Default good bad and ugly

good: On my way home, on an uphill, 6 lane road going to the interstate, I give the bonnie some good gas from a stoplight and notice a blue 1500 chevy truck with what sounded like a performance muffler on it. The truck keeps up with me at first so i floored it of course . Truck keeps gaining on me, passes me and has its rear bumper to my front, when i go into 3rd and fly past him. He beat me on the low end, but i dominated, even with the mediocre high end these things have.

bad: on my way to town, i get onto the interstate and have a red alero coupe with a FART CAN and a gaudy decal across the back window fly past me going 80+ mph. I bring the car up to 80 and cruise about 1/4 behind the alero, which acted as a trap for cops. The cops clock the alero first and go after him, leaving me safe. Back to the story. Due to traffic, I end up getting of the interstate right behind him. We are going up this hill, with me one car behind him. I go to the left lane and give it about 3/4 throttle, enough to catch him. I come even with him and he keeps accelerating, but i never gave it WOT, just enough to **** him off and stay on his ***. eventually we are going 60 when he goes WOT, and leaves me before I had enough time to react (the L36 in this car takes awhile to accelerate at high speeds, give it a break, its old). We slow down and stop, with me in the left turn lane. He goes straight and when he goes by me, he shifts into neutral and revvs it. He probably thought he was hot chit, but I got the last laugh. (keep reading...)

the ugly: the lady in the car with this guy is middle aged, has a mullet and BUTT UGLY. I guess thats the price you pay for ruining a nice alero...

hands hurt now from writing this essay...

Nice kill man. I have raced a few trucks since I have had my bonnie, and it amazes me the kind of torque these cars have. I seem to have more low end torque then high end torque, but when a bonnie needs to pass someone, all u have to do is step on the gas real hard and you'll pass them quite quickly. Nevertheless, good kill, interesting night.

We all have more low end torque, but you're right, passing power is a nice perk we have too.

Nice kill Machomike. Sorry you had to see that mullet lady.
