I don't think I really raced I am kinda paranoid about it with cops and all but the guy in the GTI lives close by me and he was really cool. Those cars look great too love the wheels and that hatchback bodystyle. He said he had just bought it and I could tell he was really excited and wanted to run it he also complimented me on my car . Anyway from the light I slowly let off and started forward and got the jump on him I don't think he was ready but I jumped up a got ways and shot off like a rocket I did hear him chirp the tires on the shift so it sounds like he was really runnning it. I slowed down my turn comes up really quick and gave a wave first guy to actually give me alittle respect and not be all crappy about it. Has anyone raced one from a good roll or even stop where you both were going at it from the begining?
