Yup, that's the same one. The fat challenger, who was the most obnoxious person I've ever seen, blew the turbo on his RX-7, the clutch on his Miata, and the engine on his 323 (which was actually pretty quick), but he couldn't beat Mike's Civic. I think it had something to do with the fact that his fortune in mods were selected and installed by him and his dorky friends, who looked like high school kids, rather than a professional.

: : I saw an A&E "investigative reports" on street racing in a Canadian city ...

: Not to mention all the reliability of a 60s MG and enough obviously non-street legal parts to accumulate thousands per year in illegal equipment citations. What an idiot.

: I saw a similar Canadian report also; maybe the same one. The main guy was a big strapping rotund fellow with a bristly face and a protruding brow. He simply could not beat the other guy, and kept taking his car in for mods and dyno, etc. On his final challenge run, he blew the engine. I had the impression that the poor car might have had a chance, had it not had such a huge driver.

: I also had the same impression: idiot.
