First off, some of you might remember my 2002 that I drive; well it has been broken for some time since I have been at college. So while I am home on my winter break I have been driving my mom's passat wagon V6. not a bimmer, but still german made.

So I have been dying since I have not been able to drive the canyons lately, so I decided to take the passat up mullholland last night. I turn onto the slighyly windy road connecting me to the mountain pass and there is a Kouki S14 (97-98 nissan 240 SX) ahead of me going pretty quick. I stay pretty close to him and right before we get to the tight canyon he pulls over. I roll my window down to talk and it turns out he knows me and my 2002 through forums and from spiff's website (sticky-flo.com). so I tell him to go first since I probably won't keep up in my front wheel drive WAGON.

There is not much more to the story from that point except that I was on his ass the entire way up the hill. I don't mean I could just see him, I was no more than half a car length back the whole time. He made two mistakes, hitting the apex of two turns massively early causing extreme understeer (mistakes I predicted he would make) and each time I was able to position myself within inches of his bumper after he corrected.

After talking with him at the top of the hill, he suggested I go first down. It took me all of two turns to loose him.

I love taking people to school in cars that are superior to mine. Hopefully there will be more to come when my 02 is finally fixed this week.

both cars were automagic. if the driver had more experience, I would not have really stood a chance. but he didn't know the line very well and I can damn near drive the road blind
