Ok this one really cracked me up....

I was coming out of Arby´s and I pulled up the interection at a red light. I wasn´t paying attention seriously to anything. I was worried about getting over one lane so that I could get on Hwy 45 Southbound. There was someone next to me so I floored it, kind of, at the green. I was heading up through 1st gear and I hear this really loud exhaust almost like a Harley. I was right by the Harley plant on Capital so I didn´t think anything of it till I glanced in my rearview. There was this ass in an Intregra plastered so close to my ass that I couldn´t see his headlamps. I HATE that. So I am like ok buddy I´ll give you a taste of the old Escort GT. He thought he could get around me on my right side. I slammed it into second and floored it. I love second gear in our cars. Things really start to move once you go into second. I started pulling away. Not alot but some. Right up through to 4th. I dare not do much over 45 here because after all I am not stupid. I could tell he was givin her because I could really hear it and I could see the nose of his car pointed quite high. I pulled into the right lane in front of him and kind of let it coast up to the on ramp. I made sure he was good and tight on my ass going onto the on ramp because I wanted him to remember this. Once again I slammed it into second going around the corner and took off. I really pulled away this time. I will give him credit, once into 4th he started to catch up some but it didn´t do him any good. I hit 75 near the end of the ramp and I let off. I wasn´t going to push things.....I had beaten him. He just kind of pulled around me and took off up the highway. I don´t play on the highway especially with how busy it was....thats just dumb. As he went by I saw the red ´R´ on the back but I have no way of knowing if it was genuine or not. I think that little sticker is the only thing that gave him half a chance anyway ;-). He got a taste of the Escort and I think I left quite the bitter taste....

Good kill. Like you said you did, I really doubt it was a genuine Type R. Those things pull 190 hp, he could have left you in his dust easily. I bet it was an Integra LS, those have like 130 hp but are heavier than a 2nd gen GT. Glad he got to see what an EGT could do ;-)

Good job, Funkyman! Gotta show them ricers what for, at every available opportunity. Kudos on your restraint.
Type Rs come in only White, IIRC, so was it white? The exhaust was not stock going by your description of it´s sound, and I doubt anyone with a real Type R would see a need for a fart can. Typr Rs were during the era of the 4 round headlights. Incedentally, I thought Integras were all 142 hp, be it GS, LS, or RS. :cool:

Yah, the type R´s are pretty fast, when I was driving home, there where some young guys, my age (19) driving in one. and he slowly past me and I saw the TYPE R on the rear bumper, but I did think it was real so I slowly creeped up beside them and looked over, then he looked over and sped up a little so I sped up a bit, (oh by the way I was driving my dad´s 98 cadillac catera sports model). and them we took of, we reach about 210 KPH, and we were both side by side, and then he took the express lanes, so it must have been a Type R.

Yeah the Integra was White but I think it must have been early 90´s now that I think about it because it looked just like my sisters 91 Integra.....

Well then I can tell you (thanks to Brian) that it wasn´t a Type R...there´s no such thing as an early 90s Integra Type R that was built in the states. :cool:

I´ve been reading about the Impreza WRX STi.

0-60 in 4.78 seconds 1/4 mile in 13.36 seconds. (as tested by autoweek magazine) It will not hang with a Ferarri...it´s limited to a top speed of around 160 mph.

cool car...too bad it costs $47,000 US...when you can get a WRX for half the price, upgrade the turbo and LSD and make it just as quick...meanwhile still getting a better skippad number. (STi can only do a .88)
