    Thumbs up Saleen w/ paper plates

    Sitting at a red light. Next to me is a Saleen w/ paper plates and a guy talking on his head set. He wouldn't look at me so I thought I'd get his attention. Light goes green, I launched very much faster than him ( coz he wasnt paying attention). After 1st I shut down coz whats the point, can't claim I beat someone that wasnt even paying attention.

    Well I got his attention coz he came zooming by at high RPMs waving, bu-bye, over his sholder. I smiled and just let him take off because I don't need another ticket.

    A mile later there is another red light. He is sitting there. I pull up next to him. This time he's ready and so am I. Green light - decent launch from me. The saleens tires are screaming. I easily pull on his car.. He chirps his tires into 2nd. I see his car in my rear view mirror. For about 5-6 seconds neither car is pulling... then slowly the saleen starts edging up. Im going 70-80 something and let off the gas coz I know he will pull up and away from me now... and again im trying to aviod a ticket.. He screams by.. but I dont care, my WRX held up against his saleen.

    He obviously had no experience launching his Saleen.
