Default Raced a McLaren P1 last night! - 11-20-2017, 09:31 AM

And lost. Badly. The ****ing taillights looked like the Starship Enterprise going into warp speed. I've never been pulled so hard in my entire life. And I was grinning like an idiot the whole time.

I was rolling down a fairly clear stretch of Dixie Highway in Boca Raton and saw a crazy set of headlights coming up behind me pretty hard. The weather was nice this weekend, and it looked like every super car owner in S. FL decided to get them out, so I was expecting a Lamborghini or something similar that I could have a little fun with. I hammered it to match his speed, he noticed and wasn't having any of it. I got a little bit of wheelspin (need new tires), but it didn't matter. The thing came screaming around me like it had been launched out of a cannon. He put bus lengths on me in just seconds.

And then he came to redlight. There was a car in the left lane and he had the right lane, so I rolled up behind him. I wasn't sure if he'd go or not, and I was just going to give him a thumbs up if I could get around him, but he went. The way these things leave the line just boggles the mind. It seriously looked like something out of a science fiction movie. By the time I'd caught traction and shifted to second he was eight or ten car lengths out, and it just got worse from there. I hit 100MPH and he was going over the bridge half a mile away.

I need a better job.

But you raced a completed different animal, you raced a MP4 12C. The P1 is "THE" car.
Nice race though.

This one was actually black (or that dark plumb color maybe). I was staring at the back of it the whole time so I can't be sure.
