Guess I'll add context. Just cruising home, trying to find some music. All of a sudden the car 50 ft and to my left floors and and goes screaming past. I was like, ok let's see what up. So I accelerate to catch up. We are going somewhere north of 80 maybe 90 mph when he floors it and so do I. That shift is in the low 6ks in 4th which is 120 ish? Probably hit about 150 by the end. Not sure how you interpret it. I don't think people just nonchalantly go up to 150. He wanted the gap and got it.

I just mean, that's what I'm saying. Without the speed shown on the cam overlay (which anyone would be stupid to have shown lol), hard to tell how fast people were going. The context of "We got up to 150 before we let off" is some pretty affirming context of what was going down, which wasn't seen in the first video (y)

I hope you have at least a Uniden R3 affixed to this rocketship

This is a lot of my scenarios. They see me and come up and when they get almost beside me on left or right they just nail it and fly past. I then do what Diggs did, catch up, pass them and outrun them lol.

EDIT: I have an Escort radar- cuz who wants to get busted doing 150? I always slow back down to innocent speed just as soon as I've made my point to them.

How much powa you making now, but Diggs?

There's a liter bike that flys down 435 near me at quivira 3 nights a week and in the last year he's gotten pretty brave... At first he topped out 3rd, then 4th, and recently he's been making his way pretty deep into 5th gear. Never seen him, but I and everyone else within a 5mi radius of the interstate can hear him. He sounds like he needs a hatchback to "teach him a lesson" 🤣

If I have to do my water pump, I want to install MPI. No guarantees I will be able to tune for it at that time though.

If I just install MPI hardware without tuning, there's no harm in running the car, correct?
