ricer props

it's always good to get some props from your local riceboys.

i was on my way home from work tonight, cruisin down the highway (cruise control set on 75 (in a 70mph zone, so don't get your panties in a bunch)), in the fast lane. noticed that the car in front of me wasn't going as fast as i was, so i moved to the right lane to go around him, instead of being an ass and riding up on him, etc. he noticed me trying to pass, so he downshifted, and started to take off.

i'm always up for a good little asswhoopin, so i downshifted as well, and took off after him. i felt like i was falling asleep as i was cruisin back on by him. whipee!!

all of a sudden, here he comes flying up on me again, and goes zooming by... so i downshifted again, and took off after him, only to pass him yet again.

my exit comes up, so i start to ease up, and just chill out. come to find out, it's one of my neighbors. so we get off the exit together, pull into our neighborhood together, and he pulls over on the side of the road. so i stop next to him...

him: "what the hell you got done to that thing??"
me: "um, a k&n filter? ha ha ha"
him: "damn man. that thing just like TOOK OFF."
me: "<shrugs> guess it's just a good driver."

ha ha ha. man. it's nice to get a win, and know there ain't SQUAT done to your car. lol.

just thought i'd share.

**SPECIAL NOTE: speeds in excess of 85mph were never reached, nor were there any other cars on the road besides us two. i'm not one of those "stupid street racers".

Who cares if you did more than 85. pfft

Technically you were still street racing, but then again, who gives a flying pink pigs ass.

so, if i read the story correctly you were doing somewhere between 75 and 85 in third gear? (you said you downshifted twice, assuming you where in fifth to begin with...

i feel sorry for your transmission.

i think he was probably cruisin in 5th then downshifted to fourth at 75 and went then he got back into 5th again and went normal but the guy flew past him (better known as a ricer fly-by) so he downshifted into 4th again and went at it.
