Well I left school Tuesday. Pulled up behind a older Camaro SS maybe 1969? Anyways sounded loud. But we turned the corner both punched it, and I walked away. The SS hunh low and went slow about a mile back the rest of the way - i think he was ashamed. That was that. Then I see a friend in his 03 Mustang GT with exhaust - fooled around with him for a little, but we couldnt find an open stretch. About 20 min later on the otherside of town. Im waiting at the left hand turn signal to make a left into my development, and low and behold a silver 996 hardtop pulls up in the far right lane - a buick pulls in between us. I say **** becaquse im in the LH turn lane - i pray our signals turn green simultaneously, and they do! I somewhat quickly launch 1st (but not in a race way, smoothly, no tire spin, just to get in front and cut off the buick) The guy in the porsche gunned it off the line. I grinned :cool2: slammed into 2nd and we were going. By the time we hit about 75 I was about a length and a half ahead of him ( i considered the race to be from a rolling start of about 20mph is when I actually "hit it" and i was in second when I did "hit it" at 20mph so I didnt get to take full advantage of 1st) We both quickly shutdown seeing a cop with his lights on up ahead helping a broken down cars passenger. Both of our brakes lit up and I heard his squeal real bad (that carbon build up SUCKS!). Today, I pull out of my development right next to the same guy (or so I think - silver 996 hardtop - there probably arent that many of these in little podunk gainesville) and we do some sprited driving cutting in and out of the lanes. From a higher roll start I think I coulda beat him by more than I did beacsue when we were just cutting it around today. A couple times he would floor it and I would be behind him and I would start to get right up on him real fast ( so I know the V is faster from rolls - probably the TORQUE advantage). I would however like to race this guy from a dig, I think it would be realy close - with him having a slight advantage off the line, and me having a slight tq and top end advantage. Anyways, sorry for the long post, but Im ecstatic - a porsche is one car ive been dying to race and beat. and i did. plus my dad's got a porsche, now i have some bragging to do :bighead: . Thanks post your comments.
