I want to thank those who run this site for their dedication and for keeping this site going through the years. To have a really good Regal GS, one has to have an extraordinary level of dedication to the car that includes a long-term commitment to it, and not just a passing fancy. Similarly, to the people that keep this site going through the years had to have a similar level of dedication and commitment to keeping it going. I just want to tip my hat, pay my sincere respect to this level of commitment, and say thank you. I will try to contribute what I can. I know that these cars are 20+ years old now and a lot of people have moved on from them, but I want to be counted as one of the ones that stuck with them for the long-term. I hope to see others that love their Regals be active here in this site, and for the Regal community to support each other. Count me in.
Ya, most of the original wave of active members have changed vehicles to something (probably) less mod-friendly, with the occasional person in an LS or Hemi that they do some bolt-ons to. Kinda sad that forums faded.
So I understand this better you have a near stock GS (so called soft mods whatever that is) and a SRT8 Jeep tried to pass you on the right and you wouldn't let him? Is that correct so far? Forgive me I'm gettin old and a little slow, I'm from Texas.
And i run the same oil some nascars do.. 10w30 texas refinery corp, trans fluid, fuel octane/diezelene for anyone who is familiar with trc products.. All the soft mods as well.. Cant wait for summer!
And this "nascar" oil you use that makes your car faster? I run Royal Purple in my hot rods I must be doing it wrong?
Ok getting back to the encounter with the Jeep... your stock GS will not outrun a SRT8 Jeep unless he just didn't care and let you go or it was a regular Jeep which you would spank pretty easy.
Yesterday I had to stop by the office to pick up some duct tape to fix the broken window from the kids throwing the football around (I'm pissed) so I decided to take the GS out.. My rental office is in a mall parking lot, as I was pulling out to leave I waited on a gold CTS that was coming he was in the left lane as he drove by I pulled out in the right lane a couple of hundred feet or so I am right beside him and then he decides to turn right from the left lane lucky for me I saw it in time and jerked the car to the right while on the brakes laying on the damn horn!
Huge parking lot no one else around and this idiot trys to run over me. I was already pissed off from the window and now this dumbass! He wouldn't get out of the car so I finally just blew em off and left.
On the way back home I was caught behind some slow cars, once I got a opening I took off around them and I then noticed a car coming with me tight on my bumper. I saw the Mazda emblem so I didn't think to much about it, he came around me on the left and I realized it was a Speed 3. We stopped at the light. He wanted some so I was about the lay the smackdown on his ass!
The light went green I spun the tires pretty bad but still we were side by side I caught traction and pulled him by 4 or 5 car lengths. It could have been worse but I let off. At the next light he says damn what the hell is in that thing I'm just laughing asking him is that all you got? He asked is it supercharged? I said yeah it's supercharged and made the right turn. I have to go home and tape up the broken window.
