Default My first cash bet race... to a stranger.

...im a bit nervous. We bet a measly $20.

Its a 1978 Chevy El Camino, From what I recall, I raced him before on the freeway, and easily pulled away. I dont know yet whats under the hood, but I met him today at Summit Racing, he is an employee there.

We are going to agree to a place to meet, and do this.

From what I can tell from the outside, and sound, I bet its the stock V8, by the loud magnaflow exhaust... Its got that slow RPM sound of the stock 305, so I like to think im pretty safe.

Yes, I will get video.

Im just nervous, I just met him so I know nothing of his ride like I do with all of my friends.


Like I said before. He has raced me before, at freeway speeds. I pulled away easy. He just reconized my car in the summit parking lot.

20 bucks is no biggie. Being a Summit employee he definitely has a decent hookup though. Like nitrous.

They are most of the Miatas on CL in the Denver area below 4K right now.


Although honestly thats a real bargain, considering how rare and collectable they are.

(Edit: No disparaging your car man, its just a jibe at a stupid assed add that gets put up daily on the CL right now.)

A good auto is the way to go for drag racing, though most OE units take a good bit of work compared to something like say a turbo 350.

Damnit, I just got walked on the way home from work by a new Mustang GT. I guess I'm down on power because I've smoked those before.

Humiliating part was the guy drove next to me for another mile pointing and laughing...guess he got a kick out of beating a "ricer". Guy seriously wouldn't let it go...first time I've ever really considered running someone off the road.

I would of....people can be dicks. Tonight there was a harley behind me at a stop light crackin his throttle (Musta seen my license plate: RU-REDY) Light turned green and his headlight just got smaller and smaller. I slowed WAY down in hopes he'd pull up next to me, needless to say he caught up but stayed in my lane about 50 ft back until I got off the next exit....******

You sure that you smoked the new mustang gt? Those have 400+ hp. I dunno if that's out yet though. The last one had 300+ too.

**** the guy for pointing and laughing, he's an assturd and any car guy that doesn't appreciate a miata isn't a car guy. blah

I wouldn't brag too much about level 10 anything. The only thing those retards know about ATs is how to **** them up and charge you for them. IPT does much better import AT trans stuff.

actually they did pretty damn well in my opinion. The valvebody and its launch control feature works great, and the TQ is excellent! Maybe you had a bad experience, but I had a awesome one!

FYI, that ****** still hasnt called me to setup the meet. I think im going to stop by summit and see whats up.
