Unhappy My RS is too slow...

I got smoked by a lady with her two kids today. It was as if I was parked. Of course it was an M3 covertible and I expected to get smoked. I just didn't think it would be that bad. I better start saving for that stage II turbo.

I got smoked by a guy in a mid eighties Mercedes 430 sedan. I think it was modded thought becuase the engine was a very throaty and he had big beefy tires on it.

what is the deal w/ women (or men) racing w/ kids in the car? some lady a few weeks ago raced me at a light. i started off gently so the overtaking could be more dramatic (POS Chevy Cavalier) and as the back window was even with my drivers window i saw an infant in the back seat! i quickly got off the gas so she would slow down.

whats the deal with that? its one thing to drive stupid by yourself but with a 4 month old baby? not cool

I think i remember hearing that the kids in the back add HP. Each kid is like 15 hp extra, so nextime a wagon with like 50 kids in the back rolls up next to u,just back off

i also heard that for every gram of sugar a kid gets...that HP goes up another 15...and every pokemon item the kid has adds another 20HP...that could make for some serious power...

Maybe a kid in a Cavalier is like a Trunk Monkey in an Impreza?

Just a thought.

Wow. No wonder I got smoked. It was an M3 with 2 kids. She had more than double my HP.

It really was sad. When I bounced off the rev limiter in 2nd she already had about 5 cars on me. I don't think she was really trying either. I usually get women in V8 SUV's thinking they can get around me and seeing my taillights so I wasn't really prepared to get spanked so severely.

It actually depends on how well your driving is. Last weekend at the Divisional autox, I had times that was faster than Jean Alft, current F Stock Ladies Champ and just a half a sec behind current B Prepared Ladies Champ, Amy Rose Herrick, after the Saturday runs. It was cool and cloudy and we all were in the same heat. Sun was a different story Jean were like a different driver and kicked my ***. Amy did not show up for Sun runs. However, for one day...
