Re: Turbo 1 engine hardware limit
oh .. forgot
add to list
1 .. metro toronto police cruiser .. caprice classic that had 60kph rolling start vs my standing start
me.... first across 4 lane intersection right as light turned green just as the caprice entered my right side blind spot
3 am one summer morning
I went , for a ride , not even playing around
drove past my high school and down the long hill to stop at the lights in the valley below
sitting there waiting for the light I notice , REALLY notice a pair of headlights comming down the hill sooo fast they look like they're falling straight down outta the sky...
hummmmmmm .. I've been hit by a drunk before like this ...
ain't gonna ever happen twice
kick throttle , check mirror and lights
light's begin to change over...nice .. that's handy right now..
check the mirror .. yep it' IS in the same lane behind me and it's STILL coming
it just goes to red so 3 seconds to green
hit throttle again
hit throttle , hold down side step clutch
ya I see it swerve to go past on the right at the exact moment I leave
so .. at the far side of the intersection I lift
I don't need to go any faster .. and I'm really not much over the 60kph posted limit either..
this as the white fender with the red and blue stripe pulls alongside my door
I know what THAT is ..lol
the conversation that followed was fun ..
me standing beside the cop in his car ... as maybe it should be
ya know .. hello officer who are you and just WHAT are YOU upto this evening "sir"...
he and his slack jaw rookie partner were kinda stumped after I described "seeing him coming" while squatting beside his car and leaning on the door
I used my fingertips to represent headlights FALLING from the sky
at kinda an uncomfortable , three stooges poke in the eyes kind of distance ...
followed my my reply to "so what , lookin for hookers?"
to which I replied , no that's your job and I wouldn't wanna get in trouble with your union for doin' YOUR job..
so , how many times do ya need to get beat before you stop trying ? is the moral there
hint thinkin you can't be beat is loss number one...
