Some fun with the Prelude (Long Story but well worth reading)

Ok well to understand this story its gonna take a minute so this might be abit long but well worth the read

My friend Alex used to go out with this hot cheerleader girl named Kelly. Really pretty rich girl who got a 2000 Vtech Prelude for her first car. I always tell her that me and her need to race cause I wanna see if I could beat her. (people think I might be able to just cause I know how to control my car well)

So anyway yesterday I was going to a friend house I pull out of my drive way and im going towards his house in another neighborhood and I see Kelly in her Prelude pulling out of her drive way. Instantly she knows I wanna play at this point we are still in the neighborhood so we stay the speed limit and don't do anything dumb. (Elementry school had just let out) Finally we get out onto a back road she is infront of me and starts putting some speed to it and I kept on her tail. The backroad we were on leads to my favorite road the Grand Parkway. There were barely any cars on the road and its a big road. She takes a right onto it and goes. I can't take a right cause a minivan is coming and they don't have a stop. The minivan goes buy then I go im about 5 car lengths back and hit it so hard I hit 120 and catch up to her. (she was going a good 100) See a stop sign coming up and hit the breaks. (Ripped my tread nice but got stoped intime damn the SVT has some good braking)

She takes a right and goes down another back road (by this time I realize she is going to the highschool and I am going to the neighborhood right next to the highschool) The back road we are on goes like this you get off grandparkway take a right onto the backroad called madden its a 4 mile straightaway a Left turn a 2 mile straightaway a right turn then about 3 more miles of straightaway. We both turn onto Madden shes ahead of me she guns it and so do I this time I have a little more trouble keeping up with her. (Side by side straight line she might actually take me) During the turns she didn't stand a chance If the corners weren't blind corners I would have been able to go on the wrong side of the road and pass her up in the turns with no problem. She just didn't stand a chance in them but she started to pull away a tiny bit in the straight. Overall it was a fun little play time with the Prelude as she pulled into the highschool she gave me a thumbs up and waved goodbye =) Knowing that next time I see her we would laugh about it I swear shes the only girl I know around here thats cool enough to play with me =)

Overall its was really fun my summary is basically she has good acceleration I think I might hang close to her on a straight line but she might win but If she comes to a curvy road Its all
mine =)

Here is a map of our lil raceway

Whoa, sorry but that's a big old run-on sentence to me.

Anyways, from what I can tell it sounds like you had fun.

Well it sounds like you had a good time and I too love how the SVTF handles on the curves.
