Just raced one from a red light 1st gear he had me about 1 car length due to me loosing traction but as soon as i got in 2nd I was gone. The guy was laughing with his buddy before we raced but changed his mind when I pulled away in 2nd. I only took it all the way in 2nd due to traffic ahead I got him by two car lengths.

Maybe he missed a shift? I was racing an old beat up vw golf the other night at a red light, and I missed 2nd gear. The guy heard my engine rev, and he knew that I missed it. The next light he tells me that he knew I messed the shift up, and wants to go again.. then I whooped his ass.. Sorry to steal the thread.. :tongue:

he didn't do nothing wrong, he got a jump on me but as soon as I stopped spinning and got in to 2nd gear I was pulling.

That's impressive. I didn't think we had a chance against a 5.0. I had one race me and I beat it but it was a convertible that had 4 really big guys in it. I thought with that much weight it was trying to haul I had a really good chance.

CougarBoi have you ran your car at the track? I am curious to know what you would run since I will be doing the 3.0 SVT Hybrid swap sometime later this year.

I was at the track but got disqualified due to my rear wheel stud missing.
