Had a Ford Lightning pull next to me last week. He asked if I thought I could keep up I said I'll try. As I pulled a car and a half ahead then kept pulling on him we came to the next red light. He stopped and left a gap next to me and refused to pull up so I backed up and asked him how he thought I did oddly he just rolled up his window and ignored me. I've lost me a few and have always given props to the winner just out of respect. Heck I got my *** handed to me by some kid in a WRX STi and after he wanted me to pull over just to check out my Jeep.


Cool thread BTW!!

I was pulling out of a gas station and noticed a SVT Lightning getting onto the highway so I decided to follow him and provoke him to play. Well, it didn't take long for him to take the bait. As I come up behind him, I notice him trying to pull away so I mat the pedal and notice him getting more aggressive because he can't shake me off his tail. I'm laughing the whole time. He had to slow down for another car so I slow down as well to let him catch up. He didn't wanna play anymore. I finally REALLY slow down to let him catch up but he wasn't biting. He eventually pulls up next to me and looks over with this pissed off stare and makes this aggressive sharp right to get off the highway at the next exit. Aren't those things supercharged?

Had my first real 'stoplight drag' yesterday. Making a right turn onto a 4-lane road that borders a large State Park, I red Chevy SSR came up on me in the left lane. As I punched it to clear on-coming traffic, he gunned it too. He was doing at least 40-ish and I was maybe at 20mph as I straightened out of the right turn. I stood on my right foot and caught him after about 1/8th of a mile. Next stoplight, we nodded and it was on.
I don't think he ever had a chance When I got to about 3 car lengths ahead, I let off. He gave me a thumbs up as he passed me and turned left at the next light.
I haven't stopped grinning since I drove my SRT8 home but this made me LOL like a silly kid.

Ok I have the best one yet!!! Pull to a light just as it turns red. Sure enough a 07 Saleen Mustang pulls up next to me. I roll down my window and say "that's a nice stang you got there, want to go light to light?" He replies in a douch bag tone of voice" I don't think so!" as he looks my Jeep up and down."this is a SAALEEEEEENNNN Mustang, I paid alot of money not to lose races!" So I say"then let's try shall we" So the light goes green and well you know what happens next. As we get to the nest red light I'm 6 cars ahead of him, he rolls down his window and says "how?" I say "I know it's embarassing isn't it!!" And he rolls his window up just ssssoooooooo pissed off. SO LONG SUCKER!!!!!!!

Good stories so far guys.

Here is another one from today.

Just returning from Extreme Performance in Abu Dhabi where I had installed Kooks Headers, BWoody 3.5" CAI, 180 TStat and Diablosport tune.

On the way home, I drove in front of the Porsche dealership just when a Porsche Cayman S was coming out of the driveway for what seemed to be a test drive with the Sales Person.

I follow those guys on the highway and decide to line up beside them at roughly 50MPH, when the 2 guys saw me, they understood what I wanted and the driver happily decided to engage in the race. We accelerated from 50 to about 100MPH and there was never a contest as I took several car length on the Porsche. At the next exit, I got the thumbs up from the driver but the passenger (the sales guy) did not seem happy at all

What is the rest of the story?

Do you think this guy will buy the Porsche

Sorry, reality of life can be hard sometimes...

JF

“A race a day keeps the doctor away”. Isn’t what our mothers used to say?

Ok guys, I need your input on this one because what just happened has just left me absolutely delirious. Prior to this one, my favourite race to date was with a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S but this was until tonight, when I landed just beside an Audi R8 on my favourite strip in Abu Dhabi.

Remember this strip with 4 consecutive light signals? Well this guy with the Audi R8 was so up for it that we went at it 3 times for a total of 12 runs before I decided to call it quits.

Some numbers on my car before I proceed with the rest. With my latest mods, the car runs consistent 0-60 in 4.7sec and ¼ mile in 13.3. Keep in mind that this is at 100F +.

For whatever reason, for each of the 12 runs, the Audi R8 Emirati driver actually never floored it to start on the green light. He basically accelerated slowly up to about 20 miles per hour and then hit it every time. I basically waited for his move to hit it as well. Technically speaking, I am still a “virgin” with the SRT 8, meaning that I have still not lost a race. I know that my days are counted because of the type of cars surrounding me here and I was basically ready to get hammered by the R8.

But guess what? The Audi R8 never gained an inch on me between lets say 20 to approximately 80 miles per hour before we started decelerating to stop again. I could not believe it, the acceleration was exactly identical like I was racing against myself.

So here it is and I am seeking for your input. What in the h… happened here? Was I dealing with an inexperienced driver or what? I was really ready to be handed a good spanking but I guess it will have to wait until tomorrow…

Cheers

JF

^^^well they only have a 4.2 V8 with 420hp so while impressive yes they are not THAT great. The new one with the gallardo engine will be a different story.

Anyway the JEEP has way more torque than the audi so that has something to do with it. If you would have went above 80 the R8 would be pulling for sure. right around 70-80 is where the Jeep hits "the wall" if you will. Unless you have FI or Nitrous or Stroker.
