Well, I guess that my car is getting quite the rep here in Sac.
Tonight at the Illegals, there was a Dyno tuned 400HP+100 shot of NO2 auto Twin Turbo Supra that was mopping up everyone...about 100 or so cars in attendance.
This fool calls me out. Once again...I am sweating bullets...thinking that I am going to get my ass smacked.
We lined up. I knew that I was going to get the jump off of the line. This guy had been pulling off his victories by SCREAMING by his competetion about 1/2 way down the track as he purged his NO2. This Supra was a freaking highway machine. Big ass FMIC...Bomex body kit...TE37's...tons of money into this monster.
Well...I must have gotten a 4 car jump on him off the line...went through 3rd gear and into 4th and I had a 2+ car lead on him when I shut her down.
I was happy...then I realized that Sactown is a bunch of ****ing crybabies...pardon my French. This guy was crying...saying that I shut down too early. "What the Hell?" was what I was thinking.
I ran him again...it must have been about a half mile the second time. He was pouring it on and gaining fast...but damn...I thought that we were racing 1/4 mile...not the full monty...top it out ****!!? I shut down at the top of 4th gear...which is about 130MPH or so. I know that my wrx is not a highway machine...I could have told anybody that.
Anyways...when we shut down...I still commanded about a 1 car lead on him. Had I shifted to 5th...he would have stung me like a cracked out yellow jacket. This would have been no suprise to me.
I still can't see why anybody would dump so much cash into an auto. This Supra would be a freaking Wan Gan Sen Monster in Japan...a REAL HIGHWAY MONSTER. Tons of top end.
Anyways...he gave me a thumbs up and conceded defeat.
Another notch in the e-brake lever for my mighty WRX.
