I raced my friends 2002 transam...actually its just a girl i know, sometimes talk to her, good gal. Anyways, she is driving her friends 2002 transam, and she says its stock. I had high hopes that i would keep up with her well since not too long ago i raced an SS and kept up ahead of it till 90+. Anyways, we line up, take off. I jump her by a car and a half pretty ez. Shift into 2nd, and shes already starting to pull HARD. At 65 mph, she jogged past me. We shut down at about 80 and she was 2 cars ahead already. This transam was auto. Im not sure if it was a factory freak, or if my car is just...that slow. But i was mad. I felt like a little biatch getting my butt kicked by my dad . Was all in fun. But i felt like a helpless redheaded steph child. Oh well, all i got is the uppipe and downpipe, maybe ill do better after the MBC...SHRUG. Im trying to find another Transam to race, im hoping that thing was slightly modded or factory freak, but im really afraid it might be stock. In which case, i have ALOT of catching up to do. There is just no way that i can keep up with one of those things after 60, their power in the top end is amazing to say the least, damn that big V8 on a RWD car, tear .
Cool thing is, later that night i raced a brand new GTI (stock). I played with that thing. First race, i let him get the jump, wanted to be fair, then i flored it once he got 2 cars ahead, and i came flying by him, and by 95 i had 4 cars on him. Then we raced again, and i launched on him, poor guy didnt have a chance, i felt bad. I think he felt the same way i did when i raced that Transam. Anyways, the 2nd race i had about 7-10 cars on him by 100, it wasnt that fun . I just hope he never tries to race a Transam or similar LS1, he will probably try to commit suicide, haha.
