mini s

I raced my friends mini s a while back. He had never raced before so I showed him how to do it and let him get in about 8 runs against me. I beat him bad of the line and thru the 1/8. He started coming on strong in the end and almost caught me. he only beat me once out of the 8. I think he could have beat me with a few more nights at the strip to practice but I held my own. It was fun though. I got to drive his once and they have no power at launch. I think his best time was a 16.3.
