Raced a VR6 Jetta Tonight

so a few buddies of mine decided to go down where we always go, to race.

I raced my friends 01 VR6 Jetta---it is bone stock, but it is very quick, ran a best of 15.5 at the track.

We raced just for shits, i had no intensions to beat him.

The first race....

We lined up....and our friend, from the finish line, turns his lights off and gives us 3 high beams, and on the third we go.
I spun a little, he barely spun......I took him off the line....so now im like ok hes gonan fly past me now........Half way down, im still ahead of him, but hes gaining....then 3/4 the way down...he was on my bumper, but then past me, and ended up 2 cars or 1.5 cars aheadof me at the end....which wasnt bad, being i thought i was gonna get smoked.....so i was excited.

So we stopped to talk after at the finish line, and he said he had traction control on....so i was like, agh, u [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]**, so he said lets go again. So we went from the finish line to the starting line this time.....

So the second race....
HE took traction control off, and on the third high beam we took off, i took him off the line but then he just took off after 1st gear.....so i was like, wow, hes gonan really smoke me this time....so im just goin down....and im gaining on him a little bit, then a little bitmore, then even more.....and we finished...and again....i was about 2 cars behind him......it was a good race again

So all in all, i was pretty excited on my cars perfformance.....my check engine light is always on though since i installed the race header, and the air fuel gauge.....so it doesnt run as good.....but even still....i was proud of the focus tonight....if my car was a 5 spd, i would had him....but its ok...i had fun, and we were safe!!!!!
