My best kill story? It was completely legal. I was at the second last street legal (1/4 mile) of the season, had a few runs in that night, and was starting to get used to launching my RHD, AWD, 3800lb beast of a GTO, when buddy comes cruising over from his 95 (ish) trans am. He then proceeds to tell me how my intercoolers are useless, because they will only heat up the air as it passes the exhaust manifold, and I will lose horsepower, and be slow. My reply, "Mitsubishi ran it this way for nearly 10 years. If it were a power robber, I'm sure they would have done something about it on the newer cars..." he continued on his import smack talking ways for a while, so I took the time to note his hood was closed. He was either new to the track, or just embarased about what he brought. Haha anywho, further down the line I get my helmet on, get in the staging lanes, and look who got staged with me? Mr. TA!
This will be awesome I thought to myself, bypassing the burnout box as he looks over in disbelief. Staged up to the tree, two yellow lights, 4000rpm, made the clutch cry a little bit on my miraculous .01 RT, and did NOT let off the gas untill the 1/4 was over. I saw nothing but headlights, and as I headed back into the staging lanes, he wouldn't come anywhere near me, or talk to me, or anything. Maybe my car isn't staggeringly fast, but if you're going to smack talk someones car, maybe you should have something that will run faster than a 15.8? Totally made my summer. Haha, and to boot, my ISC was pooched at the time. Idle was all over the place. Chevy boy 0, Real GTO +1 . Allll right!
Had some fun with dusting a 2011 STR8 w/ super charger I gave him a chance in the first round but he had no chance in the second round I cut off halfway through third coming up on a curve in the road, he was way behind me. Started from roll in 1st gear he was behind me, he jumped into the other lane with a head of steam and never passed me.

Raced a Porsche carrera 4s I don't know if its a 911 or whatnot. But first light line up I went, he didn't go. Second light I shifted at 2500 into second and he went so I gunned it with him and we were dead even. then I hit 3rd and got him by one car. He gave the thumbs up at the next light. All this was done 10 mins after getting a short throw shifter installed.
