I was driving home and saw a really nice black G35 doing short sprints while getting onto freeway tonight.. So to humor myself I Drift paced him for a while (allmost kissing his rear bumper).. Knowing that the G35 is only 1 sec slower then the GTO I figured that it will be fun to play with him ...

As our cars both speed up slightly .. he was still trying to sprint away from me.. A few times I drafted him and came up on his drivers side real fast to smile at him.. he had a kinda serious look on his face ... when he gunned it I could hear his engine mods screaming at me...

He aslo had a super cute asian chick in his passenger seat.. I assumed it was his girl....I drafted up to the passenger side and smiled at her... His engine then let out a scream as he downshifted and launched away from me....

Knowing this was it.. I pounded from 60-100 in 4th gear... I caught up .. then low and behold.. "WTF??? wheres 5th gear????" ... I was having so much fun .. I was trying to put the car in reverse LMFAO.. (remember im a drifter not a StreetRacer) .. at this point we were side by side going 100... when I finally realized where 5th gear was .. I slammed it into 5th .. and launched away from him like he was parked... I could see his headlights do a slight bob as he upshifted and poped his clutch trying to keep up...

100-120-140 .. I was gone .... my RPMs climbed so high so fast there was no chance for him at all .. turn after turn on the freeway ... his headlights dissappeared from my rearview mirrior so fast .. It was like I hit the NOS ....

I can only imagine what his chick was thinking... he will prob go tell all his friends now to look out for a quicksilver GTO ... LMAO

fun fun fun.... :willy: :party:

I so wish I had the "twins" that you have. I guess I'll have to live "vicariously" through you and the others that don't think twice about hitting 100++++. I just can't risk it. Keep it up. Love the stories. just be careful.........

Ya know.... when I first got the car I almost went into Reverse twice... shouldn't there be a safety or something.... Will a B&M or GMM shifter fix that problem?

Nice kill :)

That really suprises me that there is not a safety. I have never personally made that mistake(knocks on wood).

Good kill man.

the wierd thing was ... it didnt let me go into R .. the shifter just kind kept blocking me from putting it in that gear.. ( could be cus I was moving so fast the gear was spinning) .. but there was no grinding gears or anything... just couldnt find 5th LOL.... If they are going to put reverse next to 5th .. they need to make it a depress reverse .. where the only way you can get into reverse is to press the shifter down .. like the german cars.. :willy: :party:

Isn't there a selenoid that prevents reverse when the car is moving forward? I used to worry about getting reverse instead of 5th, but after bouncing it off the gate a few times, it won't engage so I don't worry about it anymore.

yea I think there is, atleast something blocking it from not shifting into R during forward motion
I think it would be nice if they installed a pull ring on the shifter like an STi or a Supra, where you have to lift the ring on the shaft to shift into reverse

But yea I had a simlilar situation bra,
I was on my way to get my haircut last week and as Im on the freeway !-80westbound I get into the slow lane to hit an interchange to hit the I780 southbound I hit the interchange and hit the cork screw turn and in the middle im in about 3rd gear at about 40 (driving normally) when this red G35 pulls up to bumber leaving about a foot between us and drops back peiodically as I'm about to exit it drop it into second and go he tries to chase me down but all he sees are my taillights getting farther and farther away after about a mile I shut down and get into the slow lane and after he comes up next to me I give him a thumbs up but he keeps his head forward he pulls up then exits...
funny cause when I'm about to exit 3-4 miles later I spot him on the freeway again...
