Educated a S2000 last night

Won't waste too much breath or too much of your time on this one. The S2000 picked a fight with me. Tail gated me for a bit, then darted around me and got in front of me and eventually over back into the right lane. I got up beside him and he took off on me when the front of my car got to maybe where the back of his door meets the rear quarter panel. I hurt his feelings. After slowing down a bunch to try and let him catch back up to me so I could do the head nod and wave, he got off on an exit in the middle of the Bay and finished his drive to the Eastern Shore on the causeway, while I looked down on him from the bayway laughing. Stupid Hondas...

I'm sure he'll summon the gods of NISMO to rain down upon you. Nice!

He'd never admit the loss either. He'd probably say his V-TAC wasn't working! (johnny ricer)
hahaha!

My buddy at work said to watch out for them. Said they rev crazy high, like 8,000 rpms or something. They like to put turbos on them. I don't know, if this guy had a turbo I would think that he would've kept up with me better then he did. I've never raced one stock, don't know how much I would've beat him then. The goat's got 455 rwhp and 415 rw trq now, so obviously the race was a little lop sided. As far as how hard did I pull him goes, when I stomped it, it was just like passing up some Sunday driver on the highway on your way to work. I let off at 140. My car shifts from 3rd into drive between 141-143. That's my reminder that I'm going stupid fast and to let off the go peddle. He was way way way back there at 140, lol.

That's too funny because he probably thought he was really going to blow by you. With your numbers, I'm sure he had a good 'oh shyat' look on his face. You know he had hurt feeling to not even come up to you again.

Julie's HHR SS stock runs dead even with a stock S2000. I was shocked.

Reving to 8000rpms don't mean chit. Smaller engines can rev that high because of the short stroke. They have to rev that high to make horsepower.
