A few days ago I had a POS Nissan with a fart can and a NISMO sticker try to whip around me, so I gave the Sport about 40% throttle and he couldn't pass me... until we were coming up on a yellow light which I stopped for and then he decided to run the red light. I am all for having fun, but not going to put people at risk.

On the same road tonight, I had a Subaru WRX (may have been an STI, but couldn't tell, it was dark and he was in my rear view) being a dickhead on a local road, it was empty, so I gave it a little gas and started leaving him behind. When it started we were just turning onto the road. So I was in front of him and let off the gas as I was already well over the speed limit. Well turns out, he wanted to keep being a dickhead, and tried to get around me, so I hit the gas again, and left him in my dust until I was at about 75 in a 40 and then I had to turn. So I started hitting the brakes and then he finally was able to get around me cause I was turning.

Man this thing is fun and sure as **** fast. Its going to get me in trouble...

I told my wife, "This thing is a speeding ticket just waiting to happen." I haven't gotten one since the early 90's, but I think my time might be coming with this car.

Yeah, I tend to know where the cops like to sit around here since I make the drives often enough.

I'm fairly familiar with the local law enforcement, too. Didn't do me any good, though.

I've been pulled over twice... in one week.... both times for window tint. SMH....

However, the first time I got lucky as I was toying with an Accord Sport on the highway and well... I'm sure you can put 2 and 2 together. He was sitting on the exit ramp as I approached, hit the binders hard and rolled by him. He pulled out behind me, followed me to the stop light... and the seizure inducing LED lights came on. I thought I was dead to rights... turns out he just wanted to piss me off and give me a non fix-it ticket for my window tint...:mad:

Honestly as a fellow michigander, I would love to have window tints but the cops are so hard on them it doesnt seem worth it. I had them on a previous car and got pulled over too many times to even bother now. What % of tints do you have? My last time having tints I had 20% all the way around, great during the day, horrible at night but after my third window tint ticket in a year, i just removed them. I was thinking of trying something like 50%.

Was thinking of adding the tint, but realized just not worth the hassle. At night especially in areas that have zero street lighting tint can be a bad thing. Judgement call ultimately......

Well just remember NYS will be enforcing tint law as of Jan 1st with all auto inspections.

Well I can add another car to this one. On the freeway last night, cruise set at 79, and a small coupe (I am thinking a Scion TC, but it was dark so I am not positive) was gunning it and slowing down, so I accelerated kinda hard, and beat him, but wasn't going to go too crazy. But apparently being shown he was slower wasn't enough for him, so as I was slowing down, I saw him coming up behind me, then moved over next to me, so I hit sport mode, and gunned it harder this time, and before I knew it I was at 108 mph and he was in my rear view for me to not see again. He went home with his tail between his legs.

Why on earth would a person driving a Scion TC be looking to race? That's just silly!

Same reason I had a Dodge Dart challenge me in my Mustang. Sad thing is once he did his fly by, it took me almost an 1/8 mile to pass him since I couldnt get traction. I hate cold weather.

Also because just like any other ricer in a Honda Civic or similar type of car, they try to pull that crap with literally everyone including the grandma driving a 1992 Caddy.

WTF? Where do y'all live that cops hassle you for window tint? I've had 20% for every single car I've owned since my '89 5.0 and no issues.
Speeding tix, yes, but window tint????

Had a chance to play around with a Challenger last night. Not sure exactly what sub model it was, but it at least had a loud exhaust and sounded good.

We didn't get to run from a dig, but I was impressed at how I faired in the several very informal 35-40mph rolling runs we made. If he got the jump, he'd be at my front bumper by the time my power came on, then about a car ahead by the time we shut down around 70. However, if I got the jump, I was at his front bumper until we shut down. Obviously if we actually did a honk start he would win every time from a roll, but the one 5mph roll we did, he got wasted. All I heard was 8 pistons pumping and tortured tires. He wasn't interested in a dig run after that.

I'm thinking he was pretty surprised by the Sport.

Well I am making the same trip today as I made last weekend, so we will see if anyone tries again today. I will keep you guys posted if it happens.

Bot, that was an R/T. The SE's can't keep up, and the SRT's blow us away. The R/T's really depend on a lot but we CAN beat them.

I assume it was an RT. Im sure i wouldn't be able to stay in front of an SRT even in the short runs we had. It did sound monsterous though, and and I was even a bit surprised by how I faired based solely on how strong his car sounded.

Maybe if i could hear my turbos, it would be more believable.

From a dig, the sport will fare with the best of them, and even better with a tune, but on a roll? better choose wisely and hope she spools up quickly LOL

I know the feeling this car is quiet when i look down and see almost triple digits it shocks me.
