Man thought thems was supposed to be fast cars?

Raced a Skyline and a RX7 tonight, took em both hard. now heres the story......


after leaving my buddies, i turn onto the main drag. i cruise down it and make a U turn at the end(with everyone else) with a couple lifted trucks, some lowered trucks, a civic and a RX7 pulls behind me and makes the turn. we continue back up the strip and the RX7 downshifts, flies out from behind me like hes jeff gordon and just got done drafting me. i simply give about half throttle, let the heaton get some juice(needle went half way) and matched speeds with him winding out. i ease on the brakes as he just lays into them(i have no idea why) and tucks in behind me again. i continue driving along the strip with jeff gordon behind me ever so close to my fresh SS Inserts. you couldve mounted a rag to his license plate frame and he couldve buffed them for me.

so i decide its time to put him in his place. i came up to a main cross street, which at this time of night is rather deserted. i send out some early bait A-La right turn blinker a long time before the turn, he blinks back with his right turn twice. he took the bait.

we make the turn and i keep her in 2nd around 2k. he pulls alongside and looks over, asian dude about 25ish, sideways hat(stereotypical anyone?), i dont want to hurt his feelings so i yell out "dude, you know this is a cobra right?" yeah, i know, im a pompus *******, i just wanted to make sure to get him riled up and ready to snag the hook for good, so i can reel him in. "yeah, i can read at night without squinting my eyes". oh man, asian boys a comedian too, i like. a worthy opponent.

i hear him floor it as his turbo starts to spool. definately stockish turbos, as soon as he hit wot it sounded like the turbos were already maxing out. mash the throttle and instantly rip the rears loose but theyre still holding enough traction to propel me a good buslength ahead before hitting 3rd with a bark of authority. going fast enough, i shut down right after hitting third, and put on the "hazard lights of ownage". he slows as well, and then when hes about 2 cars from cruising back up, i hear him mash it again, i hold it in 3rd to give him a chance, he got to about my door before i was already pulling hard again, i took it till around 4500rpm in 3rd and shut down, again, proving the cobras dominance over this little rotary. he instantly hit his right turn signal and pulled off the closest street. sucks, i wanted to hear more squinty eye jokes.

so then im driving down this same main street to a point in which i can either go straight and take the backroads home(boring) or hit up the freeway for an exit and go home that way, same distance and time, but one is funner than the other.

i merge at a moderate pace, not full throttle but i surely got up to speed a good 1/4 of the way through the onramp(its a straight one). i merge right next to a older Skyline. not a newer one like a R34 or whatever, its a little older body style, which i think are easier to get to the US than the newer ones. he had to hear me hitting that onramp, cause as soon as i got into 5th he gave a nice blip of his throttle and let his bov sing through the night. sweet, finally some competition. boy was i wrong.

i click down to 4th at around 70ish, i hear him downshift as well. we stick at this pace for a few seconds, then i hear his engine dip as he engaged the clutch to downshift again, and i do the same, he hits it hard and pulls a half car ahead, i hit 3rd and whine that eaton to full force and blow past him, take her to 6k and shift into 4th and take it to 130 before laying into the brakes to slow down back to normal cruising speeds. he catches up, and i merge into the slow lane to make my exit, he hits it again and speeds off as i merge off the freeway.

sucks, now i really dont want to sell the cobra with some good kills finally under its belt.

Why don't you try ebay. :dunno:

I've never used ebay for anything but to look at cars, and dirt bike so I don't know how much it cost to post on there or how well a GT mustang would sell on there for any reasonable price.
