I was driving in Winnipeg the other night on a street that is four wide. It has a few lights not many and is great for quarter mile racing.
I pull up to a light just casually driving along enjoying the somewhat warm night (-4 is warm considering -25 is the norm) when I hear this reving beside me, I look over and there is quite the Jetta. Forest green and by the noise I am sure this guy was running a short ram intake and exhaust. So I slip the bonne into D from OD, switch the tranny to performance sift and begin reving at about 4k.
Light goes green and I take off to chirping tires. Perfect timing cause name of the game by crystal method came on just as I took off. We were fairly even but the dude shifted while I was still in first and I was still going, then I redlined, shifted and I never looked back. I had clearly one so I slowed down to the speed limit, I rounded a curve and there was the Po-Po radaring people.
Phew somebody was smiling on me that day.
