Red SKYLINE - My best kill yet
Don't know what spec it was but it looked a beast.
Coming out of St Ives on the way to the A14. He was 2 cars behind me. I clocked him in my mirror as we headed towards the dual carriageway, practicing in my mind what to do. Just as the Spitfire pilots would with a BF109 behind them.
The other cars leave the main road and he is right where I want him when you join the A14 (once round the bend it is a perfect launch strip where you merge with the dual carriageway.
So I dribble round the bend slowly and flick the O/D button. I waited until he was round the bend too otherwise that wouldn't be gentlemanly.
Now it is time
I floor the throttle and get up to 14.5psi (my max until I get me downpipes) To my amazement he is trying but not keeping up !!!
A couple of miles later I pull to the inside lane to let him past to see what he can do. I wanted to make sure he was trying and I had a legit kill.
Sure enough, when the traffic clears in front of him he boots it and black smoke puffs out from his phat exhaust, but again I just reel him in like a dead kipper.
I can always nail Skylines on my Playstation but didn't think it would be so easy on real tarmac.
And I had a flat rear tyre. Bit silly really. When we parted I gave him thumbs up and an indicator wink but he didn't seem to reply.
If your reading Mr Skyline you know I nailed you!
