this was a while ago, but reading these stories made me wanna post it.
i have a 1976 320A with a 318i head.
i was thrashing thru the hills one night when i came up behind a modded 180SX, dumped to the weeds and a big exhaust.
i had to slow up and i was getting impatiant cos this guy was ruining a really good tight twisty road, so i flashed my lights at him and he got the hint.
i hear him spool up and i thought "cool he will leave me behind and i can have some fun"
well... this guy couldnt drive his thumb up his ***. i no trouble keeping up with this guy, he was sharp with his steering and crap with the brakes.
the suspention on the 180 had no travel left, so when we hit the bumpy bits his back kept stepping out on him. and this guy couldnt handle this so i backed off so he wouldnt kill himself.
it just pissed me off that i didnt have the grunt to pass him, i could out handle him and way out brake him. i have copper pads on the stock brakes, and 205's on factory mags
not bad for stock suspention hey?
