    Got a vette last night

    Raced a c5 vette last night and beat him 3 out of 4 times last night. I wish I could have talked to him but it just didn't happen because we were going different ways. Here is the story, I posted it on myspace.
    Alright, so I am headed home last night from Cushing to my home in Oklahoma City coming down Turner Turnpike when a C5 Corvette flies past me in my Camaro. So I speed up to catch up and we are running around 100 to 110. As I pull up next to him he floors it and I do the same. I pull away from him about 2 car lengths to 135. We slow back down to about 90 and I pull up next to him and I floor it this time and he follows and I pulled about 4 car lengths by 120. The third time he fell back quite a ways and got one hell of a running start and I floor it from 80 to 135 and I was catching up but he let off so he won that one. 2-1 for me. Oh yeah, did I fell to mention that the nitrous was off? I couldn't reach the bottle to turn it on until we slowed way down. We slowed to about 65 side by side and I turned the bottle on. He floored it and got the jump but as soon as I hit the nitrouw I just started walking away from him, but I could tell something wasn't right when I hit the button. I ran it to over 165 and he was falling back extremely fast, I wondered if he let off but when I flashed by brake lights to signal I was slowing down, he flashed his headlights acknowledging me slowing down. I never thought that I had a chance against a vette let alone without the nitrous but my baby made me proud and won 3-4 and would have gotten that 4th one if we would have went longer. I don't know who he was but we both acknowledge each other and the good races and went our seperate ways. I got home and checked the bottle pressure, it was nearly completely empty with hardly any pressure (about 450) So, moral of story, never though my car was that fast, but I guess it is. I guess when you daily drive 400 hp natural and over 500 nitrous fed, it just feels slow. I love people that aren't afraid to have fun but at the same time, I love peoples' faces when you show them that your 13000 dollar car is more powerful and faster in a straight line then their 50 to 60000 dollar ride. My hat is off to whomever that was and if you read this, then please correct me if I am wrong on anything. Nice car by the way.

    Good job.

    I love the bang for the buck the LS1 cars are. My best moment was beating an Acura NSX. Guy seemed a bit pissed off he lost in his $90,000 car.

    The NSX is really nothing more than a status symbol. They are a complete joke, any vehicle costing 90 Grand with only 290HP (or an even more ridiculous 252 with the auto) is pathetic. The NSX gets owned in every category by the Corvette, which costs exactly half as much. The Vette is faster, handles better, looks nicer, and it just a much better car overall.

    Anyone who buys an NSX obviously has more money than smarts

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    this doesn't explain how you have 400hp without nitrous and over 500 on a stock block with nitrous?

    There are other things done that not everyone needs to know about. I like to keep somethings to myself that are done. It has been dynoed natural so I know the natural rating is accurate. The nitrous was just a guess. And the time was 12.86 @ 124

    I know, drag tyres and a stall. Baby on the way so money is getting tight. Hopefully I can get it and see the real potential before the baby arrives. And thanks for the compliment.

    I have a stock 6spd vert SS(rated at 335) and there is this guy around here with an NSX and he's talking big shit like his car is fast(faster than EVERYTHING).

    by the way he only got it because of the money won from court when his xgirlfriend ran over him.

    Just because of his big head, I want to dust him, think I can do it?
