I just got back from grabbing a bite to eat with the wife. On our way out, these two hondas (obviously buddies) were sharking around me. This was all in a 35 mph zone.

We finally ended up at a stoplight. I looked over and saw the typical ricer tach w/optional shiftlight. I then barely noticed a boost gauge. So, I reached down and pushed the 'Hi' boost button on my Greddy ProFec B SpecII Boost Controller.

The light turned green and I leaped out about a car and a half. I grabbed second and then noticed that he wasn't even trying. So, I shut it down...

We drive along as though nothing had happened. He wouldn't look over...acknowledge me...nothing... I'm like...Puh...whatever!

A little bit down the road I enter the freeway and all of a sudden he's right on my butt. Once we clear some congestion, he zips around me and paces me. Knowing a little bit about honda's I knew this was trouble.

I downshift...as does he. I start brakeboosting and then, WOOOOSH!!! He took off like a rocket! Traffic was too close up ahead for me to have room to get rolling. Even if I had the room, I don't think I would've caught him.

After seeing that, I know why he didn't want to go from a dig. Traction...

I don't know...I usually ignore any honda civic or the like...it's either I'm going to totally spank them cause its a riced out pos...or they will totally spank me cause they put a lot of money under the hood and actually knew what there were doing....

In my experience...it's never close...so I don't really bother...at least wtih a mustang/camaro...for the most part...you know what you're up against

Sounds like typical rice behavior though...wait for the advantage and take it

Honduh's don't do it for me; but, as most of us on here, I can appreciate anything that's fast.

And I just love spanking Mustang guys. Collectively, they seem to have this attitude that nothing on earth is faster...

I agree on the Mustang. I went to the machine shop and I laughed when a guy in a Nova pulled in and a old guy said,

"That a purretty nice Nova yah got dare." Said with a Jay Leno like voice, too funny.

......and you want to race a 997???? BTW......How "OLD" are you? I hear I'm too old for it too. F-That, EFF-That
That 997 won't take off as quick as that honda did. The honda's show was over quick though. His power petered out toward the top. If there would've been enough room (traffic was ahead) I think I could've caught him. He was gone before I even started to spool!

But, yeah.....I had that same thought when that Honda took off! :biglaugh:

Oh...and I'm 34. I also like to talk, enjoy candle light dinners, and cuddling by the fireplace. I even like long walks on the beach... ;)

Fred. You are one cool cat! I hope I can make it as long as you have...and be as cool doing it! :)

It was kind of funny. She asked "Did you just get it handed to you?" I just gave her a mini glare. ;)

Thx for the B-Day Cheer! :)

Lol. All the more reason to go out and search for a certain Hondur.

Btw, Scorpios rock! My day is on the 16th. ;)
