yeh so we "randomly met up" on a long straight road at about 2 am in the philly industrial district along with a bunch of other "car entusiasts"
i proceed to pull up to the line... this guys heats his tires up... and everyone else there proceeds to scream " MAN ARE YOU NUTS??!?!"
he gives me about a 1.5 carlength.. headstart
the signal is given and i get the best launch of my entire life
from about 6000.
im ahead through about the last quarter of 2nd at which point i look right and see his front end drop to the ground as he screams by me like i was standing still
i later found out that this guy runs mid 10's on pump and low 9's on race gas... he has bolt on frame attachments for his wheelie bar ... estimated 1050 hp...
maybe the 30 in wide slicks in back and the skinnies on the front should have given him away.... oh well.. another day another lesson
im proud to have ever been ahead of him
