This will be brief because it is just against a lowsy Z28. But it was my first kill none-the-less with my good old temp-tags still on.
The Z28 was first in line at the stop light with me directly behind him. On green I noticed his tires loosing traction in first gear so I realized what he was doing. So off I went. I really had no intention on racing. Somewhere in 3rd gear I was 1/2 car length a head of him in the opposite lane -- no problem. To my surprise we kept this formation until sometime over 120 when I finally walked him (waving goodbye in the process).
My shifts were just aweful -- no desire to powershift or anything. I have only had the car for about a month and have been very easy on it until well after my first oil change at 1000 miles.
