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