usually we arent the first people to tell what car beat us, but today i raced my first ferria. it started on the top of a 95 overpass and lasted for a bout 5 seconds. we were going about 60 and i heard him get ready to hit it so i dropped into 3rd and yeah that was about it...He had at least a car length on me by 80 and i quit at 90 becasue it was rediculous how far he had gone. just thought i would share my experience...

More to come LOL.................!

-A Corvette got me from a 55 roll on! I hung for about 5 seconds. (C5).

-Toyota Tundra got the jump on me on the freeway on ramp. For some reason I couldn't catch up to him. Traffic was a factor, he had lawn mowers in the back and 2 friends in the truck. I was trying to catch up and I would run into thick traffic. He kept putting the hazzards on me. I was ticked!

- Turbo charged Honda Prelude made me think twice, about 2 months ago. We went from a 40 roll on and we ran out of space at about 65. Young guy started taking too many risks to prove a point and made his own third lane! Than he turned down a street that he knew and I knew had a lot of twists and turns, I passed, knowing he would with that game. Ticked me off knowing he went out thinking he was king!

More to come.............LOL

I had a funny encounter the other day when a corvette started creeping up behind me in traffic. I nailed it and then watched as the silver Z06 just blew past me like I was standing still.

Yeah, the first time you race a Vette with the C is the last time you consider the thought. I had one shadowing me on my way from Flagstaff to Phoenix, he caught me, pulled alongside, we both gunned it....and all I could do was watch him get smaller in the distance ahead.

But I've got more cupholders dammit!

I had a Subaru somethingaruther, of all things, also make me roll out the dreaded "tie" concession. The car wasn't much to look at, like a Sentra on roids, but it was as quick as it was fugly.

Still, it's a sad day for the automotive world when my bulky one year old four door sedan has smoked everything it's gone up against. Various BMW 7 series, 5 series, every Cadillac it's come in contact with, and a god number of Mercedes cousins. When this family car left a Honda S2000 in the dusty horizon, I began considering that perhaps I just live amongst the world's worst drivers....it can be this fast can it?

Hmmm...maybe!

2005 Mercedes E55 that was hunting me on the freeway for over 20 miles. Once we got some open road, I slowed to 50mph and he paced me with a giant grin on his face. I nailed it, he did the same and he was gone. I'm sure it made his day.

That car is fast.

Havn't done too much racing - just a little. Many times though I take advantage of my power at lights etc to get in front of traffic - never been beaten. A guy in a really fast souped up looking Mustang wanted to take me on last month. He really let it go and took off. I let him go but sure felt like I would have lost.

Someone earlier mentioned a truck (I think a Tundra with lawn mowers in the back) beat them because of traffic. Why would you bring that up? No big deal but seems kinda odd.

I don't know where you folks are coming from. I pulled up to a set of lights the other day and a new vette pulled up, he gave me that look, I put it into auto-stick, took off ESP and when the light changed I floored it and left him in my dust, man I felt good.

Did I mention that I was going north and he was going south!?!?!? :confused:

it wasn't a one on one
but I was outside of chicago(I94) and spotted a Bently GT a few car lenghts ahead. I wanted to get a closer look, so I started to push it and the more I pushed the less I saw.
