Just came back from some trials with my new cone filter addition.
I cruised a few miles out of town down the two lane highway to a well known straight stretch and laid down some rubber in preparation for the 0-60 mph tests.
Pulled off 3 quick runs using my trusty stopwatch. No traffic in either direction.
After my last run, I looked in the rear view and noticed a car approaching fast. He must have noticed the smoke and was ready to battle.
After the straight the road goes into a combination of some twisties and small straights.
As the car drew closer I noticed it was really trying to set up for a pass. Not going to happen
The speed limit here is 80 kph. I looked at my speedo and it only indicated 70 so I sped up to 90. LOL I forgot I changed over from KPH to MPH for the test. That didn't matter though because he was starting to gain on me. As we got into the corners I held on tight and kept on driving hard then matting it on the straights. He stayed behind far enough that I could just make out the make of the car. It was rice. An RX-7. He was trying hard because he was taking the corners wide and I saw him fishtail once.
Did I say I hate rice.
He never did catch me.
I'm not sure if this qualifies as a kill but it sure felt good.
I am into withdrawel since I garaged my Firebird for the winter and just can't stay away from playing when the weather dries out for a day.
Did I say I love Pontiac'*.
