So, I'm kind of on an ego trip at the moment> This imo is the coolest thing I've dominated since the Lamborghini (lol, j/k the lambo kicked my butt).
Anyhow, got out of class, tracked down the guy with the srt8 cherokee and left a note for him to get at me when he got out of class. I was bummed out because he didn't get back with me and I was in the mood to race, even though it was sprinkling out.
I was driving down mainstreet here in town and I see a "pimped" out late model Escalade behind me. Chrome grill, headlight covers, tint, rims, etc... I figure it's a frat boy and just leave it alone. This thing flys by *WHIIIIIIRRRRRRRR* haha. So at this point, it's on.. We catch a light, I turn the trac control off and ease into it as it turns green. I can hear him roasting his tires but he is still side by side with me. About when the goat shifted into second gear, it chriped em' and pulled away steadily... about a solid car length as we reach 70mph.
The guy rolls his window down, ends up being and older guy and I ask him to pull over so we can chat. Turns out he owns one of the muffler shops in town and is a die hard gear head. He tells me it's an 04' with a whipple blower. Not the standard pulley however, I think he said it was a 3 1/4" pushing 9lbs of boost. He said the same set up was on an 05' Denali with nitrous and he sold that for the EXT (He said the Denali was around a 12.7 quarter). We chat a little more and he tells me he has been experimenting with gas to reduce his spark knock. Apparently the best cocktail for the blown EXT is 75% 93 oct (they don't sell 94 here) and 25% E85. (Which is what he had at the moment).
Anyhow, we did a few runs from a roll, a couple around 20-25mph, where he got the jump due to the A4 handicap, but I still pulled on him. from about 30-35mph it hit 1st, spun like a mother but still stayed even with him for a few seconds, then pulled away.
From a dig, I did a little powerbrake, turned off trac control and same results twice, pulled on him by about 2 lengths the first time and then about 3 lengths the next.
At that point, he says "I need to put this on the bottle" " We better get out of here before the cops come" lol and he takes off.
Finally a good freaking race.... Nothing but rice rockets and fox bodies ever want to run me.
