my friend and I were driving around late tonight looking for the local street races. Once we got to the road where they usually occur we saw that it was empty and then realized it was tuesday night. Anyway...he drives a jaguar s-type 4.0. If any of you have heard of this car you know it pulls pretty well. While sitting there looking at an empty 1/4 mile track he decides to go at it. I'm thinking, "282 horses of naturally aspirated v-8 power... im gonna get owned" but not being one to turn down a challenge, i accept. I let him call out the start as I let the engine rev up to 4k. He says go and i slide out the clutch gaining about half a car length. As I shift into second he starts gaining it back, but then the almighty turbo kicks in and i gain about a car length and a half. After a quick shift into third i gain another car length and its all history from there.
After tonight i have gained a lot of respect for this car, as i've driven that jag and know it packs a punch. I lost some confidence after the last street racing episode (getting owned by a heavily modded camero SS). But after some heavy modding ill be asking that guy for a rematch. So if anyone takes on an s-type, know you can take it, cuz my car is just about stock and he got killed.
