Had a couple fun races last night

I never street race anymore, but last night some of my friends asked me to join them at their spot for a couple races. It's at this industrial park, and the street they race on is maybe a 1/8 mile. So I raced a friend of mine with a civic si with all kinds of mods, and at the end, he beat me twice, and I beat him twice. Then I ended up racing my buddy who has a golf GTI 1.8t. I beat him really bad, but it's because, suprisingly enough, he isnt too good at driving. I say that cause his car is auto, with the tiptronic stuff, and he didnt know how to launch an auto, and somehow messed up shifting the tiptronic.
So anyway, I just thought I'd post that up.

My bro raced a Civic in his GTP the other day. The guy in the Civic caught us at a light. It goes green, my bro takes off normal, and the Civic hammers it (could tell by the weed whacker next to him). My bro floors it, breaking the tires loose while going 15. Next light my bro was ready. Guns it in 1st (squealing the tires till 2nd) and puts a couple of lengths on him. Shuts it down at 50 or so.

They had to stop at the next light when I tell my bro to roll down his window (guy in Civic was doing the roll down the window gesture). The guy in the Civic says "4 against 8 isn't fair" We both broke out laughing, and replied "It's only a 6". "Same crap" he replies! We laughed about that the rest of the ride home.

My bro has a smaller pulley (2 sizes smaller), stage 1 cam, exhaust, and cone filter as mods. It's a pretty sick car on a straight line (probably knocking on the 300 hp door), but it's begging for mods when it comes to handling and stopping!
