I was finally after to catch a race this afternoon in broad daylight. I had just made a left turn onto a major street when a silver car speeds up to my side and lets off a loud "psssssh". I look over and its a clean looking vw with body kit, rims, and exhaust. He speeds up a little and I follow, low and behold we catch a fresh red light and both get on the brakes hard. I asked him if he wanted to go and he agreed. To be honest I was really intimidated and assumed that this was the usual chipped/exhaust vw at the least. I was so nervous I don't even remember if it was a golf, gti, or even a jetta. I asked what turbo he had, he says "no turbo", something about a wastegate mod? Perhaps it was a gti vr6. So we are at the redlight revving at a full intersection(bad idea). I take off hard and get about two carlenghts on him. Up to 70 when I let off he had almost reached my bumper.
We stop at the next light and both give the thumbs up. He was a real cool guy and friendly about the whole thing. I'm sure if he didn't have his passenger, the result may have been different. According to him, his car barely had any power mods
