Beat a 99-01 Civic SI, lost to a 350Z.

I was cruising at about 60 MPH on the freeway ( Highway ) wen this dud with a 350Z got next to me wanting to race me, I was like are you Loco you'll kill me, any way a second went by and he's friend with a Boxter and another with a Blue SI Civic were right behind me, they all started to reb their engine loud, I waited till the Boxter and Civic were next to me, then I drop the clutch to Third gear and stared to gain some ground's on everyone except that 350Z ( I can still see it in my dream's ), the Civic was pretty close to me till about 95 mph then started to slowly stay behind, the Porsche on the other hand was completely destroyed, At the end of the race at about 135 mph I was like 10 car lane's in front of the Civic and like 15 to 20 in front of the Boxter, the Z was gone, All I can see was he's tail light's. He must have had to been mod or something, man I know there fast but not that fast.

At the end I score me a Boxter and another Civic.

i dun think the boxster was racing...and 15-20 car lengths is very very far fetched, but sounds like ya had fun...thats cool. brings back memories of racing cars on the parkway. preferably a 99 black si, one of my first races...started at 65 to governor, had almost a car length by 105..was a lotta fun.

The Boxter at 201 Hp And 3100lbs is no math for our cars, I think they run mid to hight 15's at the 1/4 mile ( or something like that ), anyway's yea maybe he was not running, but maybe he was. And by the way this is no 250 Hp Boxter S, This was the regular 201 or 203 Hp Boxter.

That reminds me of the time I beat a Ferrari Modena. I so totally passed him, easy. Although, he was turning left, but I still passed him.
