Dusted An Integra...Then Pulled Over...In My IDI!!!

This is a story I should've put up a while ago, but never really thought about it. When I 1st got my IDI, I knew it was in need of some TLC. The previous owner did NOT have a single clue about diesels(or regular vehicle maintainence for that matter!). I put the PSD away to drive around the IDI to see if any check engine lights or any other problems that would arise in the near future. A few of the things that the previous owner completely failed on were his choice in shocks & whatever his "mechanic" jimmy-rigged for exhaust. All 4 shocks were completely dead & everytime you went over the slightest bump, it literally sounded like violent thunder inside the cab. I could only imagine what it sounded like outside the truck. & the exhaust(which is still on it)is definitely for a gasser @ 2 1/2". It has some "cheapo-depot" muffler & exhaust pipe on it that I'll bet my life is probably starving the rig for some extra MPGs & whatever performance you could squeeze out of it. The upside of the exhaust is with a V-8 N/A IDI, it makes it sound like a little hotrod, so naturally I'd romp on it just to hear the exhaust @ stop signs & red lights with the windows open.

Anyway, I had taken the truck's tires off to see what I needed for steering, suspension, & brake parts(the truck's finally up on jackstands now.......this is last year when I checked all of this, so you can see where my priorities lie). The most apparent item that needed to be changed were the brakes. The front brakes were completely uneven & the back brakes were so skinny, I don't think they were stopping by friction.......they were stopping by magic. I put the brakes & the tires back together.........& took it out for another spin.

I'm on my way to get some fuel & everytime I came to a stop, I'd hit the brake pedal & it would literally make a "fart" sound. Kinda like when you have a whoopee cushion & give it a quick squeeze, that's what they sounded like. So here I go; come to a stop sign, touch the brakes, hear a fart, & then romp on it to hear the exhaust. Mind you: I'm only going about 30-35MPH to get to the fuel station.

I'm @ the last red light before the station & an older Integra with EVERYTHING you could "soup up" a car from AutoZone is glued to this thing. It was multi-colored, had a fart can, & 3 rims that matched. He was rocking the car with the clutch back & forth @ the red light & I knew as soon as the light turned green, he was gonna "launch", cut me off, & romp on it so everyone & their grandparents could here his annoying exhaust for miles............not today, buddy.

The light turns green & we stomped on the fuel @ the same exact time, unbelievably, the IDI was ahead by inches. We both probably get up to about 50-55MPH with the green IDI a hair ahead. Suddenly, a car comes from an intersection from my side & cuts me off, I touch the brakes(*fart*) & the Integra passes me. I jump into the Integra's lane, pass the car that cut me off, jump back in my lane & start inching back to the Integra(by the way, I missed the gas station by about 1/4 of a mile already). I start passing the Integra again & before I knew it I was a car length ahead of him; & I know now exactly why:

He had seen a cop a little ways ahead of us & he was slowing down. The cop was sitting @ the next 3-way intersection on my side & about 20 feet away from him in the road was a small pothole. Luckily(@ the time) the cop was looking or reading something in his lap & wasn't paying any attention to traffic(....yet). I let off the throttle to slow down a little bit & notice my speedo- I'm doing about 55 in a 30. So here's where the - I figure I could breeze by him just as long as the light @ the 3-way stays green & I continue to let the truck slow down on it's own; ain't happening. I hit the pothole & the truck makes the most deafening BOOM I've ever heard. The cop looks up & locks right on to me doing somewhere in the low 50s. I look up & the light's red. I step on the brakes, they fart, & now the truck IS NOT STOPPING @ ALL! The cop pulls up & gets on my azz instantly.......it's only a matter of time now. The red/blues come on & I finally got the truck stopped about 1000ft. away from the red light(after the red light BTW). The Integra had stopped like nothing had happened & I knew the kid & his ugly girlfriend in the front seat were both gawking @ my misfortune. Eventually they passed by & both had their faces pressed against the glass & laughing @ me as they drove by. The cop busted me for running a red light, speeding, & having an expired inspection sticker. Surprisingly, I didn't have to go to traffic court, but I did get slapped with a hefty fine & got my ear talked off by officer di%& face.

Whadda day. Justice would've been served against another ricer if I had good suspension, no road rage, & a brake pedal that didn't fart.

Not yet. I think it's just some air in the lines. The "fart" sound has boggled my mind since I got the truck wondering what actually causes the fart.

It wasn't too deep, but enough to rock my world after I ran it over. Maybe about 4" deep. New England is very well known & notorious for our horrible roads. @ my last job when I did a lot of traveling, I was absolutely stunned to find roads can actually be smooth & straight.

Good until the "pulled over" part. I hope I see that Integra again with my PSD. I won't even bother racing him, I just wanna see 'em gag on some chimney.............& smack his fat girlfriend with a large mouth bass.

BTW: when I say this, I mean litterally run down to the Blackstone River, catch a large mouth bass, & crack her upside her squash with the fish.
