The other day myself and another Trooper Had set up a stationary "road block" in a rather seedy section of town, known for having stolen cars and narcotics activities. By road black I mean we sit on the side of a city street and wave over cars with expired inspection stickers, fake inspection stickers, equipment violations, etc. It often leads to a good arrest on 94-C, warrants, etc. Anyways after only about 5 minutes of waiting we notice a red ricer approaching the intersecting street about 20 yards from our setup. The driver looks over with wide eyes and PEELS OUT the opposite direction. Of course, now the chase is on. I have to admit the ricer did accelerate quickly, about 110 on a city street. Myself and the other Trooper caught up to him quickly (after about 1/2 mile). When the ricer tried to make a quick right he down-shifted to bleed off some speed. There was a loud "bang" and the ricer glided to a serene stop, followed quickly by a violent yank out of the car by the other Trooper and myself at the gunpoint. It seems he had blown his motor. Needless to say the clown was revoked, vehicle had attached plates etc. A check of the motor revealed it to be a VTAC engine, certainly not normal in Hondas. Also a large tank of nitrious oxide was found in the trunk area. The clown claimed that the tank was empty, but if it had been full he would have "blown us away". Rightttt...not if he was a good mechanic as he was a driver! The motor also proved to stolen!
