Was running an errand in the DC Z with Hincapie yesterday.

I was just tooling along in the DC Z at the speed limit and I see in the rear view mirror a ricer in a silver Honda rapidly snaking through traffic to catch up to me.

It was a 6 lane road, he comes flying up my left... well... to do a fly by. He had to have been doing 30mph faster than me, but the second he was at my side mirror I threw the DC Z from 5th to 2nd and put my foot to the floor.

The sound volume was outrageous, needless to say he was reading my license plate pretty quick as the car simply unloaded and launched like it was injected with liquid cocaine.

Anyway, this guy was a GREAT sport, he changed lanes over to the far right lane, came up on the passenger side and was a totally cool dude, all thumbs up and smiles with a "THAT WAS ****ING KICK ASS!!!" look on his face.

I smiled and wave back to the guy. It was a good time, seems he really just wanted me to stand on it and knew he didn't stand a chance.

So, I showed off. :D

It's times like this I wish 'video' was more readily available! I'd love to have been in the passenger seat when you dropped it from 5th to 2nd!

Glad to know that when he had his a-s-s handed to him...he was a good sport! :thumbsup:

Good to hear the DC-Z has not been retired to track use only Patrick. It still has some "Schooling" left to do on the streets...:laughing:

BTW - too bad you didn't get the other ricer's phone number as you could have set up a race between the two. :rolling:

I really, really, really try to avoid it. You can hear the DC Z 3 miles away.... not a good idea to stab the throttle too much around town unless you want the government to deploy the National Guard.:laughing:

I was gonna say, didn't that ricer hear you? I sure wouldn't fool with a vette that loud. Oh well nice kill, and glad the ANG*(Air/Army National Guard) didn't wipe you out! BTW I wish my car sounded as bad-ass as the DC-Z.

He probably didn't hear the DC Z, as his fartcan was probably louder? :laughing: Seriously though, EVERY single Civic I've seen in 24 days in the USA (came home yesterday:D) had a friggin' fart can:crazy:
