.....It was the usual front wheel spinnage from Athena, with the steering wheel squirming around, then the "hook up" and I was off. The girl did in fact get a better launch this time, but was still behind my door as she waited for the VTEC crossover to occur when she would get some real power.....And it happend.
What sounded to me like a Ferrari 360 Modena hitting its redline, stopped when she clutched and made a forceful "powershift" into second gear. There was no grinding from the syncromesh in her tranny and no clutch smoke, just the chirp of her front tires, and the image of that little black coupe sliding in front of me. It was funny as matter of fact, seeing how much distance she gained from that first-to-second power shift as her rear windows popped into view. I looked down at my speedometer......45mph.....50mph......60mph.......
The first shift that she got right was a lucky draw, and she probably felt like she couldn't do it again without screwing up her race with me, so she did the normal "lift off--shift--back on" technique that was best for her new tranny. In this pause in her acceleration, Athena manage to power back up to her door again, and I looked over.
The girl had a look of determination on her face when she realized that this litle squirmish was gonna be harder than she thought. She did manage to put on a cute little smile between her second and third gears, and so did her companion in the passenger seat. I smiled back and kept my foot on the floor....
By now she had pulled off slightly again. I knew she would because I knew that a well driven RSX-S would run quicker than my [email protected]
just wanted to see this hot girl go.....but Athena had other plans....
As long as I kept the shift overrides clean with no bouncing off the limiter, the Pontiac was never more than a half car behind her and when the first long radius left hand turn on SR-27 came up, I could tell who had more confidence in thier car.
I would've thought that the RSX could've out-maneuvered me but i remember that the Blistein performance struts and sticky Kumho ECSTA's I had put on Athena closed that gap quickly.......
The little white Pontiac wormed it way up to her again as we careened around the turn. It was pretty exhilerating in fact because both cars were still gaining speed, and the G forces that wanted to throw us out of our seats had to be fought of by us bracing against our steering wheels. I was suprised when the wail of the K20A got louder as I passed her hood. I saw the back end of the RSX figted a little as she probably hit some gravel when she ran off a little into the embankment. She feel back about a car length, but kept on chuggin along behind me.
I remember not being able to take my eyes away from the passenger side rear view mirror as I observed her curly blonde hair flying around in the wind. There was very little traffic down this way and the road was straight and level for at least six miles (which is why I loved it)......And we both felt pretty safe because if any police spotted us going this fast, all you had to do was keep your throttle matted down, take a random exit, and start making a series of blind turns.
Anyways, the LA1, with its pushrods flyin around in the engine was trying its best to shove the outside air into its cylinders, but the K20A Honda was simply more efficient at doing this with its DOHC heads and VTEC valve crossover. The little thing was steamin along behind me at about 7500 rpm, and she was slowly gaining again as the road turned straight. After a few seconds, she was finally back up beside me, and we spotted our first round of traffic....
A minivan, possibly moving at about 70mph (the speed limit) was in her lane and it was coming fast. She came down her brakes and cut over right behind me and we whizzed past that van with a sound reminicent of those out of "Fast and Furious". WHHHOOOOOSH!!!
I had to laugh when I head the honking of the van's horn as we left it eating our dust....The Acura moved back into the other lane and power up once again....slowly gaining ground on me in the rear view. I hadn't looked at my speedometer in at least a minute or so, and judging by those little lines that divided the lanes, we were both haulin some serious ass.
I didnt have enough time to look when a broud semi trailer that was carrying a load of Honda's (how coincidental..lol) came up and cut into my lane. I saw a look of suprise on the blonde Acura driver's face, and because she was beside me by now, I couldn't use her lane to avoid it.....so I instantly grew some larger balls and swerved into the embankment....and here's the interesting part.
You know those little U-Turn section in highways that the police normally use when they're trying to get someone? Well my left tires had gone off the concrete and found nothing but grass until I suddenly hit the concrete U-Turn section. The slab of concrete was raised about a half inch off the grass, and at well over 100mph (which I know we were doing, judging by how long my foot was on the floor), when my wheels hit it....i heard a big thud and suddenly my body was floating around in my seat.
Had I just killed myself? I thought quickly as I still held onto the steering wheel. Nope...instead I saw the bewildered looks of the Acura girls BELOW me as their eyes followed my car. Apparently that little slab had sent my car flying airborne with maybe a foot or so of air below my tires.....and it landed rather abruptly but in a controllabe manner.
I was still right beside the Acura, and I could see the girls mouthing, "hooooly ****!" as Athena steadied her path along the road. It took me a moment to think about whether or not i had pissed on myself, but then my ego said, "you're one helluva driver man!".
I smiled and matted my foot again.........Now the traffic was clear for about a mile and I finally had enough time to peer down at my speedometer.
It read a clear 133mph and the little needle slowly inched over to higher markers on the dial...."Wow..." I muttured.
I continued until she was about a car ahead and both coupes began to choke off of their speed limiters.
"Maximum allowable speed" my information center read again. "Power limited"..."Hot engine oil"...."Service engine soon"
142mph........I flashed my lights and signaled that that was all my car had......I figured from the way things were lighting up on the dashboard, Athena was preparing to self destruct and i didn't blame her......The little white GA was pummling along at about 5400rpm and it was apparently putting alot of strain on the engine.........The girl stuck her hand out the window and acknowledged with a thumbs up.
We flew onwards at these outlandish speeds for another two miles or so, hitting the actual highway and eventually flying through Ross. Once we reached dense residentaly areas our speed feel to around 55mph and we eventually stopped at a red light.
"Damn man!....You sure how ta' drive that little thang sweet cakes!" the girl said. Her friend held up a peice of paper with two ten digit numbers on it. I grabbed my phone and entered them quicky before the light changed again. And I nodded when I had entered them in.
"Same to you! I've never seen that kinda shifting and driving coming from someone as gorgeous as you are!" I shouted back in stupidity. She blushed and replied.
"Why thank ya! How about you give us a call next time ya wanna have some fun?"
They both laughed and said,
"You better call us!"
The light turned green and they made a left onto a residental road.....I continued going straight......I still remember them waving and giggling as they drove off.
Still being the show off that I am, I spun my front tires from the stop again, and she revved the KA20 and dumped the clutch in response. I had to laugh and shake my head.....
What a Christmas present eh? Two hot girls....and one blonde that can actually DRIVE!!!
If that only happened everyday...
*we call it......GM........bitches*
