    Talking All performance enhanced Vectra's & Signum's

    Since I modded my vectra I have now become an old age boy racer again


    Before modding my hearse I used to have a good laugh if I had my thule cycle carriers & aero bars on

    I would be cruising along & come upon the Subaru & Evolution Clan chugging along to conserve fuel (daring anyone to attempt to pass them)

    Yes.. here we go, give them the "Traffic special Flash" as I cruised up to them & the result was always the same,
    the quick startled hamster look in the mirror, wrongly assuming that the aero bars "blue lights" were about to start flashing,
    before veering into the inside lane to let Strathclydes finest past........
    then the realisation that it was not in fact the Elite Force, but my rapidly disappearing 1.9 CDTI oil burner now in front of them. (no it aint a toyota)

    I look in the mirror, then you see the puff of smoke as their afterburners start kicking in, going into pursuit mode, then the angry stare as they blast pass me....... How dare I show such disrespect!!!...... priceless

    But now I feel like the Mad Max stalking the highways & byeways to & from work looking for these guys for some payback... but guess what.... nowt, , nano, nothing, where have they all gone?

    The only fun I have had, has been against the odd (arrogant) beamer (most were easy meat before the mods) who have now realised the error of their ways.

    So it got me thinking, from reading other threads,

    What was your most smugly, satisfying best burn off, hair raising intimidation tactic or just gave you the biggest smile or laugh,

    please share

    thanks

    obviously being a public forum (that can be seen in search engine searches) you observed speed limits at all times didn't you

    I had a Jaguar XF (08 plate) up my chuff in the 30mph (village), so i milked it and drove just under 30 right up the end of the signs (de restricted) and i put my foot down in 3rd and kept it there. The Jag was then no where to be seen and the guy driving it obviously didn't know how to drive these roads (very twisty) and i was easily getting away from him until i couldn't see him.

    What annoyed me most was when i got to the next village (30mph) i slowed down to the allocated speed and after a few minutes he was back up my chuff again (obviously speeding in the 30 )


    Either way, that put a smile on my face when i couldn't se him in my mirror anymore

    Oh and I forgot too add, S2000 in a straight line from Silverstone on a dual carrage way from a standing start up to 70mph when he passed me as I wasn't prepared to break the speed limit
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
