downshifted to 4th? That Z must have a few mods like headers and what not or he woulda been dusted.

I've had a few civics, accords and eclipse for lunch out here. I even raced this lady on the expressway with her little Neon. I laughed and let her get a good start then I just zoomed right pass her ass. All those guys go for is looks and dont think about modifiying their cars for speed. The only race I can honestly say I lost but wasnt by much was by a GS 400. Me and that guy were kinda neck and neck and he just left my ass behind like he was in rush to go to the bathroom or something but hey ya cant win em all.:D

That's what I was thinking if they were doing 60mph. I think they were doing around 90mph and that's why he downshifted to 4th. He should have an explaination for not wasting that Z.:D
