Default Grabber blue 5.0 wanted a piece

This past Sunday I'm driving home from the AM cruise spot, have the cruise control set at 55 and chilling in 6th gear.

GB 13+ Coyote comes along side, I didn't even look over until I heard him drop some gears, so I look over and he takes off. He slows down and paces me again, honks to get my attention, so I look over. Younger guy, early 20s, and gives me a look like "you want to run"? I ask if he has a blower in the car, wanted to see if it even made sense to drop the go pedal, he says no.....

I tell him my car makes like 800... still wanna go? He says yes. So ok, I'll humor him, I drop to 3rd around 50, so way out of the meaty part of the power band, I give him a sign to go, I'm feeling generous to give him the hit.

He takes off and jumps out a fender before I react.... I slam the pedal to the floor and in about 2 seconds his front bumper is at my rear bumper :naughty: so about 80 or so I let out.

not much of a race, but haven't really had much action in the car of late

You mess with the Mistress you get whipped...

I know the feeling of not getting much action, although it's different from my situation, 800+ different reasons lol. To make it interesting you should've put it in 5th and see how long it would take to reel him in lol.
