Maranello and Viper

Ok guys my two claims to fame (not that i came anywhere near stayin even or within any good amount of car lengths) is that I have raced a Dodge Viper and a Ferrari Maranello. Both cars are ridiculous and i just wanted to let you know that i played around with em. Hahaha, rather a pointless story but still amazing...

I don't think I'm quit ready to race one of those yet, but I might be able to stay with them in the twisty's. Cool either way

That's cool. I stayed with two vipers going about 140-145. That is until they down shifted and walked away from me! Fun times. Those things are goddamn fast and sound so good with the side exit exhaust.

I work in a REALLY ritzy part of town... Ferrari Maranellos and Porsche 911 Turbos are WEEKLY sightings, Boxsters and other "Entry level exotics" (I love to dig at the boxster) are a 5 per day type of event. I used to race boxsters between these two stop lights that they just COULD NOT beat me on. HAHA it is especially funny when they have their girlfriends with em. Anyway the Really expensive cars like Maybachs, Ford GTs, and Bently Coupes will NEVER race, but I found that lower cars are usually (and foolishly) willing to race a station wagon that happens to get so much better traction than them that it will always beat em to the next light. Every once in a while you get a "Professional" who knows that you have to launch a super powerful car in 2nd gear on the street, but usually they will spin for about a second before they realize how powerful their toy is. Once I got caught by a (de-badged) AWD 911 turbo... he out launched me in the rain... man was my face red
I am used to at least leaving the intersection before them

I've had my ass handed to me by an S2K once, but I'm sure it wasn't stock.

I raced an 05 S2000 with me and 2 fat asses in my car and I stayed right with him, if it wasn't for the extra weight i would of beat him. I think he was shocked at what a WRX had to offer
