Dragged off big time tonite

Ok so Im on my way home, and its been a long day, and i need to grin.

I should know better, and I cant condone it, but I was OWNED big time off the lights. In my defence the other car hadnt quite come to a standstill when the lights changed, and i had been stopped for about a minute.

But god-damn. I did all the right things. used manual mode,loaded it up before the ligths changed so i had plenty revs before taking foot off brake and I gave it a good go.
Mate by the time i reached 80 he was about waaaaay in front of me

But..I didnt mind..
in fact I couldnt stop grinning and laughing!

MY car Stock XT 6 auto (sports pack body/susp/wheels kit)
his car BA XR8 ute with many mods (car is well known in the area)
I just wanted to see and hear that ute go hard! (and i guess i wanted to see just HOW much faster it was..heaps!)
Wot an idiot i am.

Re: Dragged off big time tonite

I just flogged a VX SS in the XR8. He was trying so hard to catch me after I got the jump at the lights but I just kept pulling away. Now if only those chumps in the VY's would run me.

Fun was had, then well done mate!

At least you're not like the loons around here, that try and take you on while they sit on the clear side of the road and you sit behind a truck.

All I could think was.. you freakin' clown, where the hell am I gonna go to give you a run?? *stays in 2nd gear and just waves at the dufus'*.

I had to laugh at the guy in an old commy, who tried to take me on a few months ago, not realising I was in the right hand turn lane, and he was going straight ahead.
Never mind the fact we were also a fair few cars back from the lights.
My lane went first and once I started to move he floored it straight into the back of the Lexus in front of him.

Seeing the look on his face in my rear view mirror.... priceless
