"Raced" an Acura RDX...

So I'm driving rather close to a certain Acura dealership, and I noticed a lineup of almost 10 Acura RDX's. I pull up to the light, and notice that the light the other way just turned yellow. I stop at the line and turn to the guy driving the lead car and say "lot of the same car, eh?". He responds "Dealer training". I reply "ahhh".

Then we both glance forward, notice our light is green, and I turn back and try to say "let's give it a run", but being the *** bitch that he is, floors it. I try to get off the line as quick as possible, but by the time my car's moving, the guy's already at the other side of the intersection.

Thankfully with my new BFG KDW's up front, I had no tirespin at all through first, but I slammed 2nd and got a good healthy chirp. We "raced" until about 100.... then he let off. He didn't gain anything on me throgh the "race"....

I'm just pissed off the guy didn't line it up like a man.... but I guess he didn't want to look bad in front of his dealers.... by a Saturn wagon hahahahaha

edit: the RDX has a 2.3L turbo I4 pushing 240hp @ 6000rpm and 260ftlb @ 4500rpm with AWD, just about 4000lb curb weight, while my wagon is almost stock and pushes about 125hp @ ~5600rpm and about 125ftlb @ ~5000rpm and weighs about 2400lbs.

He didn't hear you = He didn't race you.

I dunno... most people leading a pack of 10 cars don't just floor it off the light and go a good bit past the speed limit...

could be completely wrong though.

Yes, I definitely call BS on this one, there is no way that the RDX lost to your wagon.

I ran a 16.021 @ 86.48 with a 2.368 60 foot with a 48mm TB as opposed to my current 52mm, shittier, nearly bald tires, weaksauce motor mounts (wheelhop city), and a taller geared transmission.

I'm planning on going to the track again either tommorrow or next friday... we'll see what I can pull off.

He ran a 15.5 last trip up I believe, which isnt that bad for a mostly stock saturn wagon, don't know how accurate this is http://autos.yahoo.com/acura_rdx_5_spd_at-performance/ says they do 15.7...

Yah there was some guy racing a topaz last time I was at the track...people are ****ed

hahahaha love the responses

Here's what I ran a couple weeks ago @ Cayuga. Car #703.
726 was my buddies GF's fox stang auto with just headers, her first time on the track, and 702 was a different buddies AWD Hemi durango.




And who the **** gives a what kinda car you race with? I mean, for example, turbocivic, you drive a civic, an economy car just like mine. lol.
