    Default Remaped GSI V's STI SCOOBY

    Coming back from germany it was ... On the A14 around the Huntington area just West of Brampton hut .... Got caught behind a Lorry over taking another , It was about 3/4 down and i glanced in my rear mirror to see a lovely 56 plate scooby STI .... The Lorry moved out the way and in 3rd gear i toed it ..... I couldn't believe that i was pulling away ( although very slowly ) looked down and I'm doing 110 .. oops I thought ,so into the inside lane I went and slowed to a sensible speed , Obviously the Scooby went by me , but 1/4 mile up the road was another Lorry overtaking .. so this time i was behind ... i could see the jerk of the Scooby as the driver put it into 3rd gear and a cute little puff of unburnt fuel pop out the exhaust just before the Lorry turned into the nearside lane .... I'm also in 3rd at this point and we both floor it simutaniously knowing that this time the Scooby is gonna try harder than ever because it lost round 1 , but again mine had the better mid-range and i gained on him ( again very slowly ) but i got to the side of him , He ,I don't think saw the funny side of it and backed off .... I again pulled into the nearside lane as the scooby roared by trying to claim a little cred back from his *** whooping ...... i waved but he drove by with blinkers on .... So that's my little storey and with Alex's recent scalp its looking quite rosie for our big cruisers against the sporty type ...... I think 0-60 would have a very different outcome though in my case at least

    Seems to be some very large cans of WHOOP-*** being opened up this week guys !
    I had a big Merc diesel saloon on the M6 flash me (1.9 cdti 150 + caterman box and K&N ) out of the outside lane at 80mph.
    I floored it and at 100mph, i pulled over, let him pass then pulled in behind him & took him to 130mph then flashed him out of the way.
    Keep em coming.


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    little note for some people, a guy up in Northumberland recently had his forum escapades used to convict him of manslaughter due to dangerous, premeditated driving (ie he stated he raced on a road all the time)


    BUT, saying that, I've done it, its great! I just don't wanna get caught

    The M6 is my private road , not the big car park that runs from Carlisle to the M1 !

    Most of the time I don't bother, but recently I lost out to a BM 645i.

    BUT, not by much, considering his car cost £50k and had a 4.4L V8. In the lower reaches, it was neck and neck, and only in the higher numbers did he pull out a few car lengths (heavier, but more power).

    One recent casualty was a Golf GTi (new style, 200hp). Sat on my bumper thru the traffic, and then went rapidly backwards as the road opened up. He seemed upset: upset enough to go enough steaming down the lower section of the A3 (which is patrolled by many unmarked plod: I normally back off well before this point and settle down to a gentle cruise as the traffic gets heavier)

    Well I'm definately gonna get a remap now
    There's always roadkill to be had. My private road session was against an early Jag XK, I managed to keep him back through to 138 on GPS, but he wouldn't go any faster (unless they're limited & can't go faster).
