    yikes... new VW?

    so i'm cruising at night with a friend and i stop at a light next to a silver VW. looked like a golf to me so i looked at the driver and he revved. being a retarded teen that i am, i took him on. light goes green and i launch at 5.5k rpm (dropped the clutch ) tires squeal a little and catch. we are dead even for about a second, then he took off. i attempt to shift into second but i got this grinding sound from the tranny (synchros, i assume? and yes, i am sure i had the clutch pushed all the way in also, could it have soemthing to do with me having a short shifter?) and he proceeded to waste me. turned out it was this gt32 or something like that.. awd nice v6 but kinda embarassing really... hoped i could take a VW


    p.s.
    before making fun of me for my shifting, please understand that this is my second week of driving stick. ever.

    At no point in your rambling, insane race story did you come close to anything even resembling an interesting story. Everyone in the forum is dumber for reading that...you are awarded no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    And your transmission hates you for it

    VW Golf R32 maybe? A formidable car, especially when you don't know how to drive yet.

    Yes, can't confirm the 0-60, but there is no way this car should beat a wrx...

    I understand where he is comming from... The first day I got my WRX, I was out trying to take out every car in sight.... Even though I had driven stick for 2 days.

    I got owned by pretty much everything in sight though, since I couldn not roll off the line without bogging, and had to make a conscious effort to concentrate on giving gas and engaging the clutch at the same time..

    Taking off while on an incline was an absolute nightmare!! I would even beat a light on top of a hill, just so that I did not have to embarass myself when it went green again!
