its hard to get races...

ive had my TC on the road for maybe 2 weeks now, and i have been out to the rice hot spots a few times, and no one really wants to race me

i was at a light, in traffic, and happened to be next to a modded focus, my friend with a super coupe was behind me, and the focus driver had a 1.8T guy behind him, well, light goes green, im behind a car, focus is behind a car, i shift second, i look over, and the forcus nails in in first, grabs second, and gets on his brakes, i get next to him at about 4500rpms in second, floor it, car screams to life, lunges, i grab 3rd and have to slow down, the guy in front of me turns, leaving me in an open lane, so i give he focus room to get in my lane, so we could pass the car in front of him and run, and he wouldnt even look over! so i roll next to him in 4th, downshift 3rd, haze the tires a little and tear off, with my SC buddy behind me

we come up to a light, 2 lanes turning left, 2 going straight, i get in the inner most turn lane to hang a u-turn, the focus and 1.8T get in the one next to me, light goes green, then he takes of...

im only running 5psi, you dont hear much of my spool since its only making 5psi and i have an open downpipe, and he was still scared, hate to see what happens when i swap my turbo out for one with a good wastegate on it, and bump the boost to 18psi

i believe a lot of ricers out there aren't out to race. they are out to make their car look fast and be snide about it. but when it comes down to things, its all talk and no walk... a wake up call perhaps.

the car should have 190 at the flywheel, thats on 15psi, im running 5 right now, and have an open downpipe, i also did advance my timing, and will unplug my knock sensor shortly

im hoping once i fix my brakes, i can swap my known good turbo one with a good wastegate, boost controller, the BOV i have laying around, and run 18psi, and my buddy might have a K&N for me, so i can ditch the hella restrictive airbox

yeah when it comes down to it most ricers WONT do anything at the light. but once you get going theyll still try to press your buttons with their little throttle blips. i usually drop it in 2nd and hover at 4k for a bit and give them some bov salutes, if they take the bait theyre gonna get it bad, but usually the bov salute makes them think twice about what theyre about to do. half the time they cower in fear and turn off. the other half they get behind me and try to initiate a "cat and mouse" chase that i just hit the gas and smear them in a exhaust cloud so black(when first going WOT, safc changes to Hi mode which its tuned for so it runs rich for a bit, and with the turbo not spooled yet its a black cloud) that they cant see me till im 4 lights ahead.

i dont even pay attention to ricers anymore. i look for Fbodies and GT's and SRT4(love making them cry, reminds me of mussels everytime), sometimes a evo or sti, though all of the drivers of those cars ive met are punk *** kids who think theyre badass cause mommy and daddy cosigned on their car, and all of their burger king minimum wage goes into it, and its still stock but they say they take vipers and corvettes like theres no tomorrow. just ricers with more money and a slightly fast car.

once i get my driving up to par (still not the greatest, better than some, not as good as some), and a few more mods, i should be able to run with the SRT4's, EVO's, and F-bodies, not going to say ill beat them, or anything, but i should at least be able to keep up and suprise the **** out of them

Bane...dont get your hopes up, unless you do more than headers and exhaust, and an intake, i got ya beat

well, when you go from driving a car that has a hard time spinning tires in the rain, and getting picked on for how slow it is, it almost feels nessesary to kick some *** of those who picked on you

kinda like the fat kid who got buff and kicked peoples ***
