NOTE: I'm sure nobody here condones street racing but it's just a thing that happens spontaneously sometimes. Drive safely. [:)]

I absolutely smoked some dude in a modified Prelude (I know--that ain't sayin' much) tonight. I mean, it was really pathetic. The thing is, I wouldn't have even bothered had it not been for him riding my ass at a stoplight and once we got onto H1. I won't even bother going into the details cause I feel ashamed for even mentioning it. [:p] Then again, I rarely get a chance to drive on the freeway (since I live and work in town) so it was a nice chance to actually utilize a gear higher than 3rd. [:D]

Nothing special....yet. [;)]

APR chip
Neuspeed exhaust
Neuspeed short shifter
Sticker that says "Powered by Honda" (just kidding) [:p]

After my rims, tires, and coilovers come in (hopefully soon!) I plan on getting some downpipes--probably Labrees. [:)]

...or the GT28RS. [:D]

This morning when I was coming into work, this fool in a silver neon was tailing me. It was dropped with rims, exhaust, aftermarket hood, and what looked to be an aftermarket spoiler. I'm fairly positive it wasn't an SRT-4 because the guy had his left arm hanging out the window the whole time (i.e., no manual transmission) and I think the SRT-4 only comes with a manual tranny. I didn't even bother with this guy. [rolleyes]

I don't know if it's the S4 badge or the color of my car that's attracting these fools. I don't want to take off the badge and I sure as hell am not going to paint my car.

Haha, ever since, I bought my S recently. I've been called out a lot. Too me it's not worth the effort of wasting my gas, since prices gone higher. These guys just don't have a clue.

Zeus = i think GT28RS turbos won't fit in a B5 S4. The K04s just barely fit.

Yeah, but I only need to fill up like once every week and a half or two weeks cause it's only like 4 miles one way to work...so when I get a chance to get onto H1, I like to go fast. [:D] But yeah, I guess some people are just clueless as to the limits of their own cars...or to the performance of other peoples' cars.

i was merging from Nimitz back onto H1, I merged pretty quickly and i came up on a silver Evo8. I guess he noticed me going a little fast and kept pace with me. I decided to kick it up a notch so I gave it a little go. We were pretty even until about 90 or so. Then I slowed down cuz I usually don't drive that fast with passengers.

With tiptronic and no chip, my car is too slow to race anyone except certain minivans and maybe a Prius here and there [=(]

Those damn EVOs are fast. Haven't had any run-ins with them but I'd think it'd be a good match. Assuming, of course, that I don't have any passengers to weigh me down. [:D]

Here's a funny one...on the way in to work this morning, somebody in a silver Nissan Quest tried to race me (I didn't even bother to look at the driver). At the stoplight on Kapiolani, the dude went WOT (my windows were down so I could hear that he slammed on the gas). So, of course, not one to back down from a good fight (haha), I floored it and a couple seconds later looked in my rearview mirror to see that he had changed lanes and got behind me. LOL He turned onto the street where BMW is so it could've been the BMW shuttle or something. Like I said, I didn't even bother really looking.

Audi S4 - 1
Nissan Quest - 0

I think a stock Cayenne Turbo will give some hard rubs...I think that thing does 0-60 in 5.0 seconds or so. [eek] No SUV has any business being that fast. [:p] But actually, the Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG is slightly faster than the Cayenne Turbo. [eek]
