    Got beat by an SS Camaro on the 210 freeway

    Well it had to happen sooner or later this year. I got beat. I'm driving home from work on the 605 going north. I see a Black Camaro SS, with the optional exhaust sytem (The one that goes in the middle). It looked to me like he had wider tires on it, and it definitely didn't sound stock (Dunno how much power that additional exhaust adds, or what it sounds like, for that matter).

    Anyways, the guy is pacing me. At first I didn't wanna bite, cause there was traffic all over the place. We both went onto the 210 freeway, going west. I'm about to go into the left lane, he goes in front of me, quickly, and then slows down. I was like, WTF. He immediately downshifts, and guns it. I see alot of black smoke come out of the back of his car (The car was running extremely rich from what I could tell). Anyways, I downshift to 4th, gun it, and follow in pursuit. Through the top of 4th I start reeling him in. I granny shift into 5th (I fucking hate shifting to 5th and 6th gear). I thought i'd start catching up, but then this car just starts to pull away, which is odd, cause I was reeling him in originally quite quickly. Anyways, i'm thinking he might have nitrous, as he was losing ground, and then his car just started leaving me quite quickly (Well that and the part about him running rich). I could be wrong though, and maybe he has a cam that doesn't make power till into it's higher rpm range. Anyways, he put a good car length on me, and I decelerated for the corner, realizing I was defeated. I think he wanted to run me again, but I was soo tired I could barely even tense up for the race.

    Nice car nonetheless. Definitely faster then my bird.

    how fast were you going now?? because if im anywhere in the neighborhood of 70 im in third.....that might have made a difference. and whats the 210 freeway. driven on the 110, but never heard of the former. either way, nice death and atleast it was a fellow f body. but try to stay down a gear so you can have a quick pull and then shift at 6100. no sense in being in too high of a gear because the torque will come on too late. and id bet that guy wouldnt wait around for you to get the torque a-roarin

    Sorry, thought my mods were in my sig. I have 4.10 gearing. Hope that helps to clear things up.

    I think I went up to around 130mph, but i'm not too sure.

    At least you went for it .. Can't win if you don't play and there's no shame in losing if you tried. For me anyhow, only shame if you don't even try.
