I went out to eat with some friends saturday night before our homecoming dance and when I pulled in notice one of the girls in our group came with this guy driving a 03 cavalier, bodykit, 17" rims, the whole 9-yards of rice. Got talking to him in the resturaunt to just to find out what he's got done to it. It looked sharp, but like I suspected, it was all show, no go. Header and CAI were his only mods. At least it was a stick. Anyway, him and one of his friends (also the date of one of the girls in our group) start talking to each other and i find out they make a habit of lining up on the main drag through town and catching stoplights to run each other. This other guy drives a cavalier as well. I pretty much stayed out of the conversation, but when we were about to leave they wanted to drive up and down the main drag a couple times before going to the dance. As one of the guys got into his Crapalier he called out to the other guy "dont cry if I beat you in pink" (he was wearing a pink dress shirt :huh: ). I called out to them both, "dont cry when a neon beats you both."

First light they caught i was behind them, and had I layed on it wouldve rear ended them they were so slow. I waited, letting them take off first, shifted 1000-1500rpm early, and i still had to wait 2-3 seconds between gears, just coasting so i would run them over! The next light they caught i didnt even bother, but then I got in front, led them up to a light and the kitted cavi rolls up next to me (the guy w/ the header and CAI, 03 MTX). I told him not to feel too bad, but he was about to get owned by a neon. I stage at 4000rpm, light turns green and i launch hard, tires spin a bit and I floor it as they grab. He disappears from view as i pull on him hard right of the line. I slam second and then let off, glancing at my speedometer it reads 50-60 and the Cavy is way back in my rearview, I didnt even count the car lengths, but it was more than 5 for sure, possibly 8 or so. I threw on the hazzard lights just to rub it in. :D

At least they were cool about it, complimenting my SRT exhaust and things of that sort. I almost feel bad for embarrassing him in front of his date... Almost.

Good Kill Rice!!!! I bet the two cars combined wouldn't have enough power to out run a Neon! LMAO! Did the two cars tie or was one faster than the other with his mods? LOL I remember someone getting on me for picking on a cavi becouse I knew they were slow. LOL I want to test out one of the Cobalts and see if they are quick. I imagine the SC version might take me out N/A.LOL Maybe?

Like the guy that used to work down there with you? He thought that he had 220 HP form a header and exhaust! LMAO!!!!!! I always just listened to him and then went to my car and laughed at him!!! To think he got almost 100 hp from the CAI and exhaust.
He may have had 99 HP at the wheels. Atleast the car sounded fast! LOL

I'm hoping to have the bottle installed by next spring, then I'll be able to teach lessons to more than just those slow cavies. Hoping to show up some mustangs and maybe a stock SRT-4 or two. I'll save the spray for the track though, I'm not big into racing on the street, its dangerous and law enforcement seem to frown on it....

I got a good laugh everytime we talked about his car. 220 HP WTF??? I bet he thinks it will out run our neons too. Is it the Ecotec or whatever? If it is it's a tad faster.
