Default Beat a Taxi, yes a taxi.

I was on my way home from my girlfriend'* house when this guy in a Lincoln Town Car Taxi Cab pulled up next to me at a light. He looked over at me and gave me a how do you do nod. I did the same. he seemed pretty cool but when he saw my car I knew I was up for a race. We waited about another minute, I had slipknot blasting on my stereo so it got me in the mood of racing. The light turned green and I stepped on it, pretty much put myself back in my seat. I saw him dissapear pretty quick until the next light. The light turned green again and we both took off. I saw him try to accelerate but I stepped on it and my 215 ft lbs of torque crushed him, pretty easy win for me.

Nice kill. Cabbies ARE crazy drivers. Either the gas pedal is on the floor or isnt being touched.

why race a cab? I don't know. he wanted to race me, so I raced him. I know that cabbies aren't race cars, but the guy driving the cab didn't care so I raced him and killed him. I don't think he gave it to her much because I destroyed him a little to easily then I should of. But hey whatever, a race is a race.

Actually I meant that your car isn't a race car. Are you one of those people that think just because you're first at a light next to someone that it'* gonna be a race? Am I the only assclown that thinks this is a waste of time and gasoline?
