How fast are you willing to go…?…are you sure now ?

Serious question…I’ve seen people buy big cars, aftermarket parts and everything in between. They haven’t really pushed it to the limit! The scene is watered down to the point people are buying stuff for the fun of it. like a mini game or spin off of what sport cars and performance parts were really used for besides getting from A to B…

*Story Mode as all events are fictional*

After 12 hour shifts of work your in a building with no windows and cool as a fridge…many tend to scatter to their vehicles and hit the limiter out the gate! Don’t blame them one bit…wait a second your daily is a Mazda 3. Don’t shed no tears for yourself…time away makes the heart grow fonder for the Z. Isn’t that the saying? What makes it not a total drag it’s a 5spd. Thank you Jesus!

Anywho…as you throw your lunch bag on the passenger seat and strap yourself into modern seat 5 passengers spacious hatch of awesome. You turn it on and begin my commute home. As your leaving the gate from your base here in Hawaii is a long straight. You notice in the rear view that a car is gaining and quickly catches your 2 liter whopping 150ish automobile.

What do you do…

Nothing you keep your speed. In Hawaii the roads are rolling and always changing direction and elevation. Knowing that you gradually increase your speed…35 <---don't ask 36 39 43 47 51 taillights still on my ass as we approach the twisties as some put it. The taillights start to dime after the first corner, second, third corner comes and goes and it's back to me alone on the road. That short section is before I have to pass through a town again. At the speed limit you noticed that those headlights belong to a newer Civic SI....not surprised. Even more so when you see it's lowered and has a drone to it...a little traffic and picking the right lane through traffic I'm cruising in front of this civic heading towards an on ramp. What doyou do... If you know yourself you guessed correctly...you punch it, now that sounds awesome and all but in a Mazda it's as exciting as vacuuming your carpet at home. Approaching the on ramp you pick your line and follow through with gradual pedal and steering input. Smooth nonetheless...at the speed limit again you get a ricer flyby from the civic and a horrible bugeye Subaru... You shake your head as you ponder on what went wrong...
