In honor of hitting 500 miles on my Goat (and completing the dreadded "Stage 1" of the break-in process), I decided to challenge my brother's 2002 Formula to a road race. We lined up, revved up, and floored it (both cars are A4s). I instantly lost all traction as my rear wheels squealed like hell and the rear end began to slide out to the right. After about 3 seconds of this, I finally caught traction and flew out in front of him. His car is modded with a Whisper Lid, K&N filter, and a Corsa exhaust system. Mine's totally stock. I ended up winning, by 2 car lengths, but he claims he had to let off the gas or he would have had no traction at all on his launch. I guess more trials are needed to see who's car is really the faster one, and that's just fine with me! :D

yeah, but it wasnt at a track, so I figured I'd post it here. Incidently, I went back to the race site and found the tire streaks left behind. DAMN! The GTO left a 50 foot DARK black pair of streaks, and the Forumula left about 80 foot streaks (he has older tires). Now THAT'S POWER!

thanks DOC. I don't really consider it a KILL yet becasue we did some runs at speed and he was able to pull on me at times. Next time, I want to hook up early and put him down once and for all!
