So my boss got a 2001 Camaro Z28 a few weeks ago and since then we've had a few conversations, mostly about how bad i'd beat him. It was somewhat just joking with him, but behind it all it was the truth. We always had said that we should race someday, and it ended up being today. So finally today we both ended up leaving work at the same time and he happened to be right in front of me leaving the parking lot and out onto the main street. We go for about 2 miles until it opens up into 2 lanes if you turn right, which we both did. I went out of my way just to race him, we knew it was on the moment we saw each other back in the parking lot going to our cars. So anyways we lined up doing 60mph and I had it in 3rd gear, around 4400 rpms. I rolled on it first, and he reacted to the sound of my turbo spooling by flooring his camaro. He didnt even pull for that 1 second that he had an advantage, it was over before it started. Once my turbo was fully spooled I walked away from him at about a walking pace. All I could hear for the first few seconds was his screaming LS1 as it faded into the background. By the end of 3rd(around 95mph) I shifted into 4th with about 2 carlengths inbetween us. I pulled in 4th for a second and really put some distance on him, then I let off around 100 or so, no need to go any faster. I couldnt tell if he had quit or if I was just beating him that bad. Now tomorrow I get to rub it in infront of everybody else we work with...it will be fun. He knew I was going to beat him he just didnt know how bad. It is all good fun between him and I, dont think im an A-Hole or anything.
