This past Saturday night I was out driving around in my home town and this kid that I've only met a few times pulls me over and tells that one of his friends is on his way here from another town, strickly to come and race me. Well, the kid shows up and I see that it's an '02 or 03' Mustang with a full body kit and a different spoiler(the car did actually look pretty good). We both pull over in a parking lot and when he looks over at me, he kinda gives me that cocky smile that he just knows he's gonna blow my doors off, I'm sure ya'll have gotten that look before. He gets out of his car and puts his ear up to the front end and says "My supercharger is louder than yours". When he said that, I thought to myself, well I may not win this one, of course, I was assuming it was a V-8 with a supercharger. Anyway, we get out to our racing spot which is about 150 feet longer than a 1/4 mile and there are three other cars out there full of this guys friends. More or less, this guys car is "the shit" in his town. We take off and I completly suck at launching still so he jumps about 2 1/2 lengths on me. I go all the way through 2nd gear and close the gap by only a car length. Now is where it got interesting because I figured that he would have a better top end than me because of the larger motor. Not the case. By the time I'm shifting into fourth, my front end is at about the back of his door. In the end, I beat him by about 2 feet(there's a sign we race to) and needless to say, he wasn't very happy. He spent God knows how much money on the supercharger, which was pushing about 8 psi, exhaust, intake and whatever else he had done to it. I can't say I'd be excited about getting beat by a stock Saturn! By the way, this was my first actual race.
