Kill Of The Day

I thought it would be a great idea to have a sticky thread on our Kill of the day. A thread that would be updated daily with battle stories (the victories and failures of course) from around the globe.

I know I would check it daily if started.

Please add as many details as possible to set the mood and add videos if available.

____________________________________________

Here is my favourite kill so far after 1 week with my new, still stock, Jeep SRT8.

I am driving in down on a road that I like to call drag alley because it is lined up with signal lights that are all synchronized to have you stop at each one unless you drive at 30 miles per hour. I live in Abu Dhabi, where your daily drivers are of the likes of Porsche 911 Turbo, all Mercedes AMGs and BMW M Series, Audi R8 and S Series, Ferraris, Bentleys, Lambos, GTRs and yes, even Bugatti Veyron. Those cars are not rare here, you see many of them every day (especially on drag alley ), expect for the Bugatti that you may see every week.

The classic story line on drag alley is that you nag the driver beside you at the first light to race and by the second light, he is usually on it and for the next 3 lights.

My most memorable race to date was with a very nicely done (Body kit) 2009 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. Here, this car cost almost 2.5 times the price I paid for mine . I cannot get the guy (an Emirati) to do anything at the first light but after some nagging, he is ready at the next one. Off the start (traction control off, AC off (108F ), and autostick in 1st gear), the SRT 8, jumps faster and did have at least 2 car body length when it reached 60MPH. This scenario basically repeated itself for the next 3 signal light. What a feeling, I could not believe it laughing all the way to my next meeting.

Here it is folks, I have raced so far a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, a G55AMG an ML63 AMG, a BMW 650i, a Lexus LS460, a Range Rover Supercharged but the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S was my highlight to date.

Cheers

JF

No question the upgrades to the 5.7L that went into production in last year are impressive, but... the fact that you had to include the "until" qualifier makes it pretty clear who the real winner is.- Team SRT

I love to drive here. The roads are beautiful and Emiratis and arabs in general drive in general faster and yes, better than people do back home.

I have been to Muscat a few times. Oman is such a beautiful country.

I ended up next to a brand new Honda CB1000r at a redlight a couple hours ago and rolled down my window to see if he wanted to go and he laughed a bit and said yes!

Lights turn green and BADDABIM BADDABOFF i hit it just as it turns green and he`s not that ready as i was so i take 2-3 car lengths before he even starts to roll and by the time he has some speed im already 4-5 cars ahead and i slow down just to don`t get blown by

I take a right at the next turn and he turns too and drives up to my window and says "WOW that`s some car you have man!"
Me "YEP it got some power under the hood, about 450hp!"
Him "mine is restricted/restrained? to 125hp but it has the same engine as the fireblade!"
Me "Cool bike, streetfighter look rules"
Him " How bout the MPG?"
ME " Cant talk any longer!! Running out of gas as we speaks!!" LOL

Any way nice kill and if he would have been a good driver he should`ve smoked me completely
