Raced a VW Jetta (dont know what yr., not new one) from a 50mph roll to 100mph. He gunned it 1st, and it picked up pretty fast but then I gunned it... .

I killed him instantly, slowly moving through the powerband putting more carlengths on him! We did it 2x times and the same result each time. Too bad we raced on a bumpy hill. Killed my "ass" and my struts.

Just wanted to share w/ my fellow N/A brothers!

Too bad it wasn't a GTI or a 1.8T, then he would have given you a better race. My buddies girl has a 1.8 jetta, it is really slow. Good kill though:)

nice kill....

i'm supposed to race this kid w/ a stock vw jetta gti soon. i think it's a 97 or something...he thinks he's gonna kill me, i'm assuming i'm gonna win by a fair amount, especially since he just got the car.

well guess what...just got back from driving my car around lookin for a bit of fun...gues what i ran into :D

i don't know VWs very well, but it was a new looking 1.8T GTI...

pulled up next to me, and i didn't expect any race, but he dropped it and took off. he slowed down, and i came up next to him and we both dropped it at the same time...i was at about 65mph in 5th, dropped to 3rd and drove it til redline, but i was coming up to a car in front of me, so i let off...he was totally even w/ me the WHOLE time!!!

i talked to him afterwards, and he said it was stock. i had to get back home, so i didn't ask him what year or anything else more specific. i was very suprised...thought it was funny though, since i jsut posted on this thread...

and also, as an edit, my friend does NOT have a GTI, he has a VR6. i told ya i didn't know VWs... :rolleyes:

I raced a Jetta with my ES earlier this year.

I instantly put about 3 car lengths on him, I took it up to about 100 from 30 and he was way back there. The most expensive race so far though. I ended up getting a ticket for it for about $150, then traffic school. Lucky for me the cop just put down speeding.

To this day everytime i see the kid in the jetta, he laughs at me... fucker... the one time i wished i had a slower car.
