C5 Corvette messed with me

Man I just got home tonight from school, and for the second time some pissed off corvette guy had to mess with me. I was MMOB making a left onto a single lane ramp for the freeway in which the opposing traffic can make a right onto the same ramp. The moment I entered a silver corvette started tail gating me like a mad man. He was aching to get ahead of me and as we entered the double lanes to lead to the main freeway he followed close as I went between two cars, when it was close to clear I moved over and he flew past me at 120. Then slowed down for me to go up to him, I didn't want to race this guy but i can he was trying to stare me down threw his windows and watching my move.

So I said, F this! He stayed in the left lane waiting for the cars to go faster while i went around in the right lanes. He tried to mess with a C6 corvette and I caught him off guard as the cars cleared, I pushed the goat all the way in front of his lane to give a good look at the GTO's ass one more time. He once again tail gaited and I floored it at 120 where he only tried for a second to catch up and let go.

Either he had a grudge against GTO's or he wanted to see what I was capable of, in the end you want to compare machines don't start by breathing down my neck.

What a [email protected]@ss. Nice kill. Most of the vettes around here don't run(older crowd), but I've seen a couple that are setup to. And they look and sound [email protected] Like to see what their capable of. Be careful out there.

What are your mods? I'm pretty sure stock for stock a C5 is a tad faster than an 05/06 Goat due to the difference in weight.

I got no mods what so ever, the guy had a mean sound exhaust and whatever else under the hood I have no idea. Even a C5 is a tad faster cause its lighter then the GTO, but the GTO pulled out ahead.

Yea i know its the same here, i rarely ever see anyone young driving a vette and pushing it, it's mostly for the old timers. I swear that guy had an agenda and he learned the hard way.

My friend has a Ferrari yellow C5 with catback,intake,and dyno tune.He's always racing people on the street.I've never witnessed it,but the cars he says he's beaten are pretty stout and quite honestly I don't see how it was possible,but I really have no reason to NOT believe him..........I guess he's a helluva driver.

I've thought about running him,but I'm not a racer so he'd have the drivers edge for certain.I have headers,catback,and tune so pushing more power,but he is lighter.

well he's lighter but then he's probably then making enough HP at the wheels to match the GTO, then finally comes down who's got the higher limits when it comes to driving their machine. I was ready to take this guy to 140 if i have to.

He dynoed close to 330 rwhp and I dynoed 361 rwhp so with him being 500 pounds lighter I don't think I can beat him.

Oh and the fastest I've been is 140.

Yea you can, i'm guessing the shut down on the governor is higher on yours than his. You just gotta have confidence in yourself, focus, and go for it.

The C5 also has alittle more meat in the back to transfer HP to the ground. The edge going to the vette. It being lighter and the ls2 GTO have some more horses, anything can happen on the street. It's a worthy kill. And frankly the other driver had it coming.

yup exactly true, i mean I never expect this from another GM owner, you think there be some kind of mutual respect between GM owners. however i do have to think some guys are just corvette obsessed and except no equal

When I'm out cruisin,I never look at other GM performance vehicles in the way I do others such as Ford and Dodge.I just want to kill every Ford and Dodge out there and consider other GM cars like family.That may sound corney,but that's just the way I feel.

I'm always on the look out for a Mustang,Challenger,or SRT-4 to possibly run.

Exactly! I do the same thing, I see everything else as a challenge/threat that isn't a GM. But you know sometimes, corvette guys aren't acting much different from mustang owners

And when you run into a new Camaro? You know they will be gunnin for us. In the past, when I run up on an older camaro or f-body, it's a pretty much a respectful and cool encounter.
We GM cars my be out numbered, but not out gunned.
