OK this actually happened and I just wanna know if any of you actually believe me, because when I told my brother he was all like "It could take you dont even try" and all that shi* he's usually spouting out his hateful @$$hole mouth
OK on the way home from classes tonight (less than an hour ago) about 9PM and im driving along and catch a glimpse of a DC5 (Acura RSX) to my back left........ well we go from that light and this guy shoots out behind me after geting ahead of the other guy that used to be behind me and then I decide "no F*** that", and I take off running, we meet at a light side-by-side and we all know what happens next, I put my shifter into 1st so as I can cycle the gears "manually" and its off, I start to get a bit ahead and he catches up, were on equal terms all the way through my 1st and 2nd gears (0 to about 70) and then into 3rd where my gears get ALOT wider he starts to pull ahead, barely, but hes geting there and decides to pass a car in his way utilizing the left turn lane seeing as how i'm blocking the right side and its a 2 lane road (2 per direction with center turn lane.... SH 26 for those that know) he finally gets ahead as i back off and get in behind him
for a fellow RD user he was surprisingly complacent as the rabbit going 65/45..... anyways hes got an infinity sticker on the back window and had a decently thumpin system from what I heard over my music at the light.... so in this case had I had a Manual tranny with narower gears I might have been able to stay ahead longer..... he barely pulled away and heres the surprising facts:
Stock DC5 is more powerful and lighter than my tank of a CL, I heard a terrible exhaust note from his car so im assuming intake/exhaust...... while im running I/H/E and new MSD performance spark plug wires on those new Bosch Iridium Fusion plugs................ so my "minor" mods made up for the power difference along with the weight difference pretty well from what I just saw
now back to the question.......... do you believe this??????
