Default Fun times on the QEW!!!!

Took another trip to ON this past weekend. Met with Jim and had some good laughs at all the rice. (Like that Corolla )

Anyway, on my way home I ran into this moron in an Integra who was trying to pass me for several miles. I decided to play around with him. Every time he got in the center lane to get in front of me I hit the gas some and he had to get right back behind me. He tried at least 10 times, each time going into the center lane, even when a car was right in front of him. Like he was going anywhere...idiot. What a fun stretch of road to burn some rice! A few bursts up to 150-165 and this Integra was left wishing he had some balls.

Also, some big a$$ Ford Econoline van was literally on my a$$...I'd say less than 10 feet behind me going 120. He tried to pass me like the Integra, actually it was faster This guy was stupid...I had to get up to ~170 before he quit. I love this car on the highway.

(yes those are kms/h )

lol...that Corolla...oh my goodness. That was a disaster.

Good job on the Integra, I have a similar story dude. Tonight I was heading down the Gardiner Expressway into the city. This 1.7 EL was being a total dick. Lane steals with no signals, tailgating, hard braking etc. To make the matters worst the roads were very wet. He made the mistake of almost cutting me off.

So, I let him go, he made a 3 lane change-no signal...I had enough. Tracked him down...easily. Gave him High beams...take that asshat then passed him from the right lane into the center lane and boxed him in, for 2km. The ironic thing was, the car that was helping me to box him in was one of the same cars that had been vicitmized by this idiot.

What is it with Acura drivers???? doesn't it sound so much more impressive in Metric?

165

Just have to be real careful with some of those underpowered rice mobiles.
They may not be as quick but most aren't limited like us to 180 or 210 kph.
Give some a long enough stretch (and some balls behind the wheel) and they may run you down and blow by at 240 kph.
....unless of course you have had your PCM limiter removed.

How can I do that? Well I may not do it but I'm curious as to how, and what else I should do if anything.

Computer chip or reburn is the only way. Jetchip might make something for your year. I know with mine, the only way is a reburn. I have to wait until I do my other mods first.....and wear out my tires and replace them with some high speed Z rated booties.

Most competition I find, chicken out once they get up to 180 but there are a few who are wise to our limitations and will push it just to prove a point. Usually only happens on the long straight multi-lane highways.

ya I've run into some that didn't back down easily, they never passed me until I let them because I wasn't about to get in an accident. I'll let them burn they're shi**y VTEC.

My friends Civic with a B18C(Japanese Integra) engine is limited to 125mph. Most of those little 4s take a looooooong stretch of road to even get close to their top end.
