First I have to say that it was not a fair race, because I was by myself and he had 4 people in his car (2 of them women).
We both were at the light and he rolled down his window and asked if I wanted to race. Of course I said "sure!". I asked him what he had done he said he had bolt-ons, which for an EVO I think can put out about 350 AWHP. I told him what I had and he kind of rolled his eyes.
Well I held my car at 4k, as I was releasing the clutch I gave it full throttle and all I could smell was clutch... I felt my wheels spin and my clutch slipping (melting) but I immediately pulled 1/2 car on him and was pulling a bit. Just as I was shifting to 3rd a car pulled out in front of him and he let off. I was about 1/2 - 3/4 carlengths ahead at that time. I think if I didn't roast my clutch I would have done better. The dude seemed really cool and he had a sweet looking black EVO.
I know it wasn't fair but I thought I post for the hell of it. Might as well since my clutch probably looks like a Krispy Kreme donut... If he was by himself I'm not sure what the outcome would be.
