raced a falcon

today i raced a falcon, driver was being a dick head, tailgating me ( he had a massive ass bull bar on the front of it). we had lanes on either side of us so he was purpously being a nob.. i heard him gun it and i saw outa the corner of my eye the falcon pull out next to me and gaining on me, whacked it back to 3rd and instantly started gaining. i looked back and he was almost shatting his pants, he looked heaps concentrated aswel . he had no chance what so ever, after bout 15-20 seconds i had bout 40 meters on him. lol absolutely killed him. it was a ea 3.9 multi point with manual trans. there supposed to have over 300nm of torque im led to believe. haha snapped by a party on wheels
this lil thing will be aight with a few things done to it :D
the whole incident with the bull bar left me pretty shook up tho. bull bars should be banned for road use.


Spinning first .... Chirping second ... and NEAAAAARLY chirping third. Fiesta is the word. Its more than just a party on wheels.

Re: raced a falcon

How could you tell it was a centre point and manual?

But good work. I always treat dickhead the way they should be. The other day this guy was tailgating me, so i floored it but the first slow car i found i stuck next too so he couldn't pass. He got pissed off but after 5minutes settled down as gave me some room so i let him pass.

Re: raced a falcon

well it was the same as my mates ea falcon. and when he bought his it was centrepoint. then he changed it to multi. so i guess the falcon i raced was still centrepoint.
it was also pretty noisy and u could hear his shifts.

Re: raced a falcon

sorry to rain on your party, but this is not the place to be talking about racing cars, its a public forum and this sort of talk is a no no on here
