What happened to all the kill stories in this section? Anyways lol.
No video but a nice lil story I guess, I'll have to take my camera out with me next time, wasn't charged and didn't know I was going out tonight, besides the point.
Was out tonight and pulled in with my buddy in his S4 b5 2.7 biturbo to get some food. As soon as we parked some kid with a honda started running his mouth about how I was talking shit on him previously (I don't open my mouth to anybody that I haven't ran? but that's w/e.).
So I just ignore him for a bit and finally me and my buddy get sick of hearing his bullshit. He finally walks over and asks why I was talkin shit again and we go on for that for awhile with me explaining to him that I don't talk shit on stuff I haven't ran yada yada. Finally my buddy asks him if he wants to quit talkin and run the S4. They both agree and head out on the strip beside the food place. Civic won't take a dig at all (would've got raped if he did) so they both start in 2nd.
They honk, civic takes the jump and pulls half a car, the s4's turbos fully spool up and he starts pulling about half a car (crazy feeling by the way, you cannot sit back up when they kick in at full boost), then the s4 has to shift and the hondas still got probably 2k rpms left in 2nd. By the end of 3rd for the civic he was prob ahead a car of the s4 when they cut off. Had it been on the highway goin to 130 or so the s4 probably would've yanked it but they didn't.
They pull back in and we all check out his car, pretty nice build, ls vtec I'm assuming internals running 10psi he said. Hood wouldn't fit over the turbo so he cut out some of the hood lol overall a pretty nice car with some hard work put into it, a type of honda that will get respect from me all day.
After that and just hanging out talking he chilled out with me and we shot shit awhile. They all left and we got going a bit later.
My buddies sitting at the stop sign waiting for me, I didn't think anything of it. We both pull onto the strip me in 1st gear, no idea what he was in. Now I realize he wants to run as he pulls off the first honk. I really didn't want to because my motor was prob sittin at 100deg coolant temp and I NEVER get on it till it's fully warm. It gets to about 130 deg and I've been waiting weeks to run him though so I say fuck it and 3rd honk comes around. I floor it in 1st, whaaap whaaap whaaap goes the s/c and tires, a lil smoke show ensues, I hear his pipes fill with forced air loud as shit. My tires actually didn't let up too too bad in 1st, Hankook ventus evo k12 ftw. I clutch it slap 2nd chirp and spin for a split second. We're neck and neck and I'm watching over at him grinning from ear to ear happy that I'm keeping up with it
. I finish out 2nd and he keeps going, he probably pulled 2-3 cars and I glided it into 3rd and chalked it up to a respectable loss considering what I was up against.
His mods are unknown at the moment, but we believe it to be stock turbo, with a tune and some other supporting mods. Again another respectable loss.
My mods full cooling minus meth, exhaust, from header to 3" dp to 2.5 catback, 3.0, 42's. Right now my tunes is 18 or 19 deg of timing, nowhere near what it could be running (No doubt I could get mid 20's out of it but I just haven't had the time yet) so there's definitely room for improvement and maybe gain me that car or two back.
Overall a fun night and some fun races, sorry for the novel I tried to make it interesting
. I can't wait to drop pulleys and hopefully get some e85 pumping seeing how well my mild ass current setup faired. Heading in for an interview on Monday at a place so crossing my fingers they pay much better than my current shit job so I can get to work on this baby
