OK this friday march 1st around 9:50 pm-10:00 pm place on university state the 2nd light before u get to the bride that goes over the train tracks going towards the 210 fwy. i had my first race ever against a complete stranger( have raced my freinds a few times). i saw the guy aproaching next to me rather quickly.( him driving a honda what seemed to look like a new honda accord model or new civic couldnt really tell but it was blue with HID's.) so im like hmm maybe i should speed up i wouldnt want a honda passing me. so i did cuz he was so i floored it and i was getting the pull on him untill we were going up the bridge. still was stepping on it while reaching the top of the bridge but taking caution that their might be a redlight and traffic ahead. green light all the way and no traffic to be seen. the guy merges into my lane so i merge to the right lane and relying on downhill speed to catch up before reaching the light because it then merges into one. **** it passed the light was next to him and running out of lane so i kept going. guy starts to brake then i take my chance and go for the cut off. i was so concentrated on the foe and the race that i did not notice why he was braking. fucken semi-trailer in front shitt couldnt see it because it didnt have its cargo and without that their taillights and side markers arent really noticeable ( fucken turned into muscoy no dam sidewalks and dark) somehow i realize that **** was infront of me going 80-90mph with 4-5 cars lenths infront of me and i braked hard downshifted that mofo. my car served for a car lenth distance. managed to slow down and i decided to take a turn into blake street probably was down into 2nd gear going 25-30 mpg. what an adrenaline rush haha **** got home and all i smelled was rubber and brakes.

dude who ever you are if you come to csusb or if anyone from csusb knows you. all i wana say is good race although u had the advantage going up against a (ST-184) witch is 23yr old lol. im thinking you had a v6 under the hood but couldnt really tell maybe u had an SI civic and yeah my car is heavy for a compact 4in engine jaja. if ur from school comment on it ill shoot u a msg i want to know what you thought about it. i should have gone straight i think i would have managed to stop. i wanted to give u a dumbs up B)

I raced a lotus on my bike going 130. It was scary as heck lol
OMG hahaha, that is scary...

I'm a major Puss when it comes to racing... I don't think i've ever driven past 100 MPH (and not in my celica) and it was scary... I usually go 60-80 on the highway and I never take off fast... Love my baby too much to ever hurt her Celica <3

I remember my first race. So this guy in a Charger pulls up behind me in a one lane road and rides my ass. Well, person in front of me makes a right turn, so I slowed down. Charger gets impatient and blasts past me to a ree light. Well at the light, its a left hand turn that turns into two left turn lanes. He's in the right most lane, me left most. I look him over, just a basic charger body with those stupid hood pins. I revved him, he revved back. The light was about to change so I just smoked him out lol. Our light changed and within seconds he was far behind me. I go into my turn lane to go home and he comes up behind me and nearly clips me. Talk about a sore loser. I don't think he was expecting this old 80's car to smoke him like that lol.

BTW, I dislike the chargers. Too heavy. Our police force drives them with a couple crown vics. If I was a cop, I'd prefer the crown Vic tbh.

4th and 5th gens weigh the same, give or take a few pounds. I do feel heavier then my parents Honda accord, but I do feel pretty light. Granted I'm comparing from what I've driven, which is a 97 accord, 97 cavalier, 02 ram, and a Prius. I felt the cavalier and Prius were way heavier then my car. But then again, as Prius is a snail lol
