Post My new RS vs. Newish Mustang, sadly...

I won hahaha

Well what is sad is that the mustand died haha

I just thought that this incident was so funny that I just had to post it (If you guys don't like hearing things like this then I won't post again, but since I just got the car I'm very excited and happy about this! )

Well what happened was that I got my car and I just planned to drive over to my friend's place in Port Coquitlam for some MahJong and to help break in the car.

Anyways, I was going along and then this mustang came beside me wanting to race me. I though, nah, I don't want to hurt my car yet, and then we got to a red light. The mustang kept revving up during the light so I though why not? Well I did, and I was just shifting before the car reached 3000rpm and before I got to 3rd gear the mustang was lost behind me. Puzzled I did a U-Turn and saw that the mustang had died and the guys driving it was pushing the car to the side of the road!!!

Anyways, was a funny sight and I didn't damage my car at all! (I hope )

Darn. Wanted to lock something too.

But yup, generally here, we frown upon street racing. It happens yes, but we like to keep those things away from the spotlight.

Why didn't you just title it as a "Torque racing contest" instead of an alleged street race since you didn't go much passed 3k rpm!
