99 Cobra VS 01 Cobra

So I am at the movie theater with my wife and this 16 year old kid pulls up behind me as I am getting in my car and starts reving at me. I started laughing and got in and drove away. He was following me so I pulled into a gas station and got out and he pulled in and started telling me he wanted to race for money so I laughed at him. I said sure why not. I guess I was expecting too much, we went to a light and as soon as I saw the opposite turn yellow i revved a little above 2 Grand and the light went green and I was gone. Before I was even halfway done with 1st gear I was far ahead of him. LOL!! I just felt like putting this up because the kid was talking so much crap to me at the gas station. Little rich kids should learn how to drive before challenging someone, oh well he is out of some money now. LOL!!

Re: 99 Cobra VS 01 Cobra

The sad part is depending on the condition of the 01, it might have been really cheap. But either way, that's too much car for some cocky little rich bastard...glad you put him in his place. How much did you end up with? Hopefully enough to cover your movie tickets and some popcorn...

Re: 99 Cobra VS 01 Cobra

The kid is still a prick in my book, but at least he had a decent car to show for. I really hate these kids in 4 banger neons, tiburons and old RS camaros acting like hot **** when they see you.

It's usually funny when you race those, though, because you'll smoke that *** everytime.

Yah I end up doing that if they piss me off enough, lol. And my car is by no means that fast, it looks tough, that's probably why the ******** gravitate towards it on the road

Re: 99 Cobra VS 01 Cobra

Yah I always love that...you'll be cruising along and someone comes up next to you and blows by, then considers that a kill. Then they even have the balls to heckle ya at the stoplight about how slow you are how you need to learn how to race...ah some people.

Re: 99 Cobra VS 01 Cobra

The only reason I say he is a little rich kid is because he is 16 and he wanted to race for $500. I was pretty hesitate at first so I made him show me the money, I told him I would do it for $100 because I was expecting a close race since they are pretty much the same car. He left his friend and I left my wife at the gas station with the money. Stupid kid!

Re: 99 Cobra VS 01 Cobra

It's always the Civics and Accords trying to be a hero up here. I don't know what these dumb kids are thinking! If you say we'll race for money it's always well my turbo's acting up but when I get it fixed look out...LOL

Re: 99 Cobra VS 01 Cobra

I am not going to lie, when I was 17 I bought a junked 240SX and turned it into a right hand drive, pretty much a silvia. I like imports too but most people take it to the extreme. My best friend hates mustangs because every kid has one and always puts exhaust on it and revvs it at everyone. Kids always give any car a bad rep.

I used to be one to those kids. I used to rock my saturn like know ones business. now i did have some have a some mods cold air intake header, 2.25 exhaust and Nitrous. also had some really stupid stuff on there too like ugly graphics. thank god i grew up.

now I have to deal with this neighbor punk and his hole 1.5L of HONDA CRX Fury. I swear his car doesnt even create enough tourqe to tighten my lug nuts on my wheels

Re: 99 Cobra VS 01 Cobra

I look at it this way. I don't have a problem with a guy who takes pride in his 4 door saturn...if he takes care of it and mods it tastefully, more power to him, I do the same with my mustang. But these kids that run around beating their cars every day, letting them fall apart, because mommy or daddy will just buy them another one...that stuff pisses me off.

Re: 99 Cobra VS 01 Cobra

I DDCTM because I got mine for $8500 when the guy was asking $11000 for it. But I am 28 and he is 16 so I can only guess that his mommy and daddy bought it for him and pays for the high insurance that comes along with it for being 16.

pardon the stupid question but, what exactly are these driving techniques that gave you such a huge advantage over this cocky rich kid. I dont do street racing, and I am definitely not even close to being rich, but i am curious.

Ok, take learning to drive a clutch all over again. Probably just takes a little getting used to.

Find one of those rare 02 cobras sent straight to Australia and getting used to it would be much more fun

Re: 99 Cobra VS 01 Cobra

Awesome job putting him in his place! Around here it don't matter what car the other person has, they'll pull up next to you talking **** and want to race. I haven't raced the stang yet, but when I had my sunfire I got a lot of idiots trying to race me. I had fun && won most! I hate how lil rich kids think that since they got this hot car that they're the ****. Ha, I guess you showed him!

Re: 99 Cobra VS 01 Cobra

i may be young, but i have to agree with this thread. my GT is pretty quick, but i won't go around challenging ppl for races when i know i'm still learning the car & clutch. i hate the 16 yr old spoiled brats who think they know everything about cars. i don't know as much as i would like, but i won't go around acting like i do either.

good job for putting him in his place. he deserved it. although, it was probably his parents' money so he didn't lose much most likely.

Sorry if i hit a nerve or something blue-saleen but the kid didnt even know how to launch for one. Just like 04TRV6 said you dont go around trying to race people if you dont know how to drive very good yet.

I hate when people try to mess with your car, you tell them no thanks and they simply wont take no for an answer... I personally dont wish to risk hurting myself or anyone else doing stupid things on the street so when I say no you should move on.

Re: 99 Cobra VS 01 Cobra

You know the best part about sleepers..

Would be that the people who think you're just another guy looking to heckle someone.. like all those kids you were talking about in neons.. etc..

Imagine calling people out from a 4 door buick.. They get confused and/or take the bait. Then when you hit the gas, the tires fight for grip and the blower screams in their ear before I pull ahead...

Or better yet, sit quietly next to two mustangs at a light BSing back and forth, taking off to race each other - then blowing past both of them when they didn't even know you were there

Err sorry, wrong thread
