So I just took out a Ferrari

I was on base to grab some coffee and gas when the sudden urge to poo hit me, hard. So I hopped in my car to drive home. I decided to take it nice and slow going towards the highway because I wanted to feel how much of a difference the engine mounts and traction kit I had installed yesterday have made.

Anyway... so I eased up to the entrance ramp then nailed it, and guess who I find on the highway next to me?? A dark blue Ferrari out for a Sunday drive.

He was already in the right hand lane (remember, I'm in England so all the roads are backwards) and there was a slow car in the left, so I swung in behind him to play keep up. I get in position and check to insure my boost controller is set to [Hi] when my palms start to moisten and my stomach contemplates butterflies. This is gunna be fun!

He gets on it a little bit and I keep up without much problem. Then we slow down because a car's jumped in the right lane ahead of us. Once clear he pushes it again, and again I hold my distance, and gain, without any trouble. What's going on here? I know he's playing because I can see his rear planting as he puts his foot down...

Anyway, after about 30 seconds both lanes clear and he pops over into the left lane. I pulled up next to him and gave him a big thumbs up. Then, like an *******, I mash the go-fast pedal. He caught back up to me about 1-2 miles up the road where the speed limit drops down and there is a roundabout.

As I enter the roundabout there is an SUV in front of me. They stay in front of me So I give some space then put my foot down (this traction kit works GREAT!) and the Ferrari follows suit.

After about another mile or two of traffic the way ahead opens up, and my exit (I've still gotta poo!) is on the left. **** the ****, I get in 4th gear and pulse the gas. My water/meth system kicks in and, combined with a free-flow midpipe, I know they are seeing some fireworks out the exhaust

Again, I put my foot down and grab the lead, his nose raises a bit as he adds his own go-go juice, but he falls further and further back.

At this point I'm just in shock! How is my FD pulling on a Ferrari like this?!?!?!

So the second, and last, exit for my town comes up, and I pop over to the slow lane and put on my turn signal. The Ferrari catches up and slowly passes me. I gave them a big smile and wave, the young boy riding shotgun gives me a grin and a golf-clap.

Have I now graduated from Bimmers and TVRs, into running Exotics??

Good times, good times.


Obligatory Information:

My car/mods:

'94 FD
BNR's (sequential)
340rwhp (400rwhp when compared to American Dyno numbers) @ 1.3 bar
(massive) VMIC
ALL other bolt-ons - I'm not going to list them...

Yeah, after doing some google image searches I settled on it being a 456M. Mild wet blanket (I thought it was an FD for a split second b/c of the cut in the side, fog lights and popups)..

It's no F430, but still not really a slouch either.

Hehe, having been stationed in England for the past two years I've ran into a couple of them. The drivers tend to be dick heads, so beating the **** out of them gives dual pleasure Last time I ran into one I had a buddy riding with me, I ripped an (almost immediate) 3-4 car length lead before letting off and firing a MASSIVE flame. Guys in the TVR went mental, was pretty fun, lol.

Nice kill! Not a bad list of victims either with the TVRs and Bimmers.

Thanks, hehe.

Yeah, the post race poo was so-so, nothing in comparison to the race it spawned, lol.

I saw a Carrera 4 on the road today. He wouldn't play though =P I probably scared the **** out of him since I was driving along with no front bumper (in the process of finally installing my A-Spec bumper)

I know you were ******* around, lol. Besides.... there aren't any Pontiac's in the UK. Or, if there are, then they belong to other US military types, and they don't come in RHD

Good read! Haha, honestly once the snow clears there's quite a few Ferrari's out here. Now a Fiero is something I haven't seen in years!
