:D I had to let u guys know on the site what kind of race i just had 1 hour ago. it was the sickest race i been in probably in all my life . So heres the deal the bmw was about 3 to 4 car lenghts ahead of me and he saw me from his mirior. he hit it and i hit it an it was on. a bit scary it was we were hitting speeds of 150 on a curvy road which was scary. he had me the whole time about 3 car lenghts. i seen myself coming up on his ass at 150 no problem but a turn would come in and i would have to let off to about 100 100mph. i got to tell u he can drive as good as me .it was a great race. if i had started neck and neck it would have been a differnt story.
i got to tell u guys hitting the slight turns at 110 120 was not that comfortable, i thought at one point i was going to lose it but was ok. i think the car can be lowered a bit to avoid that problem the bmw did handle very well too. i had a 2004 m3 and an audi rs4 i got rid of to get the IS-F, i love my car, but i think i would feel more comfortable at those high speeds in a gtr all wheel drive nissan? What do u think.i was giving everything the lexus had . i can tell u this if we started same time things would have been different. or if we were in a straight line with less turns no problem i would have had him he is governed at 155 . we can go 170. hahahhahaha!!!!:D

As long as you know your limit and know when to back down. Don't force yourself and put yourself and others in danger.

Wow, sounds like some serious racing! Be careful out there on the open roads and like crazee said, so long as you know your limits and when to back out, you should be fine, just don't be crazy and get someone hurt.

Sounds like an interesting race though, would of been interesting to start off at the same time

very true the last thing i would want to do is put anyone on the road in danger and myself. that was probably the first and last time i will drive that car like that on an open road pushing 150 . not a smart decision. but it was our rival the new m3 . had to show him alittle i guess.

Is there a bit of a fudge factor in your "Fast and Furious" story of dueling sedans? I love my F, and it is the baddest mama jama I have owned, but racing a car on open roads, taking turns at 140mph......is the car that we have all grown to admire so much really capable of such a tale?
