I raced a 1969 camaro SS today and it was odd. I just got my WRX this week and I learned to drive a stick...this week. So I suck at taking off. Well this guy pulls up to me in his Camaro and revs his engine. I knew I would lose cause i would screw up the start. But I didn't care. It was my first race in the car and I wanted to see how I could do. So the light turned red and I got and poopy start....but I pulled it together and the car screamed. The camaro was a car length ahead of me and when the turbo kicked in I started pulling up on him. We got to 80 and I knew he was mine and so did he so he bailed out of the race. So then we start coming up to another light and I passed him but had to slow down for the next light. Just as I slowed down and was changing gears the light turns greens and he slams it. I was like..wait dude....im not ready yet! So I just let him go. It was awesome. I caught up with him at the next light but there were cars infront of us. I waved at him and he ignored me. I should have got out of my car and punched him in the face.
I need to learn how to launch this thing so i can kick some booty!
P.S. My other car is a 1999 3000gt and I beat an Eclipse in it one time. Everthing else beat me. 160 hp Automatic in a car that looks fast is just looking to be made into a fool. What was mitsubishi thinking making a 3000gt with 160hp!?!?
