Don't sweat the loss. He would have beaten you even if you had a perfect run. Their cars are just simply faster than ours at this point and time.


And racing on a wet street????? That's just asking to get in a wreck dude.

I ran one on the freeway and beat it, 9 out of 10 times (just to make sure I was not dreaming) although he did have 4 people in his car and I was alone.
THEN i raced my buddy in my old srt (the list of mods is HUGE starting with a greddy ebc, AEM CAI, 3" turbo back, underdrive pullies, MSD, I/C chiller, suspension up the ass backword, and a stage 2, and goes on and on and on).
Anyway we raced from a 10mph roll, I jumped about half car strady through to third then he PULLED actually walked, well more like ran away.
From a stop I got about 1.5 cars on him, till about halfway through third, then he walked again, My poor little car just didnt have the umph to keep up. Well what can you do, at least I have my pace car now . . . :)

I saw a redline around here the other day, it was keeping up with a SRT (clearly i could see) on the 101. I tried to follow along in my civic..but they must of been running mad fast...it was interesting to see tho. The part I saw, the redline jumped ahead of a few cars and swerved to the side, while the SRT had more of a straight break (not many cars in its way) but I could see that the redline was gaining, haha not my own story, but just makes me want a redline more!
