Last week when it was below zero in MN, I raced a V-8 firebird and beat it by about 1 to 2 car length to 60. Luckly i stopped their otherwise he would have spanked me. I didn't even really launch, only a 3k launch to give him a little lead to make sure he was racing.
I didn't find out till later it was a V8 when I asked someone how you can tell the difference between the 6's and 8's, i had assumed at the time it was a 6 cause the dual exhaust looked kinda cheasy. If i would have known it was a 8 i would have launched and got a jump off the line.
