Finally got to race one, we did one race from a stop and a couple from a roll. The first race from a stop, i launced at about 4k and completely tore him a new one. I slowed down, and waited again. We did another run from 20mph to about 85mph. In second gear, i got about a half car on him, and when i shifted into third, i gained a car and before hitting fourth, i had a good 2 cars in front of it and pulling nicely. We did it a couple of other races like this, but i started to pull this guy every time.
Fun race, i guess the guy was stock... and most likely automatic.
