I tried to race someone once.
It was the first time I had raced someone, up until this point I practiced my shifting in open abandoned parking lots. I wasn't great at it since I had only had an automatic before this.
We were lined up ready to go, I had laid down pink slips since I didn't have the cash. The 1/4 mile lasted what seemed like an eternity and I used all the NOS I had and some how he managed to beat me by a hair, but I was all smiles anyway because I almost had him, when no one else had come close before.
He wasnt to happy that I had blown the gaskets on the car that was now his, but I didnt care because I ALMOST HAD HIM!
I lost the car but I EARNED HIS RESPECT and that's what mattered more!
after that I was pretty much his indentured servant, so I dont race anymore......
