The gerbil of death takes another soul...

Was driving around in San Luis Potosi the other night when, I came up to a red light and saw a set of HIDs bouncing along behind me. Was some young bnr kid in a black yaris with a fart can, cut springs, and the hubcaps that look like mesh wheels... He revved the tiny motor for all it was worth and stared at me for a while. I figure this was probably the only race i would ever get with a car that's in the same category as mine. Why not.

Dig: Light turns green, we go I get out on him about a car or so from the get go, then once by the end of second i'm out about 2-3 cars... No need to go any further. I pop it in fifth and cruise on to the Federali Highway. He speeds past me and flashes his hazards, I have never felt so disrespected in my life... But I let it slide this time, as i was too damned bust watching my MPG meter go down one tenth to care...

CLIFFS:
09 Fit sport beats Yaris from a dig to about 50mph...
Story, not cool
I really shouldn't race this piece of doo-doo
When did bnrs have credit to buy a newer car?

Dude.. slow racing was fun. The races usually end near speed limit and feel like it's taking a 1/4 mile! lol

Good runs! That thing sounds mean!

Thanks man, I really want to find an EP3 that's close to stock to see how I would do... With the mods I have, the tune, +- 300lbs advantage in weight, and a closer gear ratio, I think it would be a good race... Problem is I don't think there are any EP3s out there that are still stock lol

Based on your title, I assumed you drove a Kia Soul

I think that EP3 is broken or cursed. It was rather close to the Kia in speed.

If you're in houston, my 09 Rio wants a piece. I'm going to lose because the fit has more HP from factory and you have mods on top of that.

I'm in San Antonio, but the next time I'm in Houston, I'll see what's up.
