SPI vs. V6 ATX Taurus.
 
Well, me and a few friends go out to see the village thursday night, the late late show that got out around 1am. we had two cars there since i met them at the theater after i got of work.

Well, the other car is a late 90s (98 i think?) V6 ATX taurus (not an SHO) The owner and driver is a chic who knows absolutly nothing about cars, but she always tries to talk crap because she has 6 cyl and i only have 4... bla bla bla...

So, we leave the theater 2 ppl in each car and get caught at a light. we are turning left and there is two turn lanes, i am in the outside lane, she is in the inside. The opposite light turns yellow, then red, i rev my little SPI up a little, green light...

i chirp my tires when i release the clutch, she floors here atx. and i pull ahead as we start rounding the corner. I hit second, chirp my tires again, and her front bumper is even with my rear. the light ahead of us turns red. i reach the top of second and pop it into nuetral and roll to the light.

So, we are waiting at the next light, The chics BF is in the taurus trying to coach her how to launch. she is staring me down like she wants to kill me cause i beat her around the last corner.

The opposite light turns yellow, red, I start revving again. Green light, little tire chirp and the smallest amount of spin. But shes already falling back. I hit second and pulling fast. Slam third, and shes dust. I hit fourth gear, and she is several car lengths back. I take her lane and give her a friendly wave.

Oddly enough, she hasnt talked bad about my car since that night. lol.

Not the most impressive story, but it was a fun little drive.

One Cam Wonder:2, Wanna-Be Taurus: 0.

she will probably never borrow her grand mas car again and try to race a focus....boy..we have a strange list of kills on here...ive heard anything from a rav4...astrovan..to a taurus..focus owners are definitly makin it hard for mothers and gmothers to have fun with their cars.

the only reason i bothered racing her was cause she was bad mouthing the focus... the taurus may not be the normal street racing type of car, but she thought she was all that, and now she doesnt.

gatta defend yourself against the know-it-alls.

i cant lie...i raced my wifes new mazda tribute....she said the same thing..."but,btu..i have a v6 and your car has that little bitty motor" and to think i almost bought her a scion tc....may have been a little harder to beat

Nice kill! It always feels good to shut ppl up when talking crap 'bout the Focus.

Very nice. Its always nice to see some spi's get some kills out there. Are you modded? If you are. What do you have?
