I was coming home from work today, minding my own....saw a nice E36 M3 going the other way so I pulled a U and cauht up to him at the next light. he had an exhaust on it, sounded nice. He wasn't game to run so I gave a wave and drove on. I made another U to go home figuring I would just take it easy back to the house.

I see a firebird up ahead, look to see if its a WS-6 and don't see the badge on it, I got ahead of him for a second and saw he had the big ass ram air hood on it.

So we are at the red light and I glance over at him, he is looking ahead not looking over. I figure he isn't going to try anything and chill. So the light turns green and I start off normally in 1st, shift to second and hear him hit it. I hit it at 3K in second and he gets ahead to by 1/2 a cl. The RPMs come up(I had the ast-c disengaged from earlier) te mototr wound up fast and I caught hi faster. We were next to each other dead even through second and into third. Got a little more into third gear and I start to walk him pretty fast, I quickly put three cl between up and hit the flashers for a blink.

I shut down and took it easy to the next light. He tucked in behind a van and went slow the rest of the way and I gave him a wave as I was turning off to go hom but I dont think he saw me.

Rack another one up for SibenWulf.

Ok, Help me out here.

What are the rules to racing from a light?

How fast/far do you race? Is it until someone gives up/backs off?

What are the rules?

What does "hitting the flashers for a blink" mean?

Thanks,
Joe

its adopted from races with spectators. cause from the start line it can be hartd to see who won, so the winner turns on his flashers. its just a way of signaling that your done racing. some time its misused, called the ricer fly and flash, when a ricer flys by you then turns on his flashers as if you were racing him

im so hardcore. i dont even have cup holders

Thanks Hoppy

Makes perfect sense.

What other racing etiquette can you tell me about?

How do you know on the street who wins?

Is it who backs off first?

Aren'tteh firebirds just a 6cly? The TA's with the WS6 are what u have to watch for, maybe you have the terminology wrong.

Alpine White 328 IS, Pioneer Head Unit, Jensen Band pass box, debaffled air box w/ K&amp;N filter, supersprint exhaust. clear corners and side markers, More to come....

I do, and it was most likely the V8 if it had the large ram-air style hood unless he replaced it.

well it damn sure sounded like an 8. I think if it was a 6 I would have left him MILES behind.
