    My First Kill...

    Well, tonite I finally got my first kill. It wasn't against anything special, or necessarily fast to some of your standards, but a kill is a kill...

    I'm turning out of a neighborhood onto a main road, and a Z24 Cavalier with rims/tires comes flying by me on the right side. I asked my buddy whom I was taking home if we could take the long way so I could smoke this guy, and he said sure...

    Anyways, this guy turns right, so we follow him. He tears it up trying to leave me, but I just go normally chasing after him. He hits his brakes and I know it's on now...I pull up next to him, running about 4000-4500 in 3rd gear, and we punch it. I pulled on him bad, but I think he gave up pretty quick. I ended up about 4 bus-lengths ahead

    Then the red light comes, horrible thing happened, I got the crappiest launch ever, just bogged it down. I wasn't ready for the light to turn green, but he was, he burned out and let it rip. I hit it once I got going I started to reel him in. But then he hit the brakes for some reason...Man I'd love to go at it again when I get a good launch, then it'd be fun

    He gave me a nice wave as I turned off onto another road...

    Just thought I'd share my first experience

    i don't know how old you are or how long you've been driving(i assume manual) but it's really best to slip the clutch for a launch. your awd just has too much traction and you will bog unless you are smooth and sensuous with the pedals.

    Haha, never thought about the Littleton thing...

    I was in 8th grade when all of that stuff went down around here, but now I'm a freshman in college.

    I'm aware to slip the clutch. I wasn't paying attention to the light, as I was trying to check out the guys ride. Before I even had time to rev up and slip it out (like I've been practicing every now and then) the light turned green and he burned on out...

    Funny thing is I was already reeling him in before I hit 2nd gear...then he had to hit the damn brakes

    Not surprised at all.....this way he can tell all his friends how he beat a WRX from a stop... and he isn't even (technically) lieing!

    yeah, then his friends will probably say "wow he must have been a ****ty driver!"

    and they won't be lying either!!!!


    seriously- if you lack the sense it takes to refrain from street racing, you probably lack the skill it takes to street race safely.

    still can't get over that you're from littleton

    I usually never think about street racing, but since this guy came flying by me and then hit his brakes I figured what the heck, no one was on the road, seeing it was 11:15...

    He can go tell his friends he beat a WRX from a stop to 40 mph

    I don't get why it's THAT funny I'm from Littleton...

    Thanks Eli, obviously the word kill has a couple different meanings, I'm sure he understands that, but for some reason it's funny to relate a little race to a tragic event that killed 13 innocent people...

    I knew a lot of people that were in that school when that happened, so to me it's not really all that funny...

    I'm not angry by any means, I am just surprised someone finds amusement outta that...
