After installing my Jb4 a few months ago I'd been waiting for the perfect opportunity to test out the power against a car I thought would put up a good fight.
A few days ago I came across a Lexus ISF on some nice quiet back roads and immediately knew this was my opportunity. I pulled up next to him at a red light, but couldn't get his attention. I proceeded to slowly accelerate next to him until about 30mph when I hit the gas and took off.
After pulling to about 60 I let off and let the ISF catch back up to me. Again, I tried to get his attention, but he still did not show much interest - I think he was thinking it would be pointless to race because I didn't stand a chance.
Another mile down the road we pull up to another red light and this time I wasn't holding back. I hammered the gas down to the floor and my Super Sports immediately started screeching, but the immense grip wouldn't fully let go. A quick look in the mirror revealed a cloud of smoke and a surprised face on the ISF drivers face.
At this point - I knew I had him hooked.
He got on the gas an caught up to me once I let off, and finally acknowledged my gestures to race.
I gave him the sign to go first and let him go WOT before I started pulling myself. We started from 30 and his jump immediately gave him a decent lead. 30-60mph went by quickly as I was thrown back in the seat due to the immense torque from my 40% e85 mixture.
By 60 I had closed the gap from his head start - we were literally side by side at 60, but not for long! Once I shifted into 3rd and hit max boost the race was over way quicker than it started.
1 car length ahead, 2 car lengths ahead, nearly 3 car lengths ahead - for a moment I forgot I was even racing. It was like a typical pull that I do for fun with the cars in my mirrors slowly turning into blurry little dots as I rocketed away.
I finally let off at about 120mph at which point I had put a healthy 3+ car lengths on the ISF and it was only getting worse. At the next red light I tried to give the guy a respectful wave and he would not turn his head my way. Finally as the light changed green he gave me a quick thumbs up and turned off the road to do his own thing.
That was officially my first JB4 kill and I was very happy with the results as I certainly wasn't expecting to kill an ISF that badly!
My mods were JB4 Map 5, DCI's, and ~40% e85 - I was running 15.5 PSI max boost tapering to ~11.5 PSI near redline.
