Was behind a Ford F-150 truck, with altezza-type taillights and aftermarket muffler. There was a VW Beetle in front of the truck driving 15 mph, I guess looking for parking. At first I didn't see the beetle so I wondered why the truck was going so slow. As I steered the car left and right to see if anyone was in front of him, the beetle makes a left turn, and the truck guns it. I was in 1st gear with clutch depressed. By the time I had 1st engaged (which was about 1-1.5 sec after the truck gunned it) the truck already had a 3 car length on me. I shifted from 1st-2nd at 7k rpms and neither of us gained any ground. He didn't pull on me, I didn't pull on him. This race went for only 2 blocks before I had to make a turn. I was shocked that I didn't pull on him, but either way he got the jump on me and won. No excuses. Mad props to the truck yo!
Btw, my car is bone stock but I have my fat arse and subwoofer which adds about 220 lbs combined
