At last, the race id been waiting for. After driving around for a while id had a few good ones, including one Skyline GTS (new style, two tone paint) 2.5 turbo (not the ultra fast GTR twin turbo) any after racing him several times weve decided that our cars are pretty much even. We took lots of video clips on my little DV cam of my experiences racing this guy and ill upload them soon. Off the line he cheats every time (goes on orange) and he is the nuttiest skyline driver ive ever seen. As he followed me around roundabouts it was like watching one of the Skyline Drift videos - this guy took *every* corner sideways! Our cars were even on acceleration so i was very pleased with that to say the least.
Anyway, the race of the century was this: a mk.2 172. Id previously raced this guy before but when he was 3 up and me 2 up, this time we were both 2 up. One of them consisted of an off the lights special and he got slightly better traction but i soon caught him and past him in third gear - perhaps he missed a gear?
The best race occured onto a large motorway. I lured this victim onto it up a slip road and i could see him understeering. He was virtually joined to my bumper and we were both off accelerating flat out. My friend with the camera had it pointed backwards and you can just watch his head lights get further and further away as i toast him. I couldnt believe it, i was just pulling away like a train - my third gear seems to be the most effective, but all in all he was quite badly toasted. Possibly the evidence of a slow Clio 160 or something? maybe this guy had bought a bad one. It was blue and number plate read R002 or something.
I really want to take my car quarter miling just to test the cars performance.
