Got beaten by AUI Fairmont auto!!!

Hey. I got beaten from traffic lights by an AUI auto Fairmont!!!! See, it was my Dad at the lights, next to me. Didnt realise he was gonna make a thing out of it and he revved the shit out of it and took off - took me a second to realise what he was up to... so I planted the foot and took off after him.... and I couldn't catch the bugger! I know I was second behind but I honestly thought I would catch him - but I didn't!!!!

What's with THAT people???

AU's are not really that slow is whats up. Once he got it moving and ahead you, you were gone. If it was an equal launch you would have had him.

Re: Got beaten by AUI Fairmont auto!!!

Hmmmm.... My Dad is a highly naughty but adorable individual who is 62 tomorrow. He used to race so he does know what he is doing - and the sneaky bugger caught me napping - and don't ya think he loves this! He is getting his car run on a dyno this week so he can brag about it some more!!!!

I can see what you are saying about the start though and I get that. However, I would have thought that I would have roped him in - had foot flat to the floor and was not gaining, after the first change was done, etc.... he wasn't gaining on me but I couldn't catch him! He has a 2 inch exhaust on the thing but I wouldnt have thought it would make that much difference - even he was surprised coz we drive each other's cars all the time!

I am taking it back to my guys to run another dyno just in case coz they were shocked too.

In any case, there WILL be a rematch sometime very soon, I can assure ya - this is not gonna go away. But at least I didn't lose to a Commie, a ricer or some Magna or Camry! But I hate losing. I think I shall defintely sell this one and get the T - that'll shut him up! He he. I hate losing.

I know the AU is fast enough, have driven enough of them. But this hurts!!!

No, if I was driving a T, I would have killed myself. Just the BA NA XR6 as in sig, with chip.

Whatever it takes! Yeah, the bulge itself would put him off I reckon, without even starting it. Problem is that the bugger is probably getting a GT-P sometime soon this year.... I reckon the F6 with some mods is the car for me..... But I do love the 8s tho!
