Should I slap him now.. or later?

So I have this family member that has a 02 Honda accord 4-door. Pretty much your standard import (rims, kit, system, engine mods, ect) Anyways the car is at about 240-250hp up from the 200hp stock.

I'm talking to him yesterday and he's telling me this story of how he pulled up next to a 335i coupe on a local highway the other night and destroyed it on a straight run..

I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt and try to rationalize the story by telling him maybe the 335 didn't pull with him. Of course according to him they were both rev'n up at a red light, looked at each other and both pulled.

So I remind him that the 335 has a tt and stock is 300hp..
I wasted the next 15 min of my life listening to him tell me how bmw's twin turbo was overrated.

I found it funny saying he doesn’t know I'll have a 335 soon.

So should I slap him now or when I get my 335?

Slap him now for being ignorant and slap yourself for being dumb enough to listen to his ignorance for 15 minutes

Bring him to the meet that we're having tomorrow at Rockland Lake, NY. We're meeting up at 11:00 A.M. at the Sheraton Crossroads in Mahwah, NJ. I want to see his Accord go up against one of the 335s. I have Turbo Tuner installed, so it won't be fair. But there will be some stock 335s there. Even a 328 or 330 will burn him. Bring him and let me slap him for you. lol!

j.k.

Seriously though, I know you don't have you car yet, but if you have time, you should stop by.

Here's the link.

The last meet we had at Bear Mountain, my friend with an Accord showed up too.

you should slap him for thinking his "modZ" added 40-50 hp

even if he did exhaust, intake, software, he MAYBE OPTIMISTICALLY added 20 hp MAX

even with the "added" HP, the car is probably slower than stock with the junk he glued to it and the big subs (adding junk adds weight)


sometimes I let ricers think they beat me because it's funny to see them floor it and see how slow their cars are. Some of us like to bait ricers into flooring it.....

The big thing with him is his car is supercharged... so he thinks its the fastest thing around.. I was actually thinking of getting the s2000, but i know there changing the shape for 09 and didn't feel like waiting, plus i think the 335 is way more of a car.

Reminds me when I was subjected to a similar case of verbal diarrhea. The genius explained to me that he had 300 fwhp on his prelude because a motorswap and exhaust. I assured him my 335i being stock and probably wouldn't keep up to him (haha), but what the heck... I said $20 a race on the highway pull from 40mph. I came home $50 richer... Why 50 you ask? The tool decided after the first race to up the stakes to $50 or nothing from a stop.

As he handed me the money, he asked the specs of the motor I told him Twin Turbo.... He asked to open it and said bs... some people... never will learn.

Conclusion: Slap him...

He raced a girl in a 328i Coupe with an automatic who was in regular "D" mode.
An 02 Accord V6 with even 20-30 hp in mods (making the car 220-230 hp could pull then.

Slap him now. Or just offer to do a run for pinks.
And if his girlfriend or wife is hot, tell him you mean those pinks.

While trying to figure out if it was possible.. no effort from the 335 or it wasn't even a 335.. or he lost and just claims to have won.. i came to the realization that he might have just made up the entire thing.. i wouldn't put it pass him saying he "pulled up next to an Enzo and it didn't look or sound like it was worth anything"

He probably raced a 323.
Ricers will always think they drive the fastest cars on the planet. Nothing you can do about that.
Don't pay attention to him anymore.

Just be patient. Wait until you get yours, but let him enjoy his delusion in the meantime. He's not going anywhere; he's family. The truth will unfold in the near future, and the victory will be sweet.
