WELL...
The M4 was a right playground around lunchtime yesterday...

Firstly came across a new Scumby STI who obviously thought the GTR was standard and even flashed me. Er big mistake pal.
the 4th to 3rd gearchange and then flat into 4th so dealt with that and he backed off quite some. sweet.

Best of all was the DB7 V12 Vantage. some 440 BHP machine with a wiehgt of 1630 KGs I have since learnt.
Well come across him in 5th, he in front driving like king of the road. sees the GTR decides to go for it, me then in 4th we are level for a bit, but cams and turbos kick in and I am nearly in his boot.
He pulls over, is flat to the floor and away I pull.
GUTTED. of course he then gives me the finger sign and tells me I am an idiot, but it is ok for him to drive like a loon beforehand.
As I said through the window....you need a quicker car mate and IT IS A DATSUN!!!
I laughed all the way down the M4.
a proper kill.

my thoughts exactly!!

thinking of getting a sticker in the back....

" er just in case you are wondering...it's a datsun and yeah, you just been GTRd. Remember and spread the word"

Man he was SO pissed especially after the killing... He must have gone back to the office, got on the phone to aston and said..."I thought you told me this is one of the quickest road cars around"

I just love that sort of kill

so, if the aston is flat to the floor, and you're pulling past him, and you're on the M4, i'm thinking you were doing quite a speed...

how then would you have had time for the:-

and how would he have heard it?


any just maybe he wasn't foot to the floor? could you see his foot?

poetic license dude

poetic license. let me have a bit of glory!! :D

I did manage to look across and smile at him, see his enraged face and looking at me in pure amazement... and hope he is a good lip reader. I did manage to get out "DATSUN"

Speed? What speed?

Trust me...the amount of noise and junk/black smoke that came out the back of the aston...he was well and truly flat.

got killed

Made the mistake of playing with some proper bikes last night - for some reason Guildford and surrounds were full of bikes at around 10:00 last night.

I should know better as I used to ride one but couldn't help trying to play - a nice group of 5 or so bikes including R1, GSXR1000, Blade gave me a nice reminder of superbikes 30-120 acceleration.

Must give Abbey a call with the company Amex in hand ... ;-)

perhaps I should invest 4k in a R1 or Blade and terrify myself that way? Do miss the instant go - don't miss the mungo's in volvo's though ;-)

A3

I've had a few blasts along the A3 at 160mph-180mph and have had bikers shake their head in disbelief when trying to keep up.

class!!

any news yet GR?
I have noticed bikers are wary of skylines these days and always nod their respect.

I have heard a few "stories" around bikers of " well I thought it was std, looked pretty std, but I could not catch him!!"

Winner.

My Car

Mark @ Abbey has confirmed my block is cracked.

Abbey will be rebuilding the car, some interesting parts are currently flying over from Japan.

The full spec has not been finalised, but let's just say it will be bigger capacity and more powerful..........

lmao ... nice one! I've always wanted to see a pretentious Aston driver get blasted ... ever since a Vantage shot past me in my XR4i (I was a kid ok!) a few years ago and nearly sucked my damn windscreen out!

did a similar thing to a TVR Cerbera on Sunday. he came hairing up behind me so I pulled over to let him by. as he came past I though I'm not having that and gave chase in 5th from about 80, loads of lag afterall I was just cruising. then we are going through the s's on the A23 southbound and back up the other side, the road opens into 3 lanes and I was with him as he put his foot down (3rd this time) nearly drove into his boot !! he pulled over at about 145 and I pissed past him, he gave a wave I gave a wave, all good fun.

that was the second proper my cars faster than your car line up...

cool

LOL, All good fun!! :D

I've come across quite a few fools in Civic and Integra Type R's who for some reason think their car's are quick...

A quick blast down the road to soon find out their hot hatch is not so hot... :)

One even pulled up to me at the lights (I slowed down for him) and said he was running out of fuel!!

hehe lmao :D
