Default CRX fun

Coming home from work just now at 1am, had more fun than I've had in awhile. An itty-bitty cute little slammed CRX passed me in a 45. This is a 2-lane Highway along the river between Corvallis, where I work, and Albany, where I live. I let him go, cuz that section is usually a haven for radar. As soon as we hit the 55 section, I dropped it down and nailed it. Walked right by him. I could hear his fart can screaming. I backed off after I passed him, and he turned his brights on. So I slowed to 50 and made him pass me so I could give him a taste of the Silver Stars.

He must have really liked the sunburn on the back of his neck, cuz he really wound it up. I figured, WTF. I passed him doing 125, and the little valves in the CRX were going clickety clack. I let him pass me again after that one, then nailed him a 3rd time. He tried like hell to keep me from passing him. We hit the curves near Albany, and I never looked back. He didn't have the balls to hang with me any more. All he ever saw was a dark car with dark windows. He was so stupid, he couldn't figure it out. Maybe he thought the odds were in favor of him gaining horsepower somewhere along Hiway 20.

Lowered down to almost the point of making sparks on a pebble in the road. 18" wheels with rubber painted on them. So low you have to get on your hands and knees to get in.

What kind of tires you got ?
I'm having a kid and can't take that chance anymore.
I'm glad to announce that me and my brother inlaw will be buying a rice.
We will be being a car with no HP or torque and mod the hell out of it . Hopefully , my sponser will pay for anything and then we will have it for the 3 year period and sell it .
I've been waiting soooooo long to test these waters. I'm not talking about a fart can with an intake . I'm talking about miltiple turbo'* and custom exhaust . 300 shot nitrous, race ignition. gutted interior, the works.
Flame the hell out of me , but I gotta try it out before I hate it.
BTW my Monte is coming along just fine.
I'm also buying a GN , planning on making it a 9 second car.
The import will be a 8 second car or up for sale very soon.
