I was coming home from a drink and cheezesteak with friends tonight at 8pm. They were heading up the mountain and I was going solo home in the valley. I just got back from a st. pattys weekend in pittsburgh in the green 1991 gst. Its all stock with the heatshields removed from the turbo, custom oil leak on the oil pan, removed balance shafts, and boost coming straight off the wastegate (approximatley 7psi). I'm on fresh 92 octane, but its running like shit. Feels like its pulling timing but the 193K motor is just probably trying to seize. A white SRT-4 paces me, checks it out, and then spools and lets off. Apparently the mismatched door handle and headlight cover meant that I'm a hardcore racer. I spool, and my car actually stumbles, and decelerates. I dunno wtf is up, its like all the timing is being pulled upon boost anymore. He then guns it and puts about 10 buslenghts as I put it in neutral trying to keep it alive and free revving it to clear it out.

Man I wish I had my white car finished I wouldn't even have raced. I would have just smoked the tires for a second then let off and smiled.

dude no joke. I have been driving the wife's 4-cylinder mazda 6 for a few weeks. I had a guy in like a 94 Z28 rev me the other day at a light about 100 yards from a merge. I could not do anything about it. Even if I was in my truck I could have got him, but no. It never fails.

Yep, me too. But then I read it again and I already know the white car is front wheel drive.

I always get the guys that want to race when the bottles empty or the blower belt is off. Never fails.
