Surprised CTS-V

red light on park drive in front of bestbuy. beautiful blk cts v pulls to my left and starts rocking. i'm going straight to beacon and he would have to pass me to go the same direction or merge left. light turns green and i'm off, he pulls to my door hard but his lane turns left so he backs off and pulls behind me. the look on his face in my rear view mirror was disappointment especially with his girlfriend beside him. oh well, better luck next time. thumbs up for the bimmer.

A new CTSV would destroy most N54/N55s. If it was a first gen CTSV, it would make this story a lot more believable. I used to own one. Either way, cool stuff

i think my reaction time was a little quicker than his giving me enough of a lead that he could not overcome within the given distance.

His car is rear wheel drive which means most likely his traction kicked in and wouldn't let him put the full 556 horsepower to the ground.

You may feel big but you aren't. CTS V destroys the N54/N55 unless you have full bolt on's + meth. Maybe even upgraded turbo's.

who are you to say i feel big. if a cts v cannot get all its power to the ground because of its traction control, thats not my problem. too bad. this was a real race on a city street in the real world, not a race track. red light to red light. for your info, i do have some dinan upgrades which helped i'm sure. your just a hater. man, i thought bimmer members stuck together but i guess i'm wrong. other make forums are more loyal to each other.

This is what I expected to see. Most other forums I've been on would delete all street racing posts and warn/ban you if you don't stop.



I'm not "hatin" but I just don't see the point of the thread. You are just bragging that you beat one guy in an illegal street race to strangers. What did you expect?

i guess times have changed, people don't speed anymore, or have alittle fun on the streets. i'm old school, you people are too civil for me. you should trade your bimmers in for a prius. all the forums ive been to still post kill threads but i guess bimmer owners are too full of themselves to do so. high nosed. i'm not bragging, just thought some people on this forum might enjoy such things but i guess not.

"small kill story" under the N55 tuning section, he gets praised and positive feedback. his thread not deleted or banned. i guess someone is a liar and a hypocrite.

Well I did say OTHER forums...

I'm really not trying to rain on your parade or anything. I have fun on the street where its safe, but that certainly doesn't include racing in crowded ass Boston. I don't care about street racing honestly, the only reason it bugs me is you can hit someone else.

If it was you and him on a road in PA or something I'd be cheering you on.


I'm more of a donuts in the parking lot kinda guy myself, that way worst case I crash into a pole or building or something and just feel stupid, no one else in danger. Even that I really grew out of for the most part.

i don't drive around looking for races anymore, but if someone comes up beside me and starts rocking, i'm not backing down. i like to see what other cars can do, win or lose. when its over you give props and leave unless your a snob like the guy in the cts-v. its all for fun, and never out of control like the above corvette video.
