Haha, smoked some gangster wanna be in a Regal the other day. It must have been an automatic cause it was slow as dog shit. So I was goin home today, and wanna be thug keeps haulin ass (in his mind) from every light. Well we come up to a light, and I need to get in his lane. Hmmm, take off normally and tuck in behind, or show him what we do. Well here comes the green. Get up to about 2.5k, quickly let the clutch out. I get a short chirp from the tires and i'm off. Let me tell you guys, it was UGLY. This was the kind of race that only takes one gear to decide. Get to the top of first, shift and look in the rearview. Our guy had to be at least 4 cars back. Turned on the blinker and got in his lane. After I made the turn, gangster guy decides its not over till he says it is (keep in mind we had to come to a stop to turn). So he guns it and gets in front of me (didn't care at this point and resumed my 2k rpm granny shifts) and he starts swerving across al four lanes so I couldn't get in front of the all mighty regal. Back and forth he went, until he saw I was getting on the freeway and he went back to driving like a normal person.

Ok, i believe you beat them, just not the same gen as the ones im talknig about. They only have 170 hp, but 225 lb ft, and at a low 3200 rpm. Tromp on it and burn for a good few seconds in a gear that shifts out at 75 km/h. In an automatic.

As slow as 15.7 is, they are sick ass sleepers for ricers.

Yea i know the feeling. I used to drive a Ford LTD. 135 hp, 180 lb/ft (and the torque was redicoulously low, like 2100 rpm). It looked the like a grandpa car, but it laid the smack down on a friend of mine with a riced out corolla and I had my 200lb friend in the car with me too. I can only imagine what it felt getting beat by a car 12 years older than what he drove. Never talked smack again. Good times when that thing downshifted to second in the rain and span the tires. good times.
