Default My first "kill" against an actually decent car

I got my friend to race me with his 07 gti with the DSG trans. We were neck and neck in 2ed gear, and I pulled 1/2 car length in 3rd. And this is with my stock slipping clutch! It feels so good to acually have a somewhat quick car now haha.

I was runnin about 10 psi.

Stock, they're definitely not too fast. I destroyed one on the highway with my TT. Chipped...that'd be a different story probably.

Get that bitch up to 13-14psi and see what's up. The first time you walk away from an STi is a special moment.

i hate you guys, i never get any encounters with anything worthwhile, although myself and my two friends with a mazdaspeed6 and an 06 clk350 agree my car feels faster than both. the clk is faster than the ms6.

The only guy who's tried to get me to race him of late was a new style Mustang GT that had

In small letters on the quarter panel. Glad I caught that before he caught me. Shouldn't that be entrapment anyway?

i've heard a similar from around my area but i didn't really believe the guy. I would think there would have to be some legality issue with an officer taunting someone to race.

I wish my miata could keep up with anything. People who say these are fast stock are in some strange foreign world (unless referring to fast in turns). Today a new Toyota SUV beat me off of a light when the driver looked over at me afterwards I was falling over laughing at what had just happened. Boost is needed.

Police officers enticing you to street race is the definition of entrapment.

uh isn't entrapment when you're more or less forced (or willing) to break the law and then punished?

Nobody is forcing you to race the guy, and if you do he would have the right to ticket you anyways.

Not saying I haven't done it in my day, but street racing is gay. I always hope a cop is around when someone tries revving at me in my WRX, unfortunately there is never one around. No one ever tries to goad me into a stoplight race in my Miata oddly enough even with the chuffing of the wastegate, whine of the turbo, and the 2.5" exhaust.

You would hate this... last time I was up in your area I was playing with a cobra on RT 100 and a Ford GT500 decided to stomp me.

There is a cop around fairfax who literally eggs people into racing him. He was riding the bumper of my friends M3 and when my friend finally gunned it to get him off his ***.. he put on his lights and pulled him.
