a friend and i decided to go to the drag strip to see who's car is faster. he has a C55 and i have an 06 V with a corsa. i didn't beat him, but i wasn't about to try and really launch the car either. i think i did pretty well for running on RSA runflats. he ended up running a 13.02 as his best. i think if i didn't have so much hop on my shifts i would have been there. while he did have the fastest time the first couple of times i tree'd him. we had one race where i ran him down and beat him by a bumper...

if i could drop the 60' another tenth and fixed the traction problem during shift, i would be in the 12's
