So my buddy owns an 08 Cobalt. He things its all kick *** and its so fast. One night about 1am, theres a stretch of road where i was at in michigan, that you can race for a quarter mile or so and then it merges into one lane. So we line up at this light. Its one of those that has the center turn lane and its own separate signal. So I see the normal lanes start to time out and go to red, so i start spooling up the turbo. put it in 4 high and clicked towhaul on. His girlfriend is riding with him, she said the look on his face when i spooled it up was really funny. Our light turns green and i had a great launch by me. The car jumps out even with me, then it was all over but the crying.
My buddy was all pissed off because he thought his car was so fast and furious that he could beat anything he raced, even a turbo charged 7000 pound truck. Point of the story is when i hit 80 he was falling way back. He said i got him by about 3 car lengths. and to top it all off, He got pulled over right after it got to one lane.
Thank god that i knew that cop, i dated his daughter back in the day. my Buddy got a huge ticket.
