Alright, So I'm not much for stories, telling them or otherwise. I am looking for the guy that smoked me...
I have an Acura NSX racing edition and was plowing up the 5 N to LA. The highway is so wide and it was 2 in the morning (best time to travel in So Cal if you dont know) so I had a lane to myself with little to no traffic ahead or behind. I saw headlight approaching from the rear FAST! I slowed down afraid it might be a cop but instead it was a higher end BMW which i could tell from the headlights as they neared. The Bimmer pulled up even with me and sat. I sped up, he sped up, I slowed down, he slowed down. I began to become enraged that somone would mess with me at 2 in the morning as I am minding my own business.
Im gana smoke him I decided. I dropped into 3rd at 80 and began to tear away. He quickly caught up and pulled just ahead of me and let off on the acceleration to match my own. His licence place said icarkits and on either side of the plate on the actual bumper it said "www" and on the other side "com" Some kind of internet yuppie I figured as my teeth grinded together nearly as powerfully as I grinded 5th to 6th In my fury to beat this guy. I cannot tell you the speed I was going because I didnt feel safe looking down and I couldnt take my eyes off of that icarkits guy. Once I topped off though I can tell you that other than directly infront of me I could see nothing, the sides were just a blur. When my car could squeze no more out of 6th gear, ol' icarkits grew cocky and literaly "took off" The acceleration was uncanny and from that speed nearly rediculous. I can tell you that it was a BMW ISR3 and that the Licence plate was "icarkits"
I am looking for you... Does anybody know this guy or anything about him?
There is nothing there to indicate something like a rare Roadster (ISR 3) as company vehicle or show car or something. I have sent an email but they must think I am crazy saying that I want a second shot at racing the icarkits car. I havnt heard back yet but I am skeptical. I checked alot of forums for icarkits to see if there is someone with that login... plus that is 8 letters long and only a handfull of states allow 8 letter custom plates.
Ill keep everyone updated. Tell me if you hear about this guy.
