ok.... so we decide we're gonna race after i showed him that my car's completely stock, and i didn't even check out his ride. after we raced he told me he has a CAI and straight pipes.... no cat. now keep in mind my EGT is BONE STOCK. i put my resonator back on my intake and everything!!!! well, we launched from about a 20mph roll..... so i took him at first, then i missed the shift from 1st-2nd..... took me about 2-3 seconds to recover.... but then i CAUGHT UP TO HIM, AND KEPT UP WITH HIM THE REST OF THE TIME.... THEN SLAMMED ON MY NEW CERAMIC BRAKES WHEN MY RADAR DETECTOR WENT OFF. but, yeah..... so, he said we'll race again some other time because now he knows what i look like (he's a friend of my cousin's that lives around here... my cousin lives a block away from me) he though i had a riced out escort or something, he's all lookin for a turbo and crap.... i'm like "dude..... bone stock... 127 hp at the crank....."

it was beautiful, let me tell you. if i had been next to him, and pulled when he did, and HADN'T missed the shift, i woulda been fine, and he woulda been checkin out my tails. but i'll get him next time!! (btw, i know you're wondering, he did have an auto)

auto... im sure he would be lucky to run a mid 16 MAYBE low 16. also what elevation are you... if you sea level i could see you both being high 15s (POSSIBLY) there have been alot of good drivers with strong motors runnin low 16s in egts on here, but if you guys are at any elevation i must say your both probably running mid low 16 at best.

also an fyi dont rely on your radar detector to save you... alot of police are using laser now anyway and the only way a laser detector will work is if the laser is on you... too late by then. and on the off chance he is using radar alot of them keep them off till they can get you... also too late. basically the only thing those are good for are intersection cameras and trailer/van photo radar.

well, there's really nowhere for the cops to hide around here anyways.... so it really doesn't matter..... and pretty much, mine goes off anytime there's a cop anyways. plus most cities around here are probably too poor to have laser. i mean, hell..... they don't even have enough cops in alot of these cities, so they have all the surrounding cities patrolling each other.

plus when i go up to my cottage, the cops around there would be scratchin their heads at the word laser
