Raced a Aventador and a AMG SLS last night

so there I was last night in my stock 2014 SRT Viper minding my own business cruising the Howard Franklin Bridge in Tampa with the cruise control on 65 mph.. when I hear a nice sounding car to my left side.... my eyes could not believe what I was seeing, a matte black Lamborghini Aventador.. im thinking ,finally I get to have a real race with a real supercar(one of my dream cars if I ever hit the lottery)

Anyways I down shifted to 3rd gear at around 75mph and I waited at first I didn't think he was going to race but all of a sudden he took off.. I had to play catch up when two cars meet with that much power normally whoever gets the jump will pull and stay ahead unless the other car is significantly more powerful and faster .I'm still learning this car my shifts were really bad I hit the rev limiter twice because I was afraid to shotry shift terrible driving on my part I am NOT making up excuses because he got the jump not only that his transmission is shifting at speeds that are faster than my eye blanks

We only got up to about a 130mph and then he stopped..I wanted to do a 1 2 3 go race but he would never rolled down his window or say let's go he would just take off at will making it impossible for me to get a fair race now ..I'm not saying that my car would have pulled on him but it would have been a closer race or maybe even tie ....if I learn when to shift right in this car lol i only have 800 miles of regular driving on it no practice lunches or anything..red line approaches very quickly when you're racing and trying to pay attention to that and drive.

You're probably thinking why did you not shift when the tachometer turned red... because I didn't see it lol....that's how much adrenaline was going through me .We raced about four different times in and out of traffic I got the jump on him only once which at that time he wouldn't go as fast as he needed to go to pass me if he could, my top speed was 157 mph my exit was approaching in about 1 mile when I looked in my rearview mirror and saw a Mercedes AMG SLS he pulled up on side of me and there was no way I was getting off the highway needless I end up going 40 miles out of my way lol

I took down the AMG with no problem several different times at this point he would only try and pass me when I was not trying to race but i would track him down anyway and pass him.I went around 60 miles out of my way round trip just to race those two vehicles.It was worth it to me I had a blast oh before I forget one more thing after that 157 mph run we all ended up slowing down to about 65 70mph and just in time because right around the bend of the highway on the shoulder was a Florida State Trooper with his lights off I passed him doing 67 mph in a 70 mile an hour zone somebody was watching out for me and the other two cars on the road that night lol

The Lamborghini guy pointed to the cop i flash my headlights and SLS flashed his headlights..I got off at the next exit drove to the gas station and went home got dressed to go out for the night and when I went back into town (Tampa Florida) I ended up seeing another Viper it had the carbon fiber aero kit on it but I cannot tell if it was a GTS , SRT or a TA I tried catching up to him he was about 300 feet in front of me but the speed limit was 45 and I would have to had to do about 70mph on a regular street to catch up with him and he kept trying to get away from me for some reason

.We were coming up to a red light where I thought I will pull up next to him and talk to him but he took the yellow and turn I could not tell if he could see me or not but a viper knows another Viper headlights when they see them and every time I got close to him he pulled further away could have been a coincidence but I guess I will never know...what a awesome night for me on the road I was so pumped!! just thought I would share

SLS should be an easy take down, Aventador is a beast from a roll. One car to watch out for, don't tangle with the McLarens whether the 12C or 650, it'll be ugly... ridiculously fast. Saw a roll race betwen the 12C with updated ECU and a simple tuned 997TT and it just walked away from the 997TT with ease, crazy fast car, they trap like 135 even in the summer at PBIR, just nutz for a stock car. They have some aftermarket mods for them now, I know Fabspeed was cooking up stuff with bolt ons and tuning.

But you got tuning now for the Gen Vs, couple bolt ons and a tune and these cars fly, there's a recent vid on here of a bolt on Gen V vs a stock Gen V and the bolt on one ran away from the stock one.

Years ago 27 used to be an awesome road to just fly on with nary a worry, not now. We used to haul ass to our lake house. Now theres state troopers everywhere and durring the day they have planes also tracking you. I remember one day we had the cruise on about 100 the whole way, can't do that now.

I ran an Aventador from a roll in my '13 SRT, from about 65-120. Dead even. I figured the Lambo would pull on me, but it didn't.

I've been on that bridge many times and can only imagine what a great time you must have had. Would have loved to see a video of both cars on that run!

that is good to know if we took off at the same time it would be an even race but like I said he would take off first and then I would take off

if I said it was awesome that would be an understatement. I really wish that I had video I'm going to invest in a GoPro shortly knowing my luck something like this will never come again once I get the camera lol
