: Moral of the Story: Be careful what you pick a race with.

So I am going home from work tonight and this A**hole is on my tail so close I can't see what it is. We were doing 75 when he was on my ass. I pull out to the fast lane and he goes around me. I see it is a Maroon V1. So I pull in behind him and we run up to 100. Then he hit it. I realized what he did so I hit it too. Well she downshifted and I drove around him and proceeded to drive away. So I slowed down and he tried it again. I did the same thing and same result. I thought his eyes were going to pop out of his head. He quickly ducked off the next exit. Now I can only guess he was stock to lightly modded and thought he could blow me away or he should have blown me away. So I slow down to 75 and a White Monte Carlo SS pulls up and tried the same. SO I once again hit it and pulled away like he was standing still. Well now it was time for me to exit and the White Monte gave me a thumbs up as he passed by. Thought that was a nice gesture. I'm sure he was thinking "That's a fast CTS-V".

Happy the cooling mods worked. Ran 3 back to back WOT runs with no degraded performance. Just wish I would have been scanning!! Would love to see that log.

Moral of the story be careful what you pick a race with, it just may be much faster than you!

Nice. I always try to size up the other car first. It's nice to usually have the fastest car in the vicinity, but not always. Sometimes I see a car and I think - not messing with that one.

Racing on public roads is illegal. :bigroll:

Is it a race if you just leave someone in the dust because they've already proven they're an idiot?

PGA2B....the new owner of my STS-V is in Mesa so you may still see her driving around. And we have to meet up so I can run you in my new car and see how they stack up! :)

Lighten up Francis!

He was RACING.

I was just driving home.

With that comment I am quite certain whatever you got is much faster than mine.:thumbsup:

Lol, no secret...just haven't had the chance to really detail her and take some nice photos. But I ended up with a Black Diamond Edition CTS-V Sedan (auto). Looking forward to intake, cutouts and pulley to bring out the beast. My STS-V went to the owner of rigid industries here in Phoenix. He may be turning it into a SEMA car...so I'm excited to see what he does.

Iv'e had my V for a little more than three months now and the only guy that has tried to step up was in a mid-2000's M5 coming from a red light. After stompping him to 80mph, I let off...he flew by me running 80+ through the construction zone ahead just like a typical Beemer D-Bag would....pissed off that he got schooled. Gotta say, it was fun knowing that he was probably thinking, WFT! why is that Caddy beating me???

See, now I know better than to race (oh wait - that's illegal, I mean try to beat) a Gen 2 CTS-V. Hope you like it.
