Fast drive to Montreal

Hey guys..i just got back from a week in Montreal. I had such a kickass time driving there and back ! On the way there i raced a new porsche carrera ! We started off @ 120km and gave 3 honks of the horn then gunned it I pulled ahead about a car and a half within a couple seconds and then i put the sport button on as i was gunning it and continued to pull away from him up to 220km. Then we ran into a couple slower cars on the highway and i took the lead through the cars and blew him away. It took him a little time to catch up and then we gunned it again. this time he got a little jump on me, but by 180 i was slowly passing him and pulling away.
Later on that drive (going to montreal) i ran into 3 bmw 3 series all travelling at a decent rate of speed which were being lead by a 300zx turbo. I pulled upto the 300zx (lowered, rims, exhaust, gauges, fully modded in other words) and i passed him @ 180 then he pulled upto me and we raced from 160ish. we both down shifted within a second of eachother and then gunned it in 4th. I pulled 4th up to 180 then shifted into 5th and continued to accelerate and pulled about 3 car lengths on him. That was a very very quich 300zx The 3 series cars tried to keep up but fell behind a little. The 5 of us travelled together for about 45 mins @ over 175km the entire time

then on the way back as i am about to get on the highway a new S4 pulled up beside me @ the stop light. We had a pure 2-3 mile OPEN straight away ahead of us. i looked over @ him and he gave me 2 quick revs. It sounded like an aftermarket exhaust and maybe another blot-on mod, but nothing more. So i revved back........and the countdown is on......3 2 1 .....GREEN, i dumped the clutch with sport on and Traction off. I hit a perfect start and pulled ahead of him quickly . I was chirpin the wheels all the way to 4th !! hehehehe. By the time I hit 220 i slowed down to see him about 12 car lenghts behind me HE GOT
I thought the race was over, but then he flew past me (i was doin about 170 and decellerating) keepin his speed around 200 (at least) for minutes........i let him go , and i just slowed down to around 145ish.
I had such a good time.....on the way back (850km) it took me 5 hours and 22 mins !
Fun time for all

I went to montreal on a business trip, i had an amazing time!
Beautiful city, beautiful girls, what else could you want?

My trip back took me about 4 hours or so, 1 stop and i still had 1/4 of a tank, and i started from downtown montreal!

My mother who came with me to visit some family out that way wasnt too impressed with the speeds i was doing though.. Had to turn the console lights off so she couldnt see anymore

I beat everyone so far:

3 hours 57 minutes from my DRIVEWAY to Downtown Montreal.

This included a Gas/Food/Piss break.

This was done in a 1998 Integra Type-R with 4 people in the car and luggage packed in the trunk.

I ALWAYS time my trips from my driveway to the parking spot at my destination. Some people count the "Highway Travel Time" which is bogus since A LOT of time is spent getting to and from the highway.

I'm looking forward to SMASHING that record with my E46 M3.

This might be a stupid question, but are M3 AWD or something? Because unless they are I highly doubt you got a good launch against a lightly modified S4. Just my two cents. Don't get me wrong the M3 is an amazing and dominant car, but S4's are amazing for launching.

Yeah the S4's get amazing launches, but you would be very surprised at how the M3 can get amazing launches due to the limited slip diff. When the tires are warm the M3 sticks to the ground HARD !
