I was driving to work this morning and beside me was a brand new Mitsubishi Lancer OZ Rally Edition. He still had the sticker in the window, so I'm pretty positive he was completely stock. We were playing around with eachother for like a mile... When we were lucky enough to end up at a stoplight together. We both new it was on. He took me off the line by about 1/2 car length... But by the time the race was over I could see his whole car in my rearview mirror! I must have had him by about 2 car lengths! I'm so happy!!!!! My little ATX can hold it's own!

Oooo... I just looked it up and couldn't find the HP, but the 5 Speed is 16.8 in the 1/4 mile... no wonder I crushed him! I thought that these were supposed to be quick! My mistake! I also beat a 1986 grand am once... I'm screaming fast - watch out! :biggrin:
