Woot, I got to line up against one at a red light yesterday. As we pulled up to the light he asks "Are you pretty heavily modded?" And I said "Yeah, pretty well but you'll still smoke me." So I give a rev, and he stares ahead at the red light waiting for it to turn.
I hit a great launch and pulled a car on the launch, but after that all I saw were tail lights. He pulled a car ahead after 2nd gear, and by the top of third he had 3 cars on me, so I quit at about 80 mph. I thought I'd do a lot worse and pulled next to him after the race.
"great little race" I said and he says "not bad!" I said I would be faster if it wasn't an auto and he said he understood because his was an auto.
I thought the only way you could get those cars was auto. Oh well, it was great fun.
