Last night I encountered an RX7 while crusing around 80MPH. At first he was just checking me out. So I shift to manumatic and down shift so he can hear the stillen breathe. After that I take off. I guess I surprised him, because I got about three car lengths and then he decided to have me for a snack. I noticed a few others joining in while we are flying. A Benz, Neon SRT, Lex, and Acura. It was fun. I was in second behind the Rx7. Everyone else was in the back but close. Once we all get to a traffic light, we check each other out, and acknowledgements are traded. then we all disappear. The benz turned out to be the S500. He couldn't hang with me as I played with him in manu. mode. Oh I remembered to disable the VDC to direct the power to the rear. Feels good. Just thought I had to share this with the rest of the FX family. Our FX's are overpowering and intimidating to everyone. :) :evilbat:

Hmmm...Our previous dragstrip results showed no significant difference with or without VDC. S500 must have been an older model cuz even the 2001 did 6.0 for 0-60/14.4 quarter (motortrend numbers)...obviously drivers skills would make a difference too. You don't have the supercharged 35, do you?

No I don't. I will not make that commitment until I get closer to the end of my warranty. It was a newer model S. The windows were all tinted out so it was hard to tell who was driving. But that doesn't matter. It all comes down to if you know how to drive. :)
I know that an S can beat an FX but I know that our FX's give Shock :shock: and Awe :eek: before they realize that we have good acceleration, and by that time it is too late even if its 1 second. The 2nd gear has the most torque which really gives us an edge if we get a jump on the other vehicle.
I know that the 500 series benz can whomp us . I raced a CL 5 from a standstill and he had me from the light. He didn't get too far as I noticed that the distance between us pulled closer towards the end of road. Kearny, backroad area located off of 280 near post office for the Jerseans who know where I am talking about.
I also didn't have the Stillen/ Z-tube set-up when I raced the CL. :)

:lol: Hey Dawn, anticipation is a B%#@!. You will find someone crazy enough too play. The intake growl+exhaust note is scary enough. You give them a sample while sitting at the light. It is best when their car is low to the ground and you are right on top of them. Let them hear you roarrr, then their tail goes tucked between their legs. :lol:

I know. Its always nice. Everytime I see one I give it the warm welcome of a flash. By the way the guy that you referenced me to, never emailed me back, for the D2S 10K hids. Do you have any other suggestions? :) This is to My-Sweet 45. :)

I only seem to meet them when the family is in mine. Today we were coming back from the Dulles Town Center mall, and got behind a Harley that went flying from the light...I kept up, and noticed a Lexus IS behind me trying to keep up. I really wanted to open it up, but my wife would have read me the riot act....**** luck :cry:

The IS300 in nice. I noticed one, as we were pulling onto Rt.22 @ the same time, trying to accelerate pass me but he couldn't even get one car length close. as I slowed down, he looked over at me as if I had manhandled him. Literally. :lol:

Yeah, I've had one previous IS kill 8)...that's probably been my favorite so far since all the others were mostly crapmobiles. :?

Must of been stock.

My IS300 would have taken any FX35! (except for anyone with boost) :p
