Today some bozo in a Dodge Hellcat kept "baiting" me to race him . Needless to say I ignored him. Sure, as if I'm going to race a 700 HP car ( I think the weight of the two cars is somewhat comparable ) with my car which is missing that extra 250 HP and torque ..
But that's beside the point ; not only would I never road race anyone even under the best conditions, but today was the first rain of the season and the roads were extremely slick.
And I use the term bozo very kindly because in addition to the inherent danger and the added risk of police just happening to be nearby, doing this on a fairly busy commercial neighborhood street, is idiotic ! Three lane road btw, 45 mph speed limit.
But ignoring him was evidently not enough, because he decided to show off anyway and stomped on it, causing his car to severely fishtail !! Lucky for me ( and for him ) his car's "drift" was into the other adjacent lane, not the adjacent lane I was in. I say lucky for me and him because had I been in the other lane the GT would have suffered some serious damage, and in addition to that I would have probably been charged with assault after the accident...possibly homicide
and that's where his luck comes in.
He looked to be in his mid-30s , you'd think by then you might acquire some common sense, but I suppose not everyone gains that maturity .
Ugh, I've been challenged many times while driving my Porches , this is the first time while driving the GTS . Well, it looks really fast ( and to an extent , it is.. ) so it attracts all sorts of folks trying to test and see what it does
