Sorry 'trep owners
I had one of my best kills today. I came up to a red light on R1 & 9 just before Newark Intl. airport. And next to me was what seemed like a very riced up Intrepid. It was a late model though, it definetly looked very new and up to date. I slightly purred my engine, and he began to creep up and rev his engine. As soon as the cross section light turned red and before ours turned green, we shot out.
Needless to say this was no match what so ever. I figured being that my car is bone stock and his looked nice (Looks can be deceiving), I was in for a death sentence. Low and behold, about 5 seconds later I was doing nearly 60 and before I knew it I was well over 4 car lengths ahead of him.
We went on all the way through until we hit the Pulaski SkyWay (which for anyone who has ever commuted there can note that its a distance and a half from where we started). It was overall very fun though, there was no cars around as it was pretty early and we hit well over 110MPH. By the time we hit the Pulaski and the road narrowed, I stopped speeding and I was still 3 or so car lengths ahead.
All in all it was a very good challenge. The driver of the 'trep drove up and kept parallel to me and waved me off and gave me a thumbs up. He had a big smile on his face so definetly a good sport. Who knows, maybe even a DI.net registered user.
So if you raced a black 300M for a good couple of miles on R1&9 today, make yourself known!
