I know street racing is bad, but just this once..

Yes Yes, I know someone could have been killed. This is why I don't street race except for this one time.

So, I am getting of I-43 and pull up to a stop light. I am in the inside lane to turn left and there is this late 80's to early 90's Corrola I think in the outside turning lane. He revs his engine so I looked over and noticed the guy probably goes to my school, and he had 3 or 4 people in his car. So I put my left foot on the brake and rev my car to about 1200 rpm, just in case he is not looking to race. I just kept looking for that green light to go. When it does, we both slowly make the left turn (Special sway bar helped immensely) and I push the throttle about half way down. Our cars were about even and I notice his car pulling ahead. I floored it and I must have been moving fast enough that it stayed in 2nd gear instead of going to 1st. I look over and my car is slowly pulling ahead of his. I noticed that his car shifted very abruptly like it was a standard transmission. About 1000 feet away from where we started was a green stop light and after that the 2 lanes merged into one. As we cross the stop light, my car was about a foot ahead and he slows way down since his lane was ending. I looked down and I was going 80-85 mph. As a nice victory dance, I gently pushed the brake pedal to slow down to about 65 mph, and I threw the gear selector into L so I could slow down fast without turning my brake lights just to scare the crap out of him. on. The ol' 2.7 really earned her V6 Magnum badges today lol

It's handy to know your cars speeds it can downshift at. Especially for 2.7's.

I ran a Sunfire GT in my LHS. I was going too fast (120km/hr) for a kickdown to 2nd so the roll on starts in 3rd. It struggles against the tall gear and I'm barely taking the little 4 banger on. Just starting to pull a bit and the damn early upshift into 4rth. Still took the Sunfire but I did not represent the 3.5 very well.

I know it was a stupid 20 year old Corolla with 4 people in the car lol. Its just nice to know that there are always slower cars out there than you.

We weren't on the expressway, we were getting off lol.

at least you didn't get flamed for posting a 2.7 kill, I had Gorm give me negative rep when I first joined for killing a SHO

thats a stupid statement to make. Racing on the highway is more dangerous if anything, as soon as someone shifts into your lane that's a disaster waiting to happen. I guess using your terms we could say that drive-by shootings aren't bad ass long as we do it in southern Chicago.
