Alright me and part of my crew went out for a few brawls. Our first race started from a stop, DX on the left, EX in the middle and LX on the right. We started on my count to 3 but what kind of sucked was that we started facing up which meant traction launching our rides resulted in nothing but inevitable tire spin. LX gets the jump on me (EX) and then off goes the DX. 1st gears caught and the LX has me at 1/2 a car length from 2nd to 3rd gear. By this time, the DX was clearly in my rear view because he missed 3rd. But when I enter 4th, the game changes. My car pulls on the LX in the top end resulting in putting about 1/2 a car length on him! We topped out at around 105MPH and the race was over.
Second race we decide to do this from about a 50MPH roll on the freeway. This didn't go out too well considering we weren't all lined up. From left to right it was DX, LX, and EX. We go on the LX's honks and I get the jump and pretty much it looked as if 1. EX 2. DX and 3 LX.
Third race was better but worse because the DX didn't hear my horn. I got the jump again on my own 3 honks and when I did I didn't know if they heard it or not so I went up at 1/2 throttle. (Yeah, I didn't tell you guys that afterwards... ) I had about 3/4s of a car length ahead of them and when I heard them get on it simulatenously I get BACK on it. My friend in the LX ineviably pulls up next to me, but in the midst of 4th gear I was the winner in the end. I could not see where the DX was because the LX was in the way but it looked like he kept up this time.
Mods worth mentioning:
LX: Intake/Rota Group N
All in all... we gotta do it again.

yeah, my start sucked... i spun tires but somehow i still got the best start out of all 3. then after 4th gear i see him pass me by. oh well, we are gonna try it again soon.
and for the highway races we had... lol i didnt even consider those races. we messed up so many times.
that sounds like a fun night...i would like to see how all three match up. Man my car is nicely slow though....i did zero to sizty tonite with a friend....the timing was a bit off...but with perfect shifting and a decent start i only pulled off an 11....its really sad....maybe it was bad timing but i though it would be faster. Only notable mods are intake and over axle...hmm pullies are on the way.
the rims i have are 17's...but they are heavy...and im not sure if i was launching correctly...i got a bit of lag in first gear. But into second was fine..and i was only in third for about 2 seconds before i shut down. I also have a 12 inch sub in my trunk which probably doesnt help but i though i wouldbe able to pull off atleast a 10 or 9. Something must have been wrong...if not thats kinda depressing
