    Red firebird almost killed me

    So I was on my way home from church. I stopped at the red light, and this red F-body pulled up next to me, he look at me and reved his engine, so I was like ok fine race it is.
    The light turned green and here we go, I didn't want to drop the clutch, I don't want to damage the tranny. He jumped ahead of me about a car length. Then the turbo kicked in, my car started pulling, all the sudden, his F-body drifted in my lane and I had to slam on the brake so I wouldn't run into his car. It looked like he lost control of his car, so I was in dead stop, and he pulled away,,,all the way to the next light. I shut it down right then becuz I doubt his driving ability!
    I live in East Lansing MI, so if anyone who lives around me and ever meet up with this RED F-body ( modded on the pipe) , don't race him, HE CAN'T DRIVE, he might just side swipe u with his car.
    my car is slow,,,,,, very slow.

    What turbo are you running? Seems to me you weren't slipping at a high enough rpm to launch...

    stock turbo!
    I didn't slip nor drop the clutch, I was driving like normal! I kept up with the other F-body TA before without my downpipe and chip. I was pretty confidence I could beat this one becuz it was only the V-8 fomula, but he lost control and he won by default!
